From the title, I'm sure you can tell I want to hook up with a girl who lives in another state. I met this girl a few times when I was studying abroad in high school, and always had a thing for her. Unfortunately, she had a boyfriend at the time and I was pretty awful with girls back then, so sh1t didn't happen.
Flash forward 5 years. We're both studying abroad right now, but in each other's countries (Me in Korea, her in America). I'm coming back home next month, and she leaves for Korea 2 weeks after. We've kept in touch, just every so often exchanging messages to check up on each other, etc. I have a short-term girlfriend right now, but won't be with her once I get back home. Not sure what her status is, since there's nothing on her facebook to indicate one way or the other. But she's an attractive girl, so I'm sure she's having a good time.
Anyway, to the point: my home state is about 800 or so miles away from where she goes to school. I was thinking about coming up to visit her the weekend before she leaves, since I have a friend who lives in her state that I would like to visit as well.
What would be a good way of letting her know I'd like to come visit her without her thinking I solely want to fark? I'd be fine if we didn't, to be completely honest. I haven't seen her face to face in years, and I am genuinely interested in catching up. She's a pretty cool girl, and we could be still great friends, no problem. But I have a feeling she would be an incredible lay as well.
More important than anything is that I don't come off looking desperate/creepy for visiting her, because I am neither of those things. But this is a pretty sensitive situation, and I'm not sure if it's even possible to pull off, if for no other reason than the logistics being so heavily against me.
Some additional background: I have a pretty cute girlfriend, and all of my exes are definitely good-looking as well, so I do have some pre-selection working for me. I can speak her language pretty well, too, so the language barrier won't be an issue. I've also been gaming her lightly recently, and increasing the frequency of our conversations to about twice a week instead of once every month or so, trying to build rapport.
Any advice is appreciated.
