    With the love of my life.

    We met 15 years ago, after breaking up I moved and we lost contact. Now we have been reunited. After another break up in 2013 I moved back to TN. We have decided to get back together and now I'm trying to move her down here so we can truly be together again!

    K. E. G. Thing is you dont actually consider

    yourself living.. Your life seems to be paused and it would only resume when you actually live together and start your own life together :) Get a job, a house, live a sustainable life.. Let alone the passion and emotions thats bottled up and would finally be released.. How 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...

    We have been together

    for eight months, soon to be nine, I did something that I thought I would never do in a relationship - cheat - a guy gave me oral. I backed out but he convinced me to keep going with what was happening. I am not sure how I should tell my boyfriend. A guy friend of mine, that I...

    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...

    Cravings

    Cravings, The terrible and wonderful things about long distance relationships are cravings. I crave her, those three words seem to cover it, but it does not spell out in such a simple manner. With time and conversation and knowledge of each other, I have come to crave very...

    Countdown- last day. I'll meet her

    for the first time on afternoon tomorrow. 3 months. It's fast, long, sad, mad, tears, loneliness, doubtful, joys, happiness, touched, and gratefulness. Everything will restart again once we finally meet each other. Trust-respect-share-compromise. If she is the one, you will...

    415 Miles

    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...

    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...

    for 3 months and in a month from now I have to move to Sweden for 4 months for a job opportunity. It kills me to know that he's a great guy and I love him and it may not work not because of us but because it's too soon to be separated that long. Wish me luck, I'll keep posting...

    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 Was In a Very Silly Long Distance Relationship!

    My boyfriend and I have been together

    for quite some time but are 800+ miles apart and seeing each other is far from easy. I personally believe the distance makes our bond stronger but am surrounded by people who believe the distance makes our relationship less real.
