There are many downsides to long distance relationships–I don’t think I need to reiterate this list since they’re fairly obvious. But one positive thing for LDRs is when you finally get to see the person.
You know the saying “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”? I don’t know if that’s necessarily true. I think I would grow just as fond of J if we were living in the same town as we do being apart, but I do turn into a different person after two long, cold months of not seeing each other. For example,
Aww, I used to be in an LDR with my last boyfriend. I totally know what you mean about becoming a giddy fool the closer the time comes to seeing your love. It’s okay, though, be as giddy as you want!! You’ve earned it.
Have a great weekend! :D
So excited for you guys – hope you have a fabulous weekend together!
Yay! Happy Friday!
I get so giddy with guys, too. And I’m not even IN a relationship! ;)
Have a great weekend. And try to see Avatar in 3D, it is so much better. Yes, I’ve seen it in 2D!
My husband and I started out in a long-distance relationship. We did it for about a year & a half before he moved out to be with me. But then he couldn’t find a job here, so every couple of months he would go back home to work for his dad so he could have some kind of income, then he’d come back. So we still continued long-distance after he moved here. Then this past winter we got married and he joined the military (because he couldn’t find steady work) and has been in bootcamp for almost 2 months (I get to see him graduate next week!).
We can’t seem to get away from the long-distance thing, which has worked for us. I miss him terribly when he’s gone and I can’t wait for us to be a “real” couple that can go on dates and stuff. I’m a firm believer in what doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger. We trust each other completely and we’ve had to learn how to communicate better than most couples because we can’t be with each other all the time and often times our main form of contanct is via phone or emails.
When we first did the LDR thing, we decided to have “date” nights. We’d both go rent a movie or pick one we both own and then we’d put it on our TVs and watch the movie together over the phone. I know it sounds crazy, but that’s how we made our relationship work. We even started reading to each other over the phone and still to this day when we are together, he will read to me in bed (I love it when he does that because it makes me fall asleep!).
Sorry this comment is so long, I just really relate to other people in LDRs. Enjoy your time with J (my husband is a J too) this weekend! =)
Yeah, so my wife and I were LDR for about 4 months while dating. It was tough but I took the time to learn more about myself and it ended up being great. Once we were together in the same city, our relationship deepened really quickly. It was great!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend with bf! I’ve seen both Avatar (2x in 3D) and Valentine’s Day! Both are awesome movies, I did prefer Avatar, but both are wonderful! :)
I was in an LDR with a couple of my old boyfriends. Definitely tough, but so true that absence makes the heart grow fonder!
I hope you had a wonderful weekend with J!
