Dating a guy with a long distance girlfriend
But, I always feel nervous about giving any kind of advice, because every relationship is different – and long distance relationships are SO hard and fierce and all-or-nothing… All I can talk about is my own experience, so here goes!I met Mr Nice Guy when I was 16 and living in England.I hate remembering the ‘long-distance’ stuff, but I LOVE that it worked out (and mostly that it’s over and now we have a regular-distance-relationship).And as much as I hated the ‘long-ness’, it helped (/forced) us to sort through a lot of relationship issues and laid a really strong foundation for the rest of our lives together.
I spent 95% of my time waiting for the other 5% of my time to arrive. Everyday, I woke up and asked myself if I still loved Mr Nice Guy, if I still wanted him to be MY Mr Nice Guy and the answer was always ‘yes’.
You're lucky if you see him more then four or five times a year. Don't even get me started about the sexual frustration that comes along with this relationship. When I went to West Point a few weeks ago for a formal event, the only physical contact I could have with my cadet was having our arms linked.
