    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...

    The day you arrived VS the day you had to leave.

    .. The day we have been waiting for, to see and hold each other is coming fast. I remember waiting for your flight to arrive, checking flight updates on my phone every minute and my stomach filling with butterflies as I wait in the airport. When I saw you come around the...

    Just remembering his last visit makes me smile

    so much. Six nights spent snuggled against your chest, ordering in food so we wouldn't have to leave, laughing at goofy shows together. Hours upon hours of seeing that amazing smile, the one that comes just before his own laugh. I'll always cherish those amazing moments. It was...

    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...

    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...

    The worst is when you need them,

    but they can't physically be there for you. Just one hug could give me all the strength in the world.

    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...

    I thought I would share some of my personal

    advice regarding long distance relationships. I know how stressful and painful they can be but, here are my tips that I find will make it easier. 1. Plan ahead: there's nothing worse when you got no idea when you're other half will visit you again. This can make days become...

    No Longer

    I am no longer in a long distance relationship. I no longer fall asleep on the phone. I no longer send a text as soon as I wake up. I no longer talk about how much I wish I could hold her. I no longer fantasize about being with her everyday. I no longer wait for months to...

    and my every thought, but yet, I want to be consumed more by you. The dreams we have will keep us warm. But the first kiss is when life will begin. ~ Unknown And by then... our dream will be complete

    I am dating the love of my life.

    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...

    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...
