If you know me at all, I am not sure exactly who is reading these blogs, you know I am in a long distance relationship. I reside currently in San Diego, and he is currently in San Fransisco. So there is no hopping in the car after I’ve had a bad day to drive a few hours to see him, thats either a 9 hour drive, or a plane ride.
SO as a consequence I have been doing a lot of flying lately, I go up at least once every other month, and he comes down to me the other months. It has been working out acceptably, but I am not going to say that it has been easy, it takes a different kind of effort to make something like that work, and there are a lot more missed connections it feels like. You also cant just walk over and be like ‘hey lets do this’ because you have limited time together and most of the time we end up planning to do way more things than we actually have time for or end up doing.
Many people ask me if its worth it, but to me of course it is, otherwise I wouldn’t be putting in so much effort.
