I have no questions whatsoever, I just want to share my story...or at least share what's about to happen. You see, I have been with my bf for a very long time now. We've been a couple for 9 years and we have been friends since we were 11 years old. He really is my very best friend in the whole wide world. We have never been apart for too long. The longest was two weeks and boy! was I so sad during that time. Anyway, recently, we have decided that it is time for us to take necessary steps to elevate our life. If the both of us stay here, we might never save enough to start our married life together and so he will be leaving for another country to try his luck and hopefully save enough for the both us and his parents as well. Although I completely trust our relationship, we completely trust one another, there is still this scared feeling inside me since I really don't know what is about to happen to us. I know that we really need to do this. I will just miss him terribly. I just hope that we can be one of those long-distance love affairs success stories. ^_^

Hi, Kababayan! Yes, you're right to feel scared that your bf is going away and that your relationship will surely be tested by this long-distance love affair. Long distance relationships require a special willingness and understanding that can test love like no other type of relationships can. It requires constant communication and a desire to continually create your relationship, using the only real tool that you have...your words. There are hundred different ideas to help keep your fire burning no matter how many miles may separate you -- e-mails, e-cards, chatting and hey! you should be glad somebody invented the webcam..you could see him everyday! Lastly, PRAY everyday that both of you survive your relationship despite the distance and that finally God will bless your union forever.

Just always believe that this is only happening to your relationship just yo test both of you.. It is really hard for a couple to be apart for such a long period of time but when the time come that you will see each other again, you will realize that waiting to see each other for too long is all worthy. Just always keep in touch on him and always communicate each other. Never lose your trust to each other.
