Somebody else comes along and makes you forget the guy who's miles away from you.
Although that hasn't happened yet, it still may. Make the most of this friendship with someone you care for deeply.
That's why nobody in their right mind would want to fall in love with somebody who lives half a country away. (I know; I lived 2,000 miles away from my wife before we were married.) You're bound to feel frustrated. You have these feelings for each other, and you have to decide what to do with them. You said you expected your feelings to fade away once you two were apart.
You met someone at college, and now you’re both going back home for the summer.
You might live in the same state or even across the country from each other, and you might be wondering how to jump successfully over this sudden hurdle. When you are able to spend time with your significant other, you might not think too much about communication styles.
Through a series of recent events an old friend came back into my life.
But he is back in Michigan, and I am three states away.
I know long-distance relationships are possible, but I don't even know where to begin.
Do you have any thoughts or wisdom on this subject?
I believe it is very important for couples to grow in their faith together, and it can be hard to do that in a long distance relationship, because we cannot go to church together.
Can you point me to some resources for long distance relationships?
Yes, God can keep you together if he wants to, despite the distance. You're wise to just enjoy the relationship a day at a time, keep it going for as long as you like, and let it dwindle away if your feelings change.
In the meantime, you have a friend you like and admire. Try not to attach too many strings to the relationship.
A When you're hundreds of miles away from someone you care about, the difference between a friendship and a romance is all about feelings.
