Several years ago, I met up with a friend from college for a long weekend and we were intimate. I didn't think she really had feelings for me, I thought it was more of a fling. She lived in Michigan and I live in Maryland. Turned out, she did have feelings for me and was willing to try a long-distance relationship.
At the time, I was dating in Marlyand, no on exclusively, but had been out with one woman a few times and I wanted to meet her face to face to break up. Michigan friend didn't really believe me and decided she didn't want to date.
Fast forward three years, I've never found anyone else, nor did I completely give up on her, always held out hope she might change her mind. We met up again Thanksgiving weekend and feelings came back strong. She just came to visit me in Maryland for NYE and we had a great time.
It was a crazy weekend, but I really believe I am in love. It's been a LONG time since I felt this way. Any relationship for us survivors of infidelity is hard, this is harder, due to the distance. I'm torn between rushing forward and trying to take things slow and trying to be safe. I'm excited. I feel like I waited forever for this girl. Of course, she said she was into me when we were in college, so she has no pity for me.
