Like the title implies I met an amazing girl a couple weeks ago...
I was on a political campaigning trip in a different and I met an amazing girl who worked for the organization I was volunteering with. She was pretty much everything I look for in a girl: lovely, God-fearing, creative, caring, passionate, and a little feisty lol.
Anyways, we hit it off and we've been texting and skyping a lot recently. I told her how I felt about her last week and she said she was also attracted to me too. However, she also said that she wanted to take things slowly since she wanted to guard her heart and get to know me better.
I completely respect that but I guess my question is what do I do from here? She lives almost half the country away, so its hard interacting with her in the same way as I would if she were here in person. Any tips for long distance relationships (especially for just getting to know each other better)? Also, how can I express my feelings for her while still respecting her desire to protect her heart?
Any advice you guys could give me would be sincerely respected. I don't want to mess this up by doing anything stupid.
yeah. i guess your right. its just kind of annoying to have people come on to a post that was very sincere and have them troll it instead of actually contributing something. i guess i let my emotions get the better of me.
I can't offer a whole lot that hasn't been said, but having just gotten out of 2 years of a long distance relationship all I can say is be careful. If you can make it work, props to you man, but it's something that takes ALOT of investment and that makes it hard to see it go should things go south. That isn't to say that you can't, I know several that have worked, just gotta keep in mind that it'll be tough. Should you do it though best wishes :) she sounds like she's worth the work
Letters. Lots of HAND-WRITTEN letters. I know it seems slow, old-fashioned, and inconvenient. However, on top of skyping and texting, it helps make the physical absence less noticeable because it's a physical message that you can hold in your hand. I have a shoebox full of letters from my girlfriend and they're something to go back to when I feel lonely or down. It's just a more intimate form of communication. Hope that helps, and I wish you two the best of luck!
