    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...

    I don't know how to cope with not seeing him

    for so very long. Trying to find the strength to be the strong independent woman I am meant to be. He had decided that he doesn't want to be with me until I can pull myself together. My problem is I worry and think to much during the time of being apart.
