Soo…. I guess I’m back. I was hoping once school started and we started working on making our LDR a little better I wouldn’t bring this stuff up and I would avoid talking about it, just trusting that he was going to take care of everything on his own. Didn’t realize how hard that was going to be. Started off badly, but got better. Think I made a point/it got across. Just so frustrating when it feels like you have to beg for something that you and your family feels like is a natural next step circa a year ago. I know a lot of people say that they just ignore how their family feels and they are trusting that it’s all happening on their own timeline, but it’s hard. My parents really care about me, all their concerns are my insecurities, too. So when I talk to them about it, it really makes me worry even more that this isn’t going to work out, that I’m compromising too much just to make this relationship work. Sigh. Not looking for advice or answers, just a little frustrated, and it’s only a week into the new year. hopefully this gets easier.

Aww…I took a mini-break from WB, too. I was on vacation so I decided to stay off WB to enjoy the vaca with the beau. // LDR are very hard but it also helps you maintain your independence. I know quite a few people who look at me with amazement that I’m in a LDR. I think my bf is more invested in this relationship more than anyone I’ve ever dated who lived in the same state as me. // Good luck, Missy!

Glad to see you back, but sorry that you’re having a tough time. Seems like a lot of us on the waiting board go through phases where waiting is really hard, and then suddenly things improve and we are more relaxed and upbeat about waiting. Hopefully things get easier soon.
