Beautiful article. In one month, I'm leaving to go on my year abroad and my partner is going to work at sea - we won't see each other for a year (except for some two weeks in the middle), and after that, he will always go work at sea for about 6 months each year until we're ready to settle and have children... I've never been in a long distance relationship before.
There's no doubt in my mind we can make it, but it's going to be challenging since physical touch is also my main love language. This article reassured me, though. Thank you!
