    Met

    Saw each other for a week
    really hit it off
    Exclusive for 4 more weeks

    BF leaves for legitimate 'work' training - where he will be gone for 8 weeks.

    Trepidation understandable?

    8 weeks is a long time in a very new relationship. I think you two should have a nice dinner together, talk about what you expect from each other during that time, and if all goes well have rabid sex to seal the deal.

    It is a lot tougher to stray from the path if you clearly mark it beforehand.

    no contact avail, at all. "company" frowns on same sex relationships

    we did talk before hand, basically "we'll pick back up" and "if you need to you can get stuff taken care of, but be safe"

    told him, he can't cheat (cuz of work) so i won't.


    but time apart longer than time together . . .

    My previous bf and I were together three months before he had to take off for the other side of world (literally...he went to Egypt) to tend to an ailing family member for three months. Communication was extremely limited, save for a few e-mails here and there. Even though it was a new relationship I was very much in love and those were a significantly challenging three months. He returned and his dad fell ill and so he left several times more for months on end.

    Bottom line? Our relationship lasted six years. I think part of our ability to remain together was based on the trust we were forced to develop--as well as independence--while we were apart. There is also something about that kind of distance and limited communication that helped us realize that all the minimal crap that people get fussed over doesn't really matter. Despite the distance between us geographically, we grew closer emotionally and spiritually.

    If there's real love there, you'll be fine.

    One more thing: though he and I recently split, I can safely say those were the most amazing six years of my life thus far.
