Long Distance Relationship
I have been in a long distance relationship for 5 months now and I never realized how hard yet fulfilling it would be. My boyfriend Scott and I met 1 year ago and at first were just great friends and working partners. It turned into more than friendship, but not overnight. We were both in other relationships at the time and weren't quite sure how to react to our feelings. The feelings kept getting stronger and I finally ended my relationship knowing it wasn't fair to him to be in love with someone else not knowing what was going to become of myself and Scott.
Then the worst thing happened that I ever could have imagined our company downsized and eliminated Scott's position after only 18 months. He knew that the best thing to do was go back to grad school in Phoenix and get his second masters in Health Care Administration so that he could be more sought out by new companies. He only needed to go for 1/2 year. I had accepted that this was the best thing for him and his career but my heart was screaming this isn't fair.
We cherished our last couple months together and continued to try to just remain friends since he was still sort of dating someone else but that was long distance too. Well time came to pack him up and he drove out to Phoenix calling me all along the way. He wasn't there a week and his girlfriend at the time went off the deep end and he said this is over. He hadn't realized it until now how much he missed us and hated them. He called all the time and I flew out there to see him. We fell in love and made love like we had been wanting to for months. It was wonderful and then I had to leave. Oh my god I thought I was going to die. Then the relationship began. We have been flying back and forth for 5 months now and I have never felt so happy. He is the most wonderful man. Everytime we leave each other it is an all out flood emergency. I can't stop crying and he tells me to stop because he gets started and then can't stop either.
We are planning a trip for him to come home in two weeks. It has been a month since we have been apart and I have this exact science down now on my emotions. The first few days I cry non-stop about everything. We then have that talk usually two to three days after he leaves of "What is going to happen to us when he graduates and has to move somewhere" I then get so depressed and we both start crying. The one thing I can say about this is we are both very honest about our feelings and expectations. Since we started out as friends and could always be honest it has helped out our relationship tremendously. The twist is I have a daughter who is 12 and I can't just up and leave and Scott agrees with me on this, probably more so than I do sometimes. I said sometimes. I can get to thinking that love with prevail and everything will work out if it is meant to be right. Well let me tell you that it is easy to trick your mind but not your heart into believing that we will be together come May. I can get myself so worked up sometimes thinking he is going to give up and we are going to break up because that is what we should do that I find myself not eating or sleeping for a week at a time.
I need to live more in the here and now until we can control the future better. We are so in love and have become closer that ever. Trust is so important and it can be so difficult at times and I try very hard to avoid jealous remarks that could lead to a stupid arguement. But I like you get to second guessing and get jealous when he is at school meeting other people, girls especially ha ha. I know that he loves me and cares about me and tells me all the time that there will never be anyone else as long as we are together. He has never been more comitted or happy in a relationship before and he has told his parents this too. They also see how happy he is for the first time in his life. Well there is so much more I left out but It felt good to tell my story.
Well for what it is worth thank you for your book to help me cope and just realize I am not alone. The only thing I wish I could stop is all the people asking me everyday what is going to happen once he graduates. Like we don't think of that enough on our own but they continue to make me second guess. I hate that. I just tell them exactly the truth I don't know but I am so happy right now that that is what truly matters. Thanks. Juls
