    I have a sad, but quite long story to tell all

    of you. It is not my story to tell- rather my friends story, but I just want to see what you all think. I will not use her actual name or the boys actual name, so just be aware that these names are false. My friend's name is Olivia. She is my roommate in our dorm. I love her...

    I miss my boyfriend so much right now.

    I get to have a facebook chat with him everyday atleast 1 message. When I'm very very lucky we get enough time before one of us has to sleep to talk on skype. When he has to go to sleep since his hours are far ahead of mine. I feel like I'm alright, I go take a shower, eat...

    Being apart from the person,

    you love has to be one of the most challenging experiences in a persons life. Every day that you are apart. Can't help but be reflected on as precious moments, funny moments, useful moments ..lost! Of course there is another reality which.. Time apart somehow re affirms...

    Im in an LDR and sometimes,

    i feel like i want and maybe even need much more than this relationship can give me. Sometimes, it's just not enough to be greeted by a text message. I want a hug. I want a kiss. I want actual dates. I want him to talk to me, to look into my eyes. He's the best thing in my...

    I've been in a LDR for over 3 years now,

    and it's going strong. I met her on a blogging website by accident and we starting talking out of boredom. After a days I couldn't get her off my mind. I remember seeing the private message pop up and feeling so happy and excited to talk to her. We eventually started talking on...

    The one I'm seeing isn't able to call me

    because his last phone broke before we met and now the plans of him coming are possibly not happening until next year because he needs to help his mother out. and I don't know if I'm okay with the excuses. I mean I don't think his a liar but quiet honestly I'm feeling a bit...

    This past week I have learned

    that you have to be okay with being alone. Don't be afraid to go out to eat alone. Or go to the pool alone. Being alone is okay sometimes. Treat yourself! You shouldn't be upset about it!

    There is no denying that loving someone without

    being able to touch is intense and can be deeply frustrating. The body seems to be always aroused without being able to make full release. The heart is constantly craving. The mind is...put under tremendous stress to reconciliate the passion and frustration. This sometimes makes...

    Yesterday was our first anniversary,

    so what did I get in the mail? his shirt and a handwritten letter. I read the letter in front of him and, embarrassingly started tearing up. I have never felt so loved in my life. I cannot wait to have many more anniversaries with him.

    I did it for 8 years. We met at 16. We are 24 now. If it is meant to be it will work out. It will be hard, you will both screw up, make mistakes, yell and scream, cry... but if you can learn to forgive, to trust, to communicate... to appreciate your time together... to see the...

    I Was In a Very Silly Long Distance Relationship!

    Being in a long distance relationship is easy,

    and really nurtures a strong emotional and intellectual bond. You really get to know someone, and if you can just talk to them for hours on end most of the year, your relationship when you're finally both together is pretty much unbreakable. In my opinion, it only becomes...
