To Girl (RE: Long Distance Relationship
Hi Girl

Sorry for only applying now. Hope you see my post. With regards to your question on how my boyfriend and I made our long distance relationship work:

Firstly my boyfriend working overseas is not a long term plan. He is only doing it to build a nest egg for us and will not do it for longer than a year. We are lucky that his contracts or not longer than 4 months with a 6 week break in between, which gives us time to reconnect. I support him completely and let him know regularly how proud I am of him. We are in contact via phone, sms or email everyday. The rules of commitment and faithfulness apply even more during his time away, as it does for me. There was a possibility that he would have had a contract for 6 months. If this was the case I we would have arranged for me to go and visit him. I think it is also important to keep the romance alive even if you are thousands of kilometres apart.

Hope this answers your question, but feel free to ask me anything more you would like to know. I'd be happy to help.
