    I'm in a long distance relationship

    and it gets so hard on nights like this when I'm alone and she's not around to comfort me. I love her so much though. We'll meet one day!

    Please, Come Home!

    My life is a mess. I need you most at times like these. I'm stressed, full of anger, I feel worthless. I need you to hold me in your arms and tell me everything is going to be okay. Lend me your shoulder to cry on. Help me through this difficult time. My old escape doesn't seem...

    I met (let's call him T) T two years ago.

    In April of this year, I had the opportunity to go visit him in Japan and really hit it off with him. We ended up liking each other and started dating. Deep in my mind, I knew that it was going to be difficult. He lives in Japan and I live in America. We both want to make it...

    for over year we have known each other. He wasn't that short like I thought he was and he was way more handsome then he's pictures. He's smile, laugh, the way he smelt, and even his cute eyes were all so perfect. We drove around and visited his family and friends. We also ate...

    You Have to Sacrifice For the Things That You Love.

    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...

    ''long distance'' means different things to

    different people. It's not like we are on different continents or in different countries or anything, but we live forty miles apart, and that to me, is long distance! We see each other as often as we can, but its not always easy with financial issues, we both have kids to take...

    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...
