    my brother is. He has been for the past 9 years. She lives in California and when they started he was in New Brunswick. He now lives in Vancouver to be closer. If you are losing hope with your relationship I want to tell you this. They are getting married in August. They still...

    Every single day passes by me.

    I don't think that someone has ever had the effect on me. It like she's my fearless addiction. I feel her at the end of my fingertips. She is right there. My my thoughts and feelings hit me like a train racing through the wind and it's all so clear to me. She's everything I've...

    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...

    Awkwardly enough, we met on omegle.

    Back in November, I was home alone and bored- just looking for someone to chat with. I went on omegle, in the beginning it was quite the let down. All I saw was penises, and no one wanted to chat without seeing my boobs first. I knew this was how it was going to be, but I had...

    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...

    Some of you know this, some of you don't. I'll start at the beginning though, just because I think I need to.We met on EP. I was in a pissy mood, he was being a smart-*** and he made me giggle. We talked, and stalked, and talked some more. I found that I was thinking about him...

    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...

    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.

    Long distance tests your bond of love

    for one another, as well as patience. There will always be that feeling of insecurity, worry and haste towards one another but that's what makes the love so strong in the relationship. You love each other to the point where you'd do anything to keep it from fading. I love my bf...
