It absolutely breaks my heart having to say goodbye to him knowing that it’ll be weeks before I get to see him again. Watching him drive away down the street or standing on the platform waiting for the train that will take me 300 miles away are the moments that I always dread.
I get asked all the time why we ‘bother’ with a long distance relationship and the question baffles me every time. Why would be break up when he’s the one I want to spend the rest of my life with? As hard as it is now, one day we’ll get married, buy a cute little cottage in the countryside and start a family together. So in reality, what are a few years of distance when we have all that to look forward to one day?
Until then skype will just have to suffice, but I'll continue to long for the day that the long goodbyes will come to an end.
