I just wanted to leave a happy update for anyone in this situation as I feel people rarely update.
So we have kept this going with no expiration date. So far it has been great. We don’t have anything forced but talk regularly. Sad because he left again today after coming back to spend two weeks with me. It has been pretty seamless so far and we have our next trip planned and he’s actively trying to move here. On his most recent trip here he also spent time trying to speak with people who will result in a job interview here for him. We don’t plan on cutting communication or stopping plans to see each other any time soon.
Feeling ok, although every time he leaves again it is sad.
