<b>Anything else? Luba and I know each other since 2002. We tried to be friends as we both were afraid of long distance relationships and believed in community stereotypes about them. But in 2005 I went to Africa due to my work in HIV-service international NGO and I could't think there about anybody but Luba, she was writing me and supported me very much. When I came back in 2006 we finally decided to live together. We both do believe that people can manage long distance relationships and their stability depends on mutual wish to keep such relationships, appreciate and develop them. These relationships convinced me that LDR and other relationships exist until people are satisfied with them. Luba and I plan to live together later when we will be able to  devote more time to each other slowing our career developments and buy a flat/house together.
