Its you.
And it always will be you.
It always has been you.
Your smile.
Your teeth.
Your eyes.
You are the only person to ever exist to take my breath away, or make me laugh the way you do.
You get me.
You understand me sometimes more than I understand myself.
Your love over flows and sometimes I don’t know what to do with it all.
But I’d never complain about that.
All I want is you.
It will be you until the oceans run dry.
It will be you until the stars burn out.
It will be you until my lungs breathe stale air.
It will be you until my eyes close for the last time.
—  A 60 day love letter
Never in a million years did I think I’d find someone so utterly and completely perfect, someone who could make me happier than I ever dreamed I could be, someone that would touch my world so profoundly and just give me a whole new reason to breathe. But then I found you and realized that everything I anticipated you to be doesn’t even compare to who you are.
Long distance relationships suck, they really do, but they’re so beneficial. I’ve learned to appreciate every text, kiss, phone call, high five, hug, nap, skype conversation, snapchat, etc. I’ve learned to save up my money and to work hard for it. I’ve learned that the best things really do come to those who wait. I’ve learned to cherish my boyfriend on a whole new level. I’ve learned to control my emotions and to not fight over bullshit. I’ve learned to love myself. I’ve learned that my presence can change my boyfriend’s day. I’ve learned my boyfriend loves to be surprised with gifts. I’ve learned that the boy I’m waiting for is the one I want to spend forever with. As tiring as a LDR is, I would have never learned any of this if it wasn’t for distance.
—  Thank you, distance. (My personal thoughts)
One day we will wake up side-by-side and all those little things you do during the day (getting ready for work, going to the store, taking walks, doing laundry) you will never have to do those things alone ever again. I will be by your side and you will be by mine and everything will be right.
long distance is better than reality.
there’s no judging.
you learn someone’s PERSONALITY before you learn their looks.
bc you love their personality so much, you fall harder for the acne sprinkled on their jaw or the stray hair sticking out from their scalp.
i mean, yeah, no touching sucks.
no hand holds, no arms snaking around your waist out of nowhere, no random cheek kisses when you turn your head to look at something, no hands running through your hair when your frustrated…
but you have the comfort of knowing that miles away, someone loves you so dearly, that they don’t even look at the people they go to school with anymore. they don’t try to hook up with the girl next door or the quarterback.
and the thing that keeps your relationship alive is the thought of one day seeing each other. that thought keeps you up at night.
you fantasize meeting them at the airport on a summer evening and you can almost feel the hot tears streaming down your cheeks.
you lay in bed and stare at the ceiling, seeing them walk towards you as your out with your friends, completwly oblivious to their plan. you can almost feel your mouth go dry.
i know for many, long distance isn’t ideal bc you may never meet that person. they might actually find someone who they can hold at night. you may even find someone. they could break under the pressure of being so far apart that they say they just can’t do it anymore.
but i can guarentee you, you might feel more love in one of those relationships. you’re not taken for granted. you’re so cherished and loved and kept in the little box next to their heart and under the key they wear around their neck bc they wish they could see you and hold you and wipe your tears when you cry, not just virtually do it. they know they won’t see you for a long time, if ever, but they still keep you so close, when in reality, your lover might not even text you that day bc they know that they’ll just see you tomorrow at school next to the water fountain and never think twice about the 5 messages you sent asking where they are.
long distance is so so hard on your heart and it’s so so tough to say that you’re in love with someone who’s feet are in the Atlantic when you’re smelling the Pacific air when someone asks about your relationship status, but all you have to do is believe.
they can work. stop putting them down, stop putting down your friends. everyone has a chance at love, whether or not it’s through a 2am Skype call.
