Someone made a really negative comment today about my being in a long distance relationship. When I said I haven’t seen my boyfriend in over a year she was like “how do you even know if you like being with each other if you’ve only spent a couple days together here and there?” I smiled and shrugged it off but now I can think of so many things I should have said. Long distance relationships are hard, but also extremely rewarding. I know my boyfriend better than anyone else, probably better than I know myself. Relationships aren’t always about the physical stuff and being together constantly. I don’t need to be with my boyfriend all the time to know that I love him and want to be with him. Not to mention I’ve known him since I was 8 years old, and we’re separated by circumstances neither of us can change right now. I hate that she made me feel like my relationship isn’t valid or something.
