How to stay in the honeymoon stage

1. Embrace the comfortable stage. Comfortable can be bad if you take each other for granted, but can be good if done right. Enjoy the little things like just hanging around doing nothing the whole day or even running errands together. 

2. Always make up after a fight. I’ve said it before, but some fights can be avoided. However, when it happens, always talk things out and make up with each other. This will make your relationship stronger for the future.

3. Express how you feel. This has a lot to do with trust and communication that is the foundation of your relationship. If you have a problem, say it. If you feel you really love them, let them know! The simple ‘I love you’ can mean a lot. 

4. Date night. This doesn’t have to be fancy, but sometimes it’s nice to do something special once in a while. For a list of date nights, look at my other post here.

5. Show your appreciation. This can be something as simple as complimenting them or thanking them for something they did. It can also be a sweet gesture like buying them their favorite drink or snack too!

6. Always celebrate the special days. No matter how long you’ve been together, it’s always nice to celebrate your anniversaries, birthdays, etc. For gift ideas, check out my post here.

7. Take some time to yourself. This one is something I always stress and is something you definitely have a lot of time for in a LDR. Growing on your own is good for you and your relationship. You can spend some time away while really enjoying the time you spend together.

I’m not one for asking for money, but this time it’s for something really important. My long distance boyfriend Kyle lost his father to cancer at 12 years old. August 26th, 2014 Kyle lost his mother to cancer as well. Kyle is 18 years old and has no parents and no close relatives to take him in. He was in college but do to his circumstances he can now no longer attend school. He has no money, and will soon have no where to live. Kyle is from England and I’m from Kentucky in the United States. He has been here to stay with my family and I twice now and we’ve been together for nearly 2 years. My family has grown to love Kyle just as much as I do and my mother is willing to let Kyle come live with us and actually wants him to. The problem is, due to finance problems, it would take an extremely long time to save up the amount of money needed to apply for a fiance visa as well as purchase a flight to get Kyle to America for good. My mom has started an online donation to try and hopefully raise some money to get Kyle here. I’m really praying that there are some people out there who believe in true love and miracles that would be willing to donate and help us accomplish our dream of living together and getting married. It would mean more than the world to me if people would help get this post out there to help Kyle and I out! If you could reblog this post as well as share the link to our GoFundMe campaign, I would be so grateful! Here is the link for those interested in donating or even simply sharing the link:

I would give anything to lay my head on his shoulder. My arm stretched across his chest. To be lulled to sleep by the sound of every sleepy breath that escapes his lips or the beat of his heart that has loved me for what is now 24 months. I want to feel the warmth of his skin against mine. Even if it is only for one night. I just need him.

The difficulties of a long distance relationship.
—  I know it’s nothing a plane ticket or a car ride couldn’t fix, but God, you don’t understand it unless you’ve been in it, unless you’ve felt it. It’s that feeling that hits your chest when you two finally say good night after listening to each other’s voices for the past few hours, and you’ll wonder why every time you say good night it feels like a good bye. It’s how even though you two just had a wonderful conversation your eyes start to fill up with tears because it’s a bittersweet feeling, because once they hang up, you’re alone again. Not just physically, but mentally, emotionally. You’re alone. It’s how a good morning text stands in for a good morning kiss and how a “what are you doing?” replaces hand holding. It’s how you two can’t help but talk about how every moment will be spent when you’re finally together, how a kiss will be more than just a kiss, how a hug is something that will last hours instead of seconds. It’s how you know that once you get to touch their skin it will be like touching the moon, and each little freckle will be your star to wish on, only yours. It’s how you will discover new galaxies in their laugh, how each little scar will be more than that, it will be a story you want to read, so you’ll trace your fingers across them like braille. You think of all this, all day, every day, every moment, even when you two are lost in conversation, you’ll think of it. And that’s the thing that keeps you hanging on, that keeps you going. The promise that every time you see the moon, you’re one step closer to seeing them soon. So you’ll close your weary eyes and dream of them in your arms. Once you awake there will be a message, “Good morning…” and your love shall be awakened again.
