Your Long Distance Relationship archive
It was a little over 2 years
ago when I first met Molly. I only had the internet for maybe about 3 or
4 months, so I was just getting used to the AOL instant messenger. Well
on one cold October afternoon, a screen name popped up and asked if I
wanted to talk to that certain name. I accepted and had a brief, boring
talk with Molly. At this time, I had my own girlfriend here in new
jersey, and definitely wasn't interested in having a long distance one.
After maybe a month passed, the girl I had here broke up with me, and
everything seemed to be so dark and depressing for me. Then molly and I
started to talk more frequently. She was the light in my almost clouded
world. We talked on and on, about pretty much everything. Soon, we
exchanged pictures and talked on the phone a few times. She seemed like
the friend i never had. And even though I started to grow close to her,
I went out with another girl. Being with this other girl made me see how
great of a person Molly really is.
Finally around in March, me and the other girl ended the relationship,
and I drew closer to Molly. We both felt a little something special for
each other, but was kind of embarrassed to say anything, in fear of
But one day, Molly said something that changed my world forever, the
most powerful phrase any girl can say to a guy.....i love you. As I read
this on my computer, my heart seemed to lighten, my spirits rose, my
blood started pumping.
Not to long after this, on March 9th, 2002, I asked her to go out with
me....she said yes within 2 seconds.
The first few months were hard, and pretty odd to get used to. I had a
lot of temptations, and even offers to be with other girls, but I felt
something towards Molly, and I wanted to be with her. We started getting
on the phone a lot more frequently, which our parents didn't like one
bit. Almost every night, we'd try to sneak in a "good night, I love you"
talk on the phone.
But being away from each other did have an impact on the both of us. We
each had our sad, jealous, and outright mad moments. Being made fun of
by our friends also didn't help any. Most just couldn't understand our
relationship. But even through all our hardships, our hearts kept
telling us to stay together, and thankfully, we've kept it that way.
We've only met in person one time in June. Her
parents drove her out to see me for a good 3 days, which for the both of us,
were the best of our lives. The moment she stepped out of her car, I could
feel a surge of energy go through my body, like a sense of enlightenment, like
nothing could possibly go wrong at that very moment. The 3 days she was over
here, we were so happy. It was love at first sight all over again. Those days
made me realize what love is truly about. And It'll never end.
The both of us actually talk about
what's going to happen after highschool,
like us going to college together. And me moving to Illinois to be closer.
Marriage has also been a big topic too. If I tell you how old we really are,
you'll think were insane....but Molly and I feel something that's definitely
real and true. Nothing can ever tear us apart. I wish that everybody could
experience what I have, but love like this is just unbelievable. Nobody can
ever understand what kind of connection we have.
To anyone who reads this, don't be afraid to try new things...you never know
if your one true love will be waiting for you on the other side of the
computer. And one last thing.... I love you Molly, thank you for making my life
worthwhile. I don't know where I'd be without you hunny....
