I recently took a huge leap of faith and traveled 500 miles to spend a weekend with a great man I met online. As it turns out, it was the best weekend of my life, and leaving was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. We click in every way and neither of us wanted to let go when the time came for me to get on my plane and come home.
I know many Dopers’ long-distance relationships have survived and evolved into the real thing, and I need to know how you managed it.
It’s only been two days since I left and already we’re missing each other horribly and thinking about each other all the time. If we were in the same town, we’d be going out every night. Or staying in every night. Going back to chatting over MSN or the phone is just painful after we’ve giggled together snuggled on the sofa, but it’s all we can do for now and we spent 3 hours talking last night.
How? How can I manage this without going crazy? He’s coming to see me in a month, which will be wonderful, and we’re trying to figure out some places that are halfway between us so we can meet there and spend some weekends together somehow. But how do we get through the in-between times without losing our minds?
