Where Do You Go To My Lovely?

I’ve always believed it doesn’t work... even when I saw one myself, hoped for it to work, realised only too late that that hope was misplaced...I still believed all along that there was little chance of a light at the end of the tunnel. The odds against, seem insurmountable.

And now, I find myself at the beginning of yet another long distance relationship and I’m again hoping it works. Its not really a relationship yet, but its got such great potential to be one, if you know what I mean.

This time though, for some reason, it seems different. Not easier, just different in a good way.

They always do, says the devil’s advocate. I smirk saying, but you’re supposed to say that, thats your role, so I’m not listening.
I have a nasty feeling he’s smirking back at me behind my back.

Ah advocates!

Nice, happy for you right now. But be prepared for awful times - been there, done that, bought and sold the T-shirt. Still, better to find out for yourself I say. Maybe you will be the one exception the rule makers have been searching for.

I really wish I could be a bit more positive here, but a lot of us have just dealt with too much of the crap-end of long distance. I do always recommend it for the experience, there's always that chance.

Sometimes it makes sense to listen to the god's advocate.
If it works, you win big time, if it doesnt you have one more experience and the memories.

Easy Peasy Japanesy...or maybe not!

@all: so negative you guys :). I was that way too...but why its different this time is because over time I've realised.. that most have been through long distance and in your face relationships. Both fail at some point or the

Just saying :)

Good luck with your quest...

If it doesn't work out (and it might not), don't lose heart..
Learning from one's mistakes will seem like a good idea at that point of time.. Especially when you realize that won't need to search far and wide, and discover plenty of fish in the sea you're in..

Ah, think of the phone bills.. The time lag.. The accents..
It almost makes me lazy enough to get out of a long distance relationship..
But hey! That's just me.. The sensible kind.. :)

You mean lazy enough to get into a LD reln...right??

hehe..the phone bills are looking bigger already man. Why doesn't skype work at home @$#@%.

Love the song from the title..maybe the reason why this post caught my eye!

Again, my 2 cents..better to take a chance and risk losing rather than sit n wonder what if?!

Also, coz there are but 2 options, even probability says its a 50% win! :)

Good luck!

Yes, it did end. But another's taken its place.

It's a much better place now.

Still the fucked up hopeful optimistic.
