    I love her with all my heart.

    And I hope she reads this and understands. Yes we met one year ago on this very site, we knew right away where each other lived. We took on a long distance relationship and all the struggles that go along with it. There's been bad times and happy times! Tears of sadness and...

    Cravings

    really sweet girl on this music website. I live in Virginia, and she lives all the way in Scotland. Anyway, I helped her write a song just because she needed help. Right away we kinda clicked and started talking. Then about 2 weeks ago, she admitted she loved me. So thus starts...

    Thank you Skype I never imagined how cool

    Skype could be especially while in a long distance relationship. The first glimpse of her smile and her beautiful eyes were the most amazing feeling I have had in nearly 8 weeks. It took a bit of time to get the Skype thing going, but it was worth the wait.

    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...

    Texting sucks.... My boyfriend moved to a

    different state a couple days ago and I'm already sick of having to communicate through texting all the time. O.o There's just no body language or context or anything and it's so easy to miscommunicate. Just had to get that off my mind. Anyone else experienced this?

    The hardest thing to do is to keep positive

    when things spiral downward. All I want is to come home to him and be able to vent about my day while he holds me tight. And it's freezing. I want to cuddle. Long distance is the worst. I hate this so much.

    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!

    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...
