In Love With Someone Across Seas.

I dated this guy for almost a year, and he was a real jerk.

The whole time, I had this friend that lives in a totally different country, telling me that I was beautiful and perfect and that I didn't deserve what was happening to me.

I put up with so much in the relationship I was in.

I was insulted, ridiculed, and put down on a daily basis.

The other guy became my best friend, and the only person I could turn to.

A lot happened in that time period. I was over come with feelings.

I tried to commit suicide three times. I didn't know what to do.

I didn't know if anyone could ever love me. That relationship finally ended.

I had been having feelings for my friend for a few months at this point, and he knew it.

I couldn't help but to tell him. I told my boyfriend at the time, and he didn't care that I cared about someone else.

He just wanted someone to use, I suppose.

When it finally ended between us, my friend and I got together.

I am so deeply in love with him, but he lives in a different country than I do and things are difficult.

It's actually working quite well, we've been together for almost a year.

I'm leaving next month on a school break to go spend some time with him.

He's everything to me, we actually plan to get married when we are both finished with school.

I am in College and he is in High School. He graduates in December this year. I still have about a year left of school.

But every day brings him closer.

It promises to be a success story.

People that ridicule something they don't understand annoy me.

Just because you can't touch someone, doesn't mean you can not love them.

I don't need sex to show him I want to be with him for the rest of my life, and that he is the most important aspect of my life.

He feels the same way, and I believe we will be together forever.

Success in long distance relationships, is possible.

But, like any relationship, you must work at it.

when you typed that i can honestly say I cried because I feel the same damn way about my best friend and i find what you said so honest and so pure in your conviction and love for him. I know how that truly feels and i give you both my eternal blessing. I also understand the abuse you went through and to find outta that a guy who cherishes you was your friend through that and for it to deepen is so beautiful. The love he will show you and you him will heal whatever crap your previous jerk of a boyfriend did.You have my wishes and regards always :-)

Good job working at it. I hope it pays off for you. At least you're willing to work and not expect it to fall in your lap.
