long distance miss you quotes

It's awful missing someone and wishing they were there, by your side, but they're not. In those times, the best long-distance relationship quotes can express just how much you miss your partner while also offering you comfort in between seeing each other.

I've been in my fair share of long-distance relationships (or LDRs). They consist of Skype dates and awkward time differences. You never stop wishing your person could be there for you when times are tough.

Long-distance couples learn to become okay with phone calls and text messages when what you really want is to hold your partner in your arms and never let them go.

But you don't get that privilege in a long-distance relationship. Instead, you get fleeting moments and plans broken with "maybe" and "another time."

You plan to take trips to visit, and, for a brief moment, you're reminded of what it's like to be in a relationship when your partner can be there for you at the drop of a hat.

Long-distance relationships ensure each partner knows the other's value. You don't get to spend a whole lot of time with them, so, when you do, it's not spent arguing or fighting trivially. Time spent with your partner means listening and understanding to what they need.

You truly learn to value people when you can't see them every day, and these quotes come in handy when you're looking for the words to explain just how you feel.
