Being in a long distance relationship.

The worst thing about being in a long distance relationship is the absence of physical connection. We are humans, and as humans we are longing to be touched, to be hugged, to be kissed. But since people who are in this kind of relationship are separated by distance, they cannot do what a normal couple does. Sure, they can talk on the phone and through the internet, but somehow that is not enough. They can hear each other’s voices, they can see each other via Skype but there are no physical things involved. No holding hands. No cuddling during the cold weathers.  No make-up kisses, no forehead kisses, no cheek kisses. Kissing the computer screen I guess can’t be consider as one. No surprise hugs, no hugs from behind, no spinning hugs. Hugging their pillow pretending that it’s him/her is the only thing they can do.

And when he’s going through a really tough situation, as much as you wanted to comfort him personally and rub your hands on his back and give him a hug, you just can’t. The only thing you can do is to use comforting words and tell him that everything will be alright. If only hugs and kisses could be felt through the internet, then at least you can form some physical connection with him. Even if we say that relationships are not just about the physical stuff, still it’s an ingredient of a long, lasting relationship. Too bad, the only thing they can do is to wait for that moment when they can finally see each other personally, when they can actually kiss, hug and touch each other in person. Waiting for that day requires patience. Fuck, distance ruin beautiful things.
