Recently, I have started to fear that he’s slipping away.
I can’t tell if it’s just me being crazy or if this is my instincts picking up on him losing interest…
Russell confesses he hasn't dated since 1989 and Jess replies, "That was the year I learned to use the toaster by myself." Not so hot.
DO be lovey dovey, but DON' T nickname him something based on his age (Fancypants is cool, though).
We met on FB after many years apart, and live in different states.
A lot of distractions are removed, as well as a lot of luxuries, which can make a relationship easier.
Bottom line, I wish it was more intimate, more calls, more often…I just told him this, and he has been more attentive since the conversation.
— Deb from a Distance First of all, not everybody who’s in a long-distance relationship through college breaks up.
I continue to stand by that, but there’s another side to this, which is: Long distance forces you to become at relationships. The “stuff” that makes a relationship work is the same whether you share the same bed or live 3,000 miles apart.
The “stuff” that makes a relationship magical, profound, and amazing is the same.
