Long Distance Relationship
I am a girl who is very passionate about love and romance and everything to do with the sort. It is something that drives me and gives me motive to smile. For the majority of my life, however, I have found that to find a meaningful relationship that binds you to it with every single part of your existance is very rare. But I found it this year on the internet. His name was Aaron, and he was lerking in a chat room, which is where I had the pleasure to find him one late evening, and I have never been the same since. I was bored and so I found myself trying to occupy my time on the computer.
I was skeptical of of people that I came across on-line previously and so tonight I thought would be no different. I simply would start up a conversation and I would watch the time pass me by. So I went into a room and watched people talk about nonsense and tell their age and other things about themselves. But nothing really caught my attention like one did. He said that he wanted some advice and asked rather politely if someone would help. I responded to it without hesitation, and looking on that now, I believe that this was the start of a wonderful miracle and had everything to do with fate.
Me and Aaron, which was his name, talked about his girlfriend at that time, and how they were having problems and then I discussed my problems about my boyfriend at the time. During this time in which we talked, I found that he was amazing easy to talk to and I found myself opening up to him in so many ways. We talked about ourselves and life and love and everything imaginable and I was so intriqued by this person. This conversation went on for hours and hours until finally I had to say goodbye.
Well, in the weeks that followed, he would e-mail me and try to contact me, and then I would do the same, but we never could seem to meet up again like we did that night. And it wasn't until, it must have been months, that we finally talked again. This time it was on the phone...almost nightly, for hours on end. We talked about so much, and even tiny little insignificant things seemed so interesting from his point of view.
One day I was ecstatic to have him mention the idea of flying across the United States to meet me. You see, he lives in Nevada and I live in South Carolina and I never imagined the prospects of this ever happening. I kind of placed it in the back of my mind so as not to get over-excited in the case that it never happens. But sure enough, weeks later he called to say that he had bought round trip tickets to South Carolina and he would stay twelve days. Well, we had never really seen each other before and so I was having self conscious doubts and fear of what might happen if we didn't hit it off. All I had seen was a picture of him, which I later discovered was nothing like him. And all he had of me was one that I dug up to send. What could be the results of this? What if we hated each other in person? But then I thought about how I had fallen for this guy. This guy who I only had a voice and letters to relate these feelings. I realised that I loved this person and I had never met them before. I loved his thoughts and his logic and his sense of humor, and that was enough for me to meet him.
Well time came for him to come and I found myself at the airport on July 30 waiting for his flight to come in. The announcement was made that they landed safely, and I was filled with such anticipation and fear as a plane full of people walked out into the airport. It seemed as if he would never get off, when suddenly I saw him and was filled with relief and happiness. The twelve days that followed were the most amazing and memorable of my life. I was indeed in love with this person and every bone in my body screamed that very same idea. He was the one. I melted in his arms.
Time passed and it was time for him to go back home to Nevada. I tried to put these horrible feelings of him gone out of my mind, but when the plane started to board, I ached for him already, even though he was still beside me. I knew then that we would see each other again ,but it didn't matter to me because the lonliness that I knew was instore overwhelmed me in every way. As I watched him leave and the plane took off, he took my happiness with him. I still sit in my room at night and envision how we talked together and the way he looked at me and how much I missed him.
We talk on the phone, and on-line every chance we get, but I know that I must endure this pain for months to come. I know that when I sit alone and cry, that that is not the end to the pain I still have to face in the upcoming months. I have found that when you love,it doesn't stay dormant inside you, but you give it away to that special someone who is lucky enough to obtain it. And when they leave you, they take it with them, so that you never really leave each other, but you never really feel complete while they are gone either.
I will wait, and I know that I am not the first or the last to experience this kind of pain. But my pain is real to me because it is mine. Everyday is one filled with struggles for me......and it continues.
