Long Distance Love: Day 1

May 15, 2015

We spent our one month anniversary packing his entire life into a variety of boxes and duffle bags. I carefully tore the tickets and pictures off the wall above his desk. Many of these trinkets belonged to the nights responsible for our blossoming love. In one month I have fallen so deeply in love with a man that makes me feel fortunate for every moment I can share with him.

The next 4 months of my life will be spent sending text messages and letters and planning FaceTime calls and perhaps a visit or two. Many people have asked why we bothered pursuing a relationship when we knew that for the next few months there would be 6 states separating us from each other, and I always answer that question the same way: “Whether or not there is a label on our relationship it will not stop me from feeling the way I do. Our feelings for each other are undeniable to not only ourselves but also those close to us, we’d be crazy to let something like this pass us by.” While I don’t know much about being in a relationship, I do know that I have made the right decision, and given the choice again I would choose the same. I know that it’s going to be hard, but absence makes the heart grow fonder and my heart grows fonder for him everyday.
