Emm - it is, when for half the time he didn't have a vehicle and I have to drive up over a mountain to get there.
Now he does have a car, but it is being shared with his wife and most of the time he can't use it for various reasons. I can count on one finger the number of times he has driven it to my house. So, it very much seems like a LDR to me! I have a mini van and it's $15 for gas per round trip. (Again, mountain!) That makes getting a cup of coffee a little bit more of an expensive proposition! It's something I am willing to do, and can afford to do, but it isn't at all the same as if someone could drive to me half the time, or if they lived less than 5 miles from my house - which my new potential, B, can and does.
