I just moved away from home for the first time to attend graduate school. I have left behind my dear family and friends but also my boyfriend of almost 2 1/2 years. We are very close and strong and have discussed being married, having children, and our lives together in the future many many times.
Since there are a lot of holidays during the Fall semester we will be able to visit each other quite often. We talk on the phone a couple times a day and I am looking at buying a new computer with a camera so that we can skype. He is coming up in about two weeks and we are going to celebrate our 2 1/2 year anniversary then. We have discussed a promise ring, but I do not want to get my hopes up. We are both devoted to what we have. I am strictly here for school and work and he still has a year left of school back home, so we will both be busy that nothing should come between us.
I was just curious as to how if any of you have experienced a long-distance relationship what you did to keep it exciting and fun. I am terribly worried that we will not make it, and he knows my feelings but reassures me it is only for a little while and that we are going to be just fine. Does anyone have any advice for me?
