I’ll start this off by saying that I’ve never expected to find anyone I could connect with on such an incredible level. I’ve spent a large portion of my life (let’s say, 2/3’s) completely single because I am really picky and old school about finding the right person. Hook ups? Making out with strangers at a party? Going on a blind date? It’s never been me, or something I know I could do, which is surprising given my punk rock exterior which seems to scream, “I’m a stoner!” or even more accurately, “What haven’t I fucked?” to people as they get to know me.
Popping the question and planning to get married is always incredibly exciting, and when you’re in a long distance relationship, it’s arguably even more so! Rather than just planning the wedding and sharing news with family and friends, you’re figuring out which country to move to, researching visa options and are officially ending your long distance relationship!
Surviving a long distance relationship is totally possible- thousands of people have done it, continue to do it, and will be doing it long after we each finish the journey ourselves. Whether you’re currently in an LDR or will be someday, here are a couple things to remember, expect or take away from your experiences on this journey.
