He’s in Louisiana and I’m in Kansas. I met Joshua over a stupid virtual game that I started playing after my parents got divorced. I was so depressed, I shut myself in my room every day and went on this game, talking to random people from all over, hoping someone, something could get my mind off the divorce for awhile. I had made a circle of friends on this game, and I just so happened to meet Josh through one of those friends. He had just broken up with this girl who was in the circle, and my other friend was trying to hook us up because she thought I’d be better for him. So we started IMing and finally, about a month after we started talking, I gave him my number. We texted daily. I always looked forward to talking to him every day after school. He was so smart and funny and cute, but he was a party boy. The one all the girls wanted (All the girls still want him but he doesn’t let them :]). He hooked up with girls constantly, he didn’t tell me this but I found out… And eventually, he stopped hooking up with girls. One night he said we should play a game of 21 Questions. I thought it sounded fun. Around Question #6, he said “One, two skip a few… Will you be my girlfriend?” I couldn’t stop smiling. He wanted me. I accepted. It took him awhile to get out of his party phase, but he has told me so many times that I’ve changed him for the better. It’s been 2 and a half years now since we’ve been together. We’re both freshmen in college, and in less than a month I’ll see him for the first time. It’s almost unreal, the fact that I’m going to see him, be able to hold him, kiss him, hug him, look at him. I can hardly wait. He’s made me the happiest girl alive without even being here with me. I can’t imagine being with anyone else. I love him to death. :)
I love my boyfriend. He means the world to me. But we're 4 hours away. And in less than a month, he's leaving for Basic Training and we're going to be 8 hours away. To make matters worse, we won't have much way of communication other than writing letters, which he only gets on Sundays. He's going to be gone for 3 months, and I don't know if I can go that long without talking to or seeing him. How can we make this work? I want it to so badly.
I’ve never had this happen to me, so I went to ask my friend, who is now engaged to her high school sweetheart. He left for the army when they graduated and it was hard. He wasn’t able to talk to her over the phone, his voice was slowly drifting away from her memory. But the letters are what kept them together. The pictures, that captured a thousand words, that would never be said. He served his country, and came home. They’re now getting married in December. So I think if they can do it , you most definitely can too!
(continuing from the ask before) like all we do is argue. We'll text each other all day and be fine. But the second we get off the phone at night, we fight over something stupid and it feels like a mess. I feel like I end up crying when we get off the phone more often than not. I still love him, I will always love him, but I don't know why we're arguing or where it's coming from, but I really don't know what to do about it :/
So me and my boyfriend more or less started out in a long distance relationship (long story short, we're from the same city, I met him and started dating him just as I went off to university for my first year, he goes to university in the city that we're from). Anyways, we were fine last time. Totally on the same page, we've never argued ... just a really good relationship. I came back for the summer and same thing. And now it's been a week since I've been back at university, and now it seems
why dont you ever update? i really like this blog and now no one ever posts :(
I’m sorry that the blog has take a major different route than planned, I’ve honestly been flooded with school. I thought it would be a break and all. Not at all, somehow trey and I have found a way to still make it all work.I I’ll update every week now :) ( again trying my best.)
She’s in Arizona. I’m in California. We met through MySpace (of course), and we started talking through texts, and I wanted to talk to her, because I was curious to talk. She said that it was cool, but that I had to call, because she had never called anyone first before. I made her call. (: We started talking for about a month, and she had a boyfriend at the time. One day, when we were talking; his boyfriend called and he had broken up with her, so I was there to comfort her and talk her through it. After a while, she said that he wanted to tell me something really bad, but that she’d never have the guts to say it. I kinda had a hint of what it was, and she eventually said that she really liked me. I also wanted to say something, and I did; which was that I really wanted to kiss her.
About a week later, while she was doing some chores, we were on the phone, and she was telling me that her friend was asking why we weren’t together, and I also asked. Then I asked her if she’d go out with me, and she said yes.<3
But… *sighs* nowadays, it’s been tough. It’ll be 11 months on the 19th, but.. the distance is killing me… She doesn’t have a cell phone anymore, and it’s been almost 2 months without it.
Sometimes I feel if she’d be better off, or vice versa..
But, I love this girl. I’ve never felt such a connection with anyone else, which is what keeps me strong. Although, lately I’ve been battling with some depressing, suicidal thoughts. I’m usually a funny guy to be around, but I don’t know.
I will say one thing; I CANNOT WAIT, til she’s in my arms…
We were friends for his junior year, when I was a freshman. We didn’t really talk though, but we always had a special connection. Both of our hearts got broken that year. The summer of my tenth grade and his twelfth grade, we started talking. Things just began. We noticed we had something special; I had never felt something like that for someone, ever. And he felt the same way. Since we were both recuperating from our break ups, we gave it some time. We were interested in each other, but not officially together. We got together December of 2010. It has been one of the most fruitful relationships. We were scared about what was to come, as we had no idea what to do about us. But we loved each other so much, we decided to go for it. And I believe it has been one of the best decisions we have made. In late June, I left for a month to live in Italy to study art history and Italian. Through skype, emailing(so retro haha), and many other methods of communication, we survived. Not only did we survive, we flourished. He came back halfway through August for 11 days. He differed from college this year, so he does not start until my senior year. He is currently in Vienna studying for the next 3 and a half months. Then he comes back in December, and will be here until January. This thought makes me so happy :)
Though it has been hard at times, I cannot imagine myself with anyone else, or choosing any other thing. He makes me so happy, whether he be 4,940 miles away from me(which he is), or right next to me. He is the man I love, and that’s what matters. You don’t need to see everybody everyday to be in love. I can tell you that it has given us a strength incomparable. It’s been almost 9 months now(in 11 days hah), and I can tell you that we are happier than ever. I can’t wait until he comes back and I can put my arms around him. I don’t consider distance a problem anymore. It’s a challenge, that’s for sure. But love can overcome anything, can’t it?
My long distance boyfriend and I broke up a few weeks ago, but we still love each other a lot. I broke up with him because I just needed time to myself before school started, and we won't be able to see each other until next summer. I want to continue our relationship but I can't live without him here with me/: We've known each other for over a year and would be together for about 10 months. I don't know what to do, should I wait or continue our LDR?
How does he feel about the break-up?
It takes two to have a LDR, and enough trust and faith to carry it through a year. I think if your willing to wait for him until next summer, then don’t let him go ( as in break up) but if you just need some time for your self, then take that time. I know it may seem hard but distance is a minimal factor in a LDR, you have to think about yourself, if it’s too hard on you, then stop. Take a breather.
