Distance can be daunting, especially if you’re in a new relationship or if it’s under stress (like during a deployment). By the way, this post may contain affiliate links and this blog is for entertainment purposes only.“I don’t know what we can talk about anymore.”It’s a fear and concern I hear from folks in long distance relationships all the time. Will you be OK with me hanging out with you and your friends? If you could change something about your life, what would it be? Do you think it is important to learn any form of a performing art? Do you have a criminal record, any contraction of diseases?
When we tell that to people, they sometimes look at us like we’re absolutely out of our minds.
If your job started negatively impacting our relationship, what would you do?
If you are allowed to do just one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be? What are some things about you that you take pride in? What is the most courageous thing you have ever done in your life?
But that was part of the excitement of our conversations– learning new things about each other, asking each other goofy questions, being able to share life with each other as much as we could.
And those skills, that interest in each other, helped us deal with a year-long deployment when we couldn’t see each other on weekends or be in touch with each other as much as we wanted.
What do you think of this expression: Where there was fire, ashes remain. What sort of future financial plans/goals do you have?
