Living life in the carpool lane..

Archive for April 26th, 2009

I just got back from a very fun “boyfriend weekend” in the city that he lives in.

It was a fun weekend, and whenever I spend time with him, it makes it so much harder to leave.. or to watch him leave..

It’s especially hard when you know that you may not see each other for a whole month due to both of your busy schedules..

We both knew what we were going to get into when we first met.. and we both decided to continue dating.  I’ve always figured our distance was a good thing.  The distance prevented us from really getting tired of each other too soon.  The distance really allowed our relationship a healthy slow pace.  With us both being burned by our past relationships.. it’s nice to be able to take it a little slower than what we (especially me) are usually used to.

The distance was also good because it gave us a better appreciation of each other and the relationship.  We make the most of our time together and we know not to take each other for granted.  Every weekend we get to have together is special and we know that if God allows us to be together, that we will not take our relationship for granted because we know what we had gone through in the beginning.

Absence DOES make the heart grow fonder..

As good as the distance is.. there are also the bad parts..

Missing him is hard at times.. sometimes.. all I want is a nice comforting hug from him at the end of a hard day.. and it’s just not there..”Scheduling” time to spend with him is hard when you see every other couple easily going out or hanging out.. If we want to do something or go somewhere.. we have to “make a weekend” for it.. we can’t just go when ever we please..It’s getting harder and harder to say goodbye whenever the weekends are over..

I know that if God permits.. we will take the hard experiences we’ve had over this time.. and cherish it.. if we can survive this distance.. I’m sure we can survive a lot more..

By the way.. today (April 26) is the one-year anniversary of our first date.. we went to Disneyland..
