My Relationship

I met my current boyfriend two years ago, at a New Year's Eve party at a nearby college. The party was hosted by some friends I went to elementary school with. We hit it off right away, but I was just getting out of a serious relationship, and our mutual friends advised him to take it easy. We ran into each other off and on a couple of other times over the next two years, but nothing materialized. We each had a couple of short-term relationships during that time, which ended badly. Once in a while, he would float across my thoughts, but I never really thought much of it. Five months ago, we were at a bonfire together, with that same group of mutual friends. At some point, he went inside and was spending some time by himself in a back room - just to get away from the party for awhile. Noticing that he was missing, and not finding myself enjoying the party much either, I went looking for him. We chatted and flirted for the next 20 minutes or so, until the rest of our friends wandered in from outside. When the party was over, we went our separate ways, but I could not get him off my mind. We sent each other a couple of e-mails over the next week, before exchanging phone numbers. We had nightly phone calls for the next month, before he came to visit for the first time. The rest is really history. I fell in love with him over the phone, and through the times we manage to visit each other. I am fully committed to this relationship, but we are unfortunately both busy students in different cities. We have another year and half left of school each. I suppose we are luckier than some couples - we do get to see each other at least once a month - sometimes even more often. But there are definitely days when I could really use a hug from him, but I know I won't get one for another couple of weeks. I am confident that we will make it through this phase of our relationship though. Bigger and better things are in our future!
