“It’s easy to love someone when they’re happy. What’s hard is loving someone when they’re crying on the bathroom floor at 2am because everything came crashing down at once.”—Midnight thoughts (sometimes I’m a mess)
don’t date someone that promises you forever. date someone who acknowledges that life happens, that people change, that things may get in the way. date someone who despite knowing all of that, tries their hardest for your relationship.
“He said to her, “who are you going to believe? The mirror, a photograph, or the eyes of the man who thinks you’re the most beautiful girl on the planet?”—-i.c. “Beauty is in the Eye…” (via delicatepoetry)
My boyfriend and I were in a long distance relationship, but he let the distance win. He said he cant stand distance because he wants to be able to hold me in his arms. Has your boyfriend ever had this problem? If he has, how did he deal with it?
He did have this problem in the beginning, and now after so many years he’s more adaptive. We are fortunate enough to be able to see each other once a month for 3-5 days.
I asked him how he dealt with the distance and he said it was to talk to me. To hear my voice, or facetime me. It was to be in constant communication with me.
What's your LDR like? How do you deal with missing him?
I don’t think I can put my relationship into words, but I’ll try.
My LDR is hard but rewarding every day. On a day to day basis Trey and I text maybe anywhere from 15-25 times a day, so not that much, and talk anywhere from 1-2 hours in total in a day. We’ve both been so busy lately ( him with prepping for grad school and me applying to grad schools) it can get pretty chaotic.
There is one thing that we have done from the beginning which is every Sunday night we face time for about 2-4 hours and catch up with each other. On Wednesday nights we get pizza and work on whatever we need to get done while with each other on face time.
So in no way is my LDR perfect.
As to how I deal with missing him, I just wear his shirts and listen to his voice when I can. It’s hard but I think that over the years I’ve learned how to tough it out, and I’ve grown thicker skin.
“But I must admit I miss you quite terribly. The world is too quiet without you nearby. I go to bed early and rise late and feel as if I have hardly slept.”—Lemony Snicket, The Beatrice letters (via xallofthelights)
“I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful at 3am. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful before coffee and after coffee and in between. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful with messy hair and eyes half closed. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when you put on your black dress or wear you’re slippers to the grocery store. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when you have headphones in and you’re not listening to a thing I say. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when you’re laughing or crying or we’re arguing. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when you fail an exam and when you top your class. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when you can’t find the car keys or bought new shoes or want ice cream late at night. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when you’re late for a meeting or you burnt all the cookies because you didn’t follow the damn recipe. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when the sun is rising and setting or when the day is cloudy or the rain is falling. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when the night is warm and the stars are shining. I’m going to tell that you’re beautiful in front of museums and at concerts and while building sandcastles. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful before the movie and after the movie and while buying popcorn. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful while you’re cleaning or drawing or writing. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful when the plane is landing or we’re catching a cab or we’re walking hand in hand through a park covered in snow. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful in front of my parents and my friends and in front of yours too. I’m going to tell you that you’re beautiful just because I think you are and even if sometimes you don’t think you’re beautiful and you feel just a little worn out; how beautiful I think you are will never be worn out to me.”—dear you - c.p
