I hear you! Sometimes it's easy to confuse (calendar) time with (actual) time together. A couple who sees each other one weekend per month will say they've dated for a "year" but in real time they've only been together 24 days! Some get engaged! :-)
Tru Dat Dashingscorpio. ;) Seriously though I think ya pretty much covered it all right there.
I was in one for 5 years until I finally moved in with him. I regretted it shortly after, he changed from sweet and nice to mean, possessive and abusive. It's so hard to really know someone you don't see on a regular basis.
It worked for me. After a year of taking turns flying back and forth from Orange County (California) to Chicago I moved to the Midwest after we got engaged. We lived together for 1 year. We've now been married for almost 5 years. LDRs are not easy!
That is actually super awesome that it worked for you. And even more awesome that you moved to Chicago, I want to move to Chicago almost as much as I want to move to Cleveland. (I named my daughter Addison after Addison St in Chicago - cubs fan!)
Now I know one person who it worked out for. Also, I love your name, dashingscorpio.
