I just want to share for a second that long distance is possible! 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. now, tell me that isn’t impressive. Relationships are hard work and long distance relationships are even harder. But keep it up, maintain a lot of communication, and do not idealize your partner so that when you see each other next you are not thinking that your partner is the best person in the world (because he/she probably isn’t). And…. love one another! It is possible.
