long distance

Postby Girl From Mars » Tue Apr 22, 2003 12:55 pm

I met a lad on the internet about 4 years ago and i have been talking to him since then, i got to know him really well, he lives in newcastle and i live in manchester so its quite a ling way away. he is the same age as me, 16. we talked about meeting a few times but we never did.

anyway...he told me that he had got tickets for a coldplay concert in manchester, and did i want to go with him..i was really excited about meeting him for the first time, finally persuaded my parents to let me go, i had a really great time, when i first saw him i thought i really really like him, and we talked all night and the next day.

that was one week ago and i am missing him like crazy, sounds stupid having only met him once, but i think i love him and he loves me. the problem is that my parents are not taking this seriously, they seem to think its just a joke and cant accept that i really like him. they wont let me get the train up to newcastle to see him, they dont really like me talking to him all the time. they are making it really difficult...what i am asking is can a long distance thing like this work, even with my parents against it so we cant see each other as often as we like? im scared i will lose him because he will get fed up with all the hassle, even though he's said he wont.

sorry if i have gone on a bit...but i really need some advice

Hey. I had a long distance relationship a while ago. In my experience, it didn't work. However, it seems you really like this guy, and it seems he likes you back. My feelings are, give it a go. You'll never know unless you try, and you don't wanna be in a situation where you're thinking "what if." Now I aint sayin' fall out with the parents, but if it may work,then its worth a try! I would say, perhaps explain to the guy about the problems its causing...maybe he'll come down and see you again??

Hope this helped a little.

I think it's a good sign that he wants to try and talk to your parents, it shows a sense of responsibility.

As for long distance relationships, I've only had one, which was wonderful while it lasted. Sadly we split up about 2 months ago. At the end of the day, you've got to go for what you think will make you happy. If he feels the same way about you, he won't get bored with the situation - although it is frustrating at times, you really do have to go with the flow. I know I'd definately do it again given the opportunity! Plus I made a great friend who I wouldn't want to be without.

My advice is, give it a go, what have you got to lose? I'm sure you won't lose the friendship - which is the important thing!

Have fun tomorrow......make the most of the time you have together, it always goes very quickly!

yeh just go for it i mean, parents cant always be right, if they are so what, we've got to learn from our own experiances, not theirs. As far as guys go, not many offer to talk to your parents if there is a problem so i can definatly say that he has got to like u a lot, mabe even love! you never know, U GO GIRL !!!!
