I think it’s totally fine either to go with your plan or just move in with each other. There’s no end in sight to this so you’ll need to figure out seeing each other at some point.

Agree 💯

Currently doing the opposite- my bf and I share a studio apartment and don’t want to break up because we know our issues are stemming from living on top of each other for 2 months. We shared this apartment for over a year before COVID and had no issues before. He’s going to his sisters empty apartment ~4 hours driving away from here. I’m at the point where I’m like fuck it. Do what you need to do and do it safely and quickly.

Each other (btw I live in Rhode Island) . I’m sure many of you all are in the same boat with your SO’s , and for the time being we are all staying put. I wanted to propose an idea and see if it’s crazy- what if my boyfriend and I both drove halfway to meet each other- and stayed in a hotel / Airbnb for some time? This way we could both avoid air travel- we would social distance with each other in this place , and then return to our homes if and only we are showing no symptoms? Perhaps we could stay out for 14 days. If this sounds ridiculous, And certainly in all violations of social distancing please feel free to express so! Maybe I’m feeling a little extra down due to the situation and in no way do I want to add to any issues or endanger anyone’s health. If it means staying put indefinitely then so be it, but curious to hear what people think, and how long distance couples are coping

People will definitely judge but I am doing the exact same thing. Driving and meeting in the middle at an Airbnb for 2 weeks - we have both been strict quarantining and won’t even go outside for the 10 days prior. I’ve got comfortable that this is OK.

I’m doing the same thing.

Do the driving, just very comfortable about the staying at an airbnb or hotel at this point

*not very comfortable

Instead of both of you exposing yourselves and then staying at an airbnb, can one of you travel and stay with the other for 2 weeks? Or move in together at this point! If not then your plan isn’t bad. I was in the same boat and started getting major separation anxiety so I moved in with my SO and his parents.

I just feel like mental health is so important and I cant imagine not seeing my SO for so this long

Its hard to be positive nowadays in any work. When I joined IT industry i thought in IT we will not have politics and shit but its there. Ppl dont want to work together. They just want to keep their power. They achieve something and they wanna keep it anyhow. Its really sad. You wanna work with your open heart but ppl above you wont let it because in the end their position will be in danger. Why would be in danger? You know stuff, you have knowledge, you can grow more and more. Right??
