Why not see each other on weekends, alternating twice a month or so? Then if it gets serious make those kinds of plans.
I absolutely agree. I dated a guy for 3 years who lived an hour and 45 minutes away from me. We would see each other about every other weekend. Sometimes we would manage to see each other two weekends in a row and sometimes we would both be busy and we wouldn't see each other for 3 weeks or (rarely) 4 weeks. It was the most incredible relationship I've ever been in. We talked on the phone a lot, texted a lot, skyped, messaged on here, visited on weekends, travelled together. The cool thing about it was that when we did see each other it was really special. Almost like a mini vacation. When you live in the same city as someone, it is easy to fall into a rut: movie, TV, dinner, sex, sleep. But, since we only saw each other about every other weekend, we'd usually spend at least 2 days together and we planned full out adventures. It had to be special. Those 2 days were packed with fun and laughter and zany adventures. We only broke up because he's in the military and had to move too far away. Our communication was AMAZING. Nothing but honesty and cooperation together.
An important part of the relationship was that we didn't put pressure on the other half to spend time together. Sometimes thing came up. Neither one of us would give the other a guilt trip. We would just say "Oh, cool. I'll miss you. Let's try for next weekend." It just made me miss him more to know that there were no guilt trips coming. Who wouldn't love to spend 2 or 3 days with someone laughing and rough housing the whole time?
If it ever became too much because of the distance, we were both open to talking about that. We wanted something that felt good for both of us. It was.
