My boy and I are about to embark on a long-distance relationship. We've known each other for four and a half years and been living together for about 18 months. I think we've got things pretty together--home-base purchased here in Tokyo, career timeline planned so he can join me in about 18 months, even vague retirement plans in order. We're not fusssed about it; we're in our forties, and while we have an active sex life, it ain't like we need to jump each other's bones every minute of the day. But I still imagine that it will be tough. Anyone else have experience with an LDR? Love to hear your stories.
