“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
“Wake me up at 3am just to tell me that I’m not close enough. Wake me again at 7am because we need to get ready for the day. Once more at 7:15 because we both know I don’t do mornings. Tell me about the dream you had last night while we have toast and orange juice. I’m tired as hell but I hear and feel every single word that you say. Ask me how I slept because you feel like you’ve been talking for too long. My answer is always the same when you ask, sleeping next to you is heavenly. Apologize for waking me up at 3 while I assure you that it’s okay and that I’m so glad that you did, then rally in your stubborn persistence the notion that it was out of line. Start explaining how wrong it was. You won’t get very far into your rant because I need to kiss you. Not only to stop you from being ridiculous but because I love you so much more than I can express with words. So please, wake me up at 3am so I can pull you closer and kiss you softly. “I love you endlessly” will be my sleepy response each time; as those four words are the only ones that can even come close to explaining my feelings for you.”—I love you a lot.

“Date someone who would rather watch your favorite movie with you then go to a party on Friday night. Date someone who will share their food with you even though you said you didn’t want any. Date someone who will warm your hands in the winter and kiss your pink nose. Date someone who will text you they love you at 2am and at 9pm. Date someone who will let you change the station in the car when they’re driving. Date someone who can make you smile when you would rather die. Date someone who makes your insides feel like you’ve just downed a bottle of vodka. Date someone who makes you better.”—(via jessielou24)
Long story short, my bf of 9 months has decided to call it quits last week. Everything was goin perfect, it was the perfect kind of love, a match made in heaven. It went from great to falling apart the next day. He said that the distance is killing him & he's having doubts about the future. He claims that he wanted more and it was getting harder for him. So he chose the easier way out than fighting for our love. How did this happen? Is there a chance he'll come back?
As I’m not sure of the specifics of your relationship, I couldn’t tell you why your relationship ended. I also cannot tell you whether or not he will come back. What I can tell you is that you can remain optimistic, or you could carry on with your life. He may come back, or may not. What you need to see is that if he has no issue leaving you that quickly, is he really that invested in your relationship? If he came back to you tonight, would you take him back?
followers, and I don’t know how to thank you all for joining me on my journey throughout my LDR. I’m so grateful for each and every one of you! Tonight I plan on writing a couple of posts. Mostly FAQ’s, and I’m responding to EVERY single question in my inbox! So feel free to ask anything that you may be curious about.
any LDR blogs like or reblog this so that I may follow you. I only follow three blogs and need more blogs to share within the community! Also for my personal blog as well!
Hey so your blog is amazing and my boyfriend and I have been dating for a year and a half already and in a couple of months he will be starting college 4 hours away. Our relationship is amazing and he makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world. However every-time I think about I start sobbing because I know soon I won't be able to just call him to go to his house or go on a lunch date randomly. Do you ever just get used to them not being around anymore once they leave?
Unfortunately you do get accustomed to it after a while, it’s as if it’s a lifestyle.
