What's the prognosis for getting together with the one you love? This is why distance relationships suck Confused

The prognosis is that neither one of us is rich, so getting to a point where we can get together and *stay* together takes time. I don't want to go into any more details than that. And I sure don't want to give a timeline or an estimated date for us to be together because I'll jinx it doing that.

And yes the distance sucks but I would much rather be dating a great guy who currently lives all the way out on the East Coast than waste any time on any of the fucktards that Texas offers. >.>

This is 'The Ranting Corner' and the whole purpose for the thread. There are a bazillion posts here so no, you needn't keep your mouth shut.

Get it out. That's what this thread is for.

RE: Ranting corner
My thing about always telling oneself that things could be worse is that it seems to me a way to keep oneself stuck in a bad situation. I stayed with my ex-husband for too long thinking things just like that. I thought "Well, it could be worse. He could be beating me." so then I'd think I was doing okay in the situation I was in when I could have been in a better situation and deserved a better situation.

Sorry things are tough. Longing...sucks.

Focus on *how* things are *going* to be better - remind yourself of the steps you're taking to make it happen. And remind yourself of happy things right here in the present. It's how I've pulled through my own personal hell. You won't be in the valley for always. Heart

RE: Ranting corner
Well, I think I'm pretty much packed. Got my clothes picked out for the flight, got my purse junk transferred, oh and all the spare change at the bottom of my bag fillled up my tip jar.

I've got to decide if I'm going to bring a light weight sweater that I will not wear except on the plane. Sometimes I get chilly. Blush


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
