Hello Other LDR Goers,
Although my experience is not overseas, I have been in LDR for the last 14 months with an incredible man. We are lucky to see each other about once a month no more than 5-6 weeks in between. He was just here this last weekend and we had an incredible time together- always do! However, saying ta ta for now is not easy. My advice is to have another visit scheduled before the end of the current one, if and when possible. Having another visit to look forward to goes a very long way. Some other things my sweet beau and I do long distance are: read the same book, read out loud on the phone, watch TV/movies at the same time. Of course we email, text, Tango and talk nonstop on the phone. We set up time to stretch together and I would like to start meditating. I do long distance Reiki on him and I find that to be fulfilling. I really love sending him love letters/cards in the mail (kind of old fashion). If it weren’t for technology though, I would never attempt a LDR. My man read me an article last night about soul mates, stating in this day of age, we no longer need a husband/wife in order to survive (income, security, etc) because we are all much more independent. Thus we are not looking for husband/wife we are looking for a soul mate to meet our emotional and sexual needs. This is so very hard to accomplish over the phone, but when you love someone and believe in the relationship sacrifices are made. I have a lot more to say on the topic, but I must get back to work. Stay focused, stay faithful and use your words to meet those needs that body language typically does for you. Get creative and always let that person know how very special they are. Maybe I’ll write more later.
