Why Long Distance Relationships Suck


Why Long Distance Relationships Suck
I thought long distance relationships were behind me. The heart break of this one got me good.

Go ahead....rip my heart out.  Throw it on the floor and stamp all over it!

A long distance relationship is excruciating.  This time when I left, I cried all the way to the airport.  Leaving him breaks my heart.  It feels as bad as any breakup I have experienced. 


I swore I would never do this to myself again.  I learned my lesson back in college with the boys that would promise you the moon and then disappear into the distance between us.

This time though, I took a chance.   I opened myself up in a new way and we took our relationship to a new level.  Even though we have known each other for two years now I am still in love.  Absolutely adorable with a quick wit and amazing energy, he keeps me engaged and entertained when we are together and that keeps me going while we are apart.

He is a natural flirt and even though he easily attracts the attention of all the women in the room, I am strangely not jealous.   He honestly doesn't see how attractive he is.

Just thinking about him puts a smile on my face. He has the best laugh and even though he gets a bit moody from time to time, he recovers quickly.  He lets insults and offenses get to him for a couple of scary moments, he has a bit of a temper, but he never holds a grudge and before you know it, he is happy again.

While he is a little controlling, as long as I communicate clearly and simply, he is always willing to negotiate our differences. I think it is his innocence that impresses me the most.  He has an uncanny ability to access his playful side.  He is a sweet thoughtful guy most of the time.  I miss him already.

He does still live with his family and that is a bit problematic. Sometimes he is too busy to speak to me when I call and I am disappointed but when he does take time to connect with me, I am done in.

It is definitely worth waiting for. I am not sure when we will be seeing one another again.  I hope it is not too long.  My heart aches for him when we are not together.  I am lucky that my husband is an understanding man.
