Long Distance Relationship
Well, how to start? I started playing a Role Playing Game on the internet when i was about 16 years old. On that game, called Mortal Realms, I met very interesting and fun people... One of them was Cliff. He was just a good freind, but then things started to change and we would sit and chat and play every evening...We would use the internet phone and sing our favourite songs to eachother, he was always so full of energy, cheering me up everytime i needed it. It was amazing how well we got along, and we even spoke on the phone, just joking about everything and nothing.
It didn't take too long for that freindship to become a romance, it was the summer of 1999, when we finaly decided to meet. So i flew up from Central Mexico to Northern Indiana, to meet this sweet 20 year old guy who had stolen my heart. I cannot deny my nerviousness when i got off the plane at South Bend Airport (after good 5 hour delay). The first thing i did, when i recognized him through the crowd, was run into his arms and give him a kiss. ( i guess that definately broke the ice!)
My stay in Indiana was probably one of the best times of my life. We took things easy, getting used to eachother.. and it was amazing how well we fit togetherl. We sang and danced to our favourite songs, we went roller blading, walking in the park, bowling... it was a rush! So much energy, we would talk, play games cook for eachother, (well, actually he was the one who cooked for me hehe) and end up engaged in tickling and licking fights... hehe
The day before i left we went out to the movies, i could feel his pain in the way he looked at me.. none of us enjoyed the evening. That night we broke into tears. My stay was comming to an end and we didn't know how or when we would see eachother again. The next day he took me to the airport, and for some strange reason, instead of crying all the way home, i was actually smiling and laughing, reamembering all the good things we had shared.
It was a long wait until winter break... Sometimes i didn't think we would make it. The internet and phone conversations were not the same after having eachother so close. The first months were the worst. I think we were both going through withdrawal. But after a while, each of us got involved in our daily activities, and going out with friends, etc... we kept chatting online, playing Mortal Realms, and calling eachother everytime we felt like it (and could afford it). We started making plans for his trip to Mexico with enough time. It was the first time he would be traveling outside the US. We arranged everything and prepared to have the best time of our lives for the Millenium celebration. I reamember the day countdown went by so quickly.. 65 days and then just 2.. the waiting was killing us at some point, but the thought that we would be close together again made it all better...
December of 1999, it was a blast! I was the happiest person on earth. I was so happy to show him the way we live here, my culture and my roots. And it was so sweet of him to try to speak the language and blend with my huge family and my freinds. We went to my favourite places down town, alleys, nightclubs, parks, challenged eachother on video games... we went rollerblading together again.. into a supermarket and even a restaurant! We even got matching military tags with our names on them... The night before Christmas he gave me this beautiful Ruby Ring... Everything was perfect.. we escaped my mom, and went away one weekend to a nearby city.. a magical place called Guanajuato, where we took a small tour, and ever pretended to be newly weds!! hahaha... the colonial hotel right in the main square, all the alleys, the food, the people and even that little doggie that adopted us, made it something to reamember.
I must say that for my family accepting my foreign boyfreind was not all that easy, but in the end, they saw how much we love eachother... my cousins all liked him, and my little niece, even started calling him "uncle cliff" hehhehe... New years was good, we got all dressed up... wow! Cliff looked GOOD! Champaigne, fireworks, grapes, music, kareoke... it was fun! ...Until the party was over.. and then we knew his stay was getting to and end. We had caught a cold, and were feeling sick.. he started getting grouchy... we would fight about any little detail... I don't think we enjoyed the trip to the pyramids... and the day he left... everything was rushed... i didn't like our good-bye at the airport.
Next monday is going to be San Valentine's Day... and things have not been going to well between us.. it is the lack of communication i believe.. it's the coldness of plain text on a screen. Let me tell you, if you think women and men cannot understand eachother, try understanding eachother through 4000 miles. It is not easy. School and work have kept us busy, and sometimes we don't hear from eachother in weeks. Right now I know he is going through a really tough time at home, and it tears me appart that i cannot be with him to comfort him. Sometimes things get really bad.. i feel really lonely, but i hang on to the thought of seeing him again next summer.
