    I am in a awesome relationship with a guy who is actually from my hometown. He usually comes up every month to visit family and myself. However, he is currently in the Marines and is stationed on base in San Diego which is about 500 miles away. He really cannot visit me often nor can I. We have so many things in common but the distance and frequency which we see each other has caused us to reconsider. Should I improvise to make this work or simply give up. I'm very afraid he is going to ultimately loose his attraction for me and look for someone closer. I really love this guy! So what should I do boys?

    if you really loved this guy, you wouldn't need to ask us what to do.

    If the love you have for each other is mutual and strong, you'll both find ways to make it work. If, however, one is less willing than the other, it will become pretty clear--at which point you'll both have to clearly communicate with each other about where you want it to go.

    Ldr cut the mojo out of my ltr cause having full interaction with someone via my 5 senses makes more sense to me... and I can't click with someone if I can't use my 5 senses to begin with... but, good for you. Good luck with that, do your best for your and him and move if you feel it's right ; )

    In your case a long distance relationship could actually work because you know he'll eventually be coming back to town and there is a set timeframe, I'm assuming. Eventually his service will be over right? Question is do you love him enough and is he worth waiting for? Only you can answer that.
