    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...

    415 Miles

    This number goes through my brain constantly....  415 miles.  That's how far away my girlfriend is from me.  Oddly enough, we lived REALLY close to each other for a good portion of our lives.  With the same interests, we probably even bumped into each other here or there...

    There’s something different about you.

    I don’t know what it is, but it makes me want to change every bad thing about myself.

    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...

    So much emotional pain bottled inside.

    I just can't bring myself to fully let it out. Keep subconsciously holding it in.

    Me and my boyfriend have been dating

    for almost a year now and we plan on meeting this summer. It's been a great year being with him but it's also been hard. I think one of the hardest things is just seeing people around me holding hands and kissing sometimes. I wish I could do that with the person I love everyday...

    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...

    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?

    so what did I get in the mail? his shirt and a handwritten letter. I read the letter in front of him and, embarrassingly started tearing up. I have never felt so loved in my life. I cannot wait to have many more anniversaries with him.

    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...
