Have I seen any long distance relationship that worked? No, I haven’t. Yes, I have. But it didn’t last long enough. But then what is long enough for me? and what is it for you? Do I believe in long distance relationships? Yes, of course! But then I’m just a silly naive romantic guy, maybe one of the last romantic guys on bloody Earth who believes in pretty much everything love related.
Have I been in a long distance relationship? Nope! Have I been interested in someone miles apart? Yes, more than once. Why did I do that? Probably because I’m just a silly naive romantic guy. (Yeah, I’m being repetitive. It’s on purpose!) Would a long distance relationship work for me? Maybe. In order for that to happen I’d have to have a fierce battle against my insecurity. I believe long distance relationships can work for mature people. And when I say mature people I don’t say old people, but people who have had enough experience, several relationships and know exactly what they want from their next relationship. And I’m not sure whether I fit this profile or not. Maybe not. However, I wouldn’t mind trying. Not at all. As I said before, I believe in it. If I had this kind of relationship I’d do everything to make it work. If it did, great! If it did not, well, it was worthy trying and I’d consider it a great life experience instead of a failure.
Are long distance relationships easier or more difficult? There’s no answer for that. It can be easier in some ways, more difficult in others… Have you ever thought about this: having more time with friends and/or family, no arguments over toothpaste caps, the pleasure of seeing your sweetheart again after a long absence? Most important, being far apart gives you a chance to maintain your individuality. Doesn’t it seem great? In theory, hell yeah! What would make it more difficult in my opinion? Well, avoid jealousy and be trusting, be positive and determined all the time. Things I don’t believe human beings are capable of. At least not for a long time.
Why am I writing this? Because I met someone miles apart and I mentioned her in my last post. How are things between the two of us? Two weeks ago it was great. How are things now? I honestly don’t know. I wish it was still great, but some stuff happened. Stuff that make my theory of me being just a silly naive romantic guy even stronger.
