I’m in a bos/nyc LDR with my bf of 1.5 years. Covid has made things difficult as he’s extremely cautious about travel and is much more ok with virtual hangouts than I am. He’s also thriving during quarantine with new hobbies/free time while I’ve been struggling missing him and feeling like a downer. We both have flexible WFH jobs, but feel it’s too soon to move-in together. I’m really struggling with toughing it out given there’s no end in sight. Any tips for finding clarity?

Looking for a change of pace (currently in Boston) and am considering trying out Denver. I’d love anyone’s input on relative pros and cons (gay community, food scene, city culture, what the people are like, etc)! For context: I’m a gay male in my mid 20s. Bos has been nice and all but I’m tired of how expensive it is and want to try something new.

I’m traveling to Maine from Georgia in a couple of weeks and will be flying into Boston and renting a car. I am reading about Mass. Covid travel rules and I am wondering if I would qualify as a transitory traveler since I’m just passing through. The website only talks about people that are driving through so I was wondering if anyone has done something similar recently. Also, if anyone has flown into BOS recently, how did they check to see if you exempt from the Covid rules?
