Its a lot of hard work and dedication from both parties. As is any relationship but more so when your only means of contact is phone or computer.
I hope you recover quickly and keep looking for the right beau. Keep your head up.
I did think about flying out but the culture here is so different. My parents would probably have disowned me. It's not uncommon here. It's a very sweet story though :-)

And you will enjoy a life or trials and tribulations and will take them all on with zest as each day you awake with a kiss and an "I love you."
This made me shed a few happy tears. Thanks for sharing :-) it's just...now I feel so silly. I actually thought he could be the one and I was already making plans of what to do after I graduate. And then he said he doesn't need the hassle and I guess I was apparently just a hassle to him. I guess it was my fault in the end. Too clingy.
Thanks for listening to me, both of you :-)
