    Hi there,I've joined in hopes to find some people to relate with, because I feel that not many people understand what I go through. I am a US native, and my boyfriend of a year and a half is from the UK. We met at a job in my hometown and have been long distance dating ever since. We've spent the last 3 months together and he has just left to go back home, and I will not see him until the...

    Quick update??

    We had our talk about if we're gonna take the plunge doing this LDR thing for real. He said he wants to do it, he wants to stick together, beat the distance and have me moved in with him by this time next year. I'm almost scared to hope tho...a year is a long time for something to go wrong, and neither of us have ever done an LDR with this much distance before. Plus, our work schedules are going...

    I'm laying in bed crying because I feel so pathetic. I literally have to beg my boyfriend to call me and he still doesn't. I don't understand how there isn't even 1 minute in the day where he can take the time to just let me here his voice. I've communicated to him that I would like to FaceTime or talk on the phone more but he completely ignored that I guess. Yesterday I suggested we FaceTime...

    Time running out

    I have three weekends left with my bf before he moves even farther away than he already is, and it's really making me think. Last weekend, he instagted "the talk" about if we're going to really do this LDR thing, with me moving in with him next summer. I told him we both need to take a couple weeks to really think this out, so no decisions were made that day, but he seems to want to do it. I'm...

    First LDR

    I came across this site a while ago and didn't think I'd need it, but here I am. This is my first long distance and super unconventional relationship I've ever been in. Let's call him Stryker. I met Stryker online accidentally. It was on this stupid game and all I wanted to do was trade furniture, but I was immediately drawn to him from the minute he said hi. We began to talk outside of the game...

    Hello-This is my first time on this site and first joining anything like this but after several "serious" relationships, including a failed marriage, I feel like my thoughts on how to have a successful relationship are dumb! HA!Last fall my team from all over the country were in my city as a somewhat of a team building week. This woman who I'm now involved with got my attention from the very...

    LONG DISTANCE

    So I'm dealing with my second long distance relationship. I'm really trying to trust him and putting all my trust into him. But there's little things that make me think that there's something else going on. He hides his phone away from me when we're together (which it's none of my business), always on his phone, and tonight he decides to put me on mute while we're facetimeing when he's talking to...
  • Ive wrote on this before about me being in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend of 5 months. This week he came clean about cheating on me! He seems genuinely sorry about it? I feel like i could forgive him with time.any advice?

I feel like everyday I get more and more sad and I dont know what to do. He plays basketball so he's always really busy with that or schoolwork so we barely talk to eachother. Before he left he promised we would facetime everyday but im lucky to get a 10...

    Unique situation

    3
    I feel bad even writing in this forum since my boyfriend will be back after 4 months and won't leave again but I needed somewhere to turn. My boyfriend left two months ago for work and when he left I thought I was okay but as time went by it seemed to move slower, and slower. I'm becoming more emotional as each week goes by. We have very limited contact as he doesn't have Internet or cellphone...
