    Feeling really ****** right now.

    She smoked because of depression and the last time she did that I told her if it happen again we would be over. But now I can't make up my mind. I don't know if we could work out but I just don't want it to end. I missed her and regret the things I said to her.

    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...

    I'm in a long distance relationship

    and today he tells me it's too much temptation with him being away at school because the girls are all over him. He told me he was joking but I still think he meant it. It sucks being so far away, I feel like someone will take him away from me..

    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...

    There is no denying that loving someone without

    For starters, they aren’t

    as hard or as much as a struggle as they may seem. People make them more of a challenge than what they really are. People think distance “plays a factor” in a long distance relationship. It really isn’t a factor. It’s more of a test. An obstacle. A true long...
