However, when Nick’s profile came along, I read his bio, and without question, I made the first move and messaged him first. He lives in Tennessee, and I’m in Texas, so we’ve been doing the long-distance thing since the very beginning *insert eye roll emoji*.
When Nick and I spoke for the first time, we automatically clicked!
Whether you prefer text messages, IMs, emails, telephone calls, or video chatting, keeping in touch is the most important thing you can do in a long-distance relationship.
There are even smartphone apps that allow long-distance couples to share photos, videos, send voice messages, and more. A cute handwritten letter or small unexpected gift goes a long way to making your LD partner feel loved and appreciated.
Hey y’all, My name is Raquel (pseudonym), and I am 24 years young from the great state of Texas!
I have been talking to a guy named Nick (pseudonym) for almost six months now, and things seem to be flowing nicely between us, I think. I usually never put myself out there, and I never used a dating site up until that point, so even then, I wasn’t getting much out of it and was losing hope.
One that sounds a lot like English but has subtle nuances that leave you scratching your head.
A desire to be loved, a desire to be accepted exactly the way that we are.Just be sure to agree on what forms of communication you’ll use most.If you hate phone calls and your partner prefers to chat that way, you may set yourself up for disagreements if you don’t work it out ahead of time.He isn’t a fan of the long-distance situation at all, and he has a young child from a previous relationship, which isn’t conducive to him moving to Texas to be with me — understandable, for sure. We have gone from talking, texting and having Face Time dates every single day to only a few days a week. Ultimately, in a perfect world, I want to be in a committed relationship with Nick.I love Tennessee, and Nick and I have talked about me moving out there to be closer to him. I’ve been a single woman for almost four years now, and Nick has been single for a year. ” question, he said we can make it “official” when/if I move out to Tennessee. But…Around month four of talking and getting to know each other, I caught him referring to me as his “good friend” to his friends and family, and he has also referred to me as his “good friend” to me as well. He has openly admitted that he’s scared of how strong our connection is and that he does have trust issues from previous relationships. I understand these things take time, but is there a future? He’s a good guy with a good heart — I just need answers!We’d talk for hours on end, multiple times a day, for weeks and weeks.
