A Long distance relationship is a REAL relationship!!

With the world getting increasingly smaller as technology lets us reach almost everywhere on earth, it is getting easier and easier for people across oceans and the world to meet, chat and even start a relationship together.

People don’t choose who they fall in love with, the time they fall in love or even the place. It happens when you least expect it and can be in the most unexpected places.

Long distant relationships are not for the non committed people, they take a lot more time, a lot more patience, a lot more communication and a lot more trust.  In an LDR you get to find out more about the person, as a person, instead of just relying on chemical or physical attraction (but that does happen when they get together) ;).

You get to know the person for who they are. You get to know them on a much deeper level than if you just met them in a bar and take them home one saturday night. You learn to listen, to open up, to communicate with each other which is the foundation to any relationship.  You have already fallen in love with the person before you’ve even met, and if you aren’t a shallow person or revolve a whole relationship on physical features, no matter what happens when you meet you will just fall deeper in love.  You will feel that physical connection on top of the love. You will see them as they are in the inside and as what you fell in love with….. Beautifully perfect.

As time goes on and you stay in the relationship, you meet each other more and more, talk to each other daily, and miss them like nothing else. But. You wouldn’t change it for the world, as you have found the one you want to spend your future with, and when you are finally together, it will be everything you’ve been waiting for for years.

Love is not bounded by distance.

It is a real relationship no matter where you both are.

The beauty of Love

The world as we know it can be a very dark and lonely place, there is war, famine, poverty, murder and a lot more without going too deeply and depressingly into it. But. Through all of this darkness and pain, there is the one thing that can bring people together. It doesn’t care of race, it doesn’t care for different or same sex, it doesn’t care for age, religion or vanity. For when love finds you no matter who you are, it will change the way you are. It is the most powerful gift we possess. To be able to love. Love can lift the world up and at the same time, bring the strongest person to their knees.

It doesn’t come in only the form of two people loving each other, or marrying, maybe having a family. It can be as simple as you’re best friend, the one person who you can always rely on to give you advice and be there for a shoulder to cry on when you need it. It could be your ever faithful pet, the one thing in your life that doesn’t care about what you look like or what colour skin you are. It can even be walking back home on a cold winters night and seeing a homeless woman shivering on the street, going to the coffee shop across the street and buying her some warm food to get her through the night.

These are just a few examples of how beautiful you, and the world can be even in the darkest of times there is always that small beacon of hope, that feeling deep in your stomach that makes us human. Without love is a world with no existence, a world with not people but vessels carrying the cold hearts of the barely living, as without love, you cannot live.

Love comes in all shapes and sizes. Each and every one of us is entitled to love who we want, Love tends to find you when you least expect it. That’s the beauty of it all. When everything seems at its worst. One simple emotion can change your whole world in an instant.
