What flashes in your mind, when you hear “Long distance relationship”? I bet it is of-course the distance fought by endless texting, frequent calls and late night video calls, being on virtual dates, watching movies while video calling, lacking the physical contact, endless tears and somehow just full filling your craving for your better half. Well, I can assure you, that’s exactly how it is!
But, there is a lot more to it!
The thing is, in the beginning both of us didn’t want to be in a “long distance relationship” because he already had a wretched experience with it and I could never see myself in a relationship like this. But you know what they say, “you fall in love in the most unexpected of places at the most unexpected time”. With us it wasn’t just love. It was a connection. A beautiful bond between our souls. One of the reasons behind our importance to the phrase “I feel you” rather than just “I love you.”
What we want to tell you is how you shouldn’t be afraid to take a leap of faith into this magical pond of the long distance relationship. As I mentioned above, there is going to be this pain of not being physically together but hey, this is your new dream that you have to work on. And you never know the kind of fascinating ideas you both can come up with, to make that dream come true. You will also find out how ingenious and creative you can be to surprise your significant other.
And the meetings – I know they are not that frequent. But aren’t they magical? Aren’t they beautiful? Aren’t these the happiest time of your life?
So if you are questioning yourself if you should “give it a try”, it is not something you try. Better ask yourself if you really love him or her.
In the end, its all about…
Struggle. Understanding. Faith. Love.
