Long Distance Relationship
Well, where do i begin? Yes, I am 17 and probably many people agree that us teens dont know what love is. But heres something that people have to understand. Love comes from inside. Without even knowing it, i believe that we all have that feeling, just waiting and wanting to escape at the right moment. But some people can't find it early on in life.
It takes a while. But i am here to say that, well, i have found love. I met my boyfriend in NY when i was living there. Things were good in the beginning, but yet, we would soon learn that within two weeks of dating, i would go off to Puerto Rico for a 2 1/2 month vacation. I was terrified to tell him. For the first time i had found someone (and just to let you know, he is my first ever boyfriend) who really appreciated me and who i saw cared for me, and i was going to be separated from him. I really, really liked him and i just didnt want to lose him so early on in the game. I wanted to get to know him, i wanted to goof around a nd just be myself and hang out.
But i wouldnt be able to do that. So let me just tell you that that vacation was the longest vacation of my life. We spent countless hours on the phone, just learning about each other. And some part of me thought that it was probably somewhat of a good thing that we could just listen to each other for hours without running out of things to say. When i returned to NY and when i saw him, i knew we were good with each other. There was something special there. He told me he loved me 4 months into the relationship and so did i. Then afterwards, we then learned that i would be moving to Florida a month later. So now im here...Tomorrow makes 10 months that we are together and we have been separated for most of our entire relationship, and well that really SUCKS!
See, a lot of people might see this as being just an infatuation teen love, but its not. We have endured so much in our lives that we have been forced to grow up a little faster. We know a lo t. We are very mature about a lot of things in life, and this relationship is one of them. God, as i sit here and write this i just miss him more. I just wish sometimes i could just escape for a little while. Just escape all these emotions. I need a break from all of this, but i know if i do that, then who knows how ill end up feeling. All i know is that I love him. I have plans to see him in the summer but im not too sure.
He's going off into college this yr, after the summer. He was planning to come down here for college but he just found out that he probably wont be able to afford it, so he might end up going somewhere in NY and its killing me right now. We have love, trust, respect and everything else in this relationship, but its truly hard. I believe that we are able to do this. I just miss him. NO, wait, the word miss, it seems not to exist in my vocabulary anymore. I need a more powerful word for the feeling i have when im away from him. Anyone know?
