The Thing with DR

I feel better after a good talk yesterday evening.  I love him, he loves me, and we want to try.  Seems like it is going to be about a year, but I can do that for the long run.  We have about another month until he goes.  I want to just enjoy it, get through the next few months, and then get on with our life together.  Thanks so much for all you've said over the past couple of days as I agonized over this...and I don't kid myself, I know there is agony to come.  But I do have you guys :-)

I am so glad you are finding a way to work it out. It's so hard sometimes.

Tara said...

Anytime! But I'm so glad that the two of you are going to try and make it work. The love and the effort is definitely there.

Pamela said...

A year is definitely doable. Good.

Churlita said...

There we go. That's all I would need. An end date and some reassurance.

maybe you guys can each try and visit each other to break up that year too.

Secret: It will be hard, but I am feeling much better about it now.

Tara: Your thoughtful words really do mean a LOT to me.
And you're right, the love is there. We can make the effort.

NoRegrets: Yes, it feels less overwhelming now.

Churlita: We both can have a problem getting things really talked out, but once we did I felt much better.
I am definitely hoping for a visit or two...maybe one his way, one mine.

I could simply reiterate many of the thoughts already stated, or I could go in my own direction. Which I will.

We live in the 21st century. It is so much easier to stay in touch with the one you love nowadays. It may not be exactly like being there, but it is so much better than years ago. You'll make it through this.

AlienCG: You're so right. After all, for DR and I long distance is how it all started, and I think we can manage this time. Thanks.
