Long distant relationships take special people to make it work, that’s basically the only type of relationship I would feel comfortable with. I really don’t want someone coming over all the time as I have my son and this is our home and I am a very private person.
Being with someone 2-3 times a month would work for me just fine as long as we had other forms of communication. Sometimes, when you are just getting back into the dating scene, a long-term relationship works fine and for me it would be perfect. I cannot go anywhere until my son graduates and I will not uproot him.
I don’t think I would want to see anyone more than several times a month at this point in my life. I want to get to know someone slowly and that would be the best way for me. Long distant relationships show the real person in many ways, how they deal with anticipation, frustration, anger, resentment all these emotions come out over time.
I do not want to get married but would if it would help my husband out, I would do what I had to help him out with what little I have to offer. Sometimes people have long distant relationships because they are convenient for them or they fulfill the needs and sometimes they happen because there is no way the relationship could work any other way at that time.
If your love can withstand a long distant relationship and all the restraints on it, then you know you have something special, something long-lasting and something that will last a lifetime. I want a lifetime with someone, the man of my dreams, the man who holds my heart but I doubt it will ever happen and that hurts.
