    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...

    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...

    Me and my boyfriend have been dating

    for almost a year now and we plan on meeting this summer. It's been a great year being with him but it's also been hard. I think one of the hardest things is just seeing people around me holding hands and kissing sometimes. I wish I could do that with the person I love everyday...

    And we got into a huge fight right

    before we parted ways yesterday. We won't see each other for another two weeks. We've already talked about it and made up, but it's going to be tough to recover if we can't even see each other. Has anyone else been in this situation?

    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 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...

    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...
