Y’know, most of the time this whole long-distance relationship really sucks. I mean, I’m absolutely head-over-heels in love with the woman I’ve been searching for all of my life and, for the time being, we’re unable to be together in the way that we want.
She can’t move any time soon (3-4 years at least) because she shares 50/50 custody with her ex-husband and he’s actually NOT a deadbeat dad (though he’s a HUGE douchebag but that’s another story). He has said that when the girls are older, things may change and they may want to live with one parent more than the other…but there’s no exact timetable right now.
I can’t move any time soon because I’m not yet ready to be an “every other weekend” dad, especially where my son is only four. As he grows older, things may change…but I just don’t know how long that will be.
So Universe, all I’m asking is that you take care of Sunshine during this period and help her go through day-to-day life.
Me? I’m doing okay. I’ve been through a lot recently and I feel as though I’m strong enough to deal with whatever you want to throw at me. And to be honest, the way I see it is I’ve been waiting my entire life to find this woman so if I have to wait a few more years before we’re able to live under the same roof, then I’m 100% willing to do it because I never want to lose her.
She wants this change made sooner rather than later. For the record, I feel the same way but I just don’t see it happening unless one of us wins the lottery.
Listen, my intentions are to marry Sunshine…period. That’s the plan. I don’t know when it’s going to happen but I certainly don’t want it to wait until we’re finally living together. It’s quite possible to live in a long-distance marriage (info can be found here, here, & here) and I know that we’re both going to have to work very hard if that ends up being the case. So Universe…please help both of us manage and cope with this ridiculous “every two weekend” relationship until the stars align and we’re finally together.
I don’t want to lose her. I don’t want her to suffer because of the distance. I want our lives to be as one. I want us to live under the same roof as one, big, happy family.
Is that too much to ask?
