Long Distance Relationship
I just want other readers to know that a long-distance relationship can work if both parties are "in" to it. It takes a lot of sacrifice and compromise on both sides, but the rewards are well worth it. I met my current girlfriend my last semester of college at Purdue University when she was a freshman. Neither of us were looking for anything serious, especially since I was graduating soon and she was just starting her college career.
We immediately began spending all of our free time together. We got along great. I had never been with anyone so wonderful. We had so much fun together. And of course, as the time went on, we both developed very serious feelings for each other. But this was okay until I accepted a job offer in Chicago. We were having a hard enough time dealing with this distance when I was offered a 1-month trip in Houston on my first day of work. I wasn't able to reach her the day I left, so I didn't talk to her again until I was in my new apartment in Houston. She freaked out...cried for about half an hour and I thought I had lost her forever. But she soon calmed down when I told her that the company agreed to fly me home for the weekend after two weeks (which would be the next time we would be able to see each other again even if I was in Chicago.) I ended up living in Houston for 6 months and we both learned to cope with being apart. The weekend trips home every two weeks helped.
After leaving Houston, I spent the next 5 months travelling between Salt Lake City, Reno and Houston. I didn't spend an extended amount of time in Chicago until 11 months after I graduated. I lived in Chicago for 3 months. Unfortunately, things weren't much different. I still only saw her about every other weekend. She even spent three weeks of her Christmas vacation with me and it turned out to be a disaster! We had become so accustomed to living apart, that we had forgot how to deal with each other on a day-to-day basis. At the end of the three month stay in Chicago, I moved to Reno for 5 months and then Tyler, Texas for 7 months. That brings us up to the present. I am leaving Tyler in about three weeks and moving to Allentown, Pennsylvania for at least 6 months. And from there, who knows? I work for a large construction company headquartered in Chicago. However, most of their work is now out-of-town and I am willing to do the travelling. I enjoy visiting cities all over the country that I have never been and would not have gone to if it had not been for work.
My girlfriend and I have come a long way since the time of my graduation. Eventually I will stop travelling, but not until she at least finishes school. If things continue to work out as good as they are now, we plan to move out west and settle down together once she graduates. We believe that if we can carry on a successful relationship under these circumstances, we can do anything together!
