A Love of a Thousand Miles

Photo 30-06-2017, 11 35 52 AMIt takes everything to love a person. When you are deeply into her, you can think of every possible chance only to meet her and it doesn’t matter however hard it is or how much time it will cost you. Seeing her face in reality is incomparable to endless texts and long video calls.

Long distance relationship especially sounds difficult. Yes it is. You only get one chance to see each other every couple of months, to spend a time together, to enjoy meals together, to watch movies, to travel around the city, to enjoy each other’s company, to feel each other’s warm hugs and passionate kisses, and to finally hear her “I love you” through her sweet lips. But before the date ends, you will realize that every single happy moments with her will be replaced by “I miss you” and “I wish you were here” messages again. And when it goes back to normal, you will have to wait another chance to embrace that special someone once more.

Long distance relationship is different from others. It takes courage to enter one. You should be ready to accept that she’s not always physically there. You should be aware that you can’t do anything but to wait for that another time you can see her again. It might take for a while, but surely those times will be a bliss and you will treasure every moment with her. And lastly, you should always remember that distance doesn’t reduce the value of her feelings for you, because her love for you is unconditional. It is a fact that this distance of a thousand miles will be temporary, because love can do anything, and love can help you bring each other closer not only to each other’s hearts, but also to each other’s arms.
