I met a guy on here a few months ago, and we have been nonstop talking since then. There are a few complications like the fact that he lives in New Jersey and I live in Cali and the time zones are different, so we hardly get time to talk. I have caught feelings for him, and it makes me angry that I would let myself do that when it wont happen. He’s also a year and some months older than me but I feel like he’ll get tired of me. I dont even know if he feels the same. It hurts sometimes, feeling the way I do about him. But, theres nothing I can do. I dont really know what I am asking for here, but I just need to know if anyone out there is in a long distance relationship. Does it hurt so much and does it even work out?

You can’t stop the way you feel. Sometimes you’ll fall for someone even if you don’t want to. In a conversation you could try to casually bring it up and see what his thoughts are. You could also talk about random topics and drop questions such as what his opinion on long distance relationships is. A long distance relationship is difficult, but not impossible. What is important is trust, you’ll have to trust each other to remain loyal. Secondly and equally important, communication. It’s necessary to maintain a decent communication to make it work. You could call him regularly or even have video chats on skype for example. If you two have been talking nonstop for a few months, it is plausible that he maybe has some feelings for you too that go beyond friendship. Talk it through with him and see how he feels.

I’m in a long distance relationship, and I won’t lie, it’s hard. There will be times when all you want is to be with the person. But don’t let that discourage you! It’s worth it, because when you DO get to be with them, you can appreciate it a lot more.
