—The Bishop’s Man // Linden MacIntyre
I said bye to her this morning and I already miss her more than I thought I would. She’s so strong, smart and ambitious, she’s going to do an amazing job there. We’ve been dating for 3 years with a 5 hour distance between us pretty much the whole time. But this feeling is really different.
The most simple sign for me is not having that person to send texts to everyday. I now have to sit down and email her. I have to collect my thoughts and send them, I can’t just chat.
I love chatting. I love a back and forth conversation.
Especially with her.
These next few months will be strange and tough but it’s all worth it. See, I’m meeting her in Kenya, where we’ll travel for just over a week before she moves to Toronto.
We’ll travel for a week and then she’ll move here where we’ll finally be in the same city after 3 years.
I am, in fact, in the last leg of this long distance experiment we worked really hard at.
