It's been a long distance relationship for 3+ years! (and still is) I know it says a lot about our relationship, that we have lasting power, that we would do anything for each other, etc....but it's just so freaking hard ALL. THE. TIME.
All of my friends and co-workers get to see their significant others/spouses every day, or maybe even every other day. I would kill for even just once a week! And I talk to people who have done this for a semester or two in college, and they say, "Yeah, I know how you feel." Um, I'm not really sure that you do unless you've done it for three full years. It is not easy.
Now don't get me wrong... These past three years have been filled with love, happiness, and all the great things of a loving relationship. I love him more than anything and truly can't see myself with anyone else and I know that he feels the same.
But, MAN! Sometimes I just want to scream because I just want to see him in person and get a hug and NOT talk on the phone for a day. Sometimes it feels like I have an every other weekend boyfriend when others have a every day boyfriend and it's just not fair!
Not to mention the fact that our main communication is our cell phones. It sucked all the fun of using cell phones. I can't tell you how many times we have to clarify what the other person said because we can't hear, or we're distracted, etc. Or how many times we just don't have all that much to say on the phone because you feel like you're under pressure to say something because again, this is the only form of communication that we will have today. And yet it's weird, because in person stuff like that doesn't happen. But when you're on the phone, and there's silence...it's just so daunting! Like that silence MUST be filled with talk otherwise this phone conversation is pointless. Who wants to hear breathing on the phone anyways?
Ok, I'm done. I could actually go on and on, but I don't want to seem too down on this. I love my boyfriend and I love our relationship. I just feel myself becoming soooo impatient waiting for a short distance relationship. Be ready people, because when that day comes I will be shouting for joy and running all over the place with relief! :)
