I Am In a Long Distance Relationship

    Me and my boyfriend have been dating

    for almost a year now and we plan on meeting this summer. It's been a great year being with him but it's also been hard. I think one of the hardest things is just seeing people around me holding hands and kissing sometimes. I wish I could do that with the person I love everyday...

    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'm in love with an unaffectionate,

    workaholic realist. Romance is non existent. He doesn't understand the need for communication. Sometime we go weeks without talking , He is the completely opposite of me. But I love him💔

    Isnt it crazy? How you can accidentally stumble

    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...

    So, yes, I am in a long distance relationship.

    Never thought that’s gonna be my story, but here we are. It’s been going on for 8 months, and it sucks. No, let’s get it straight, the guy is great, our love is as strong as ever and all that sappy crap, but… there are several things that **** me off on daily basis. 1) 7...

    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...

    I've packed up about a third of my room now. I'm a hoarder naturally, so chucking out stuff I've had for ten+ years is hard to say the least. But it'll be worth it :3 He's started doubting, as you do when things become close. 'What if you want to leave when you get here...

    I'm 17 from the UK, she's 15 from the USA,

    as things go we've been lucky. We get to Skype every single day, and have skyped every single day since we started dating (Christmas Day, 01:12 am, 2013 - Happiest day of my life). She dragged me out of a deep and dark place, I was depressed, and on the verge of self harm. One...

    And we got into a huge fight right

    before we parted ways yesterday. We won't see each other for another two weeks. We've already talked about it and made up, but it's going to be tough to recover if we can't even see each other. Has anyone else been in this situation?

    Being apart from the person,

    No Longer

    I am no longer in a long distance relationship. I no longer fall asleep on the phone. I no longer send a text as soon as I wake up. I no longer talk about how much I wish I could hold her. I no longer fantasize about being with her everyday. I no longer wait for months to...

    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...
