Hi guys! This is me and my boyfriend. He is from finland and i am from brazil.. on december 22nd, we met for the first time ever. It was just so amazing and so special.. he was shaking so much, you could really tell that he was more nervous than i! We spent 2 amazing weeks together, went on a trip to Rio de Janeiro with my mom and stepfather, unfortunately, when we were heading back to my house, he got sick and we had to go to the hospital a couple times. Anyways, he met all of my family.. literally all of them, even my brother and my father, how crazy! Everyone LOVED him and saw what an amazing man he is. We spent the christmas and new year together too, and what else can i say? Those were the best weeks of my life, i cant deny it! It just made me even more sure that he is the one for me. Since the first day we met, we have been through a lot of things.. i mean, a reeeally lot of things. But here we are! Stronger than ever =) Now he is back to Suomi and tomorrow, 2 days after he got home, he will go to army :( We are pretty down because of it, especially me. We got to know that he can only use his phone at night and in the first weeks, he wont have much free time.. so that means we will talk a lot less than what we used to talk. What is really making my heart sink is that i was so used to have him by my side for these two weeks and now a couple days after he is home, he has to leave and we wont talk much =( How am i supposed to easily get used to that? Well, i wont! These first weeks are gonna be hard and this army period is prolly gonna be the hardest we have been so far. But i will stay strong, i will keep on fighting. He is the love of my life and none of this can bring us down! We can only hope for the best, that he will stay a short period of time in army and finally be able to come see me again.. no matter the time he has to stay there, i will wait, patiently wait for him, because he is worth it. I have never been able to look at someone the way i look at him, never been able to love someone the way i love him. By the way, i wrote this because i am feeling miserable right now, he is leaving tomorrow and i had to get things off of my chest. Nobody is gonna read it anyways. Cya babe love, when you get to read this, just know that i love you to death and i am gonna miss you like crazy (you already know it). Rakastan sua tooooosi paljon, ruipelo ♥ (IF SOMEONE HAS SOME ADVICE FOR ME ON HOW TO DEAL WITH IT, PLEASE, I NEED THEM MORE THAN ANYTHING RIGHT NOW! I HAVE BEEN CRYING SINCE THE DAY HE LEFT BRAZIL :(
You might be wondering why the title says “14 Years and Counting” and to stop your curiosity, I will tell you the story of Kortney and Shawn.
When we were 4 years old we met each other when we were living in Maine. We were best friends from the start. We did everything together. When we were 6 he moved away and I was devastated. For years I wondered where this boy had gone and when we were 14 I found him on Facebook. I decided to message him and we reconnected instantly. I knew at that moment he was going to be a big part of my life.
For 4 years we talked on and off and for a long period of time we just stopped talking. One late night in November I sent him a message just saying hello and since that night we have been talking nonstop. About a month later we stayed on the phone for 4 hours and at 1 AM he asked me to be his girlfriend and I said yes (of course)!
Now you might be wondering how this has anything to do with the theme of this blog; we live 17 hours from each other - he in Missouri, I in Maryland and we haven’t seen each other since we were 6, but that doesn’t stop us! I have been in love with this boy since the day I met him, even if I didn’t know it at that time and I have no doubt in my mind that we will be together for a very long time.
I knew 4 years ago he was the one for me, but that wasn’t God’s plan for us. He set us up with people and put us in situations that helped us learn and grow and mature. That late night in November I was compelled to write him. I later found out from Shawn that that night he was going through a lot and he just needed someone to talk to - I was the one that messaged him. God placed us in each others lives at the moment when He knew we needed each other most. He knows exactly what he is doing and I know He has more plans for us in the future.
And well, that is the story of Kortney and Shawn <3.
My boyfriend is in the Marines. We have known each other for 2 years but didn’t talk much. We finally talked again when we were both in rough relationships. One thing led to another and we started talking everyday. We decided to become official in December when he came home for Christmas leave but decided we couldn’t and started dating 5/21/12. I didn’t see him until August and I haven’t seen him since. I don’t know when I will see him next and it sucks so badly. I miss falling asleep in his arms and feeling his sweet, soft kisses. But I can’t wait until next time because when he comes home we are going to get engaged. We are getting close to our 6 month mark but we both know we want to be with each other forever. I can’t wait till the day I say “I do” and never have to cry myself to sleep unless he gets deployed. I know no matter what this man is the one who has my heart. I have never felt this way about any man before and I thank God every day I was blessed to have him in my life.
I wonder how many people are nervous to see MTV’s new show CATFISH. I just hope that my relationship does not end up horrible like some of them.
My girlfriend (who was my LDR but we have since moved in) wrote this and I thought it’d be good for other LDRs to read it as well. :)
Its nice that she is being so honest, but dont let someone elses experience diminish your hope of being together. Darrell and I have been living together for a month now, and I have a job, i drove my car here, I see him all the time, and I speak to my family almost every day. Living together is different than taking trips, but you have to be prepared for what might come with leaving your home and making one with someone else. It isnt always easy, but it is worth it.
My name is Jasmine; 16 years of age, living in PA, still in high school. I’m pansexual. Not many people understand me very well, or what pansexuality even means, so I sum it up into this one little phrase: I date for hearts, not parts. I fall in love with someone for who they are, regardless of gender and/or looks. This is my story of how I met my girlfriend and how things are doing as of now.
My girlfriend’s name is Rachel; 20 years of age, attends college. Lives in Idaho, pansexual as well. I first met her through an art site I visited often, named deviantART. To be honest, when I first did meet her, I did not expect us to get in a relationship. I was a huge Drawn to Life fanatic and still am, but I ran into her because she was the first, and only, Bendy roleplayer from Foster’s Home for Imaginary Friends, which she was a huge fan of. I got the skype of this “Bendy”, and would talk to him daily. This routine started on September 18, 2011.
Around this time when I started talking very often to Bendy, I was already in a rather struggling relationship. It was kind of odd, actually, because later on when I discovered this was really a female and her name was Rachel, I got to know her very well, and found out she was in a rather struggling relationship as well, with another female such as I was. I could get into details here and give names of how both of our relationships ended, but let’s just say Rachel’s ex was minorly f***ed up in the head, as mine was as well. It took us a while for us to realize that. I got Rachel to understand that what she was in was not a real relationship, and she helped me break up with my ex girlfriend since I was having problems doing so. Just a note to take mind of, her ex was abusive.
About a month or two later, her and I became really close. BFFLs, we would call each other; Best Friends For Life. Throughout my tight friendship with her, I told her about my addiction to the game series titled Drawn to Life, and she began to admire it as well. There was an endless list of what I had in common with her. When it hit January of the following year, I realized I felt more for her than just friendship, and that I was in love with her. I didn’t hesitate to let Rachel know about my feelings, either, and told her shortly after I realized them. She didn’t exactly feel the same, until around June 30, 2012, when our relationship began.
I’ve never been in such a romantic relationship as the one I’m in now, and probably the best one I could ever ask for. Rachel, if you’re reading this, I love you so much. I don’t think I could ever live the same if I ever lost you. To this very day, we may still be very far apart, but just you wait hun for those four planned years to pass and we will see each other in person eventually. Until then, we will continue to talk to each other all day every day through Skype.
Anyone out there who may be in the same situation of having a relationship with someone else in a different timezone, and both of you are the same gender, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT listen to what others say! Rachel and I have both been called pedos, lesbians, and so much more due to us both being female and her being older than 18 while I’m still a minor, but we don’t let it get to us because it is only a four year difference, which many people do not understand. Love someone for who they are and never give up on them if you really love them as much as I love my own girlfriend, because I never plan to end my relationship with her. Stay brave and be yourself. Ignore the insults and follow your heart. The long wait will be worth it in the end, and that is a promise.
Andy and I would have never met had it not been for tumblr. We first started talking because he followed me on tumblr and critiqued some of my political positions. We’re both transgender and both Marxists, so it gave us a lot to talk about. Conversation flowed pretty easily back and forth, and it soon because a lot more personal than just opinions on State and Revolution. We started to develop feelings for each other, which I expressed through a series of terribly written poems on tumblr. At first he said nothing about them, so I emailed him to ask if he’s seen them. From then on, we were a couple. We have so many interests in common, and our personalities and needs and wants fit perfectly together. We are, in the opinion of anyone whose ever met either of us, a perfect couple.
The reason I say we would have never met is because we come from very different worlds: I’m from an upper-middle class family in New Jersey, he’s working class from Georgia. I was more of a pseudo-Marixst before I met him; he’s radicalized me immensely and taught me a lot. We’re now both members of the same Marxist tendency but we still might not have ever met, because of money issues.
That being said, we have met (digitally) and are going to meet in person in a little over a month at the national congress of the Marxist tendency we’re both part of. Right now I’m going to college in Canada but I’m traveling down to the US to be able to see him. I’ll submit pictures or something after then, but I’m extremely excited to be able to see him. It’s really frustrating when he’s hurting or needs help and I can’t do anything about it except try to comfort him over the phone. I feel really useless sometimes because of the distance, but if we can stay strong while so far apart our relationship will have no doubt of integrity when we are together.
So Jayprelle is a combination of Joshua, and April. We’ve only been dating since August 31, 2012, but the two of us started off as best friends and gradually our relationship blossomed over the past ten almost eleven months. But you know the saying goes, “best friends make the best lovers,” and I agree with this statement. If you love an individual with as much fervour as you claim you do, you must be willing to put in the effort and dedication necessary to strengthen your relationship. We had our iffy moments in the past but we both know that everything and anything is possible with God, love, faith and hope. We’re separated by 1226 miles. I’m in Vancouver, and he’s in Irvine. We may be separated by a country border, and two state borders, but our love is stronger than these obstacles combined. And with the support of our parents and ultimately God, we were able to meet each other (after ten months of waiting) on August 27, 2012. We’re here for anyone who needs a listening ear, or for some words of wisdom.
With ♥, Jayprelle.
