    Hey, there. I need to update my profile as it says I'm in CA, actually in Seoul South Korea. My boyfriend of one year is moving to the US 9 months before I am. Just wondering if anyone has any experience with that and what tips/advice you would offer.

    We decided against an open relationship and decided against breaking up. We deeply love each other, but it's a long time apart. Any advice would be helpful. Thanks!

    honestly, if you say an open relationship and breaking up are off the table, but you need help getting through nine months without each other, you should probably reevaluate options one and two.

    Not to sound crass - but I semi-second Calibro's comment. That said - this is 2012... not the mid-80s when I started dating! YOU have WAY more options than I did. SKYPE being a big one. Sure - it's not the same as being there - but it can be a major help to see and talk with your loved one in real-time. And if you're into it - you can have naughty-fantasy-video fun too(!)

    This was SOOOO NOT an option when I was your age. Flirt with text messages - send naughty clips and sweet little videos to each other - Send an occasional CARD or gift basket to each other.

    USE YOUR IMAGINATION. What would you want done to/for you... well... do it for HIM!!! icon_wink.gif

    lot of dirty filthy cam session. Make bunch of promises and last but not least, pray.

    To be perfectly honest, there's not much you can do. You can skype, you can text each other goodnight and thats about it.

    9 months will go fast as I split with my b/f 9 months ago and never went with anyone until now I have a new b/f but we live apart!


    Stick it out !

    Thanks. I really like the naughty video fantasy idea (manboynyc). We've been on different continents before (me visiting family back in the US and him working in Korea and vice-versa).

    I know it'll be worth it in the end, but DAMN I will miss him a lot.

    Get an ugly fling to fuck on the side while he's gone. Then when y'all meet up again, the sex will be refreshingly awesome. icon_biggrin.gif

    Communication, honesty, and transparency are key. If one of those three is missing, you can rest assured that it's only a matter of time before your relationship ends. Every time you think about screwing someone (assuming you continue to be in an LD mono relationship with you bf), remember to always ask yourself if it is worth it. If the answer is yes, then you have no business being in your relationship.

    9 months is not the end of the world. Unless you two are totally bereft of funds, consider having a couple of short vacations halfway in between, were you could fuck your brains out for a few days . I am not sure geographically where that would be - Hawaii, Australia, the Philippines, the Cook Islands, come to mind.

    I'm a bit rusty with memes, so excuse me for asking, but what does this mean? Are you suggesting that the OP put his sperm in a ziploc bag and ship it to his boyfriend?

    P.s. I agree with HikeswimskiSF; you can still visit each other within the 9 months, right?
