Hi… My name is Dita and my beloved boyfriend lives 1082 km away from me.
I met Damar from Facebook then I realized that he is one of my friends in a church. Our first meeting was December 24, 2011 and from that moment, we are texting each other frequently. I love him so much and he also has the same feeling for me. That is unbelievable! He decided to choose me to be his only one on April 8, 2012 after both of us have a long conversation. Because we live 12 hours away, I only meet him once a month while he has a weekend off (he is a teacher). We have a plan that we will get married for two years later although we still should have a long distance marriage relationship. I don’t care… I love him that’s why I think that distance doesn’t matter for our relationship.
Tyler and I at our graduation after going to school together for 5 years and dating for 6 months. <3
Ty and I met in 9th grade. We were in a couple of the same classes and became good friends from there. When I started to fall for him, it was to my dismay when he was asked into a different relationship. and it would stay that way for 3 years. Over that three year period we stayed friends and talked a lot, but I basically gave up the thought that we were ever going to be together. I got in and out of relationships and he stayed in his. In September of 2011, our senior year of high school, he was finally single and so was I. We found out that we were in the same Calculus class and study hall and everything basically just progressed from there. Me being the unsuspecting that anything was going to come of us, we both fell for each other and started dating on December 12th of that year. This boy is my absolute best friend in the entire world. We’ve been through everything together and at a certain point during the summer, we were together every single day. That’s why it hit hard when I had to leave for Delhi, 130 miles away, to attend college on August 31st and had to leave him at home. The first week was the absolute hardest time of our lives and we weren’t sure what we were going to do. But we stuck through it and Tyler came to visit me after 2 weeks of not seeing each other. Now at this point we’ve been together for 9 months and we’re stronger than we ever have been before. We’ve got something incredibly special and I can’t imagine myself ever being apart from him. I love you. <3
My boyfriend and I used to hang out Every. Single. Day. But he joined the army, and will be gone for a total of 6 months. ..it’s almost been one month. It’s so hard going from everyday to nothing but a letter once a week. Not only am missing my boyfriend, I’m also missing my best friend. I can only wait and count down the days. It can’t come soon enough.
When people ask how we met, David always says “online.” Which is somewhat factual, but in actuality, we met coincidentally on Facebook because we were part of the same community service organization (Circle K International). He studied in San Diego, CA at the time, and I attended school in Geneseo, NY. We meet when I visited San Diego for a fundraiser, which is how we actually started talking.
When we really started talking (November 2011), I was extremely hesitant to start a relationship, especially being so far away. Different time zones, different lives and different histories made me all the more worried.
But you can’t say no to the one person who keeps you calm when no other person can. Six months later, I know there is never a day that I don’t appreciate saying yes to him asking me out. He is living proof of why taking a leap of faith is worth it, because I could never imagine my life without him by my side, both literally and spiritually.
Most recently, both of us traveled to New Orleans (for a convention) and expected to meet up once we were at the airport. To our coincidence, we found each other in an unexpected layover and was able to spend a chunk of time on the plane together. :) Little coincidences like that continue to bless our relationship and provide us with stories to tell our friends and family.
The most important part about my relationship with David is that we continue to encourage each other. David intends on pursuing pharmacy as a career, while I plan on applying to a PhD program soon. Now, while we are busier than ever before, we depend on each other more and more to keep our relationship grounded and passionate. He reminds me to sleep and eat when I’m stressed, and I remind him to keep his focus in his studies, even in the biggest of struggles.
Yes, long distanced relationships may be difficult, but when it works, it shines. When I see him on skype, or make plans to see him in real life, those are the moments that keep us going. He and I are reminded every day that these struggles are not liabilities to our relationship… instead, they make our relationship special, powerful and stronger than ever before.

Hi.I’m Michaela and this is my long distance love story.Jesse and I met on a internet site called Myyearbook.When we first met he was dating someone else.The more we talked I found that I was starting to like him.I hid my feelings for the simple fact that he was with someone else.I began to like him more and more and after struggling with what to do I finally confessed.To my surprise he liked me too.We started dating.We didn’t even question the distance.i live in Virginia and he lives in Michigan.Compared to a lot of people that is nothing but to us?It’s everything.We talked on and on about us meeting.Finally we both worked up the nerve to ask our parents about a summer trip to see each other.Our parents agreed.Eight months together and we were about to see each other for the first time.The trip up there was filled with butterflies and excitement.I was so nervous.The moment I saw him was amazing.We embraced with our parents standing around.It was amazing.For us it was awkward at first so our parents suggested we go for a walk.That’s all it took.I only spent two days with him.But those two days were the most amazing moments of my life.I have never smiled and laughed so much in my life.It felt so unreal.Like a dream.To be in his arms,to feel his touch and kiss.To fall asleep cuddled up to him.It was amazing.Perfect.He was everything I thought he would be and more.The hardest part was leaving him.It hurt so bad.I couldn’t stop crying.The only thing keeping me from not crying my days away from missing being with him is the fact that I know we will meet again soon.And that…is enough for me. <3
