    Countdown- last day. I'll meet her

    for the first time on afternoon tomorrow. 3 months. It's fast, long, sad, mad, tears, loneliness, doubtful, joys, happiness, touched, and gratefulness. Everything will restart again once we finally meet each other. Trust-respect-share-compromise. If she is the one, you will...

    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 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...

    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...

    Message To All Those In Long Distance....

    I did it for 8 years. We met at 16. We are 24 now. If it is meant to be it will work out. It will be hard, you will both screw up, make mistakes, yell and scream, cry... but if you can learn to forgive, to trust, to communicate... to appreciate your time together... to see the...

    We have been together

    for 3 months and in a month from now I have to move to Sweden for 4 months for a job opportunity. It kills me to know that he's a great guy and I love him and it may not work not because of us but because it's too soon to be separated that long. Wish me luck, I'll keep posting...

    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.

    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...

    There is no denying that loving someone without
