    So tonight. Not only did I get to Skype with

    him. Which was so great. But we talked about rings and babies and our wedding. I am so in love with him. Yeah. We are apart. But distance is temporary. Love isn't. (: I'm so happy I could burst!!

    It all started with a friend request over facebook, i added her and from that very moment i was attracted to her which i didn't act on as i had felt it before but this time it was different. For the first few months we didn't really talk so much just a few comments to each other...

    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...

    With an absolute gorgeous girl.

    It's been well over a month now and I still feel the same about her as I did when we first dated. She's so sweet, cute, caring, beautiful and down-to-earth. We're both in love and she's the only person I've really opened up to about myself and my unfortunate self-confidence...

    Sometimes we talk on the phone and we are both awkward and shy. She loves me and and I love her. I didn't think love would find me but it did.

    ''long distance'' means different things to

    different people. It's not like we are on different continents or in different countries or anything, but we live forty miles apart, and that to me, is long distance! We see each other as often as we can, but its not always easy with financial issues, we both have kids to take...

    I am so excited. Your house is going up on sale Monday and the agent mentioned it quite possibly may sell quickly. That would mean you move down to be with me sooner than we thought. That elates me.

    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...
