I Am In a Long Distance Relationship

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 8,049 People

    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 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...

    Being apart from the person,

    you love has to be one of the most challenging experiences in a persons life. Every day that you are apart. Can't help but be reflected on as precious moments, funny moments, useful moments ..lost! Of course there is another reality which.. Time apart somehow re affirms...

    I love my boyfriend. We've been together four

    months. But things are hard, really hard, and it hurts so much. On Sunday we had an argument that ended in him saying, 'Don't come back'. He's always been so down on himself - he suffers from frequent depression, controlled by medication, and it always, always seems like our...

    There is no denying that loving someone without

    being able to touch is intense and can be deeply frustrating. The body seems to be always aroused without being able to make full release. The heart is constantly craving. The mind is...put under tremendous stress to reconciliate the passion and frustration. This sometimes makes...

    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...

    across someone and they can become one of,if not the, most important people/person in your life? I always swore up down, until i was blue in the face, that i would never be in a long distance relationship, that they were never with it. Crazy to think that was only a little over...

    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...

    "She's worth the distance".

    Sometimes I see this phrase spoken by some men in LDR and wonder (and jealous). I understand that women can manage LDR somehow when they have him in mind, but men? Men prefer the women to be nearby, I thought. So, why do you think she's worth the distance? I sincerely want to...

    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.
