When my boyfriend was gone over the summer, we bought calling cards at Dairy-Mart for 10 dollars. They had 1000 "points" on them, and work great if you're going to talk for a long time. You get charged "points" for each call, but each point is also worth a minute. I must've called him 3 or 4 times and talked for a couple of hours. It was a great deal, IMO. I don't know about recharging options. This past summer, I used my dad's cell phone (unlimited night and weekend minutes)....I don't know if that would work overseas, but it worked great across the U.S.!

Anyway, after reading your second e-mail you continue to impress me as having your head on straight. I think it's smart not to rush into a marriage, and to not want a boyfriend to influence a major decision like a huge move. I'm moving away with my boyfriend next year and have struggled with the same issues myself....though in the end I've decided that the timing is right and it's only one state over.

One thing I can say from previous experience: I think it's perfectly natural not to want to date other guys at this point. You may feel that the whole two years (and thank God they cut it back a year...I TOTALLY can understand how good that would make you feel!!), and that's a surefire sign that he's the one for you. However, over time you may start to want to date again. That's what happened to me, and that's also perfectly natural. I think the odds of this happening are somewhat high, considering the number of long distance relationships that don't work out. You have to realize....long distance relationships don't necessarily end because of fights. A lot of time they fizzle out because you just don't KNOW the person anymore. That's the sad part but also the real part....this may happen, but that's the chance you have to take by not moving out with him. In any case, if that DOES happen, it will be a natural feeling in you...it won't hurt nearly as bad as it does to think about now. And who knows...maybe it will NEVER happen and after two years the time will be right for a wedding! I sure hope so :)

Keep us posted! When does he leave?
