ldr stuff

The scariest thing about distance is you don’t know if they’ll miss you or forget about you.
—  Nicholas Sparks

The biggest struggle of being in an LDR is that you’re going around and you see and hear people of things that remind you of them. Like, you see someone that looks like your significant other and it hurts because no matter how much you want it to be them, it’s not them. Sometimes you’ll see something and wish they were there to experience it with you, having an awesome day you can brag about together. There are days when you just want them right there next to you. Just to feel the affection, to get a hug, a kiss on the cheek, on the lip even just leaning up against their arm. Sometimes you’re crying so hard and no one can comfort you like you want them to because no one else can comfort you except for that person that is miles and miles away from you. All you can do is text and have phone calls, don’t get me wrong it’s great, but I am counting down the days until I can see you. Like really see you, not just a visit that lasts for just a short time, actually be with you and spend the rest of my life with you. Not sitting in the corner of the room crying over songs and things that remind you of them. Loathing all the couples that are so happy together and being disappointed by the ones that do not understand how lucky they are to be with someone but abuse that pleasure and pure honesty a relationship should have. Call me a dreamer sure, but you know I’m right.

I hate the feeling when you have to say goodbye to someone you want to spend every minute with.

You make me feel like maybe I’m not as bad as I think

Have you ever stayed up late with someone texting or chatting and known as the hours ticked by that you’d be ridiculously tired in the morning but it didnt matter because it was really fun and totally worth losing sleep over just to laugh with someone and enjoy their company maybe and then the next day you keep tiredly recalling how much fun it was while you’re falling asleep in class and that makes it not so bad that you’re tired anymore.
Long distance relationships are hard, but they’re also incredible. If you can love, trust, respect, and support each other from a distance then you’ll be unstoppable once you’re physically together.
