Now this is just my personal opinion and I’m sorry if you disagree 🙋❤️
The way I see relationships between people is in different stages. For example, me and my boyfriend survived a long distance relationship for a year and now we’re happily living together. But sometimes I miss the distance yet I use to hate it! I don’t know what others say, but I believe the first part of a relationship is always the best. It’s the part where you’re getting to know each other, learning new things about each other, constantly smiling when their name comes up on your phone, nervous about seeing them and so on. I loved that stage. I see that as stage 1.
After that you get use to each other and start seeing them as more than a partner/girlfriend/boyfriend etc. You then start being yourself around them and knowing nearly everything about them but no quite everything. You may or may have not met their parents yet it all depends on whom.
Next stage after that, is the stage in at, 2 years on and we’re still together despite the distance we had at the beginning and the fact that all our friends hated us for being together. Me and my boyfriend id say are at the stage of past showing affection to each other all day every day, we know each other inside out and it’s routine having each other by our sides all day everyday. I think before anyone gets into a serious relationship they need to live their life, be young and do what they want to do more importantly and be your own #1 before settling down. There’s a lot of things I regret not doing and I’m now in my 20s, but truth be told I wanted to be living with my boyfriend at that age of 18, but I’m glad we had the distance and the wait for that to happen but now I wouldn’t want it any other way.
There are so many people in long distance relationships and it is an over all struggle. It makes you cherish every moment of every second that you spend with them. I’m now so use to my boyfriend living with me I wouldn’t have it any other way, I’m just grateful I’ve got him. I thought the distance would tear us apart but we made it and now we’ve been living together for a year now & it’s still great. Well, apart from the lack of affection and effort we occasionally put in. Not to even mention the sex that’s lacking 😂🙈it all happens ❤️
