Here's a question for all you folks. (For the record, I am in no way involved in this situation. Honest.)
Let's say you meet someone who really sweeps you off your feet: you have tons in common, you know how to make the other person feel great, and you really enjoy spending time together. But one of the people (either you or the other) is going to be leaving the country soon, and not returning for the forseeable future. And let's assume that one person moving to be with the other isn't a viable option.
The question is: would you have been better off if you'd never met that person in the first place?
(Again... I am not involved in this in any way.)
