I'm in a long distance relationship

Friday, 28 September 2018

I never thought I would be in a long distance relationship, just to throw that out there. Definitely not after I met Ibby. 

We moved in pretty much a few months after we met and we haven't really been apart since, two holidays and a few weeks of him in London but that's the most it's been. So now we live 128 miles away and it's harder than I thought it would be. It was weird initially as we made a plans a good few months before we parted, but that was actually the hardest part, being together but knowing we'd be apart really soon. I just felt sad all the time.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not one of those girls that can't live without a man, but.. he's my best friend I miss him quite a lot.

I never thought I'd be spending our 4 year anniversary sat in my room, without him. 5 days after he will be here and I'm sure we will have the best time, like we always do.. it's just a big change in both our lives.

When we lived together we hardly ever text each other, apart from about picking the shopping up... because we'd normally be back home in 5 minuets, so now it's strange, it's like when you meet someone for the first time and you really think how the message them. It's weird that it all feels so new. 

I wanted to share what helped me since we parted, it's so strange it is kind of similar to breaking up - as you aren't together everyday, you don't share your life with them (as much). On the other hand you have start using your phone more, and actually messaging each other?!

I think one thing that really helps is making sure you talk to each other everyday, not necessarily a phone call, but just tell each other what you have been up to, however your days is going etc. It's nice because you still feel close even though you're miles away.

So far I've only been doing this for a month, and this evening I'm seeing him for the first time since he left to follow his dreams of working in London, being the best accountant ever! (biased) I expect I will you will be reading a lot about long distant relationships from me, but I bloody hope it gets easier.

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. I've done the whole long distance thing and it's so hard, but it's so much easier now with things like skype, whats app etc xx

    1. It has actually been a lot easier than I thought, you're right seeing each other is so easy these days, obviously we can't cuddle over skype but it's close 😂

  2. I was with my long-distance (now ex-) boyfriend for 3.5 years and it was bloody brutal, it would be really hard for me to do that again. I love having someone to curl up with and chat shit with everyday!

    1. I know, I've missed just having a best friend as well as a boyfriend. We are hoping it won't be for longer than 6-12 months, but 3.5 year is long!! I definitely couldn't do that, it does really test you! x
