Not sure how it took 80 plus Loving BDSM podcast episodes for me to look at John Brownstone and say, "Ya know, we should talk about long distance relationships." It should have been obvious - we made one work for us and survived the hard times. Hell, we moved in together and are engaged to be married (October 28, 2017, in case you wondered). So yeah, this episode is a little overdue.
We didn't mean to make episode 83 a two-part show. We genuinely thought we could talk about long distance relationships in about an hour. Cue hysterical laughter. The first part focused on meeting someone and figuring out if there was something there to build a relationship with - good info for kinky or vanilla, long distance or in person. This week (episode 84), though, we finally answer the question - now what? You've found your partner. You think it can work. Now what do you do? Well, after 18 months in our own long distance relationship before moving in together, we've got a few ideas..
