Distance Makes The Heart Grow FonderIbelieve in long-distance relationships. A long-distance relationship is a relationship full of sincerity, attachment and faithfulness but is without an everyday companion. In my long-distance relationship, I’m physically far away from my boyfriend but my heart is always close to his.
Maybe a 19-year-old girl is too young to know what true love is, but I can tell people my true feeling about my relationship—a long-distance relationship. My boyfriend and I knew each other in senior high school, and fell in love in college. Unfortunately, we don’t live in the same city—I’m in Nanjing; he’s in Amoy. At first, many of my friends said they couldn’t see my chance in this competition against distance, since I cannot see or speak to him very often. It’s said that lovers can hardly keep their feelings for one another if they can’t keep in touch daily. However, the passion and love have never faded since the very moment I fell in love with him.
When I was asked this summer about how I kept this love, I said to my friends, “Distance doesn't matter if I really care for the person. If I believe him to be the partner I want to spend the rest of my life with, I’ll find it’s not that hard to hold on to my feelings. The chances are pretty high that girls in relationships depend a lot on their boyfriends, which will definitely make the boys be overwhelmed by their love and then feel exhausted. Fortunately,I’m in a long-distance relationship, which provides me more individual time and space. I can enjoy the happiness brought by the relationship and at the same timehave a life for myself. This allows me continually to grow and allows him to see a girl who can bring more qualities to the relationship. ”
It makes me smile when I recall these words now. I am not afraid to be in a long-distance relationship because I know the one I’m waiting for is one who loves me and is waiting for me too. I will enjoy the moments of waiting, and I believe the sacrifice will be worth it.
It is said that relationships today have become fast faced in this fast-food society. Two people are together just because they need someone physically. However, I believe that true love is never far away from me, ever. I believe that true love lies in long-distance relationships. Distance makes the heart grow fonder. With a fonder heart, I’ll make every effort to bring myself closer to him. When I’ve overcome all the hardships, I will accompany him forever.
