It's difficult. And it's a completely different kind of relationship than building a life together. I hear what you're saying about building connections in person. There are so many types of connection that don't happen with each other when it's long distance.

I completely agree. It doesn't always look the way we think it will look. But, we always have what we need.

That's wonderful! It sounds like they are all mono? How has that worked for you?

Sometimes, it's the most important step. There is no sense in being with someone you love if you are not thriving. It's not fair to either person and not fun. If you want to share yourself, wouldn't you want to be the best "you" you can be? *sigh* Doesn't make this easier.
My heart is too big to fit into one person.
