Surviving another Friday night


If you, like me, have dedicated a large portion of your time to travel, and spend more time traveling and stay away from your own country, you’re more than likely to meet someone overseas which is a pity, because long distance relationships don’t work, right?

During the week, I have tons of work or Mom wants me to finish some work so I’m not as focused on feeling lonely. Then Friday night comes, and while all my friends are busy planning dates or family events with their partner, I’m left wondering what shows and re-runs will be on TV or just watch some shows on Netflix or settle down for YouTube videos.

The only part I like about the weekend probably his longer chats with, but those calls still don’t make up for not having him next to me. It’s even worse when you get invited to an event, and you’re missing your “plus one.” Long-distance means that you probably won’t be able to see your partner, which means that normal couple things like dates aren’t going to be possible. Now, for those of you that manage to make a long distance relationship work, I applaud you.

At the beginning of our relationship, I lacked trust in him because we didn’t know each other too well outside of and didn’t know each other’s daily lives, interests, personalities, or much else. However, we have grown together, and today there is nobody I can trust more than him. I no longer have those irrational thoughts, and can know for certain that he will always tell me the full truth in matters.

This man has made me believe in the concept of soul mates, although he doesn’t believe in it and he has helped me through my problems and helps me become a better person and I have found hope in life through him. I have finally found somebody who accepts me for who I am, understands my faults, and helps me to repair and improve on them. He has taken my broken soul and mended it back together in way better than the original.

Trust me, long distance relationships are well worth it if you find the right person. I haven’t met a single person I have ever loved as much as I love him. And he loves me just as much, or even more so back.
