I live in Cali and he is in TX. I'm so happy about this, it's been a long wait. I have a LDR blog but it probably will be changing not sure what to change it to mind you but I do want to keep it LDR but a happily ever after blog.

Congratulations!! My best wishes for you and your boyfriend in the very near future. <3

justagianthomo asked: I've been in an LDR with my high school girlfriend for the last seven months. She's back stateside while I'm stationed in Okinawa (: Things have been great so far. No major problems yet, but it's still nice to hear other people's stories and know we're not the only ones. I wish you luck (:

Thanks for sharing your story -I’m glad to hear and you’re both doing well. Stay safe in Okinawa and I hope that you and her will be reunited again soon. :)

Anonymous asked: I love your blog!!! I've been in LDR for almost 7 months now. I live in Australia, he lives in the States. I have a question though. He might be visiting me in March and I'm starting to get nervous that he might not like me in person and I'm scared that we will not like each other when we meet. We connect really well through texts and skype though. We have always been comfortable with the way present ourselves to each other. No fancy clothing, we can just throw on t-shirts and jeans and

Part 2 of Question: we are good to go. I told him about my concern and he told me not to worry. Do you think we will be okay? Thanks!

Answer: 
My Dear Reader,


Your boyfriend has already reassured you to not worry -my first piece of advise would echo the same. No one can accurately predict what the physical dynamic and chemistry are like between two people -that’s part of the beauty, and the mystery. :) If the two of you already enjoy a well established connection, then it’s very likely that your bonding experience will be easier and smoother.

My second piece of advise is simple: Be yourself. You mentioned that the two of have “always been comfortable with the way [you] present ourselves to each other.” If he is a person worthy of your time and affection, he would like you for the real you, the jeans-and-tee you. Because at the end of the day, we can’t hide our true selves forever and we owe it to our own happiness to express exactly who we are. If he doesn’t like the real you, then why would you ever want someone like that in the first place, right?

So. All my best to you and yours. Let me know how it goes! 


Regards,
E.

The Thread That Binds Us

Dear Reader,


According to ancient Chinese myth, the Gods create invisible red threads which connect those who are destined to meet -the thread may stretch or tangle with time, place and circumstance, but it will never break.

If you’ve been following our story, then you’re already aware that L. and I haven’t had the smoothest of roads. In our 20 months together, we’ve fought, been on breaks, and have even discussed ending our relationship. 

But in the face of every difficulty, we somehow emerge more loving, more persistent, and more sure of our strength together.

"How rare and special it all is," he would gently remind me, "the unavoidability of us being together.” How extraordinary, when L. had captured me on video in New York three months before we would exchanged our first words. How amazing, when he was traveling to Tokyo and I had no intentions of traveling, but yet we somehow ended up in the same hostel in San Francisco. How undeniable, when just three days of conversations late into the night blossomed into a long distance friendship, into an international relationship, and now, into almost two years together. 

Some call it fate.

Some call it coincidence. 

But all we know is this inexplicable sense of belonging withing each other’s embrace…binded by love, the thing that ties us all. 


-E.
