We love getting reader updates from you guys, and today's letter is no exception. Way back in June of 2004, Bubby received a letter from a woman known as half-a-world-away, who had previously followed Bubby's love advice on how to find the right kind of man. She did indeed, but was about to jet off to China for a 5-week experience abroad. She was wondering if she should keep the sparks alive with this young man, or bid him adieu at the tar mat. Bubby replied, "When I was in college, I had a boyfriend and we were many miles apart but that did not matter. The feeling was mutual and after three years we were married. It was very successful. "
So, did half-a-world-away and her beau manage to keep-it-together?
A year ago you gave me advice about how to handle distance in a relationship. At the time, I was about to leave for China for five weeks. I didn't know whether to try to stay in contact with my boyfriend as much as possible, or whether to temporarily cut the ties, and fully immerse myself in the culture. Well, I followed your advice, and one year later, my boyfriend and I are still together and very happy. In fact, I'm back in China ... and he'll be joining me here in two weeks! We both love your column.
