    We've all been there at one point or another: boy meets boy, boy lives far away.

    If you found "true love" would you:

    A. Try for a long distance, see each other when you can.

    B. Relocate

    C. Pass- if it was meant to be you'll end up together some day


    It will be interesting to see your responses.

    -R

    I met my bf at the time 2yrs ago. After 3 months of emails, texting, and phone calls we decided to meet July 4th weekend. He flew out from Jacksonville out to LA to visit me. We clicked instantly and started see each other as much as possible. Due to me just starting a new job at the time, i couldn't really take time off to visit him. Luckily since he owned his own business, he was able to travel out 2x a month to visit me. All was going well and we had a wonderful Christmas with my family. We knew that eventually I would move out to Florida to be with him cause that is where his business was located. The following year, I was let go from my job and I was available to move sooner than we expected. Well prior to move lots of things came up mostly on my end and I decided to break it off. I got cold feet, but there were other issues in the relationship that was making it difficult for me too want to stay together. I realized later that I had commitment issues. My bf was british and had I did move over to Florida I would have had a rude awakening of finding out from him that he got deployed back to England for a whole year. Thus, I would have been left alone in Florida. I guess things had a reason for working out the way it did. Today we are just friends and my ex did eventually meet his new bf locally there in northern florida. Looks like they have a long distance relationship now hehe. So that was kinda of my almost move story hehe.

    At 21, I met someone while on sabbatical from school. I went back to school, and we both slept with someone else (Hence, why I think long distance only works for a certain person).

    He visited me, and the feelings between us never changed. SO, I dropped out of my private religious school and moved to PHX with himicon_smile.gif We spent the next ~4 years together, and it was great.

    I chose "A". While my bf and I haven't always had a long distance relationship... it was chosen. It has some strains, but we are still with it.

    D. Understand that that decision can only be made on a case-by-case basic, because circumstances can be very dynamic.
