Long-Distance Love by ririnyan Long-Distance Love by ririnyan
If you know someone in a long-distance relationship, give them a hug. They need it.

This stamp goes out to :iconwadoko:, my transatlantic fiance and :iconglitterwing: and :iconsemental: who're in the same boat as us.

Long distance relationships can work, we're proof. :)

Is being 3,923 miles away from your loved one bad?

Very true. <3 I'm proof with my own lover. I'm in Canada, he's in the United Kingdom. But we just got engaged after almost four years of being together and we can't wait for the day we're together at last again. <33333333333

We're transatlantics too. Together for a year and a half now and just got engaged this summer.
Yeah, it's tough but if it's true love you can make it work, no matter how far apart you are.

Thank you so much for this wonderful stamp. :hug:
Darkeiya Featured By Owner Sep 24, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Such a wonderful stamp! I can relate; my love of seven years and counting lives all the way in Illinois. But we get to see each other at least once a year, so we're good!

I've been engaged to my fiance from Europe (I'm in the US) for about a year and a half now. The visa process is tough, being apart for so long is tougher, but love will find a way, and once we're together it'll have been worth the wait!

Long distance relationships are unique and requires patience, time and effort in order to keep in touch.
It may not be as easy as the face to face contact, however, through consistent messages and emails does help. The distance doesn't seem as bad; today it seems that many people have long-distance friendships and it's a wonderful thing to have in our lives. I know I have a dear friend in India and he's a wonderful person and I've known him for a year and a half. It's great to share thoughts and feelings and feel that connection over distance. :aww:

It's easy to respect Long Distance Love/Relationships especially when you're in one yourself. It's very hard for other, especially those who are not or have never been in one. The key is patience, understanding, communication, dedication, and pure love and commitment. Distance doesn't matter in love, love matters in love.

It's true! It's so true! ;__;

My boyfriend and I met on a mission trip three years ago, stayed in touch afterwards, fell in love, and we've been together for the past three years. And we haven't even seen each other since we met! ...good God, you're right, I do need a hug... DX

This stamp is amazing! Thank you for making it! :thumbsup: :heart: :thumbsup:
ririnyan Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
What sort of mission trip was it? ^_^ I really hope you get to see each other again soon. *hugs*
ChibiNomad Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011  Student Traditional Artist
Ohh, we were at a Native American reservation in South Dakota. His church youth group from Iowa came, then mine from Minnesota, and a couple other groups. We were only toether for like, a week, but it was long enough for us to become friends.

I met my boyfriend on a christian youth camp myself. I know what it's like ^^ I miss him loads. :/

I love you for making this stamp.

Up until just this weekend, my mom and sister were skeptical of my relationship with :iconmr-malkov: just because they've only heard negative stories of how they supposedly don't work. I've been with him for a year and finally got to see him on saturday and let me tell you I've never been nearly as happy in my entire life as I have been this entire weekend- it's an overwhelming emotion. Prior to this meeting and us being in a relationship, we were (still are) and have been friends for over five years now.

We live only 5 hours apart, it feels so close yet so far. The meeting was worth it and I look foreward to going down to see him in April.
ririnyan Featured By Owner Mar 9, 2011
I really hope you two get to see each other more often soon then! :)

My boyfriend lives in another country, and I'll only be able to see him once a year for two weeks :(
That kinda sucks...

I love this stamp, I'm in a long distance relationship. I'm in South Carolina and My love is in Ohio. Only 9 hours away, but we're both too poor to go see each other now, but the wait is going to be worth it after high school.

this is wonderful
TimelessReference Featured By Owner Jun 4, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
this if great for me and my girl.
AJuiceBoxFox Featured By Owner May 15, 2010
This stamp is perfect. My boyfriend sent it to me in a note, I turned bright pink and went 'awwww. Yes!'

We haven't been together long, but we are in fact in love. My really really good friend intoduced us over facebook and we got to talking. Things started out rough, but now we're as happy as can be.

We plan to try to get together this summer, but who know now things will go. ^^

Thank you so so much for this stamp!
zealferal Featured By Owner May 13, 2010
i :heart: this stamp.
you said you liked the little stories the stamp brought you???
well, heres mine:
i'm 14 he's a year younger.
a friend of mine's bestie was really lonely and so was i... so he introduced us and on valentines day this year i finally plucked up the courage to ask him out!!!
i'm really glad i did, we're like two lost souls bound together...
remove the physical contact (ie: lust) and two people generally form a much stronger bond.
im SO glad theres only a four-hour car journey between us, and every relationship has its good and bad points, so why does distance have that much stigma attatched???
anyway, we're both going through hard times at the moment but we support each other. he's like mr. darcy without the angst!!!
there is someone for everyone out there, you just have to look very hard to find them. and once you do, there is no garuntee that theyll even speak the same language as you.
the beauty of it is that you are both going through the same sense of distance, which, i think, brings you even closer together.
best wishes.

good luck everyone, and remember: "absence makes the heart grow fonder"

Sarez Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2010
I thought it'd be stupid to do a search for 'long distance relationship' on dA, but this stamp proved me wrong. Thank you so much for making it~

Just being nosey through the existing comments, I'd like to point out hearing you and your partner have been together for so long gave me a little bit of the faith back. It's such a relief to hear all the heartache can be worth it~ Congratulations for making something so difficult work so well~ Actually, a big ol' thumbs up to everyone that's shared their stories here. I hope everyone is lucky enough to overcome their distance~
ririnyan Featured By Owner Apr 15, 2010
You're welcome, and thank you for your lovely comments. ^_^

I feel strongly about it because there are so many people who will just tell you "oh no, long distance relationships never work" and that's not true. You have to have a superhuman amount of strength and committment, but you end up valuing the person you have so much more at the end of it all. It's not impossible, it is hard, but the kind of people who make it work are the special ones.
HeartlessKai Featured By Owner Feb 12, 2010
I agree... if only me and my love were around the same age.

Yeah, we're separated my two things, age and distance.

it's really romeo and juliet.
ririnyan Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010
Is it a big age gap?
HeartlessKai Featured By Owner Feb 14, 2010
Not big so to speak, it's more like it seems big. 13 and 17. but if we were 90 and 94, nobody would care.
Xerolien Featured By Owner Feb 11, 2010  Hobbyist Writer
I can use this one two, even though I'm not in a long distance "relationship".
We're on a break while she's on the other side of the earth as an exchange-student (Her idea).

However it's been 6 month now (5 more to go!) and we have both said no to several offers from others and she just wrote to me saying that she loves me, I replied the same and without her knowing, there's a valentines card coming her way through the mail :D, so it's still "Long distance love" as the stamp directly says ;)

I support long distance relationships, keep it going! And long distance love ;)

-Peace Out. :peace:
