    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'm 17 from the UK, she's 15 from the USA,

    as things go we've been lucky. We get to Skype every single day, and have skyped every single day since we started dating (Christmas Day, 01:12 am, 2013 - Happiest day of my life). She dragged me out of a deep and dark place, I was depressed, and on the verge of self harm. One...

    We have been together

    for eight months, soon to be nine, I did something that I thought I would never do in a relationship - cheat - a guy gave me oral. I backed out but he convinced me to keep going with what was happening. I am not sure how I should tell my boyfriend. A guy friend of mine, that I...

    Some days are better

    than others that's for sure. Sometimes I feel like I'm wasting my time, other times I feel like it's going to be so worth it in the end. What's a relationship without a little doubt? We've been together for about 6 months now and we're still hanging on. That's my loveworld and I...

    It's a nostalgic feeling that

    after a year, I stumbled across this website again. I read my old posts that are mostly about my struggles of being in a long distance relationship. Most of them about missing him and hoping I will be able to be with him soon. A year has passed and a lot of things has happened...

    Cravings

    My LDR boyfriend and I have never met

    and we don't actually know when we might meet. We have been together for a year and I love him with everything inside of me, but the distance is killing me and I don't know how healthy this relationship is. I'm beginning to think that all the late nights talking and thinking...

    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...

    I don't want to act as a needy girlfriend.

    I disdain those who act like a clingy baby of a girl who would die without their men by their side. But then that's how it feels. I miss him so much, it hurts. It will take several months or years before I see him again. If only I knew it will be this hard, I never should've...

    My boyfriend and I have been together

    for quite some time but are 800+ miles apart and seeing each other is far from easy. I personally believe the distance makes our bond stronger but am surrounded by people who believe the distance makes our relationship less real.

    With the love of my life.

    We met 15 years ago, after breaking up I moved and we lost contact. Now we have been reunited. After another break up in 2013 I moved back to TN. We have decided to get back together and now I'm trying to move her down here so we can truly be together again!
