Wanderlust Over Romance

This is the second time I've put our relationship through the trial of a long-distance relationship in order to pursue something abroad. I love travelling and living abroad. Unfortunately my significant other isn't able to join me in my global escapes but has been unbelievable understanding and supportive with my ambitions.

I have to say though that if we survive this, this will probably be the last time I put this amount of strain on our relationship. We're both at the age where we're thinking about settling down and having a 'normal' life but I don't regret the amount of independence and personal growth that we're achieving through this separation.

Yes! Of course I miss him.<br />
<br />
But, I don't ever want to look back on my life regretting a life-changing decision I didn't make. I guess the difference in my situation is that I know my time abroad/away from him has a finish date.<br />
One day, this will be all finished with a sweet reunion at the end of it.

I can't imagine willingly putting my relationship through that. I am in a long distance relationship and everything I do id to take steps to get us closer together. Don't you miss them?
