        You don't get over it Richie, you put it with the rest of your memories and keep bringing it out occasionally. Work hard for the next 12 months and do it all again, next time with a different girl.

        So that's where you've been to. Maybe you can move to that country big_smile.

        Edit: I assume that your new pic was taken in that country?

        She wasn't allowed in the taxi?

        The romantic in me wants to say go ahead and call her. But the practical side, well it's going to be costly if you try to maintain a long distance relationship. whatever you do, good luck.

      My theory has always been that for every day away from work (and being somewhere that's so much better) it takes one day to get used to being back in the old, less-than fun, routine.  One day away - you have to put in one "unmotivated" day before getting back into the swing.  Fourteen days away, fourteen days' worth of having to get used to being there again.   smile   Just my theory, of course, but I think a good part of June will involve a lot of time-wasting/unmotivating days for you.  (See?  This is why I so rarely ever take a vacation!!    lol)

        I just phoned my Thai girlfriend from the UK on my cell phone, think I got about 5 minutes for about £4 lol.. I just wanted to make sure she was OK..a long term is not an option really

      Kind of sad, I guess.  BUT, you could either quit the job you're never going to like again (now that you've had that great vacation and "etc."), and go start a new life with the girlfriend; or else just tell yourself she was going to turn mean and nasty once she got to know you better, and be glad you nipped that potentially disastrous relationship in the bud before those, and all kinds of other awful things began to ruin it.  lol

        The internet makes the world a much smaller place Rich, its been my experience that long distance relationships take a toll on anyone but teens with crushes.
        There are many trade offs you have to make in long distance relationships unless you have more money than you know what to do with. I used to know people who did, but for the most part now, the people I know are making it but don't have thousands to throw at anything.
        My advice is think, think and think again. If it's worth what your going to have to give up, go for it but not without thinking it totally though.

          Yeah I know its not realistic, but I think dreaming for a while helps to ease you back into reality lol

            You have to  remember, Richieb, that all recreational, holiday romances cannot be taken seriously. Too seriously. Just a friendly reminder. big_smile
