    We Met On Yahoo Chat

    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...

    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 am 27 years old and a Gamer. In October 2011 Battlefield 3 came out and I was so excited. I went and got it and was loving the game. Little did I know that I would meet my Mr Right. He of course lives in Norway and I live in the US (East Coast). I never would have thought that...

    I need some fellow LDR couples

    as friends. Distance is so hard and time management sucks. My girlfriend lives in England and I'm in California so we're 8 hours apart, she's ahead. We just never seem to have enough time together especially with work and school. Any advice?

    I get to see her again.

    Flying out in a few hours. Later today I will know what it is like to gaze into her eyes, know the warmth of her embrace, know the smell of her hair, the touch of her hand, the softness of her kiss. This will be the 4th time we have met since we started dating and I am as...

    I have a long-distance boyfriend.

    He lives in Florida, and I live down in California. Despite never meeting him, it was love at first sight. I am determined to meet him one soon day. I truly love him. And distance should never affect the love two people share. Remember that.

    Many say that LDR doesn't work

    because you don't have physical contact. I think it does work, if both people love each other or are committed to because it can be hard , but keep in mind that it won't be forever, and try for a meet up every once in awhile or Skype and that'll just do it. I'm in a LDR and it's...

    when he said yes. A boy, 152 miles away, saved me. Not in the way a knight in shining armor saves a princess from a Dragon, or a surgeon saves the victim of a car crash. But in a way that I thought was impossible. He silenced my demons and brought me to life, once more. Never...

    Just curious on average how many hours per day

    do you talk to your S.O.? Either on Skype/phone/etc. Also how many days in a week? For us, we'd Skype at least 2-3 hours each day and total of 4-5 days a week. But I hear some people Skype/talk on the phone at least 5-6 hours or more a day! Or even more! Plus, they'd fell...

    I Was In a Very Silly Long Distance Relationship!

    For starters, they aren’t

    as hard or as much as a struggle as they may seem. People make them more of a challenge than what they really are. People think distance “plays a factor” in a long distance relationship. It really isn’t a factor. It’s more of a test. An obstacle. A true long...

    that I met on vacation. We talk all the time now. It was pretty obvious during the time that we spoke in person that he likes me. I can also tell through the texts and phone calls I receive from him. I like him as well, but I'm not sure how to tell him. What should I do?

    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...
