Today my Boyfriend or Best Friend of 6 months and I began our LDR… I had to leave him in Colorado after spending the weekend helping him set up his new apartment with his dad and step-mom and am returning to Iowa.
I know its gets easier as time goes by – we are looking at 18 months apart while I finish school – but it just sucksssssss.
I cried myself to sleep in his arms last night and was just sad all morning before I left. He and his family have been amazing, kind and supportive (and he told me that after i left he was a mess).
I’m going to miss him like crazy and I’m not looking forward to walking down the street alone, or grocery shopping without him and all the everyday errands people do together, but I know its going to be worth it.
He told me he wants to marry me (he wants to meet my dad before he proposes i think – March next year – my dad lives in Australia) and that he’s always here, but this whole thing just feels weird, sad and frustrating.
Our next planned time together was going to be in October (when he has time off teaching at his college) but we think its going to have to be sooner than that.
I hate being away from him. Its going to be hard, but we are going to have such a strong relationship at the end of it all.
So, expect to see more of me over the coming months (and years)
My heart goes out to all of you doing this too.
