I Miss My Long-distance Boyfriend
Well, my long-distance bf and I have been together for 5 months. He lives about 45 minutes away (I know that's not too bad, but it's far enough that we can't just hop in the car spur of the moment to see each other). We are both going through divorces and we both have our own kids.
I am so in love with him. He's a wonderful person and the answer to all my prayers. Sometimes we talk about a future together. The timing isn't right, but I would love it if he asked me to marry him.
We generally see each other a couple of times each week. We were supposed to see each other tonight, but my son is sick and needs to stay home with me instead of his dad. Now, I may not be able to see my bf until Friday night. That seems like an eternity to me right now.
Yes, I got myself into this situation. I have been in a long-distance relationship before and I knew it wasn't easy. Lots of missing, lots of crying. But, I feel like he's worth it, and eventually we'll either move in together or get engaged. Anyway, I guess I just needed to vent here. I've been crying for hours now and I think it's helping to pour out my heart here. So, any words of wisdom would be appreciated. Anyone out there in the same boat? How are you handling it? What do you and your SO do to deal with the distance?
