On August 10th, 2018 at 9:30 pm, me and my boyfriend said, "I love you" to each other for the first time.
Now our relationship isn't just an average one. I am from Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania and he is from Queens, New York. My family and I went up to NYC for a little family vacation for a weekend and while I was there, I went on Tinder. I didn't really expect to find anything, I guess I was just looking for different people that I would have never seen in my small town in Pa. While I was there, I matched with 32 people and he was one of them.
We started talking that night and well, we never stopped. We have now been in a long distance relationship for almost 9 months and we plan out our schedule to see each other once a month since we are both busy college students. It is the most difficult thing I have done, love in a long distance relationship where we are restricted to FaceTime calls, text messages, and SnapChat.
However, it is the best thing I have ever done, and we have never been happier loving one another. We would do anything for the other and we talk about our future together all the time. We are the odd couple out, but we are a success story. He is the most beautiful thing I have ever laid my eyes one, and the purest thing I have ever held. He is my everything. He is the keeper of my heart. He's the love that makes my heartbeat. He is whom I love unconditionally. He is the love of my life.
