 hey, i'm a bit confused and unsure. me and my boyfriend have lasted 10 months and he now asked me if it's ok to have sex. i'm 16 and he's 17 and we're kind of in a long distance relationship. we only get to see each other thrice a year. we both love each other so much but the thing is it's a tradition for Filipino's to have sex after marriage and i'm kind of convinced about that. we are now both in college and we've matured enough to know what's right and wrong. please help me! :( i'm not sure of what to say to him, if it's a YES or a NO. i love him so much and i don't want to lose him just because i didn't agree with him..help! :/

In love but never met face-to face? [June 26, 2008 @ 8:44pm]

drdata
 I am conducting a study for my doctoral dissertation looking at characteristics of individuals who are involved in online romantic relationships with people they have never met face-to-face.

If you are involved in one of these online relationships, or have been involved in one, would you be so kind as to take my survey?

http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/survey-intro.zgi?p=WEB227TRXU5ZS2
 
This is a completely anonymous survey, and no data can be traced to any particular individual.
 
I appreciate any help you can give me in acquiring participants for this research! Please contact me with any questions you may have. I’d be happy to answer them.
 
Warmly,
Landi Turner

Is anyone still here? [July 26, 2007 @ 12:44pm]

your_lifeis_now
[ mood | contemplative ]

While it doesn't look like this community has been active in a while, I hope that perhaps there still might be a couple of people watching it who might understand where I'm coming from. I've been dating the most amazing guy for the last two years. He's smart, funny, caring and treats me like a princess. Right now he's also 2700 miles apart... which is really hard. It's interesting, in the beginning of our relationship we both had a lot of fears about what the distance could do to us, especially because my BF's last relationship ended because his ex cheated on him while he was away. I'm glad that we've been able to move past that and onto the next stage of our lives.

After a lot of discussion, he has decided to move out to my coast. I'm really excited about the changes that this will bring to our relationship, although after the move we'll still be five hours apart...Still it's much more doable in terms of us seeing one another more frequently, and it will make wedding planning much easier. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone here has made the transition from being far apart to living closer (and ultimately, in the same town.) Do you have any suggestions or cautions?

Hello, people. I have a few concerns that I would like to express regarding my committed relationship with my boyfriend. They're concerns that I'd eventually like to talk to him about it, if the needs arises. But first things first, let me introduce my relationship with him briefly - we've been writing to each other for around 6 months (around 400 pages of emailing on Word Doc!), and has jumped head start into a *committed* relationship. But we shared so much of our thoughts and our lives to each other by now, I have no regrets and do not want to turn back. From what he told me, he felt the same way, that he would remain committed to me and be there for me until I push him away out of my life. Trusting him was the hardest thing I've ever done, but I decided to do it because I want to put him first before me, and that he has never given me a reason to not trust him. In fact, he made it easier and easier for me to trust him as time went on.

But here's a slight problem - and it's me, not him. With my other boyfriends, I had never been committed before. I had never cared SO much. If they sees other girl, I don't care. But I can be a possessive person, and although I think I have a good relationship with myself and I'm fairly emotionally independent under normal circumstances (where normal for me was to be single), it can be hard to have faith in our relationships sometimes. As a child, I'd cry and brawl and throw a tantrum, basically getting insanely jealous, if my mother picked up another child and hold him/her in her arms. Unfortunately, I had never rooted this jealous tendency out of me as I grew into adulthood. He has talked about the one girl who he loved to me, and told me that he would still always be there for her and care about her even if he can't have her, even if she cheated on her husband and did many bad and hurtful things. I understand that it's not his problem, that I'm simply being selfish for wanting his affections and care all for myself. I understand that frail, weak women elicits his sympathy as he have a bit of a knight complex, and that he probably can't help it. But I can't help feeling posessive, and my greatest concern is that it may impede the natural progress of our relationship. Maybe even damaging an otherwise perfect relationship in the long run.

What are your thoughts on this? Thanks for listening, girls and guys. I appreciate it.

New to this. [August 20, 2006 @ 12:45am]

xlovedefined
Hey. Well I'm brand new to this. But I thought I make a introduction. My name is Shirley and I'll be turning 20 in Sept. Well, I'm in a long distance relationship with my boyfriend whose in USMC bootcamp right now. And he has about one more month until he graduates. And I have to go away for college. I've been with him for one year and 5months. Today is actually our anniversary. Anyway, it's been really hard without him just because he's also my best friend. And sometimes the nights gets lonely. And I really miss him because he's been gone for 9 weeks now, I have 4 more weeks to go. I haven't heard from him at all but only through letters. I worry a lot about him. I hope that we make it through this.. because I know he's the one I want to end up with. Well anyway, hope everyone's doing good =)

Hey I'm new here :-) [April 23, 2006 @ 9:44am]

Hi, my name is Alex and I'm a 22-year-old girl, living in Germany. I just found this community and thought I should join it coz I'm also in a long distance relationship. His name is Jason and he's German too but lives in the US for almost 7 years now. His mom met someone on the internet from the US and when they visited him in the US, they decided to stay there and so they never came back from their vacation.^___^ Well and 2 1/2 months ago I met Jason - online.^^ On myspace.com. First we only wrote emails but then we wrote MORE emails..phoned everyday, sent messges to our cells, wrote letters and talked via live webcam chats whenever we had time...and we still do it everyday.:D On May 25th he'll come to Germany for 2 1/2 weeks to visit his grandmother and he'll stay at my place for 9 days and on July 9th, I'll go to the US to visit him for 2 1/2 weeks.:D I'm SO excited already!!!!!!! :D And if everything will work out good for us, he'll move back to Germany to live with me...it might sound weird but I really love him. I've never felt sth like that for someone I've met on the internet and I never thought that I could fall in love with someone I don't know in person.^^ But 2 of my friends/pals met their love of life on the internet and it worked! And Jason's mother also met her husband on the internet. ^___^ And the good thing is, that he can live in the US (Greencard) and Germany...and me too coz I have dual citizenship...so we can go back to the US as soon as I finished my job here.:D Well, I don't know if someone will read this but I just wanted to tell my story.:) Is there someone else who met his boyfriend/girlfriend online?
Well..have a nice Sunday everyone...c ya later.

Hey everybody:)
I'd like to introduce myself:):) My name is Jessie. I'm 16 years old and have been with my boyfriend, Aaron, for 6 months now:) For the first about 4 months we lived by each other, but right now he is away at college and can only come and visit me once a month, and this is really new for us, from going to see each other around everyday to seeing each other once a month and only being able to talk on the phone. but I guess i am lucky that its a college in Michigan. So I'm still in high-school and he's 18 and in his first year of college. So I hope I get to know everybody!!:):)

A fun idea [January 26, 2006 @ 7:23pm]

girluncensored
Something that I found while browsing the web that I thought everyone might like to try.

A Deck Of Love Letters
A couple of years ago, I was involved in a long-distance relationship. Sending letters in the mail was one of my favorite ways to communicate with her, but I also wanted to do something extra special for her. While I was at the store, I bought a fine-tip permanent marker and a deck of poker cards. Each day I would take a card out and write a short love letter on the face of the card and mail it to her. Fifty-two days later, and she had a complete deck of love letters. Whenever she was feeling lonely, all she had to do was take out the deck of cards and play solitaire to be constantly reminded of how much I loved her.


On another note, I'm sure no one realizes this but I am the mod here and I'm happy to announce that I gave the layout a new wonderful look. I ditched this community some time ago but I'm going to try to get some new members and spruce things up around here. Tell your friends about us, let's make this fun!

another newbie??!?! [November 09, 2005 @ 8:27am]

breblo
yes, it's true...i'm new.

my name is brianna. i'm 23. i live in milwaukee, wi. i recently met a boy...well...a man. met him online a month ago. i'm literally head over heels in love. which is incredibly weird because i'm not the type to know someone for 2 days and secretly begin plans of having babies. regardless, i've never in my life met anyone like this man. we are ridiculously compatible. i've had a "checklist" of sorts that i keep in the back of my mind of things that i am looking for in a partner. so far he's matched everything and actually added a couple things that i've forgotten about. his name is edward...which...come on...you have to admit is such an adorable name. he is the most kind, caring, considerate, sensitive man i've ever met. (though i may be biased.) he's 27.

but...

he lives in birmingham, al.
he's divorced twice.
he has two kids.

ack!!!!!

i can honestly say that the divorces and kids bothered me alot. i was upfront with him about it. he completely understood it and has said on numerous occasions that he respects my feelings and decision if i can't seem to get over that. now, i've thought about it alot. talked to a few people about it. the kids, i'm over. i have friends who are not married and have children. i can't hold that against him, otherwise i'd be holding it against my friends. which isn't fair to anyone. besides, i have a 7 year old little brother who i absolutely love and i know i'd be able to handle having kids around on weekends. but the divorce issue has be a little worried. i've spoken with him about the two marriages. the first he explained he was much too young. she was 19 and he was 21. they married because of his daughter. they eventually began to hate each other due to money problems and evidently she is extremely verbally abusive. the 2nd marriage broke off due to complete conflict of interests. his wife was much more interested in listening to her family and having them make decisions for her instead of edward and her making decisions for themselves. they still get along, they just realized they weren't for each other. *deep breath* am i rambling?

i need some outside advice. preferably from people i do not know...such as you folks! :o) i am 100% serious that i am in love with him. he is everything i could ever want. granted, we are not rushing into making decisions or plans, aside from me visiting in february. we both agree that we have to be around each other to see if being together would be something that is indeed the correct choice. he's stated that he's hesitent to ever get married again unless he knows the person is someone he can see spending the rest of his life with. and as for me, i do NOT plan on getting divorced.

sorry for bombarding your lj page with this long, drawn out story...but i need advice. am i crazy? am i being ridiculous? should i keep my guards up completely? should i be open and just follow my heart? this is so difficult for me.

i appreciate all your advice/help/suggestions/etc.

Ok, Jason's making me really uncomfortable. I mean I'm perfectly fine being friends but I can't handle the constant uncomfortable feeling he gives me now. Like there's no need for him to touch me at all and he does and I talked to Lucas about it and he said he'll say something but I think that'll make it worse. Any Advice. In other news, I have a friend who goes to Kent State in Ohio, it's a boy, I was supposed to go see Lucas next weekend but he's "busy" and the boy from Kent State, Dave, was like come visit me Emma please I want you to be here. He's just a friend swear to God but he and Lucas never meshed...Should I even bring it up to Lucas? Lucas and I argued at like 5AM...I made the decision to drink last night because I was angry with him, we have a drinking rule and its just let the other person know you're ok
well when I called I was bitchy to himbecause I was mad at him so we argued, I don't really worry about the arguments because Renee a friend of mine who just recently married her high school sweeheart made it through and LDR in college and she said they fought like cats and dogs the first semester. He's nuts though I swear to God if I cried within an hour of when I talk to him he can tell, and he gets upset because I'm upset...but sometimes I don't know why but this morning he left me the cutest voicemail it was like " Emmmmmmmaa...I know you're probably not feeling well right now, so just go back to bed and take it easy today no crying and eat something I love you more than you know **Kiss** bye Kiddo"...everyone is in these communities is lucky...we're so loved!

Boston was incredible, Lucas is incredible we left early Friday moring and arrived in Boston around 10:30, Our hotel was amazing and people looked at my dad and step-mom like they were crazy, they were traveling with My twin brother ,his girlfriend, Lucas and myself. So basically the entire flight and the whole time in the airport I was on the verge of tears. It's amazing that just sitting there or standing ther and being able to hold his hand and hug him and have him give me a kiss on the top of the head or wink at me or do the little things that he knows only I can see make me feel so icredible. So at our hotel my parents stayed in a room and then Jordan ( my twin brother), Cassidy(his gf), Lucas and I stayed in another room. The first night there we (Lucas and I) Read more...Collapse )

Hello everyone, I'm back :).


I went to Texas for my boyfriends graduation from Air Force Basic Training, of course being that I am only 16 it was hell. I couldn't find a place to stay, since I was alone, and I couldn't get on base alone either. Eventually I found a youth hostel, and my boyfriend was allowed to sign me in on base for the days he had town pass and base lib. I didn't get to see the graduation parade because he wouldn't have been able to sign me in early in the morning, but I did get to see him a few times which was well worth it. His flight also got Honor Flight, so I'm even more proud of him. :). He has to stay in Texas for 3 more weeks, for the beginning of his tech school, which scares me because they're supposed to be getting a level 5 hurricane down there. There have only been 3 level 5's recorded ever, so I'm nervous. I hope everything's ok :-/. I hate being so far away from him. I do plan on going out to see him for one of my school vacations in February or April at his tech school, and he does come home for Christmas but I'm not sure exactly when. Anyways, I did have a decent time in Texas. I went to the Alamo and the Riverwalk and saw the worlds largest cowboy boots, which was a little strange...but now I'm home and back to reality, without him :(. <3 <3.

Hey, I just joined the community and thought I should update and introduce myself.


My name is Bethany, and I'm 16. Of course I feel like a typical teenager when I say it, but I don't act like most 16 year olds, I've grown up a little bit fast. My boyfriend is in the Air Force, he left on July 11th to go to Basic Military Training. He's also had a bit of a tough life and he's really mature, but we seemed to have brought out the fun in each other. As of September 4th we will have been together for 4 months. I miss him like crazy, and I worked as hard as I could to earn the money to go to his Basic Training graduation (which I am, in a week). I fully support him in all he does, and all I want is to see him happy. I have never loved another person like this, whole heartedly and entirely. He joined the A.F. because he couldn't afford to go to college, he had a hard life and wanted to get away from most of it so he joined when he was in junior year of high school, and then graduated this year and left. Well...I'll be posting more, I didn't want to make this TOO long. Sorry about the length, but thanks for listening!! I just wanted everyone to know my situation and to know me, so there you go. :) Look forward to meeting you all.


Bethany
