Here’s a small photo set i’ve compiled over the past two years of screenshots taken while my girlfriend and I facetime/skype. We’ve been together for 6 years, but because of school and new job openings, 2 of our 6 years have been spent long distance. Many ask us how we do it, and although things like communication, trust, support, and faith play into it a lot, the most honest answer we have for them, is facetime.
We don’t have to send letters through mail, squint at the blinding bright computer monitor as we type an email, or take a chance of developing a brain tumor from resting the phone on our heads over night. Instead, we come home after work, make a call, and there we are - face to face, ready to tell each other how our day went and what’s for dinner. We can even lay down facing each other before we sleep, as long as we’re both positioned properly in bed.
Now sure, some may say this can’t be healthy for a relationship, or that our relationship won’t last long if it keeps up this way, and they may be right… but we are doing the best we can with what is presented to us. I’d hope that if any other couple was put in this similar situation, they’d fight through it as well, no matter what. Cause in the end, I believe we all should fight for what we love.
So go and give your significant other a nice big hug and a kiss, cause I sure as hell wish I could be doing that to mine every single day….
