Long Distance Relationship
I have been in my relationship for almost 4 years and the long-distant relationship for 2 1/2 years and yes it has been rocky! At first, I moved to Atlanta for school and he stayed home. I decided to come back home to be with him, but then he enlisted in the Army. I was hurt and felt betrayed in a sense, but when he brought up marriage, that calmed some of my fears.
At first, I was going to move to where ever he went. But I am career driven and I didn't want to move from University to University and never finishing school. So, when he got stationed in Fort Bragg and found out that he would be there probably all of his four years, I became excited. My major in film making and acting, there is little opportunity where I live and even less opportunity where he is, so I painfully decided to stay where I was.
It has been very hard, because I know Army men are can be easily influenced, also, me being the social person that I am, I do get tempted. We broke up October of '99 when I went to visit him. It was very unexpectant and very painful. During that time of our break, we both began to see other people. I still missed him and he missed me. We went through a lot of deceit and betrayal during that time and made a pact that we would work things out. Right now, we don't have a title, we agreed to let things gradually happen. Things have been difficult and sometimes I just feel like giving up, especially when he withdraws from me.
One thing I had to realize is we have other problems other than each other and sometimes people need space to work through them - alone. If we don't work out, I still don't regret it. I love him dearly and I have learned much about love. I have more respect for its power than I have ever had. I still feel anxious and scared, because I don't want to make the same mistakes that broke us up the first time (and I don't want him to do that either). Being in this type of relationship teaches you a lot about discipline and expectations.
Don't put each other on pedastals, because everyone can mess up, but don't use that as an excuse to decieve your partner. If it gets that bad, but you still want things to work out, talk to each other. At least that what works for me.
