    We met while he was going to college in my city.

    He recently finished up his year and he decided to change schools because he was having a hard time. I'll also be going away for school in the fall so we will hardly be able to see each other. It's been a few months apart and we've only seen each other once and it's pretty hard...

    they say distance binds 2 hearts

    but i think there are more downsides to it... it ideally should bring them closer but from a practical stand point i still am trying to understand the mechanism.. God help me.

    415 Miles

    This number goes through my brain constantly....  415 miles.  That's how far away my girlfriend is from me.  Oddly enough, we lived REALLY close to each other for a good portion of our lives.  With the same interests, we probably even bumped into each other here or there...

    strong ladies who have children deal with the distance and how you adapt to being a single mom for whatever length your husband is away??

    I am dating the love of my life.

    She has helped me learn to stand on my own two feet and realize a can walk alone, and it's not a bad thing to hold someone's hand as you walk. She has helped me after two years, finally get over the crippling grief I faced. And she helped learn what love is, selfless, and...

    I Was In a Very Silly Long Distance Relationship!

    Last year, I was involved in a very silly long distance relationship. Now normally, "silly" is the last word you would (and should) use to describe a long distance relationship. This is because such a relationship usually shows the devotion of two people to each other and their...

    across someone and they can become one of,if not the, most important people/person in your life? I always swore up down, until i was blue in the face, that i would never be in a long distance relationship, that they were never with it. Crazy to think that was only a little over...

    There is no long distance in LOVE.

    It always finds a way to bring two hearts together, no matter how many miles are between them.

    And he called me tonight.

    I'm SO in love. Ahh!!! I'm just playing cool, and I'm not chasing him. That's working real well. It feels SO good to hear him though. Especially when he tells me he loves me, and that everything is going to be awesome when I get there. Ahhhhh! I love you!!

    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.

    There is no denying that loving someone without

    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...
