Relationship

I could bang on and on and on and on about the injustice of it all. The law of sod and the frustration of meeting someone just before you're due to leave the country. Then the slow realisation that this is maybe more than a fling; when it dawns on you that the unexpected, the thing we should have put distance between us to prevent happening, has happened. The commitment-phobe and the independent traveller are a couple in a relationship - and they're two months in.

But we do enough of that moping every day at the moment. We'll be staring at each other across a table, or wrapped up in a duvet, when one of us will let out a groan and the other will go "What?" and the answer will be simply "Don't go". Or alternatively, "Come with me".

In answer to that, today he booked his tickets to join me on the second half of my trip. Even as I type, it feels ridiculous to plan so far ahead. Written down, it looks silly. April 2010. April. Next year. 5 months. But in our heads, we think it could work. We know the risks, we've talked, and we're mutually anxious about the same things - but banking on things still being the same.

It's a long shot, a 11682 mile shot in fact, but you gotta give it a try, yeah?

you should always give love a try, no matter how great the distance :)

I think I mentioned before that my friends had been together for a few months when she went off to Aus for 6 months travelling. They both waited for each other and when she came back things were still great and now they live together x

Yikes! Bloody good for you!

If it works out it works out, if it doesn't than so what? Whatever happens at least you won't have spent your time thinking about the EX.

They say when you get old, you don't regret what you did, you regret what you didn't do (I don't think they include murder and such like in that).

Good luck! I'm only ever so slightly jealous:)
