I 've heard so many people say long distance relationship never last or long distance relationship can last. But what about when the long distance isn't really the distance but actually the distance in what we want and need from a relationship? He was handsome, kind and caring, 48 years old and never married, no children and only lived a short distance away. Purrrfect you think - well think again. I have my own home, two teens, a job and way too many animals so I got my own stuff going on too. We seemed to see each other a couple times a week and after a year and half of this I began to ask the big question "Hey, where is this going? Do you see us moving in or moving on?" This went round and round for about 6 months and finally we both realized neither one of us wanted to make that drive anymore.
After some wallowing in self pity and hanging out with the girlfriends I finally met another man who seemed nice. This one lived a bit farther but still only about 20 minutes from here. The kicker not only was he a farmer, but a big rig trucker. Talk about no time for relationships! I constantly had to compete for time with birthing calfs and long distance hauls, but again continued on this way for another...you guessed it year and a half (slow learner) I reached that question, "Where is this going. Hey are we moving in or moving on?" Again I got a lot of run around well, "...the cows....the truck ... the cattle shows I'm a busy guy". So I had to make the decision again and decided to cut my losses before it was another 6 months of my life wasted on long distance relationships that were only 20 minutes away. Still 50 and still looking.
