Love of My Life

I've been in an international relationship (UK/US) for 3 years now. We met online 4 years ago as co-workers. Since 2005, we have been going back and forth to live with one another. The longest period of time we've ever spent apart is 3 months. He's a wonderful person and I couldn't imagine myself being with anyone else.

That's excellent! My girlfriend is from Korea and Im from Canada, we met at university in the UK. We've been together about 6 months now and have gone back to our home countries. It's been 3 months apart now, I plan to go visit her in a month and a half.<br />

Just wondering, what type of work do you do that allows you to travel/live back and forth in each others' countries?

I met my love here on EP a very short time ago. He is from London and I am from Ohio. He is coming to see me for 10 days in June. I would never in a million years have dreamed this would have happened. Any tips? Thanks!

Wow, I haven't gotten to do the traveling as of yet. Double Wow, my love is currently working in Newcastle, and has for the last 9 months, when the project is over, he will come to me here in Alaska.

That is fantastic!!! Are there kids involved? I have a 9 year old daughter and she loves to brag that she's been to England 3 times LOL<br />

What part of US and UK? I'm in Michigan and he's in Newcastle (North east)

hi there! i was just wondering how you handle your long distance relationship where there is a child involved? i have a 6 year old and we have been traveling to the UK, vice versa. he is from hamsphire and i am from GA. we planned to get married but have held it off because of the uncertainties and "unsure". i know this is common but how do you overcome that? we have been together for 3 years and my son loves him. he has a son but no custody so i have decided that we do the uprooting. any advice? thanks :)
