Long Distance SUCKS

Long distance is hard. It’s much harder than I thought it would be. I am glad for technology and the ability to keep in touch with A throughout the day. I often send him the most mundane things – images, videos – over WhatsApp. He has seen so many images of my dogs, my clothes, things I’ve bought, food I’ve made. I’m just trying to keep him “in the loop,” so to speak.

The one thing that has been good though is that I have no trust issues with this man. There are no alarm bells, or anything that would even suggest there’s something else going on down in Jamaica than what I’ve been told. When I call him, I reach him, every time. If he’s with people he will still talk to me, and on video no less. And when he’s out with friends he will often hop on the free wifi and call me via Skype to talk. A man with something to hide would not behave this way – I should know, I’ve been with enough men who had something to hide!

Regardless, the distance is hard. There’s a lot to be said for being able to just touch someone. It’s also expensive to call the Caribbean, and sometimes Skype is not an option. I’m scared to see my upcoming phone bill actually – the first week he was gone we blew through 600 minutes of airtime, and that doesn’t factor in the time spent talking over wifi. At $0.25/minute that can really add up.

It’s all worth it though….and only 44 more days to go before I’m in Jamaica!

  1. I hear you on long distance; It totally sucks! The nice thing is that you’ll be seeing him soon. What’s even nicer is that you are both so open to each other and the distance. I’ve got a feeling that you will both be just fine 🙂
    Try viber, gmail hangouts and tango then you don’t need to spend on calls and you can use that money to visit each other.

  2. Long distances sucks when one gets ‘thirsty’. But i guess when one finds something worthwhile one is willing to take the pain because the pleasure is oh so sweet. I know I am in a LDR too. You will be strong, all the best.
