I can’t tell if we both suck at long distance, or if he does. He works all day so I don’t expect him to want to talk everyday when he gets home. I am also fine with waiting a day or two for a phone call; if we talk everyday it won’t be as special. However, I don’t like waiting four days to talk to my boyfriend, and then on the fourth day we only text. Our relationship is going great, we are both very open and loving, but when we aren’t together we have a hard time communicating that through. This is also my first relationship, so I never know what is normal and what isn’t. I’ve had so many mood swings this summer about our relationship because I always base my mood on how often we talk during a week. And because he works so much each day, I never want to bombard him with phone calls so I wait for him to call, other days I’ll text him. I also haven’t had an opportunity to bring up how I was hurt when he was being secretive about the coke and whatnot. Gaah, I just wish we could talk over the phone more often. That is all I ask for! But I don’t want to be that girlfriend, so I am just going to wait out these last two weeks of having to be long distance. I’m also not going to see him for a whole month which freaks me out. I don’t even want to think about when he goes to Russia, because I know what is going to happen.
