    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...

    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...

    Please, Come Home!

    My life is a mess. I need you most at times like these. I'm stressed, full of anger, I feel worthless. I need you to hold me in your arms and tell me everything is going to be okay. Lend me your shoulder to cry on. Help me through this difficult time. My old escape doesn't seem...

    I've been in a LDR for over 3 years now,

    and it's going strong. I met her on a blogging website by accident and we starting talking out of boredom. After a days I couldn't get her off my mind. I remember seeing the private message pop up and feeling so happy and excited to talk to her. We eventually started talking on...

    and I really liked him until he left for the navy. During that time I just forgot about him and met my current boyfriend. We have been dating for 2 months now but I haven't met him in person. We talk almost everyday and we FaceTime but what gets me sad is that he likes to talk...

    Long distance tests your bond of love

    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...

    ..why do I care about him so much? I'm starting to think that I'm making this bigger than it needs to be... And while other girls go all smooching on their boyfriends, I'm just there wishing that if could do that to mine. I guess I crave attention... I like to know someone cares...

    I'm in a long distance relationship

    and today he tells me it's too much temptation with him being away at school because the girls are all over him. He told me he was joking but I still think he meant it. It sucks being so far away, I feel like someone will take him away from me..

    There is no denying that loving someone without

    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...
