I don't have many people my age that I can talk to.
I guess that's mostly the reason I'm here on EP.
I work with children under the age of five, which is amazing, but I miss having friends.
I do have a boyfriend, who is amazing, but we're in a long-distance relationship and now that my phone is broken, I never get to talk to him.
Well, we were chatting on facebook the other day, and he asked me if it would be okay with me for him to take another girl to his prom. I mean, I can't go with him, and it's the other exchange student at his school who has a boyfriend back home, and I can trust him completely, but this is tearing me up.
I'm so angry because I would kill to dance with him, and she gets to see him every day and on top of that, she gets to be held by him and dance with him. He's never danced with me.
I'm so lonely. I hate just imagining another girl having fun in his arms.
I don't even have male friends that would want to dance with me because I haven't got any friends. I am so alone, and he just reminded me of how alone I am. I just want to be close to him. I want him to want to be close to me.
I'm so upset about this, and I know he just want to go and have fun and experience an american dance and whatever, I just feel so lonely and I hate him for not being as alone as I am, which is wrong and I know it, but I hate that he is taking another girl to his prom instead of me.
It just hurts.

I know the feeling. It's not easy. =( *hug-hug*

Thank you. I appreciate it.
And I love hugs.

I used to be in a long distance relationship. One of the most difficult parts was being so far away. We couldn't watch movies together, hug each other, couldn't go to dances together. Some days it was fine. Other days horrible. But it gets better, in a really strange way. Of course there are times when one really can't stand it, but don't give in. It's possible to make it through. =) Imagine one day being able to dance with him everywhere and anywhere! =D
And in that case you can get another one! *gives you a biiig hug* =)

I totally understand that sometimes it's horrible, sometimes it's not so bad. I cried for like an hour over that, while he was kinda okay with it, but when I told him we'd have to wait to cuddle up and watch doctor who, he freaked out and had a meltdown. What strange way do you mean?
I can't wait for the day to come!

Aww, Sweety. =( You two Skype? At least you know he wants to be with you too. -) You just deal with it for some reason.
Hopefully there'll be helium balloons to let loose and confetti to throw. ;)
*giggle-giggle* You're so sweet. =)

Nothing but time and planning for your next time together with him will make this feel better. Get it on the calendar, and decide where you will meet him. I think it helps a great deal if you have a definite date, something to look forward to until you can be together, even if it's just for a day.

It's just a little harder when you're an entire continent away.

I know exactly how you feel and how far apart are you guys?

Well, he's doing an exchange in Kansas this year (I'm on the east coast of the US) but normally he's in Germany.
