My boyfriend and I started off together, then he moved to PA. But then he showed up in MA to help me unpack and move there: 250 miles.
Then he made the trip from PA to VT, to help me moved there: 400 miles
Then seeing each other roughly 1x a month, VT to MA: 400 x 4 – 1,600 miles
Then he moved to Florida, I’m in VT which is 1,300 miles – I flew twice. 2x 2,600 = 5,200
I moved to NY, he’s in FL for 1 year and 8 months. A distance of roughly 1,000 miles. We visited generally around the New Years, the Spring, Fourth of July, and Thanksgiving.
1,000 (per leg) x 2 = 2,000 (per trip) x 4 (trips per year) x 2 (years, roughly) = 16,000 miles
Then he moved back to NY, to be close to me permanently – 1,000 miles.
So we are at 1,600 + 5,200 + 16,000 + 1,000 = 23,800 miles after 3 years.
Now we’re engaged. Hopefully we stay at 23,800.
