Thanks for your advice, greatly appreciated. The reason we drifted is he explained that when he comes home the end of the week there isn't anyone there and he misses me even more and not being around each other creates stress for him. I respect his work schedule and always at peace with being apart from him periodically. My question is should I give this relationship another go and take it from there?.....which is what you have helped me to see that this is a part of life and maybe being apart was what we really needed to determine if our future together. Thanks a million and I will keep you posted as we progress. All the best life has to offer.
