Ask me anything   Our Story   

Australian girl hopelessly in love with an American boy. Going the distance, and making it work, across continents. We are separated by 10,000 miles - let's just say, thank God for Skype! Writing this blog as a kind of cathartic release, and to maybe even help other couples with their magic, far-away love.

Inconvenient Love

Last night in Australia our clocks went forward an hour for daylight savings time. Amazing for summer, not so amazing for long distance relationships. My boy and I have gone through a lot of time changes and each time we worry that it’s going to make it hard for us to talk and spend time together. After each change we find ourselves laughing because it never does. Regardless what time it is where, or how inconvenient it is, we always make time for each other. This has been one of the main reasons we’ve been able to make the distance work.

I think the most important thing to remember for a couple in a long distance relationship (and even couples that aren’t) is that love is inconvenient. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that.

I was in a relationship a few years ago that was super convenient - he lived about 10 minutes from me, and we saw each other all the time. But then I realised that there wasn’t any real love between us and that we had stayed together because it was easy and convenient. Realising this, and that he could very easily live without me, was actually really hard to come to terms with.

My boyfriend and I have had to put in so much effort to make our relationship work across continents. But even as I write that, I realise that even though we have always made a great deal of effort, I have never once felt like our relationship was hard work. We put each other first, we trust each other implicitly and we cherish every moment we get to talk to each other.

Love can be very inconvenient, but when it is, it is challenged.. often. When will we see each other? How can we make this work? Facing an obstacle in any relationship forces a couple to a crossroads. You have one of two options - decide the problem/relationship is too hard and give up, or refuse to let it beat you. The second option requires two people to have enough confidence to say to each other, and themselves, “our love is stronger than that”.

Long distance couples deal with this every day. The distance is a constant test of your love. For some, challenges just make the cracks in a relationship deeper, for others overcoming the challenge only deepens the love.

I guess what I am trying to say is - don’t be afraid of inconvenient love. It is easy to be with someone, when circumstances make it easy. Long distance couples choose to be with someone despite difficult circumstances, choose to put their love before any challenge. They make this choice because not being together is not an option. This is a truly beautiful gesture on the part of each person in the relationship. I cannot be without you, I will love you no matter what.

the-girl-from-nowhere-universe asked: Oh cool :) yes, Newcastle isn't that far! I see that your boyfriend is from the States? Mine is too :) By the way, I also recently got involved in Tumblr and I'm trying to figure out how this thing works, it's so confusing!


Answer:

Haha yeah me too, I’m slowly getting there. Good luck figuring it all out. Where in the States is your boy from? How did you guys meet?

the-girl-from-nowhere-universe asked: Hi, I saw your post on miles-in-between(I think...) and read that you created a new blog about LDR and you wanted some followers then I realised you were from Australia! I live in Sydney and it was nice to find someone close to me who's going through the same thing :) Do you live in Sydney too?


Answer:

Hey. Yeah I just started this blog last week, basically for that exact reason, to connect with some people going through the same thing as I am. So if you like it, feel free to share. I live in Newcastle, not Sydney but actually pretty close to you! So, how far are you from your special someone?

I went for brunch with my girlfriends today, and he sent me a text saying “I wish I could come and interrupt girl time, just drop in to the cafe, say hi and give you a kiss”.

As much as the distance sucks, being apart makes regular, everyday things seem unbelievably special. I think there is something really beautiful about that.
