    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!!

    7000 Miles Away From Happiness, My Japanese Princess.

    It all started with a friend request over facebook, i added her and from that very moment i was attracted to her which i didn't act on as i had felt it before but this time it was different. For the first few months we didn't really talk so much just a few comments to each other...

    Cravings

    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...

    Message To All Those In Long Distance....

    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...

    The distance is really starting to get to me.

    I feel frustrated when I see other couples together or if I watch a movie and see a couple all snuggled up...but I really do care for him, when I see him on skype I can't help but smile and even when I see him in person it makes the waiting so worth it....i just wish I could see...

    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...

    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...

    The weekends are the worst.

    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...

    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...
