Oh my gracious I HATE having a long distance relationship. Here's my story:
Jake and I went to high school together but I don't remember him (I guess he let me cheat off his spanish papers, which sounds about right). I went to college in my home state (Oregon) and he went away for school (Ohio). After about two years, he popped up in the "People you may know" section on FB. I added him and we started chatting. I remembered who he was just not any personal interactions. Over the next two years he became kind of my best friend. Because he wasn't around and wasn't connected to anyone in my life, I really enjoyed the late night spill-all-the-juicy-secrets-because-this-kinda-doesn't-seem-real thing.
But, alas, we developed feelings for each other. After a horrific back and forth between him and another guy (whom I went for over Jake and ended getting chlamydia and my heart broken after a year) I called Jake and we decided we should just suck it up and be together since we were both miserable. Of course there's more sappy details but I'll spare
He had signed with a company straight from college which would require him to move from Ohio to Connecticut and not back to the West Coast. I made the decision that I was going with him.
The next year was absolute torture. Here I was stuck living with my parents again, working two jobs 7 days a week to make money to save to move with and he was finishing his senior year, 2,000 miles away going to parties and enjoying college (like I already had done but it still wasn't fair!). There were time when he wouldn't answer my calls for DAYS and I'd have to stalk him through Facebook check-ins from his friends (it sounds shady but he's just the kinda guy who never cares where his phone is and most of the time it's lost). We'd skype every once in a while but it was really hard. I cried a lot. He sent me a lot of flowers.
Now we've been living together going on two years. Going from long distance to an 800 square foot apartment was a whole OTHER barrel of issues but my point is this: if it's meant to be, it will be. Long distance is really, really hard but if you both see the importance in being with each other, you'll be fine. Don't be clingy, I made that mistake. Don't worry about what he's doing or you'll never develop trust. Cute text messages pretty much got me through it. That and the daily photo. I made him send me a picture every morning so I could see him. It makes all the time you spend together SO much better.
I wish all ladies in long distance relationships good luck. I'm sorry this is a long post but I just moved to a new city and don't really have people to talk to yet so I'm super into blogging....
