Carol January 14, at 1: He has his own IT consulting company, his job takes him all over the country on long term contracts. He is rarely at home, only on most weekends, which amounts to about 48 hours. I am 62, he is I am preparing to retire next yearhis plans are to work for at least another 10 years with his own company traveling the country or the globe he has had contracts in foreign countries.
He seems quite content to do the traveling and remain uninvolved with a permanent realtionship…no desire to change. I feel sometimes like his storage unit-he has all of his belongings in my house, which does not amount to much besides clothes and a car, no more than he can move out in 8 hours he told me that initially when we moved together. Right now he is away on a contract that is scheduled to end in Octoberand another contract will follow that one, but I do not know anything about it at this time.
He is also very involved in AA, so much of his time when he is at my place is spent at meetings, or otherwise involved with his AA family, I am growing weary of this situation, talking about it to him has done nothing except anger him to the point of him threatening to end the relationship.
Any advice out there as to how to handle this? Katherynn February 11, at It is not how relationships are supposed to be, but I can attest to it. We celebrated five years together yesterday, and this weekend we will celebrate four years together long distance. Relationships are hard work and long distance relationships are even harder.
Hannah Turay March 18, at 7: One of my good friends asked me! So now he is working as a security, and he lives in Algeria. I love him so much and I know his the right one for me. Thylias Moss April 29, at 7: Divorce finalized in September I was married for forty years to a man I was with since I was Then we met for a most passionate weekend….
Fit ideally into both of our schedules. But now distance is becoming a problem…. Hundreds of miles apart. And I crave physical closeness. No problem when we were together…. NYC him and Michigan me I am exclusive, by choice, but he is not. What should be done? Cee July 21, at 8: I can sympathize with your situation a lot. I never had a long distance relationship before and am feeling the pain. If you want a committed relationship with me, we will have to make changes.
He is not storing anything at my home or using me for anything, says he is faithful, but wants to be free to roam the country alone and have his adventures.
We had a long distance relationship for four years. But I love him, and I know he loves me too. Andrew August 22, at Andrew Breanna September 5, at 6: My name is Breanna, and I used to live in Georgia.
The summer after my freshman year I moved to Kentucky, and ironically so was one of my friends, Brandt. Eventually, he moved back, but I stayed, but when we both lived here we started dating. He needs help raising money to drive here, and we would both really appreciate it if someone would donate!
Thank you all, I love all of these stories! Andrea September 6, at 7: I met him trough omegle on july and since day one we fell in love. Everything seems to be going great, he already had planned to come over during two weeks in August the year after and he surely seemed in love.
A few months later I started to notice he was a bit different so I decided to check what was going on. He always denied it and keep telling me how much I meant to him. Two months later, he kept going out with this girl and I finally decided to talk about it but he said she was just a friend. He came over to visited me and after he got back to his country things started to get weird again. He even completely disappeared for 3 days and I found it he was with this girl! He had a massive argument and he told me nothing happened.
I have doe nothing but being faithfully and love him all along. Chantal October 2, at I was thirteen and he was sixteen at the time. When I was fourteen, we started to be in the same activity and having fun what we like to do together. Such as, swimming in the lake, climbing, running, cooking, jumping on the trampoline, and tubing. The only different about that year was that we were being check over, because at the time.
There was a disease or illness spreading around the camp which is not anymore and my back had scrapes from my previous surgery, but Cody has this cold and they automatic put him with the other including myself. On our way back to camp, I fell asleep and landed on his shoulder. When I was fifteen when I came back the next summer, he was beginning to act weird around me. At first I thought that he finally realize that I like hime and was disgusted like all the other guys I liked, so I stayed my distance from him for my own sake, but he was always seem to make me laugh and smile.
By the time I was sixteen, everything started to be hard for me to move on. Near the end of the summer when I was smiling away from the feelings of being close to Cody. My friend has to tell him that I like him, right in front of me and he responding that he have a girlfriend.
At the moment, I was embarrassed for the first time, but I managed to play it cool when he was around. When I realized that it was my last year of coming back, I told myself that I have to move on from Cody and forget about him. The first week, I spend my time with a good friend of mine and kept myself busy. When the day came, I went to the boat to load my bags and the next thing I knew it. He was behind me asking me if I was going to the trip. I answered him that I was going and curse myself in my mind, but I also realized that he signed up for fishing before so he would be meeting us at the island.
When I got there, I swam and got foot cramps. By the time it was near dinner, he finally came and jumped in the water with his clothes on. It made me laugh of course and he went back with his trunk on.
We swam for a long period of time and came back in to have dinner. We ate and I swam again but I just floated around with noodles. He came back in and we swam another hour before the sunset.
I was talking to my friend about my previous crushes and told her that I liked a girl once. Cody came up to me and ask if I was gay. But it was the longest conversation that we ever had so I was happy that I was talking to him. That was when he finally told me that he always likes me from the beginning, but was shy to admit it. I told him that I like him too, but I was afraid that he just saying that, because I told him that I like girls.
It was when he first started to ask me to be his girlfriend and I said no at the time, but the next morning after he explain to me about what we did in the past. I finally made a choice to say yes and it was the happiness time I ever had. For that week, we were together like glue, but we managed to keep our relationship balance with our friends and keep our affection out of the public.
Everything was going perfect and I knew that something bad going to happens and I was getting ready with the pain that I would have to go through. My friend was trying to take Cody away from me, by letting her friend spread rumours that I was talking behind her back, because Cody picked me over her and I was handling it fine. All I did was that I told Cody the truth and wait for his answer to choose again.
For the next four days of feeling empty, I distracted myself and waited. I was happy again and I was fine with the outcome. The only problem was that it was the end of the summer and we needed to go back home. After the third week I gave up on waiting and was trying to accept the fact that he will never contact me. I tried to convince myself that he lost the note somehow or anything, but deep down I miss him.
Karna November 22, at 2: I am norwegian and I have been together with my boyfriend for 2 years. He is from16 and from Chile, although we met in South-Korea, where we both lived because of our family business. We met in January and dated ever since. We have been in a LDR for 5 months now, however he broke up with me yesterday. I never smoke, drank or messed around with boys — until i met my boyfriend x-boyfriend.
I lost my virginity to him when i was But we loved each other. My parents knew we were young but they loved my boyfriend, and his family loved me. Our relationship was perfect until I moved away from Korea. I was spending the summer of in Norway with my friends and family before I moved to Spain for 1 year. My boyfriends parents were so nice, letting him come to Norway for half the summer, which was the best time of my life.
I fell in love with him even more, seeing him get along with my friends and family. To be honest, our LDR has been going great. We skyped everyday and all day on Sundays despite the time difference, which was the major battle in our LDRand we communicated lots. But since he was drunk and only kissed her, i decided to give him a second chance. Lately we have been arguing a lot about the future.
When were we going to see each other again? What happens after we see each other? How long can we continue our LDR?
Until the end of collage? The next time we might be able to see each other would be next summer. But, 1 year apart? We love each other, but I cry myself to sleep almost every night and he suffers from great depression.
Even though he is depressed and I am suffering from anxiety, everything goes away when we skype. For the last week, we have been debating whether or not we should simply just break up — and that maybe it was for the best.
How to survive long distance when you live on two different continents
This weekend 2 days agoI decided to forget about everything that was going on and go to my friends birthday party, at a pub. I got drunk for the very first time. When I woke up the next morning I was so nervous to tell my boyfriend. This is because I promised him that my first time getting drunk would be with him; i would be safe in his arms. And then he hung up. My heart sank to the bottom of the ocean. I expected him to get mad but not this. I did not cheat on him, so I was in complete shock.
How could he react this way? He broke a promise, to stay faithful to me, but i still gave him a second chance. He sent me a text right after he hung up, telling me what a terrible person I was, complaining about how he thought I was different and independent, and loyal. This text made me even more confused. I have not replied or called since.
And I think he is expecting me to ask for forgiveness, and he would forgive. Normally this is what would happen in our relationship, since this has happened many times before. But perhaps its best this way. He was my best friend, and I would still want to talk to him everyday. Maybe he would take me back and things would go back to normal, but than what will happen? Im only 15 and I know I have a whole life ahead of me, and sorry if this sounds totally insane, but I can only imagine my future with him!
I am so comfused. I love him and I want to be with him but even IF he did take me back, what will the future hold? I have read all the other stories, and it really helps to relate with other people. I am in so much pain. Gerald December 22, at However 32 months later, We finally proved them wrong. Me and my girl friend got back together with more love and passion. It will work if you work it. Madison March 6, at 3: Ive been down for Zach since we met and he said he feels the same.
We tell each other we love each other atleast 20 times in a hour. We plan on moving in together in the future. And we got together. I knew from the start I loved her, I was just always worried about my personal problems, which made me think will cause me to loose her. And I was trying to get more settled for us. I was a pretty bad fuck up in high school, so I was trying to get done with school, get a job, raise enough money and go see her.
She even agreed to the idea and everything. But one problem was she always thought something was holding me back, but that was just school, money, and me. So finally i graduated high school, as a super senior, but early within the year than actually expected. And now i was trying to get a job, but was having trouble.
But we finally had a HUGE talk one night and she told me everything where I was wrong, and put me in my place to say, so then I decided we needed to compromise and so we gave each other many, many promises, and I finally stopped holding back and see each other and gave up my fears of it.
So now it is March, and sadly we got into a little fight which turned into something else. She ended telling me she wants to be with another guy, because he has his own place, job and started school again. Even before she planned on going to school here so we can live and be together but she decided to stay.
And at first i was a bit sad she started school, because we planned on. ILoveAngel March 13, at 8: Jacob March 24, at 1: I am super happy to say me and my lovely GF are together now and about to move into an apartment together this summer and our relationship has never been better! But there has been an overwhelming amount of forgiveness and realism. Despite all the bumps and extreme emotions that come with all of our mistakes, we kept a realistic out look on our relationship.
She had to decide if she still loved me after I could make such an extremely dumb decision. And it look about 6 months for her to really start to trust me again. Which is more than understandable if you ask me!
I had to make a similar decision when we wanted to get back together after she left me for another guy. I would say communication is the most important thing in a relationship for many reasons. Every relationship is gonna take its own form of communication. It takes a reprogramming of your brain almost. They never mention the times where it takes his dumb ass 4 years to commit to even see you. Marriage may seem like this wonderful rainbow that a unicorn farts out for once you become a certain age, but let me tell you as someone fresh out of a LDR and about to be engaged.
Its scary as SHIT! I also take payments in food. Tell her you are willing to see her and really DO it. But if she really has moved on, I am so sorry, there is a girl out there close or far who is much worthy of your love and who will love you back as much you love her. I am in a LDR for 4 yrs now and communication, trust, honesty and constant reminding the other of our love what keeps us both solid and together.
There should be reciprocity of love between the two of you or else one will be depleted, with all his or her love spent already. You empty love and get filled with love by the other. Both should be willing to fight for the other.
Go and visit her if you must and talk to her in person or prove to her you meant it…your love for her.
I hope this helps…Good luck. Halie April 15, at 5: My boyfriend 45 is from Florida. He is a truck driver. We talk quite more than before. He develop feelings for me. Been cheated and hurt in the past.
I will see you soon. I called him asking what for. He wanted to know what happen between us. He was talking to someone else at that point in October. He had feelings for someone else which that was me. It was his idea that I should fly out to Florida to see him to see where it was going to go. I booked my flight for Dec. I was excited and scared meeting him for the first time.
He was amazing everything what he said was true. I fell in love with him. We made it official that we were dating right on his 4th birthday. I was their to celebrate with him on his special day. Hardest part came on Jan 3, was the day I was leaving. We wrote each other a letter on how we felt towards eachother. As we got to the airline getting my bordering pass saying our goodbye and sweet kisses was the hardest thing.
I went my ways to get ready to go home. He called me after I got through security telling me he was trying to hold his tears back walking back to car. Have a plan on when you will see each other next.
Airport goodbyes are always sad and tearful, but knowing when you will see each other again is essential for moving forward. Get a Life You absolutely can not have a positive long distance relationship if you crawl into your bed and turn off the lights until he resurfaces.
You have to have a life.
How to survive long distance when you live on two different continents - Oneika the Traveller
Finding your groove when you are apart will fill the time and help you feel more independent-an attractive quality in any partner. That being said, I attribute much of our success to the fact that we were both over the going-out-every-night-drinking-and-dancing stages of our lives. One night of alcohol-induced craziness can kill any relationship … imagine what it could do after months of missing your long distance lover.
Make sure you and your partner are on the same page. Staying connected and ensuring you remain on the same page is instrumental to the success of your LDR.
But again … make sure you are on the same page. Stay Positive We were lucky. Our friends and family members were totally on board and supportive of us throughout our relationship, but we still had some Negative Nellies who insisted on sharing their gloom. Either refuse to talk about your relationship with negative people or distance yourself from them all together. Your relationship has enough stress.
