E-mail your Passover questions to Bubby this week...
I'm a 25 year old UK guy working in a job I love. My girlfriend is a PhD student. We live at opposite ends of the country because of our different commitments and only see each other about every second weekend. We have plans to move in together. This will mean me giving up my job but only when I have found a new one near my girl.
I've just been posted to the US for five weeks with work. I had hoped that my girlfriend would come out and visit for a long weekend but she has decided against this. She feels the travel and the jet lag aren't worth the effort. I feel sad about this as it will be tough for me not see her for so long. Should I be worried about her commitment to the relationship?
Your problem is about the same as mine was. Although it was not across the country or acrose the ocean, it was far enough that my boyfriend and I could not see each other often. But we did manage twice a month. He came to me once and I went to him once. And sometimes something came up and we didn't see one another for longer periods. But we did write and did call and remained true. This went on for about 3 years and then we got married. I left my job although I liked it very much. His seemed to be the more promising one and that was how we made our decisions. Never regretted it for a minute.
Hope this helps.
