This thread isn't so much about any specific help with LDR, just general stuff. I'll start. My girlfriend and I met through work and started seeing each other a bit. We really liked each other and started dating (Not officially a couple) for about a month. A few days before we started dating I got my letter of acceptance from RIT, a college in New York. I'm from Michigan. So with that being said we started officially dating (we like to call it facebook official ) with the notion we both knew I was leaving in 7 months. We both went ahead even despite the fact, and enjoyed ourselves. I moved here to NY in the middle of august. So far it's been great for both of us. I think one thing that really helps our situation is that we are both extremely busy with school (She is doing her student teaching right now, graduating in December) and I'm going full time and working as well. I've never ever had a moment where I didn't trust her, and I hope she can say the same thing about me. The reason it's good that we're both so busy is because there is pretty much a 0% chance that we'd be able to 'meet' someone or hangout with anyone, ya know? As far as I feel, I really feel like it's made our relationship stronger in the long run. Sure it sucks to not be able to see her, but she is so supportive. She always reminds me that I'm doing this for us (Graduates from RIT get great jobs) so we can start our future together. Honestly I'd tell any couple that seriously love each other to move away, see what happends. I know it's made it clear how much she means to me and visa versa. Anyway, if anyone has similar stories, or any bad/good stories post em up!
