Thanks for the welcome! Yes, long distance is a pain, although so far it has worked for us. We do realise though that work has become too big a part of both our lives, and that someone, somewhere needs to give. It'll be the big Christmas discussion this year.
But yes, there are moments we'd wish we could simply lie in each others' arms and comfort each other. Right now is one of those moments. I write about it in a different post: http://www.polyamory.com/forum/showthread.php?t=945
We're not afraid of losing each other because of the distance, or that we would grow apart. I guess we're more afraid of losing time. Time to spend together, perhaps with others, and to start a family.
