So I've been seeing the same gal now for 10 months. Good relationship, everything I'd want in a lady-friend for the most part. We're really committed to our future and making it work. We met in BC but I was always planning on moving to Minnesota to transfer grad programs, so I left BC 3 weeks ago. The ironic thing is that she's from minnesota... so that's kind of cool. What I've been pondering is this: what keeps the relationship alive from a distance? We're not in each other's daily lives anymore, we don't have the same friends right now, and there isn't sexual engagement to help keep the spark alive. I'm not concerned with cheating or anything like that... I'm just a little concerned that after a certain amount of time, I'll just kind of get used to not having her around. I'll make new habits without her. Any advice on how to keep my head in the game?
