For those of you who don’t know, I am in a long distance relationship with this amazing girl I met at boarding school the one year I attended.
When we met, she instantly became my best friend. All of our free time at school was spent together and when I was going through a really rough time in my life, she was there for me. She knew when to talk and when to just sit by my side in silence or just listen when I needed to vent. I would not have gotten out of that funk without her.
Now that I don’t get to see her everyday, other than Skype and FaceTime, I have definitely grasped the meaning of the saying, “absence makes the heart grow fonder.” I miss seeing her in person like crazy. When she and her mom came to visit this past Christmas-break it was the best few days of my life, but then she had to go back to school.
This is our first Valentine’s Day as a couple, but we’re not really that into it. Not because of the distance, but our 1 year anniversary is literally two weeks and a day away, so we felt like going all out for Valentine’s Day wasn’t necessary. I did, however, still send her a card with flowers and candy and in return I found my own Valentine’s package in the mail today (good timing US Postal Service).
Not bad for a first Valentine’s Day if I say so myself. But I’m definitely more excited for what I have planned for our anniversary.
I hope everyone else enjoys their Valentine’s Day, single or not, show some love!
