After many delays, due to our respective workloads at the end of the academic year, the girl and I were finally able to go on our second date. On Sunday afternoon we headed off to a general purpose farm/recreational area two towns away, played a spirited round of minigolf (I clinched a two stroke win on the last hole), and ate handmade ice cream while we talked on the patio. It went great; a good time was had by all.Northampton, MA, anyone? On the former, I think the regularity of the contact is what matters most. Just keep making time for each other.
Today, after we were both done with finals, we met for coffee and - after some smalltalk - had a State of the Relationship conversation where we sort of fessed up to liking each other and tried to sort out how it's going to work over the summer. She's headed back to Poughkeepsie, NY tomorrow, and I'm likely to spend the next few months bouncing between my family's home in Southern New Hampshire and my apartment in Worcester, MA. I'm going to try to get out there every few weeks, and we're trying to sort out some good places to meet in between or go together when we actually see each other.
So, my questions for the commentariat are twofold: A.) How do you make the long distance thing work, especially when you're just starting out? and B.) Do you have any suggestion for places we can meet in between or go to when we're together? I've got some limited ideas for A (unlimited texting plan, Skype, etc.) and she's already suggested previously that she'd like to see Niagara Falls and Montreal, so that seems like it'd work for a bigger trip but I also need some time/money intensive options.
