Most annoying things about LDRs3:41 AM
Duh! Of course this is the most annoying part of any LDR. You don't get to see your other half when you want to Without some serious planning.
It’s all about the Money, Money, Money
LDRs are expensive! All the money that you spend on one visit and everything you do while you’re together can sometimes add up. I think we have spent more on one visit together than some couples do in a month.
Friend: "OMG, I haven't seen Patrick in two hours! I miss him so much!
Me: "I haven't seen my boyfriend in 2 months."
Singles aren't the only ones who hate Valentine's day. Seeing happy couples around all the time turns you into an instant grinch. Hanging out with your friends and their bf/gf makes you feel more alone than you already are.
Selective Amnesia"Why aren't you dating someone? I saw this cute guy I think you'll like." These are usually questions from well-meaning friends who seem to forget that I have a boyfriend. Which doesn't surprise me since a lot of my friends have only heard of The BF but never seen him in the flesh. And once you’re seen around campus without a guy for so long, people start to assume you’re single.
This goes with the selective amnesia. If people only hear you talking about your other half, but never actually get to meet him/her in person, they’ll start to think you’re faking it. A lot of The BF’s coworkers actually thought I was fake, despite the pictures of us together on his phone. I actually had to talk to one of them to prove I was real.
Just because The BF finally comes back home for the first time in three months doesn't mean the world is going to stop, no matter how much I want it to. You're still going to work odd hours and teachers aren't going to extend the deadline of your next paper. Even when you want to do nothing but cuddle and binge on Netflix together, your conflicting schedule is going to put all that on hold.
Friends vs Boyfriends
Some of my close friendsgo to school out of town, and they usually come home right when The BF comes home. It’s always a toss up to see which one I’ll actually be hanging out with, but someone always loses in the end. And I’m kinda sad to say it’s usually the friend.
So I DON’T Creep. Yeahhhh
I have actually had a few people try to push me to do a little creeping (cheating) since The BF would never know. Which is really sad and shameful on their part (some of them where in relationships themselves) but this is an option that I would never do. If I knew what I was getting to when we first started dating. Besides, if I wanted someone else, I’d just dump him and move on.
