Welcome to Mystic Sisterhood.
Great having you join us.
Sorry to hear of all you have been through.
My main and immediate impression is that this relationship could go two ways. I do see a delay in you meeting one another, and it doesn't seem to be caused by you but by your partner ~
I do feel they are interested, that they love you, but I feel patience is needed here, and I mean this can
work, you will both need to be patient if you are both willing for it to continue , I feel something must change though, although you two meeting is something I feel positive about i'm not sure from there where it will go. For one, I don't see, but secondly I feel you both have to make some sort of alternate arrangement, such as one of you moving closer to the other, for this to work how you both would like it to.
I feel you are both wanting to be closer, is that right? because I also feel both of you are hesitant or one of you is hesitant and the other is financially struggling and not able to. My main answer is yes, this is worth fighting for, if you want to make it work, it'll definitely work, on the other hand, never feel guilt for considering your own needs. Life is short after all. But love is love, and it's worth working and waiting for, the effort will pay off, just consider alternative arrangements,
Hope this helps you out a bit
PS....If you had more specific questions let me know and i'll get back to you as soon as I can
