Oh girl, dont I know it.

I just boight a 1000 ticket to Scotland maybe a month ago, and now im unable to go or ill lose my job. So I opted to cancel my ticket and have him come here instead. I bought ticket insurace, after all, with 100% money back. Easy right? Nope. I can only cancel my ticket if I actually get fired from my job (through no fault of my own. ha) a terrorist attack on his country, or if i get severely ill to where I cant travel. All of this must be documented or I must kiss that money goodbye. Well i was desperate and desperation makes people do crazy things. So I bought his 1000 ticket here on a credit card with an interest rate that would make your head spin. All in the name of love I suppose.

Im headed for sure financial ruin and the entire ordeal is making my eye twitch. Im filing for his K1 visa ASAP because this back and forth will be our downfall.

Where are you trying to fly to/from? Can you fly on short notice?

@xSparr0w:  Yikes! Hope somehow you’re able to get your money back. That sucks.  Just curious, he didn’t help you pay half, $500 each?

@ERsax:  I understand where you’re coming from. Traveling can be so costly! The Summer is almost here if you think about it; June is right around the corner. That is when I next see my hun also. Long distance is not easy. Maybe you can borrow $200 from a family member. Hope everything works out well for you 2.

I understand, hon. Fiance and I were LD for 18 months 2 years ago. I lived in Korea and he lived in Hawaii (EXPENSIVE FLIGHTS). Then I lived in MD and he lived in Hawaii (EXPENSIVE FLIGHTS). Now he is in Texas and I’m in MD still (only somewhat expensive). Luckily, we love to travel so it’s not too bad for us. Plane ticket prices are really expensive. Do you see each other every 2 months? That’s pretty frequent. Maybe you could try seeing each other less. SKYPE!!! or Oovoo. Oovoo is better I think. That’s how we’ve gotten thru our 21 months/4 years LDRs.
