Not being able to hear his voice or smell him even rub his head before I fell asleep. Being able to wake up in the morning to him making me coffee and giving me good morning kisses. How do I deal with being 17 hours away from him 7000 miles away. How do I comfort myself? I sit...

    It's been 7 weeks since he left. Doesn't sound long when I say it out long but it sure does feel like a lifetime. Like any relationship we have our ups and downs. Recently it has been amazing, we developed a routine that worked for both of us. He even surprised me with a flower delivery. I thought we were finally on the right track. Then all of a sudden I receive an angry message suggesting we...

    Help wanted

    So in about 6 months I'll be in a position where I can relocate to be with my bf. My question is: does anyone have any tips for applying for out of state jobs? I can imagine that employers would sway more toward local applicants, so what can I do to make my resume or cover letter stick out? What do I say if they ask me why I'm looking to relocate?? It probably doesn't sound too professional to...

    Parting again.

    My boyfriend came to visit over the weekend from college and just left to go back about an hour ago. This was our first visit since we started long distance. We had a great weekend and I loved seeing him but I completely broke down when he left. I don't want to be an emotional mess every time we visit eachother and have to leave again but the separation is just so hard. How do you guys deal with...

    Good evening. I'm in need of some major support on this subject. My boyfriend and I will have been in our LDR 2 years this November. He lives in New Jersey and I live in Memphis. I just spent a week with him last week to celebrate my 28th birthday. We also have made consistent visits to each other every 2-3 months since May 2015.

    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...

    3 am

    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...
