It's going somewhere...

My virtual relationship is going strong. We send text messages all day long, talk online using VoiP and webcam. It's nice. We exchange emails, share stories and music and even share favorite things over the net. And no, we've never done phone sex or cam sex. It seems too weird.

I really like him. He's young, he's vibrant - a little moody but that's about all. Most of the time we laugh, and we share jokes. We even fight. Yet, it still seems a bit strange. He is thousands and thousands of miles away from me. I have a trip planned next year to visit him and on the other hand, he is ready to move to the U.S. He has the credentials and the ability to come here. He is a nurse. We all know that there will be a shortage of nurses in the U.S. (if there isn't one already) as the baby boomers retire and age. Within the next 10 years and beyond, we will need health care workers in this country to take care of the aging.

I don't know. I still have that image in the back of my mind that we may not click once we see each other face-to-face. I have always found it to be different when you're far apart like this. We wonder in awe and excitement of how things can be. But do we really know? We don't. I guess that adds to the mystery and intrigue of online relationship.

I will tell you how it's going (and if it's still going) as we take the road to closeness and form somewhat of a tie between us. When I meet him in April, you will know exactly how I feel once I return. So keep watch.

In the interim, let me share one of the most gorgeous models around. Jake Campione. He's been featured by Abercrombie, Ralph Lauren and many other designers out there. I'm certain that you would agree that he's at the top of the ranks of our Male Beauties.

Is it the chest, the abs, or the obliques? You pick.

Fitness is a word being thrown around by so many so-called experts. These are common advices we've seen over and over again.

  1. If you eat four to five times a day, you will more likely have a higher metabolism than the ones who don't.
  2. Don't eat after 6:00 p.m.
  3. Always hydrate yourself. Drink eight glasses of water.
  4. Don't smoke.
  5. Do cardio at least three times a week.
  6. Blah Blah Blah.
I've been there... I've done that. It is never easy to get fit but I heard that whenever you workout, you really don't see the results until a week and a half has passed. There are many of us who quit before that because we don't see the results right away. If you stay with your regimen a little longer ( a few more days ), you would see the results and it will get you motivated.

I believe that the secret to getting back into shape is consistency. If you can be consistent for two weeks straight, you are more likely to achieve your goals when it comes to getting back into shape. There are so much information out there, it could make your head spin. If you stick with two-weeks and being consistent in your workout, you have a better chance of succeeding.

So, this week - promise yourself. Make one goal and achieve it. (i.e. 20 minutes on the treadmill, three times this week). Don't let anything get you off track. With that, the chest, the abs, or the obliques will follow. ;)

If you had the chance to fall in love with the "perfect man", does distance matter?

It's a situation many of us experience. More time spent at work than going out. We hardly meet people at social functions. It's a world where we find ourselves more tired than ever when we arrive home. What do we do? We go online. We join social networks like Facebook, MySpace, Friendster and so forth. We write blogs. Then, we meet people. People whom we've never met or we will never meet in person.

Simple messages turn into emails and instant messenger conversations. It turns to a phone call. Then we say, "Hmmm - I like what I hear!" And yet, the other person is thousands of miles away. Do you even invest in the time and money to have that relationship come to fruition? Do you continue to tell yourself, "He may be my soul mate."?

Oftentimes, we follow through. Then we find that long-distance relationships don't really work. Or does it? I've already been through this before. I don't think I can go through it again. What if... All the whatifs...

Hope everyone is having a great week!
