I don’t actually remember what JT calls this segment, so I made my own title. You know the drill, right? Every Tuesday we share stories and thoughts in the comments. Whee! [Edit: JT's been calling this Tuesday Conversations.]
Today the topic is long distance relationships. Have you tried it? Did it work out? Are you in one now? What made it work or not work?
You may be aware, JT and I have been living far apart during our entire relationship (I’m in Lawrence, KS and he’s in Columbus, OH). We have dinner dates and movie dates over Skype. Honestly, Skype has been the key to keeping us sane.Our goal for this year was to see each other in person at least once a month, but we’ve been together more often than that. It’s still really difficult, and we both hate being apart for weeks at a time. Having to say goodbye at the airport is one of my least favorite things. Still, we’re both terrible happy to have the other in our life, and we are of the opinion that that happiness is worth putting up with the distance.
