    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 still find it surreal

    I just started a relationship with Sami.

    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...

    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...

    Sometimes, she has no choice

    but to hung up the Skype call cause she was talking to her sister. Good thing or bad thing? Sigh. There's no right or wrong honey. Be happy she's with you.

    I just got back from taking her to the airport.

    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.

    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...

    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?

    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...
