New Entries to Help with Peace Corps Long Distance Relationships

Have really appreciated all your comments about how reading this blog has helped you!  Has meant a lot to me, that people are even reading this blog, and that secondly, my own experiences are helping others.

Since my boyfriend is now back, I’ve kind of been torn about what to do with this blog.  I originally thought that maybe I would use it to talk about the re-adjustment period, but honestly it has been going great.  So that may be a separate post.  Additionally, though, I was thinking of just kind of opening up the blog for your questions, and I can give you bits of advice based on what I have found.

So if you leave a comment, I will answer you back in blog form.  Hoping that is helpful, and a good place for everyone to share their own experiences!  There are already a couple comments in the pipeline that I will be responding to shortly.

Thanks again for your comments, they mean a lot to me. :)

    I just read your entries and they were so so encouraging. I am going into the Peace Corps in September, which is still about 6 months away but have been having anxiety about how me and my boyfriend will handle the distance, especially him. We have great communication and talk about me leaving quite a bit and what we expect. He fully supports my decision to go and is completely confident in us, but I still want to be fully prepared for what awaits. So I just want to extend a huge thank you for creating this blog. It was so encouraging and really helped me have a more positive outlook. I will definitely be showing my boyfriend it. I truly wish you and your boyfriend the best of luck and happiness in the future.

    I just want you to know I’ve been referring to your entries since my boyfriend left for the Peace Corps in February of this year. We’ve made it this far, and I’m going to see him in less than two weeks! Our communication has been great, and we’ve really put one another first. That said, I finally cracked this week. It was the first time I felt that our relationship might be on rocky ground and the future seems more uncertain, though we plan on moving in together afterward. I think a lot of it is my guilt that I may be holding him back from really experiencing Peace Corps. Anyway, I guess I’m asking advice on how to prepare for the first trip to see him (it’s for 8 weeks!). I think the reason I cracked is mostly because of nerves… but nevertheless, he agreed.
