My husband and I spent the first five months of our relationship IM’ing back and forth between West Virginia and Delaware. All I can say is, yep, that’s exactly what its like. Long-distance relationships can work out! Good luck to you both. 😀
My husband was in Korea for the year before our wedding. Then on several deployments our first few years. Even after getting out of the army, we’ve had three long distance moves where’s he’s had to go on ahead. It’s hard, very hard. And if it don’t kill ya’, it really will make you stronger.
Been there, done that. My husband and I met online in a Christian chat room seven years ago, in the early days of ICQ. We had hours and hours of conversations like that. We have random ones saved and occasionally we uncover them and get quite a laugh out of it. And recently I read about something called ‘couple-surfing’ which is a couple, each with their respective computers, sitting next to each other, surfing the internet, reading each other excerpts of what they find. We totally do that! Yes, we’re geeks. And we love it 🙂
