    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...

    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.

    I am, but I swear with everything in me

    that I will not give up on him, no matter how hard it is. And I'll find a way to get him here again, and I won't rely on dad or my step-mom, since they don't like him anymore. I'll get him here and he'll be all mine. I'll make him happy and I'll show him that he *does* deserve...

    You Have to Sacrifice For the Things That You Love.

    I'm getting lost, and I can feel it happening. He lives in Canada and I'm in the US, 2000 miles away from my boy, 2222 miles to be exact. Point six, or something, but whatever, that's just because we've talked about it. That's just it, we talk about everything, we've talked...

    You're house becomes your story.

    I like it this way. I guess I'm a "dirty" woman. At least that's what my girlfriend thinks.

    I have never fallen in love,

    maybe I need to rephrase that sentence: I refuse to fall in love. I see love as something that takes hold of your mind and emotions. I refuse to let someone affect me that deeply. All those feelings of jealousy, insecurity, wanting attention, missing someone deeply ect. Those...

    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 in a long distance relationship,

    but I think I should end it. The more I think about him (we'll call him Chris*), the more I think we want different things. Chris* seems to want a more casual relationship, but I'm through with being in those types of relationships. He mentioned that he's been in a long...

    among me and my boyfriend. We have been through so many trials and have overcome each and every one of them. I love him so much and I know deep inside my heart that he's my soul mate. I never thought this kind of relationship would ever happen to me. It happened so fast and I...

    I just started a relationship with Sami.

    I am 25 and I live in Florida US and he is 22 and lives in Algeria. He is Muslim and I am not. He is the sweetest guy and I love him. He has accepted my children as his own and that is hard for a Muslim man to do. He is also a virgin because of his religion. We met on okcupid...

    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...

    Sometimes, she has no choice

    but to hung up the Skype call cause she was talking to her sister. Good thing or bad thing? Sigh. There's no right or wrong honey. Be happy she's with you.

    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...

    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...
