Long Distance Relationship
I've been involved in a long distance relationship for the past 6 months with a guy who lives in Vancouver. And I must say that the past 6 months haven't been easy at all. At first, I doubted our relationship because I'm the type of girl that needs physical assurance. Not so much that I need the person to touch me physically all the time but just knowing that he's there for me in time of need makes me feel more assured. But as time went by, I thought to myself that if I just let go of this relationship just like that, it would be really inconsiderate on my part. I just find it so unfair that in life, we are limited to many people to whom we could date. There are billions of people on this earth yet, we are confined to only so many people due to the distances between us.
YOu never know...sometimes the perfect/ideal person that you may be looking for might just be at the other end of the world! But, coming back to where I started. I was really doubting our relationship and this is when I decided to turn to my nearest bookstore to see if I could ask for some book that could guide me a little with how i'm feeling towards all of this. And eventually, i came about finding this marvelous, well written book called Loving your long distance relationship. I must say, after having read this book, Stephen Blake really inspired me with his writing and with his uppermost inner feeling about long distance relationships. Having not being alone in this, i felt more reassured that I wasn't alone and that there are many people out there that are in the same situation as I am. Although it may not all be all that easy, I find that it is worth giving it a try. It really brings a different side of you.
Being in this relationship for 6 months already, I've come to learn a lot of things that i never realized about myself, about my personality, about my temper and primarily with the patience that I have. To tell you the truth, I love talking on the phone, but I can't stay on the phone ! for too long because I lose my patience quite fast. And so, I never can stay on the phone for more than 20 minutes without feeling frustrated, but considering that all i have with the guy in Vancouver, i find myself, being more patience than ever and being able to converse with him for long. We talk a minimum of an hour each night, although the phone bill racks up quite a bit each month, i try to see it in a way that it's alright if phone bills rack up like that because if the person was here in town, we would go out anyways weekly and spend quite a bit! so the money spent on phone bills are o.k because it can be thought of as if the money was spent if you guys were together in the same city. I have intentions in moving there for good to be with him but I find it would be too much of a commitment. I find this time apart really gives us a chance to realize whether we were meant for each other or not. It's a test we could say. I'll be seeing him in 2 weeks and boy, am I ever excited!
It makes it so much more special being able to see other not every day but once in a while and it makes the time that you guys are together more valuable. But, i must admit, just the other day, I found myself crying while writing him a poem. I guess I didn't realize that I missed him so much until writing my feelings out on paper. I find myself not missing him as much as I should because I'm just so caught up with so many things here in Montreal. In a way, it's a good thing because time flies by without me noticing. And it's not that i don't miss him, it's because i look forward towards the time i'll be seeing him again and so i do all that i need to do and set myself ready when the time comes. I find throught the past 6 months that in life, we have to go for what we feel inside and not be afraid of trying new things. this is one of my most wonderful experiences ever in my life. So challenging and so special.
It really is worth giving a long distance relationship a try although it may take much hard work. Much work is needed to make it work out but i find that at the very end of it all it is worth it if the person makes you happy. I'm going to see how things are going to work out. If things are good, i might just find myself moving down there next September. But for the moment, i don't have plans going there yet because it may just be the wrong move. But as for going there in 2 weeks, i'm really exited, and i'll be sure to keep you all in touch! Thanx for allowing me to share my thoughts with you.
