I met my soulmate right here on EP. I have read about and heard about people that fall in love online and I have also heard the horror stories. I can tell you that I knew my lady in previous lives and was so happy to finally find her in this one. The first time we saw each other there was no uneasy-ness or uncomfortably. We were like two people that had been separated but finally found each other. We have so many positives. But the distance of almost 800 miles is a torture. She has her job i have my job. We both are pretty well tied down to the cities where we live. The Good thing is that in January we have worked it out that we will finally be together. Really though, the only good thing about being separated like we are is the we find out just how true our love and commitment really is. We find out what we are made of and we are most definitely stronger individually as well as together. But I just hate the distance. It doesn't matter if you separated by 10 miles or 100 miles. If the situation prevents us from being together, it becomes our own private hell. I do believe that there is a hidden lesson in this somewhere but I'm not enjoying it. I was looking at some of my stories and some of hers and realized how much we really have changed from what we were when we met some 16 months ago. Life and it's experiences, adventures and lessons are so intricate, but so simple at the same time. We both will both be so happy when we are finally together. I just wish there were a way to rush it all up.
