    No Longer

    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...

    Missing him intensely.

    I have to go to court today. Domestic abuse case with husband (separated). If he were within 3 hours of here, he would be with me. No doubt in my mind. He aches for me on days like this just as much as I ache for him. I have slept with his shirt every night since the weekend...

    Cravings

    Cravings, The terrible and wonderful things about long distance relationships are cravings. I crave her, those three words seem to cover it, but it does not spell out in such a simple manner. With time and conversation and knowledge of each other, I have come to crave very...

    Love Story?

    It should all be about joy

    and feeling love... Obstacles not bigger than love will have them look like small bumps on the road... But lately time differences and separated lives makes me feel like a small vulnerable and downsized person... the bumps starts looking like high mountains from that perspective...

    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...

    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...

    I'm completely in love with my boyfriend.

    We've been apart for 2 months now and I get to see him in a week. He's 2000 miles away and will be for the next four years. It's lonely but worth it because it leads to appreciating all the small things and loving them even more. And I know that after school we will get to have...

    As of March 21st 2015,

    I will have been in a long distance relationship for 5 years. I am in love with the guy I am with, but the only problem is, while we are apart, he hardly talks to me. I have to fight with him to get him to text me. He is very depressed, because his friend died last year. So I...

    It hurts. It's pure torture.

    But it's worth it. I still haven't figured out how to manage the dreadful emotions that come with being in a long distance relationship. The endless nights of crying, the continuous heartache, the intense longings, the depression. I wonder if it will ever get easier, because...

    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...

    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...

    It breaks my heart when he tells me: he knows

    the distance is far, and I deserve to be happy, and if I ever feel like the distance is too much, tell him. He will grudgingly understand if I'm lonely and don't want to keep the up the LDR. I don't know how to make him more confident that I'm not even considering ending this...

    I Was In a Very Silly Long Distance Relationship!

    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...

    for one another, as well as patience. There will always be that feeling of insecurity, worry and haste towards one another but that's what makes the love so strong in the relationship. You love each other to the point where you'd do anything to keep it from fading. I love my bf...
