    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...

    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've realized that trust is the number one

    thing in this type of relationship. I love my boyfriend and even though we argue, we still want to be in each other's lives. Forever and always babe. :)

    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...

    and it's going strong. I met her on a blogging website by accident and we starting talking out of boredom. After a days I couldn't get her off my mind. I remember seeing the private message pop up and feeling so happy and excited to talk to her. We eventually started talking on...

    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...

    And we got into a huge fight right

    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
