As much as I bitch and whine and complain about how much being in a long distance relationship sucks, there are definitely some aspects of it that you don’t typically get in a “traditional relationship”.
I love the feeling of anticipation the few days before our visits.
I love that first hug after we’ve been apart. I love thinking about how our time together is just starting.
I love falling asleep in his arms, head on his shoulder, cuddled up on his furry chest, lulled to sleep by the sound of his breathing.
I love middle of the night kisses and caresses and sleepy “I love yous”.
I love waking up giggling together about some private shared joke.
I love making the most of our time together, so it never feels wasted.
I love taking the time to appreciate what we have, and knowing without a doubt, that the struggles are worth it.
