What It’s like to be in a Long Distance Relationship

Being in love with someone who is far away can be tough. But when you know that you are with the one, even the toughest times are worth it.

Being in a long distance relationship means…


Contantly missing your loved one



Birthdays and holidays are especially hard

Dealing with crazy time zone differences

Poor internet connection drives you insane on the regular

skype issues


But you know it’s worth it, because talking to them makes your day

Up all night

Sometimes, random things trigger up memories of them that make you smile (or cry…)

Flying out to see each other is not always easy

But when you manage to put together a plan, it’s the most exciting thing in the world!

Counting down the days becomes your favourite activity and gives you a daily jolt of happiness

When you finally see that specially someone, no words can describe your joy!

Everything is so comfortable that sometimes it feels like you were never apart


The night before they have to leave again is the toughest…

But it’s ok because you know that distance means so little when someone means so much

Until you see each other again soon!
