Long Distance Friendship
Visitor's Question from a 21-30 year old Female
I had known a guy in the same university for a short while. We were in different faculties and didn't see each other a lot. It was in the UK and we are both Indians. We hardly knew each other much just a few talks sometimes.
I am back in India now and I keep on thinking about him and regret why I didn't try to date him. Anyway, I wrote him an e mail informing him i am back to my country and also asking him why he kept much distance ( I also kept it myself) and we couldnt get to know each other and we are from the same place. He answered me saying he still remembers me and that at that time he had a new job and was very busy and that he understands how I feel about this. He asked me what I am doing and what are my future plans.
I am interested to keep this going. What should I do to get closer to him and have his attention while we are very far from each other? He is still in the UK. Please help
Penpals have existed for hundreds of years! Think of all the famous couples who spent years and years writing letters back and forth, getting closer and closer all the time. You're very lucky to be able to communicate instantly and even send pictures! So in the grand scheme of things you're very well off.
I have lots of tips on long distance romance here -
just keep up the friendship and keep writing. You never know where it might lead!
