I think you’re right! I just keep looking forward to the day(s) we get to see each other! We went all Febuary without seeing eachother, so getting to see him now is sooo exciting!

That’s totally the best part! I look forward to seeing him every time. We see each other about 4 times a year because he’s in the military and I feel like a teenager every time. It’s wonderfu, expecially since we’ve been together for 4 years. I’m driving to FL to see him in 3 weeks!

The other perk is that I get tons of alone time. I get time just to do what I want with no interference. I get lots of time to spend with my ladies before I get married and move out of state. Plus, I can act as crazy obsessed about wedding stuff as I want and I don’t have to listen to him complain about it! lol.

That the end of LDR is really worth all the crappy stuff an LDR brings.

Oh and the whole “i grew as an individual” part also. that’s always good. cuz before i was a whiny, pathetic, insecure, clingy girl and then once he was gone it was like night and day. the new me is a better person

I love the anticipation of seeing him every time.  I have been very blessed and have gotten to see him almost every weekend since we met.  In past relationships I have been super clingy and this has forced me to have my own life during the week and develop as a person.  I am definitely looking forward to have a relationship minus the long distance though!

My fiance and I had a long distance relationship for about 2 and a half years – me in California and him in Holland!! The biggest perks were that I got to travel around Europe a couple of times and learned more about my own country and state by playing tourist when he would come.  Being long distance definitely makes a relationship stronger I think – you really look forward to seeing each other and really appreciate each other.

You cherish being together just that little bit more, you don’t take it for granted as much as if you were together most of the time.

You get to organise surprises easily

you get a change of scenery when you visit where the other is (sometimes nice to be away from the norm)

I also agree with the hello kiss

More likely to communicate better and talk through things with having the phone/skype as your connection to each other (a bit like huneebee said)

YES, the reunion kiss is worth all of it. I’m always telling people that long distance relationships are very romantic!

Even more than the kiss is the big hug for me! i love when he accidentally holds me just a little too tightly but i dont want him to ever let go!

i agree with you all on the reunion kiss. I also used to love making little care packages to send to him, for holidays, birthdays or just because.

the communication is another thing — the 2.5 years we spent in a LDR taught us how to TALK to each other and really do it well. when all you have is a phone call, you need to make the best of it and tell each other what’s going on. i think it’s something that still helps us now that we live together.

also, when we were living on opposite coasts, i was still in college, so i got to party with my friends like a single girl without any worry about picking up guys. which, was definitely NOT a plus on days like valentine’s or when i was missing him hard, but sometimes it was nice to just do whatever i wanted, you know?
