I've always said "I will never, ever get myself caught up in one of those excruciating nightmares known as long distance relationships." And look where I am now... D:
I met someone at a convention (lol, giant nerd) who goes to school several hours away from me. We haven't said the boyfriend/girlfriend word yet, but there have been kisses and promises to visit exchanged.
You'll have to make your own judgment call. Not seeing each other face to face except for summer isn't going to work out, no matter how much you like him.
Do you have a means of visiting him? Perhaps you can drive out every other weekend and spend the whole day with him (or sleep over, if you're okay with it.
Adium is a good choice for an IM client that supports many protocols, including both AIM and MSN.
AIM support XMPP now anyway so pretty much any XMPP client will work on it.
amsn does nifty things like voice and video chat. Works on most OSes too, including mac. :D
We talked on the phone a bit last night, but not for long because I had work to do and was really tired. ;_;
Well, if you like him don't let the distance stand in your way. And look who's talking, I had a girlfriend 5000km from me :) Didn't work out :(
hey, if you really do like him things will work out!
i'm in a LDR, and there is 3000 miles of ocean seperating us. so, i cant just drive over to see her. I'd give anything to be in your position xD so i'd say GO FOR IT!!!
dont let the distance get in the way. it'll become a problem at like, the 2-3 month mark, but after a while you get over it
I might as well update with the sad ending to this short saga: he has a new girlfriend who is not me. Apparently I was okay with the distance but he was not.
