I just happened upon these wedding boards while browsing wedding blogs during work yesterday (shh, don’t tell!) As a fellow LDR-er I was so comforted reading some of the posts on this board.
So I just wanted to introduce myself. I have been with my SO for four years.We met in college and are currently in our second year of living 3,000 miles apart. After graduation, he moved to the NY area and I live in California. We are not yet engaged, but we have talked about it and likely will be in the next six months or so.
As you all know, it’s so hard being apart, but we had done it during summers and when I studied abroad during college, so we had good practice by graduation I guess.
It’s great to know this board is here for the times I am down (or happy). None of my close friends are in LDRs so as much as they listen, I don’t think they always understand what I am going through.

Welcome! You’re definitely on a sympathetic board. My FI and I were long distance for about 4.5 years. You can do it, and we’re here for you!

Welcome to the bee! My Fi and I were LD for about 4.5 years. We were about 3,000 miles apart to.. him in Seattle and me in Louisiana. So i know how it is. It can be really tough but there’s always so much support provided here!

Welcome! I was only long distance for 4 months and we were only 500 miles apart, but I can sympathize with the pain of not being able to see your SO whenever you want!

Welcome to the bee 🙂 I’ve been with my Fi for a year and a half, and we’ve been in a LDR since the day we met! We’re only an hour away, but with both of us working full/regular time and school and everything else, we only get to see each other at the most a couple times a week.
It can be tough, but you’ll make it through, best of luck 🙂 The bees are always here for support!

Welcome! My SO and I are about 2500 miles apart – he’s in Cali and I’m in GA. So I definitely can sympathize. However we’ve only been doing the LD thing for about 6 months and it’s killing me – I admire all of you that have done it for more than a couple of years. 🙂 I hope I can stay strong like y’all for the next year or two!

Welcome! I haven’t seen FI since May….I get to see him in a week and a half though! Then a week and 2 days later we get married! You’ll always have some sympathetic ears here, that’s for sure!

Thanks all! I really appreciate the warm response.
The other day it hit me that between summers, my time in London and our current LD stretch, we’ve been in different cities longer than we’ve been in the same one.
Knowing there are so many people in the same situation makes the 10 months until I move to NYC seem not that long at all.
