    I don't think anyone knows how hard it is.

    To love someone who lives so far away. To miss them so bad you want to stop what you're doing and run to them, or swim to them, or if you're lucky enough to drop everything and fly to them. Some of us aren't. Most of us aren't. It's like everything reminds them of...

    Please, Come Home!

    My life is a mess. I need you most at times like these. I'm stressed, full of anger, I feel worthless. I need you to hold me in your arms and tell me everything is going to be okay. Lend me your shoulder to cry on. Help me through this difficult time. My old escape doesn't seem...

    I was in a LDR. We live over 5.

    000 miles apart and have a time difference of 6 hrs. I tried to make it work on every level, but he just doesn´t want to continue with it anymore. He says he can´t deal with me being miles apart. He doesn´t see a chance how we could get together and he thinks he has to start...

    Message To All Those In Long Distance....

    I did it for 8 years. We met at 16. We are 24 now. If it is meant to be it will work out. It will be hard, you will both screw up, make mistakes, yell and scream, cry... but if you can learn to forgive, to trust, to communicate... to appreciate your time together... to see the...

    I have not been on here in a while.

    987 days since we've started dating.

    Been apart from each other for over 2 years. 7-8 hours of time difference. I miss her a lot, but I never regretted loving her.

    for 2 months before he finally decided to come visit me. We have been talking for 3 months now but officially dating for one. I think I love him. He lives 5 hours away. This is the first long distance relationship I have ever been in and it is tearing me apart and sometimes I...

    If I breathe and allow logic to surpass emotion

    then I would know that he is ok. That it is not uncommon for him to lose electricity for hours, sometimes days, at a time. That even though he is in a dangerous place, surrounded by unpredictable circumstances - he knows how to keep himself safe. Anyone who is in a situation...

    No matter how far apart we are,

    no matter where life takes us, or how long we have to be apart. My love will NEVER waiver, NEVER falter, NEVER lessen. I WILL be with you. I WILL marry you. I WILL start a family with you. I WILL grow old with you. Only those in a long distance relationship will understand how...

    You Have to Sacrifice For the Things That You Love.

    I'm getting lost, and I can feel it happening. He lives in Canada and I'm in the US, 2000 miles away from my boy, 2222 miles to be exact. Point six, or something, but whatever, that's just because we've talked about it. That's just it, we talk about everything, we've talked...

    Time runs out so fast during the visits.

    She has helped me learn to stand on my own two feet and realize a can walk alone, and it's not a bad thing to hold someone's hand as you walk. She has helped me after two years, finally get over the crippling grief I faced. And she helped learn what love is, selfless, and...

    Just remembering his last visit makes me smile
