I hope you’re doing well? I’ve been having such a nice time with Haydn in Leeds! The summer has definitely started well. For the time being we’re not really a long distance couple seeing as we have about 6 weeks together, but I still wanted to upload this today as I think so many of you guys will be able to relate. Even if you’re not in an LDR (long distance relationship) keep reading as this might clear up some of the common questions you have about this style of relationship. We’re going to talk about some of the frequently asked questions I get from my friends, family and online about my relationship with Haydn.
Let’s get into this!
Q: Is it hard/do you miss each other?
A: This is a dumb question to ask yet for some reason when I initially tell people about the distance this is what they ask. It feels almost sarcastic because obviously you’re going to miss someone you love and want to spend time with when you can’t. Before I met Haydn I would say that I missed him because I really did miss the idea of him but now that we’ve met missing him is so much different. In short – Hell yeah I miss him.
Q: I don’t think I could do that!
A: I guess this isn’t so much a question rather a statement. But either way it’s definitely in the top 5 silly things I get asked. If you fall in love with someone who lives far away you sort of have the choice to either try and make it work or just not bother. It’s not the type of relationship I planned but I want to be with Haydn so it’s sort of the choice I make in order for us to be together.
Q: How does that work?
A: I hate this question because it’s as if people expect you to be some kind of relationship guru who has some secret formula for making a relationship work. In reality I don’t know it just sort of works because we both put the time and effort it. I have done another post with some LDR related relationship advice so feel free to read that here.
Q: How do you know they won’t cheat on you?
A: How do you know your close distance partner won’t cheat? You just have trust in them. I don’t think being in a long distance relationship means your any more likely to be cheated on then you are in any other kind of relationship.
Q: Can’t you just get a boyfriend here?
A: ahhh. I think I actually scream inside every time someone asks me this. It’s not like I chose to fall in love with some who lives far away it just sort of happened. Also I don’t like this question because it’s not as if me having a boyfriend far away is any less of a relationship then being with someone who lives closer.
I hope you guys in an LDR have found this relatable and if your not then now some of you questions might be answered. Do you guys have anymore annoying questions you get asked about your relationship? Let me know below!
P.S. I want to do a post that shares some of your LDR stories here on my blog! If you’d like to get involved with a future post then please message me on Instagram (@211_miles) or get in touch using the contacts page.
