Everything is better when we’re together *kisses*
It’s hard enough being on the other side of the world from my love. But right now, I’m even further than usual. And to make things worse, I have less time to spend with her, because I’m at the comedy festival, and out and about at all hours, seeing shows and drinking in bars and occasionally buying hats.
And I miss her. I miss her so much. I want to bring her out here next year for the festival, so everywhere I go, I keep imagining how much better it’ll be next year, when she’s here (and when I can stay for the whole month in a nicer apartment than the one I’m in, but that’s a different issue).
What I love, though, is how much we have to look forward to. I go home to Sydney on Sunday (although I’ll be back again for a few days next weekend), and then we’ll be less than two months away from seeing each other again. June is going to be amazing. I can’t wait to see her again, and have her back in my house.
It’s one of the rare upsides to the LDR. So very much to look forward to. And even in the midst of sadness, you always, always have hope.
The other day, I was telling my Mom how Catherine is away at her comedy festival with her friend Kel.
Mom: “So she has a friend ‘Kel’ and a wife ‘RAquel’!”
I almost didn’t know how to reply for a second, I was just so floored and awed that she said it that way so casually. I couldn’t stop grinning for a while. *g*
We are both so lucky that my family is so unbelievably supportive. Neither Mom nor my sister & her husband have ever once second-guessed our relationship and the seriousness of it. The only negatives they talk about are how much they’re going to miss me when I move away someday. ♥ My family can seriously drive me CRAZY and I won’t lie, I’m looking forward to being out on my own away from them, but to know that, of all the roadblocks in our way keeping Catherine and I apart, my family isn’t one of them? Is pretty damn amazing.
Never thought I’d feel like this, didn’t think it was possible, but I do.
The best thing ever
Sorry for the NSFWness, but this is so perfectly TRUE. I miss ittttt.
stop seperating relationship expectations.
why is it expected that he needs space and not her?
why is it assumed that “she” will be the one asking too much?
why doesn’t it tell him not to cheat?
who says she wants to be treated like a princess?
who says “he” would be the one to ignore her?
who says she needs protecting? or wants it?
why cant he need protecting?
STOP PUTTING GENDER ON EVERYTHING THING.
IT DOESN’T EXIST
we should stop attributing false binary differences into everyday things.
Fucking truth, this kind of thing pisses me off so much. I see a lot of it, especially with the love blogs I follow for material for this blog. Heteronormativity is bad enough, but these archaic gender role stereotypes are so fucked up.
Read. I read alot when hes gone/busy/etc. I also practice yoga regularly. The meditation aspect helps alot. Hang in there!
Thank you! I do need to read more, I watch too many TV shows and movies on my laptop. That’s a good point. :)
One of the things I love most about other LDR blogs is when they post personal original things, little stories and insights about their relationships. But with us both having anxiety and me generally expecting no one to be interested in my personal life, that’s not really been something we’ve done too much of. I think I’m going to start trying to post things occasionally now. :)
We had 6 weeks together, Boxing Day to the beginning of February, and the last month was spent at her house, living a life of normal domesticity (even with her living with her Mum. *g*). I kissed her goodbye when she left for work every morning, and welcomed her home in the evening, and we went shopping together and watched TV and hung out with her friends and everything. It was just, normal life. And it was perfect.
The aftereffect of that is, the last month or so, I’ve been missing her so much more than usual. Now that I know what that’s like, how it feels, it’s even harder to be away from her. And now for 10 days she’s on vacation with a friend at a comedy festival. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled she’s having some fun and going out, she doesn’t have enough downtime so I love seeing her happy. I sit here grinning at the silly things she texts me when she’s drinking. *giggles* But it does mean less time for us to chat and connect, so my nights feel empty.
How do you guys deal when your LDR SO is on vacation or away and can’t keep in contact the amount that you’re used to? Do you do anything special to distract yourself or fill your time?
have you ever wanted to be with someone so badly that you feel like something is physically missing from you and you won’t be able to feel whole again until you have them holding you tight
Life of everyone in a long distance relationship
Something is physically missing from me. I’m only whole when I’m in her arms. She’s my home.

I was born for so many things, and I’m starting to think they’re all to do with you. ♥
LOL We’re literally on the opposite sides of the planet so yeah, relevant. Can never reblog those kinds of things.
This is why I always do my best to be transparent with you, when I’m at my worst. So that you do know what you’re getting into. So you don’t judge me by my cover. You know all this about me, all the things this poem says, and you love me anyway. And I promise, no matter how broken I feel, I always love you, too.
