Many people out there experience the struggle of being in a long distance relationship. Whether your significant other goes away for business, is in the army, or away for school, no matter the reason, you still fight for the one you care about. At the end of the day, you two are happy together and that's all that matters.
1. Listening to other people complain about not seeing their boyfriend or girlfriend.
When I hear others talk about not seeing their significant other for a whopping two days, I can't help but get angry. Like, wow. A whole two days. It's been almost two weeks for me.
2. Trusting them can be difficult at times.
It takes a major amount of trust and respect when your person tells you that they are going out. Especially when you know a possible old crush or ex might be there.
3. Skype dates become your nightly ritual.
You have to explain to your friends why you would rather stay at home than go out yet again to BDubs. Anytime with my boy is precious, and I wouldn't trade it for anything.
4. Hugs can't happen when you need them the most.
Being two and a half hours away, we aren't able to drive to each others' house immediately and give the comfort we both need.
5. Seeing each other is pretty cool.
When you do finally get to see each other, you never want to leave their side. Saying goodbye is very difficult, especially because you don't when you'll see each other next.
6. Planning visits with each other becomes very complicated.
Between working, counseling, and vacations, summertime planning becomes super aggravating. But the struggle is worth it, even if we only get to see each other for a few hours.
7. The emotional connection is real.
You know that the emotions you feel toward each other are real. It gives you a sense of security knowing someone is working so hard to be in a steady relationship with you.
