survivedthedistance

After two years, I met someone for the first time. The same day I met them for the first time, I closed the distance. The same day I closed the distance, I got married.

Now doing such a crazy thing has consequences, as I soon learned.

From catfishing, amongst other things.

But I still run this page for LDRs, to protest against Cyber bullying,and help heal from LDR breakups.

I also write poetry about my boyfriend. So unless the quotes are stated as someone else's, they are mine.

My experience was proof that with hard work and commitment, you can close the distance with your significant other. And the other people I share are too.

My heart currently resides in Alabama. We try to visit each other often and have been dating for several months now.

I share my new experience with you. And look forward to you sharing with me yours.

I also try to do my best to give ordinary relationship advice as well.

*No content is of my own unless stated so*

ALL are welcome!

Would you like to work together?

Please inbox me if you're interested in helping each other out or being listed on my page!

Additional Stuff

I’m thinking about starting to document my LDR experience. Via blogspot and Youtube. Would you guys follow me if I did?

Of course not going into my PERSONAL fights or anything like that, but how I may get into an argument and how we handled it. 
How we went about introducing family and friends to each other. 
Pictures, Videos, etc?
Even answering questions and hosting contests again like I used to?
I already have a facebook page, and youtube vlogs, but I haven’t kept up with doing the videos on a regular basis. 
Let me know what you guys think!

"I want to love you mentally, physically, and unconditionally for eternity. "

"I hate sitting here crying. Wishing that time would speed up so I can be in your arms. Especially not knowing the day, hour, or month that you will be here. "

What an amazing summer it has been…. 
I’ve gained a better sense of self-worth, self love and appreciation for the milestones my babies have achieved. 


I’ve gained a 6 month old God-daughter that loves me unconditionally as I do her, and even chose me to play with every time over my my boyfriend, her Godfather. lol

I’ve gained a new family. I’ve gained new friends. A second home.
I’ve learned to trust more in what God has in store for me, and look at every obstacle that is put in my path to happiness as a plot twist in my life story. 

I can honestly say without a doubt that I am happy. And that I only want to be a better person. I have the right people in my life to do that. And I’ve been making a vast amount of changes in the past few months. 

My life is perfect in the midst of my imperfections.

My loves and I at #church! (at Crosspoint Church [thecrosspoint.com])

I met my boyfriend off of facebook back in April. I was cheated on and left to waste by an ex husband. I swore off being with another man and having another online relationship.

…A few weeks later here comes this guy on this group asking about what women think about men who cook. And the rest is history. We went from talking about food, to our children, to football.

Things lead to another and we’re together. Not long afterwards he came to meet me in person and spent two beautiful weeks with my family and myself. We all absolutely loved him. When he left to go back home, I hardly wanted to function.

Now here we are and THIS time I went to go visit him and his friends and family. Never have I felt so welcomed. His friends taught me how to play beer pong. My boyfriend helped me learn to drive. I got to meet my godbaby and stuffed with loads of delicious food even though I was dieting. lol

This time when we parted, I was a wreck. I cried nonstop…and I still can’t stop crying…My family has even noticed. I am truly depressed not being back there with him. I’m in love.

So with that I’d like to announce that I was given a ring pop (I really wanted to be proposed with one lol) and am engaged. No date set in mind just yet, but I have been told by many supportive family and friends that after going through the heartbreak of a divorce, sometimes when that special someone comes into your life..You just know.

So I may not have been looking for love, but I found a friend who in turn was the man that I truly needed and wanted in my life.

We laid down in the bed of the #truck with a blanket covering us and #cuddled and occasionally talked the entire way back home. Something I never did before and something I’ll never forget. I truly #love this man. #ldr #longdistance #longdistancerelationships #swirllife #countryboy (at Bamahenge)

I miss you so much…..
