As far as I can tell, long distance relationships only work if you've got something really good to look forward to.
I could tell you that bickering this early on probably isn't a good sign, but you wouldn't listen anyway. So I'm going to play counterpoint to these guys and tell you that sometimes the couples that fight the most are the most passionate . . . or is that just in the movies?
Either way, I like your attitude. Have fun. Coming from someone who crossed the Atlantic on an almost monthly stretch for a year, 30 mins is cake.
