Your blog is a straight up inspiration. You bring so much hope to not only people in similar situations but anyone in a relationship. The effort and work you put in is something everyone in a relationship should strive for.
I met the boy I love when I was an Australian exchange student in Montana USA, four years ago when we were both juniors in high school. We both knew how we felt about each other before I left but we never made anything official. I came back to see him a year later. Things we great for a while but when my visit started coming to a close doubt started clouding both of our judgement, he made some pretty bad choices with a girl from his town, breaking my heart and sending me home in emotional shambles. We didn't speak for 18 months and everyday was hell, not being able to talk to him or see him smile or make him laugh or tell him how much I love and missed him. Last July when I was in a really dark emotional place, I texted him of out the blue and he was there for me when I needed him the most. We've been talking and having skype dates almost every day since July and Im flying over to see him on the 30th of June.
I think the reason everything started to fall apart is because we never discussed any boundaries. We both didn't want to pressure each other into LDRs so young. Looking back, I wish I would have just suggested being a relationship because it's definitely something we could have made work, because even after all the drama, the distance and the years I still love him so much.
You're blog has been instrumental in giving me faith that we can do this, even with the distance. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I’m so glad that you’ve found the blog to be a comfort. I think any relationship can follow a bumpy path to happiness. As long as the two of you are happy with your situation now, anything in the past is irrelevant. I hope you two have a very happy visit! :)
