Long Distance Relationship
Story of the Week


I met my boyfriend, Scott, in may which was my senior year of high school. my best friend introduced us-- her boyfriend is one of scott's close friends. we met and hit it off, and went out on a number of "dates" over the next few weeks. i told him early on that i didn't want to get too involved, because i was leaving for school in the fall and didn't want to go through that. also, i'd recently had a heartbreaking experience with a long distance relationship only months earlier. but we continuted to date anyway, and three weeks after we met he came to my graduation to see me walk across the stage. that night i realized-- i DID want a relationship with him, i wanted him in my life, and i didn't care about the fact that i was leaving. we decided we would work thatout when the time came.

We had a wonderful summer. scott and i fell in love very quickly-- we said those three special words after being together only 8 weeks, and i lost my virginity to him not long after. he was very earnest with me when he told me he loved me, and and i meant it from a part of myself that i didn't know i had when i told him i loved him. this was in july. in august, we slowly came to the realization that i was leaving very soon. neither of us were prepared in the slightest for what kind of pain was to come when i left-- a few days before we were driving on the highway and he stared out the window and explained to me how much it hurt him that i was going but that he knew it would be fine. i knew it would be fine in the end, but iw as worried about the pain. the day i left was the hardest day of my life-- we all cried: my brother, my best friends, all of us-- scott cried, i think, the hardest of all of us. he couldn't let go of me, and i think that only made it harder. i didn't want to let go of him either.

I knew then how much i loved him, because i finally realized what it was going to feel like. i cried for the first hour on the road, and tried to hold myself together after that. i called him that night, and then next morning, cring each time. we spoke every day for a few days, and then i told him that talking to him all the! time would only make this harder. so we didn't tlak the next day. i cried myself to sleep that night. i called him and told him as much, andhe reluctantly told me he had done the same. we realized we couldn't put each other out of our minds, so we would simply have to pretend we were there together.

Right now, we talk everyday, online and on the phone, for hours. i've been away for nearly two months, and next week he's flying down to see me. it will be the first time i've seen him in almost exactly two months. i still love him with all of my heart, and i really think i love him more now than i did before i left. i've realized what life is like without him holding my hand through it all, and i don't like it. not only do i love him, but i need him. i think if i didn't have him i would have been extremely depressed for the last two months. i've had a lot of panic attacks, but he's talked me through every one of them.

He's always been there when i needed him to be, and even when i just wanted him to be. he's been wonderful, and i plan to transfer back to my home state university next year and move in with him. i honestly believe that i have found the love of my life at 18, and him at 20.

I've never needed nor wanted anyone the way i do him, and i don't plan to let this slip away. and the long distance thing has really brought us together-- we both truely cherish what we have in each other now in a way we never could have if we hadn't had to go through this.
