    We Met On Yahoo Chat

    One night when I was bored I went on Yahoo chat looking for someone to bug and he messages me. We talked that night for like 5 hours on there. The next day we exchanged phone numbers and we talked everyday. Three months later he asked me to be his gf...I said yes. After a year I...

    I hate that I can't kiss him all the time,

    and that my dad doesn't want me to stay the night with him bothers me a lot.

    Is anyone on here not in a LDR

    because they met online? My gf recently moved 4.5 hours away to school and we've been together living 15 mins apart for 8.5 months and I just want advice from someone that has gone through a similar situation but all I see on here (no offense) are teens in online relationships.

    I've fallen in love with a guy in the

    Philippines, a 12 hour time difference. I don't think I would choose not to love him even if I could, and yet I've never even met him.

    It really bugs me that he rarely texts me

    and when he does he takes forever to reply and we have super lame conversations. You love me supposedly but no I'm wondering if you really do and if I love you too. Giving me way to much anxiety dude.

    For starters, they aren’t

    as hard or as much as a struggle as they may seem. People make them more of a challenge than what they really are. People think distance “plays a factor” in a long distance relationship. It really isn’t a factor. It’s more of a test. An obstacle. A true long...

    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...
