I am. Well temporarily. Met my bf at the end of February.. about a week later his work sent him to Nebraska for a job project. We continued to talk and decided to start a relationship about a month after meeting. I figured I
Went through a lot of Army training and a 12 month deployment with my exhusband.. 4 1/2 months will be nothing..and he is only a few hundred miles away not thousands.. So we continue to talk daily.. I see him every other Saturday when he is home.. Here we are almost 3 months after meeting still doing really well. I cant wait til he is back for good in July though. He makes me happy. Its the first relationship Ive ever taken things slow in....but the first serious one since my divorce this past November.. Its what I need right now..not to rush into anything.

About him: He has a good career. His own place & car.. In other words he is stable. He is also divorced...has been for a few years. He has 3 kids (13,
11, and 9).. and is very involved with them. There is no exwife drama lol. He is 5' 11".. (so much taller than Im used to.. Im 5' 4".. my ex was only like 5' 8").. He is 35 (turns 36 on May 31st).. (Im 28 & so is my ex).. first guy ive dated that was more than a year or two older.. He isnt into playing games.. He is very trustworthy too.

Like I said he really makes me happy and I hope this ends up at the very least something longterm.. Still have just over two months until he is back home for good.. and I CANNOT wait.. then I'll get to see him more.

That's more ideal for a long distance relationship. At least the distance will be short lived. I tried long distance before and it just didnt work for me. It doesnt work when there is no plan in place and it has no end in sight.

Where did you meet a nice guy like that? just wondering

Oh ya if it was permanently long distance I don't think I could do it..
I met him on pof (plenty of fish) believe it or not lol.
