“Dear Nerdie, A girl on IRC i have known for a while has made her intentions clear that she wishes us to be a couple. I'm conserned about the long distance thing, but I really like her. What should I do? ”
Dear Long Distance Larry. You need to ask yourself how you really feel about this girl. Is she worth the difficulty of a long distance relationship? They can be very hard and wear on you, but are you willing to go the distance for this girl? Can you see it working out? Is it worth it even if it doesn't work out? If you really care for this girl, you have nothing left to lose. It could be the best relationship you ever had. She could be “the one.” Is it worth it to you, to find out?
