I've done the long distance thing, I did it during a physical relationship (i.e. we met in real life & got to know each other and then it became long distance), and I've done it where it's just been long distance (read: online). Either way it sucks.
quite a tactile person when in love,
I like to touch them, to run my hands all over them, to feel that
physical connection. You would think, therefore, that I would avoid long
distance like the plague. Well, I should, but things come along, don't
they. Amazing people walk, technologically, into your life and you can't
just go "nope, not gonna get involved because of the distance," that
would be silly, well to me it would be.
there are some people in my life who are a long way away but who light
up my life and make me happy. That is more important than the distance,
because distance can be overcome, it might take some doing, but it can
be overcome. So much as I want to hug them, kiss them and do naughty
things with them, I can wait for them too because special people like
that don't come into your life that often.
