    Me And Denise

    Around Christmas I met a Nubian beauty from Ghana, actually from Shorewood but 100% Ghanaian. She was on Christmas Break from U of I. We had a rather strong attachment those two weeks, I was very surprised though at some of the things said to us in the open or things people i...

    Long Distance With A Strong Silent Type.

    I started dating my boyfriend in August, unknowing that it would eventually turn into this. We met online, met in real life, and completely hit it off. We had the usual times where sometimes he'd annoy the heck out of me, but that's life, right? I didn't have a car, and it was a...

    I've only been in one serious LDR,

    and it was the best time of my life. I loved her and everything, but I couldn't keep up with her. She was growing fonder and more attached, and that was pushing me away a little. Most nights I'd ignore her, or be disinterested. I wasn't grateful for what I had. But now, she's...

    I don't believe in long distance relationships.

    Is it really boyfriend and girlfriend if u can even hold hands. It's no more the words and pictures. Nothing is actually real. But saying all that it still completely sucks when u love someone so far away and don't want to loose them. I wish distance didn't matter. But they do...

    They are very difficult & don't seem to last

    most of the time. It's just to hard when you can't see or hold each other often plus it can cost a lot as well. 😏

    My friends, my beautiful friends here on EP, an ocean away, are all in need of a hug. Or some support. Or place to stay. But they are too far away. I don't have the money or the visa. I don't have the ability to help. I can't jump into a car and knock on your door. I am...

    I hate them but I'm in one,

    I love that you can "be with" the on you love but not physically. I just hate that,at time you start to wonder, start to over thinks, confused and then you're no longer sure how you feel or how they feel about you anymore. Distance is a pain in the butt

    I've been in an on and off again long distance

    thing with someone who wants to get more serious with me. Someone that has no intent of ever coming here long term and I don't have the money to go there, the time or the desire to leave my family. They push continually even though I don't have the time these days to skype or...
