    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...

    Two weeks ago on the 10th was the anniversary of the first conversation I had with someone I met here on EP a year ago. On the 10th of November 2012, I engaged in a yahoo messenger with an EP member named DulcebeautyV. I was only expecting a fun and light hearted friendship, and...

    Isnt it crazy? How you can accidentally stumble

    across someone and they can become one of,if not the, most important people/person in your life? I always swore up down, until i was blue in the face, that i would never be in a long distance relationship, that they were never with it. Crazy to think that was only a little over...

    I've been avoiding whining,

    but I think people here can relate. My hummingbird visited for Christmas and stayed until after New Year's. It was amazing. We went on a walk at midnight on Christmas day. We'd just picked him up from the airport the day before, which, I must say, was the best present I...

    Neither of us wanted to part. It was a wonderful time together though we had an unexpected medical emergency. I think this visit showed we can deal with the bad as well as the good. All I know is I desire you in my life. I was so happy when you said yes Fri evening at the lake...

    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.

    For me to get to him,

    I would have to fly 10 hours on a non stop flight. It really is the most painful relationship I have ever been in. To know that I'm not sure when this distance will end and how would it end is killing me. When I am visiting him, I miss my friends and family so much. But when...

    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...
