My boyfriend and I also happen together for over 5 years and came across while I became working abroad. From the time then we have been in a long-distance relationship and live 1,500 kilometers apart. I will be self-employed and have always been frequently delivered to work with the nation where he lives. He comes over regularly therefore we come across one another every five to 10 times or more, which up to now has ideal us perfectly.
Nonetheless, not long ago I have begun to concern this set-up. At first glance it appears we’ve an ideal relationship – our company is never ever tired of one another, and count down the days before we could be together once again. We now have our space that is own and of the time to dedicate to those activities we enjoy. Yet we am constantly confronted with concerns from well-meaning family and friends how sustainable our relationship is and perhaps that features planted seeds of question within my head. This, along with the very fact if we lived together, make me wonder whether the relationship is viable that I often do miss my partner and think about the things we would enjoy as a couple.
