LDR Pride
mymyganda
I'm not really knew to LJ. I pretty much wiped out my old account. . . and restarting with a new. just to go off on a new life. . . with new entries. . . wanting some new friends.

A lil 411 on me. I'm a 20 year old Filipino girl. About to go to medicine school next year. majoring in X-ray and photography. What you will find in my entries could be intelligent ponderings, questions to life, random jibber jabber. You won't find me doing random quizzez and surveys (ok, very little. I do get bored some times, is that just so wrong?) and I like reading and commenting.

I would also like to add people who are also in a long distance relationship as well. this is one of the longest struggles in my life. and I just wanna comment and read, and understand the joys and issues of long distance relationships as well as have sympathy.

Hi,
My name is Emily and I am a senior at Haverford College. I am doing my senior thesis research on the experience of being in a LDR and I need participants. Participants in my study will fill out an online form that will take around 20 minutes and it's completely confidential. Also, participants will be entered in a raffle that has 15 $50 cash prizes!

To participate, please go to:

Thanks so much for your help,
Emily

I Should Put In My Own Formal Intro... [Dec. 19th, 2003|12:01 am]
LDR Pride

pyc2star
my experience with LDRs started when i was 16...the first girl who held an intrest in me was less of the "shes soooo hottt" type..and more the...."i can deal" type of person...we were both really on the LOW end of self-esteem so us being together was horrible because one wouldnt give what that other one always wanted..and vice versa....that relationship ended after almost 4 years of me dealing with that horrible family life...then i did it again...i moved to a different country...and was with an australian...i had been warned before i went over there about the country and the people as well but i was sure that i would make it just fine there with my dead on american accent...long story short...i had to come back after 6 months...so for 6 months she stayed there until i paid her ticket to here...then we drove to indiana to live...dizastor struck in every way humany possible...the weather was bad all the way there..it was just really bad...just...thinks im going to choose to not share...i finally got out of that house and back into california where i met my newest ex mel...she had said that i could have stayed with her and there would be no other intentions behind her asking...i thanked her but declined for the night...next day..i had driven into LA completely broke..i sold my car for gas money to get back here...i sold my computer for under $100...i gave up my half of the deposit on the place to them...i had nothing and nowhere to go...and mom once againg opened her arms and said it would be ok...she didnt have to...i NEVER asked her to do it...i on the phone with her and in front of her just wanted motherly/dautherly comfort..that was all....i didnt know anything else even existed at this point...mel taught me a lot about myself that im just not confortable sharing with everyone right now...i just feel that she completed her mission with me and has left me standing here wondering what comes next...what i learned from my LDRs is this

A. communicaion is VERY IMPORTANT...twice as important in face to face relationships...you need to express your little frustrations and not let them build up..

B. set your boundries...say you set one on wens "im taking showers alone" and stick to it...no opening the door for cute kisses...NOTHING...shower ALONE...get the tension going

C. after kissing for a long time on the couch...DONT make it into sex...dont assume anything..(i know its hard your emotions are screaming one thing and your body another..just go with it)...making out is fun...why ruin everything for the sake of going back foreplay...just stay there the next few times youre with your partner..and they will be driven insane from desire...

D. its important to have a level of security about the situation outside and with your voice while with her...even if you dont have one at all...your g-f needs you to be strong right now...no matter what the relationship is...put up a brave front and if you need...fall apart in side

E. do not let her make decisions that she will hate you in the end for making...example...if em had gotten into dartmouth and i said...no..i dont want you to go...and she after our long arguement decided to stay...we WOULD have broken up...no doubt about it.. because at that point...i was getting what i wanted fully..she was getting NOTHING that she wanted and there was no middle ground found...you MUST find that middle ground...its imperative that you do this ASAP

First of all, im 20 years old and im in a LDR and have been for over a year. I live in ireland and my g/f in california. We see each other every 3mths and when we visit each other we live in the same room so its not so bad casue anytime we spend together we spend 24hrs a day together! I spent the whole summer over there but she started in a new college and had to go and live on campos. Her semester started early so i had to leave middle of August and i havnt seen her since :(

Good news is our waiting is almost up, she is coming over to see me for 3 and a half weeks on the 29th of December so its only 11 days away and im so excited.

I just find it so hard to be apart from her. I just need some way to cope with being seperated from my heart and i need to be string and get through these hard times. Can anyone offer any sort of help or advice?? thanks

my girlfriend got rejected to dartmouth...came as a complete shock to everyone...i went over there to comfort her but felt almost like..in a way i was being comforted as well..i was expecting to have this huge weight off of my shoulders if she got rejected...instead of that i just felt even more sad because not only was her primary dream now over....but it means she has to start applying to other colleges....shes applying to all of these schools on the east coast...cornell, brown, harvard, ect. i just want for her so badly to find a college here and stay in my arms...i tried to express to her a few weeks ago what was going to happen most likely to us if she left to go to the east coast full time...i broke down in tears and then she said that us breaking up was not an option and that she would rather go to school here than us break up...i just really hope when these colleges accept her that she will take the time to think about everything..weigh the options...talk to me about it and us make the decision together..the thing i want least in the world is us breaking up over distance however i know that with all the changes a person goes through in college are emense...youre in a new environment...new friends....new classes...new experimenting...plus being out on your own for the first time...i just dont know where to take things from here...i guess the only thing that i can do right now is just wait and hold my breath...hope that she comes to me and talks about the options...checks with the colleges to see if they have anything like dartmouth did school wise (she was going to go there for 4 months and be here for the other 8)...4 months i could handle...it would be REALLY hard but i think that i could handle it...but her going away for 8-10 months a year...thats too much...ive already done my LDR time and have no desire to do that right now even though im completely head over heals and lost in her...this weekend should be nice though...on friday im going over to her place and spending the night then on saturday we are going to vegas for a few days just to get away from it all...be alone together in a neutral place and just lay around and laugh...ideas people??

I Will Break The Ice.... [Nov. 30th, 2003|04:45 pm]
LDR Pride

pyc2star
about me....im 26...i live in southern california...i have been in 3 LDRs at some point in my life...right now im dating a wonderful woman who is in the process of submitting her college applications to many a corner of the USA...the thought of this great new bond that ive got with my g-f is terrifying since i have her fairly close to me right now and the whole college process is in and of itself scary...falling in love with someone while knowing that there is a possibility that it will become a LDR is really putting a lot of faith and trust in the ability of it to function away from one another and really in a way is like giving everything up to the Fates and saying...here...i believe that this is happening for a reason...i trust that this will be safe in your hands...its giving over control of emotions as well as that closeness you share right now to something not of this world (keeping it general so all who hold different opinions on "faith" can keep them seperate for the common good) which admittedly despite my trust is hard to do since i hate giving up that kind of control when i know how aching my heart has felt in the past in LDRs and how aching i feel already when i still have her (fortunately) close to me...so there you go..my introduction....next up??
