I finally caught up with Rob yesterday morning. It was like being high. All I wanted to do was give him a huge hug.

I didn't get to see him. We just chatted on MSN, but he caught my post about "thinking of you" because he had texted it to me the other day. So he sent me a message on MSN (which I didn't get) saying that he was thinking about me in general, which made me smile to no end. We talked about all sorts of stuff. About how he was back on "justchat" and met an american girl who's "cute" as he put it. I would usually get jealous about this, but it didn't in the least bit phase me this time. Not sure why, maybe I was just too happy to hear from him. We spoke about my imminent trip to Asia this winter (a whole 2 months away from home!!). And we spoke a bit about how my bf is behaving around the organization of the trip.

On a side note. My Bf is not behaving badly at all. But he has put me in a slightly difficult situation. I will be seeing my father in Asia this winter, I have not seen him for 6 years or so. My sister was here recently so I have seen her a few times in the past 2 years (which is unusual) but she lives in Asia as well, in a place that we will be getting VERY close to. She works in a resort and offered us to stay there for less than half the price of what it would generally cost. It is a paradise, truly, honestly one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen as a resort. And Bf isn't sure that we can make it there due to time and money. Now I don't want to be selfish, I don't want to monopolize the trip and just do what I want. But seeing as she is my family and we are getting so close to her (less than an hour's flight) I think we should make the effort to go.

So after a discussion about all of that Rob made a prediction. He said that we would break up by the end of the trip or get married. Not sure what to make of it. I didn't blink an eye. It didn't phase me. I'm not sure if that's a bad thing or a good thing. In any case we'll see how things go.

Long trips with competing agendas can be a challenge. But don't let Rob put deadlines in your head. If the trip is a make-or-break situation, your BF needs to know up front. In my opinion, anyone as pretty as you should as much time as possible on clothing-optional beaches at beautiful resorts being pampered by a cabana boy named Swen.

If the trip is just a trip, and not an audition, then have fun, go see your sister, ditch him for a few days if you need to, and come back with lots of pictures.

I just hope you find time for your loyal readers and friends while you are gone, but I'm not getting my hopes up.

To be fair, I've sometimes had to be the practical one in the relationship when it comes to some of Wife's big ideas. She wants to do this and this, and go here and there, and get such a such a thing done to the house. . . And in the meantime I look at the bank balance, at our income, and at some point I have to reign her in and point out the practicality of her suggestion.

Now I don't know if BF is being practical and reasonable, or is dragging his feet for other reasons entirely, but on this it's fair to say there are two sides to the story.

Never-the-less, whatever you do, what you ought to do above everything else is make the most of it and enjoy it as much as you can.
