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!

He leaves in three days….
I don’t want to eat, sleep, or even breathe another second away.
Every time that I think about him going back home I want to cry. I have never had to go through this before.
I have never had to say goodbye. I don’t want to.
I will not.
I just can’t….
I can’t go from falling in love with someone so amazing and then having to let him go back home.

This hurts so bad…

"

"

It’s the way he kisses me
Hugs, tickles, and kisses my children on the cheek.
How he gives my grandmother hugs as if she’s his.
How he feels completely at home when at my mothers.
How patient he is with me when I’m silently angry.
How he knows how to make me smile when I don’t want to.
How he always does the dishes after I make a meal.
How he thanks and praises me for any meal I make.
How he makes me clean with him so my home stays clean.
How he makes me want to get out of my house and do absolutely anything with my children and him by my sides.
How he holds my hand and makes me feel closer to Christ when at church.
How he talks about me on his facebook, and never regardless of how wild I look at times, hides me.
How he introduces me and speaks of me to his family and friends.
How he’s made his friends like me, and I them.
How he has made me want to be a stepmother to his only son.
How he doesn’t care about the distance, and wants to make this work regardless.
How he wants to move here whether with me or right next door.
How he already knows he wants a future with me, and is never shy about talking about our potential future together with my family.
How respectful he is to his elders.
How he sounds with his Southern accent.
How he is with his Southern manners.
How he slowly wakes up and a smile slowly shows up on his face when he sees me.
How supportive he has been while I have been sick.
How he has so much faith in me.
How secure he is with our relationship.
How easy it was for him to let other ladies know without me saying a word that I was uncomfortable with them.
How patient he’s been with me even though I’m going through a divorce.
How much he enjoys being around my family, and already knows he’s part of it.
How he knows how I feel at times without me saying a word.
How he and I have nearly everything in common.
How he told me that he loved me first.
How his eyes told me that he truly loved me when he said it.

I love this man.
And it breaks my heart that I have to see him go back home.
I don’t want him to.
I only have one more day…
I’m not ready.
I don’t want him to go but I know he has to…
I just can’t believe it’s been two weeks.
I am not ready to say goodbye
I’ve cried, he’s cried…
He is that part of me that has been missing.
I KNOW God made him for me, and I for him.
I hate this distance, I’m not ready for him to go…
I just can’t..

"I feel so hurt….
We just dropped him off.
No more kisses, no more looking deep into his eyes.
I can’t wake up to his face.
I can’t scratch his beard….
I feel so lost… "

"I hate long distance relationships. I hope they all burn. Stupid distance… (Not really but I hate the distance. I HATE the distance!) "
