    To my long-distance friend

    We met on the internet. Not on a dating site or anything but the internet nonetheless. We had a connection right away. You said it, I felt it. After sort of talking once in awhile, last week we started talking every day. I got to hear your voice, see your face. We learned about each other and I am still hungry to know everything about you.

    But the distance between us is huge. Sometimes I can’t wrap my head around how far you are from me. I know it bothers you, and scares you. You say you like me too much and you’re worried it might not be worth it, since we may never meet.

    I want to meet you, I really do. I’ve always wanted to go to your country and now I have another reason to go. But even if we can’t, I hope we can be friends. I would like us to be more but I understand your misgivings. However, I’ve never met anyone like you. We have so much in common and yet enough things are different too. We want the same thing and we see it in each other. Please don’t shrug it off just because of how far apart we are.

    I’m scared, my heart is in danger. I can feel myself getting way too attached to you. I hope you don’t give up on me. I want to let you know I have no intention of giving up on you, not until you ask me to.

    I miss you all the time. Please don’t give up just yet and don’t be afraid.

      This exact thing happened to me. We met on Facebook, not some dating site. We were 1800 miles apart– a 20-hour drive, or hundreds or thousands of dollars worth of plane tickets.

      We knew we had a connection. We knew there was something there that no one else had. But it took two years, two break-ups, a cheating incident, and lots of heartbreak before we got to be together. We live together now and are so happy…but it was a huge struggle to get here. Sometimes when you’re so far apart, it makes it hard for one person to really realize the relationship you have is “real”, that it is a real person with real feelings and a real heart on the other end of their text message.

      Be careful with your heart. I’m not telling you to give up, but do be careful. It does not matter how much you trust someone. Just…guard your heart.
