Wow, Piers and I are quite overwhelmed by the number of well wishes that have come to us through my blog comments as well as through Twitter, Facebook and Plurk!
Wanna thank everyone for your support and well wishes! We didn’t imagine that people would be so very encouraging, so we really appreciate it very much!
Piers is really happy. He says I’ve got such nice readers (heheh) and he feels touched by the unexpected reaction.
Well, me too! I think I have nice readers too! =D
Some of you are nuts, though.
We’ve only just started dating and already people talking about marriage and babies.

Anyway, long distance relationships are easier to handle these days. I was in one long ago when there was only e-mail and IRC.
Now, we have webcam and mobile Gtalk/MSN, so we can stay connected and see each other practically all the time. Except during each other’s sleeping hours since we’re seven hours apart. (Not so bad.)
And we’ll have Facetime once Piers gets his iPad 2! =D
After I got mine, he decided he wanted one (cos I tempted him by showing him Real Racing 2, lol) so we went back to the store but there was never any stocks left.
We kept going back there and calling them up for a whole week until he finally gave up and just ordered online. He’ll only get it in May, so we have quite a wait.
Time drags when you’re in an LDR.
Even with instant communication and virtual meetings, it’s still tough.
I keep wondering what it is about people that makes them need actual physical proximity.
Even with friends, you want to go out and meet them physically. Even if, when you meet, all you do is sit in a cafe and chat.
But it’s just chat! You can do that online at home, like you sometimes have group MSN conferences with friends during slow days at work. Or you chat on voice comms when you’re playing an online game together.
And yet people still yearn to meet up in person after all that interaction online.
So what more lovers?
Wonder what kind of chemical or wiring in us induces that kind of crazy need.
I met up with Piers for lunch once on a work day. It was nice being able to see him in the day and not have to wait till he knocked off from work.
Took the bus to his office (about 20 minutes’ ride) and had a leisurely meal at a nearby cafe.
I met his colleagues briefly and I think they teased him about us afterwards. Haha. I think they read my blog. (Hi Steve, David, Charles and James!)
Piers has gotten a lot more teasings than I have about our relationship. Like from his colleagues, friends and family. Maybe because he appears on my blog so much.
Quite a hazard being my boyfriend.
Lucky he’s nice enough to put up with it! =D
We’re planning to see each other again next month. Really can’t wait any longer! Not sure who’s going to whom cos my schedule isn’t firm yet.
But, yeah, LDRs are tough.
I think he will really kill me for that picture! =P
