Hey everyone! Idk who will read this but I thought I should share my experience with long distance relationships. As the internet world is growing larger and larger their are more people finding their lovers from far and wide and have an issue of time zones and long plane flights.

Just a little intro into my story as I know that many of you probably don't know anything about me or where I am from. I am from Australia and my boyfriend lives eight hours away from me in a small country town with literally no phone service. I am in my final year of school and am a huge fan of rowing and snowboarding which is where my boyfriend and I met.

It wasn't long after we met that he asked me to be his and at first I actually said no because I didn't think I could deal with the distance or cope with school work, but two days later I told him that I had changed my mind and said yes. Little did I know I would fall completely in love with this kid and finally have a stable relationship. Things were easy at the start. We would FaceTime everyday in the holidays, text non stop and snapchat every moment we were both missing out on. As the school term rolled in work was building and it was hard to find time to fit in a FaceTime call or even a normal phone call. Plane flights are nearly $500 return for an hour and fifteen minute flight. At my age with no job this has been really hard to find the cash to fly and see him. So many things in this relationship are challenges which is something that is very new to me.

This is the thing about long distance relationships there is a larger period of time when you are not with your other half. Trust me it sucks, I miss my baby every moment I'm not with him but cherish every moment that I get to spend with him. I cry when I read the letters he sends me, I cry when he tells me how much he misses me. He always tells me how beautiful my smile is and how he never likes to see me upset. He treats me like an absolute princess and always puts me before himself. I wish I could spend every moment with him, I wish I could cuddle up next to him every single night but the reality is he is there and I am here.

I believe our relationship is stronger than any other because despite all this distance I couldn't love him anymore than I do. The distance shows perseverance and we do have a rough end date on the distance but between then and now we still have to keep doing what we are doing. I can't you all that long distance relationships aren't good because I believe that it is the best thing to ever happen to me and I hope that anyone in a long distance relationship has a great time.

Btw this is my first article so I have no idea what I am really doing.
Thanks guys xoxo
