  1. sigh… i was the one who left for college. We’d been together for all of high school, we thought we were forever. i only moved an hour’s flight away, but he wasn’t strong enough. I really thought it was going to work but we barely lasted a month long distance. it still hurts

  2. My kids are in Nebraska and I moved to Louisiana with my new husband, I don’t know if they understand why I had to move and I don’t think they respect me for it.

  3. I thought of my mom and dad when I saw this. I thought how he’s in North Carolina and we’re here in Georgia.
    Because my mom made a decision, and is now regretting it more than ever.
    It’s been 5 years, and she’s still praying.

    This shouldn’t be a secret.
    Tell them how you feel.

  4. He lives in Massachusets..I live in Tennessee..
    It’s been a little over three months..
    And I’ve never felt this way about a boy in my entire life.

  5. I’m in the US. He’s in Switzerland. He’s the most important person in my life. It’s incredibly difficult, but 100% worth it.

  6. I’m in the same situation, he is in CH and I’m back here in the states. I miss him more then words can express, but can’t imagine life without him.

  7. I’m right there with you, Natz. My fiance is in Scotland and I’m in America. But all will work out. Distance is just a number. If you talk to them everyday, hold no secrets, and just remind each other everyday that you love each other everything will work out. It’s corny, but if it’s meant to be NOTHING will stop it – I’m living proof

  8. I live 1000 miles away from the man I love. I am from an urban town and him from farmland. I know one day we’re going to be together and from that day forth never part. And that’s what gives me hope. 🙂

  9. my biggest fear is the ambiguous mid-march when college decisions come back. until then, limbo is bliss. but then, what are we going to do?

  10. My boyfriend went to college 8 hours away and we have lasted 3 years and still going strong. It’s the hardest thing that I have done, but it’s made us stronger.

  11. I just now read all of these comments…the person who made me stop being cynical and believe in love lives in NYC. Im in Huntington Beach, Ca. We met during a writing program in Paris and he stole away all my pain and doubt, but most of all he tore the walls down around my over-protected heart. I have never loved anyone like I love him. He said “I’m falling in love with you” only after 3 weeks in france. I responded with, “you should not say that if you do not mean it,” only because I was so afraid it wasn’t true. The morning he walked out my door and hopped on a plane back to NYC, I realized that I was in love with him too. Instead of chasing after him, I cried in my room till I had to go. 5 months of disconnected communication and broken hearts, I met him in NYC and told him how I felt. We did not try the distance, we do not talk to each other anymore, and I love him more than I did 8 months ago and I know he loved me too. I know how everyone feels and like everyone, I do not know what to do.

  12. I honestly never thought I would be in a situation like this I’m from California and she is from Indiana. It’s so hard to be away from her when all I want to do is be with her. I really hate having to see her face on the computer screen and not be able to kiss her. But we know that it is with one an other that we want to be with. And even though it hurts this relationship is completely worth it

  13. I’m in Oregon for a summer job and she’s all the way in Michigan. We started dating a week before I moved and have managed to skype and talk on the phone almost every night… until she broke my heart and told me she wasn’t strong enough for the distance. I’ll be home in a month and for the past couple weeks haven’t thought about anything or anyone else but her. I love her and I hope she still loves me when I return…

  14. This made me think of my mom.. She had to move to Florida and leave me here in PA. I miss her so much. Im 20 yrs old and i just feel like i wasnt ready for her to go =(
