The BF and I have been in a long distance relationship for...well forever....or at least it feels that way. Phone calls, texts, emails and the few and far between visit just doesn't do it sometimes. Doesn't matter how hard you work on staying connected being long distance is hard and you really have to work together to stay together.
I've had a number of friends (who have also been in LDR) advise on how important it is to have an "End Date"....meaning at some point one of you needs to move closer to the other and/or relocate together. And the BF and I have talked about this. About how I'd really like to stay in my current job (at least) another year and the possibilities of him moving to Oregon.
That's why I was so glad when he said how even though Portland had never really been on his list of "go-to" places, he really enjoyed his time here in February and wants to spend more time here exploring. Muahaha my plan worked... Portland = Fun AND has me to boot! Whooo! Hopefully it won't be long until we're together and in the same place again.
