I’ve been in a long distance relationship for just over a year now, I met my boyfriend over the internet which some people disagree on but I wouldn’t change it for the world. Anyway, we spoke on the phone every night for near enough 2-3 hours and started to Skype 2 months ago. We always spoke about meeting but I was scared that I wouldn’t be what he expected in person and I’d rather him love me for who I was over the phone then hate me for who I am in person. I finally found the guts to meet him and fuck me, I have never felt so happy in my life! He came down here for the weekend recently and it really was the best weekend I could have wished for, It was perfect! But saying goodbye really was the hardest fucking thing and I found myself just laying in bed crying for hours because I went from feeling on top of the world to a sack of shit without him and if anyone tells you long distance is easy, they’re lying. It’s so hard going from having them with you 24/7, being able to kiss or hold their hand or just do any of that couple-y shit to having nothing and feeling lonely. Honestly, I’m fucking scared of what’s to come, I don’t want him to give up if we don’t meet enough because it would hurt. Its only 2 weeks until I go down to wales to stay in a cottage with him for a long weekend but waiting and waiting feels like years, it really is a horrible feeling. To me, long distance relationships are so much more serious than normal relationships. It takes a lot to be able to trust that he won’t cheat or lie to me, that’s what makes us so much more serious. I don’t see why long distance relationships bother people so much, I get that you want someone to do all the couple-y things with all the time but why should it matter so much? Having the one thing that means the most to you, being yours, should be enough.
