    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...

    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...

    Some of you know this, some of you don't. I'll start at the beginning though, just because I think I need to.We met on EP. I was in a pissy mood, he was being a smart-*** and he made me giggle. We talked, and stalked, and talked some more. I found that I was thinking about him...

    He lives 900 miles away,

    but flies to my city frequently for business. His birth home is even farther since he is French. Loving, passionate and attentive, his affections consume me. In two weeks I get to see him again, feel his arms around me, and hear his amazingly sexy voice. Together and apart, it...

    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...

    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...

    Oh God, this is really hard

    but it is extremely worth it. I know long distance relationships can work but I never wanted it for myself because I didn't think I could do it. But then I met the perfect person in the entire world for me on EP and sort of wearily started a relationship with him. I am literally...

    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...

    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...
