Long Distance Relationship
Story of the Week


At first, I was hesitant to contribute my story, because I thought that the age of both myself and my relationship were too young to be taken seriously. Nonetheless, I went with my gut feeling-- I am so happy, so in love and so content with my long distance relationship that I knew it would be appropriate to share my story. I am an 18 year old college student, and my boyfriend and I have been together a little over 8 months.

I met Douglass about a year ago when I was a senior in high school, and he a junior. He was dating a friend of mine casually, so we both hung out with the same group of people. As a serious relationship that I was in began to fizzle, and his as well, we started to show interest in eachother. Through his friends I learned that he had a crush on me, and I returned the sentiment-- Doug was different than any boy I had ever had feelings for before; he was a bit of a nerd, passionate about calculus and physics, with a knack for playing chess, and so I was intrigued. He had (and of course still has) these gorgeous big brown eyes and this delicious smile that would spread across his face, and he was the shyest boy I had ever met. We began a slow courtship that lasted for a few months, and then we began to get serious. I knew that I would be headed off to college soon, so I didn't begin my relationship with Doug thinking that it would continue.

Doug had never been in a serious relationship before, and had never fallen in love, so I didn't expect to be the "special" one. Boy, was I wrong.

We quickly learned that although we were so different, we appreciated the beauty in many of the same things-- music, holidays, family, being alone. Never had I met someone so wise, caring and understanding. One night he looked me directly in the eyes and asked if he could tell me something. I said 'of course.' He held my face and told me he loved me. That was the greatest feeling in the world! I knew right then and there that this was no fling-- I realized that a long distance relationship wouldn't be hard if it meant I could be with my Douglass. He has something in him that I know I could never find in anyone else; he has an ability to see the best in every situation, and comforts me when I am overcome with the confusion that often characterizes the early college student experience.

He works so hard, and is headed to an ivy league school next year, four hours from my school. We plan to stay together "forever" as we tell eachother, but I know that even if something were to happen and we couldn't be together, I will always love him. He is a treasure, unlike any other person I will ever meet.

To those of you who question the feasibility of a long distance relationship, I say, if the shoe fits, wear it!!! Don't throw away something that makes you happy just because you think it won't work out in the future; enjoy what you have while you have it and take each day as it comes. I know that what I have with my boyfriend is not something that will come and go like many other high school/college relationships. We bring out the best in eachother, and he is where I belong.
