delightfully darling.

Happy Wednesday, friends! I have another installment in the {distance makes the heart grow fonder} series for you today :) Teresa {from delightfully darling} and her beau, J, didn't get much time together before distance drew them apart. They are now navigating  their days apart with a special goal in mind...


Name: Teresa  |  Significant Other's Name: J
When did you start dating? We started dating in late July 2010 and on September 26 of that year, we made it official. He asked me to be his "girlfriend" with flowers and a Starbuck's travel cup. (The way to my heart is definitely through coffee!)


How do you fill your days when you’re apart?  I blog! I have only a handful of friends in my everyday life and they aren’t into fashion as much as I am. I had been a blogger before J and I started dating—the distance just encouraged me to invest more time into my blog. With J working in another state, I focused more on building a "pretty" blog and finding like-minded bloggers with which I could connect.

What do you find most difficult about being long distance? It can be pretty lonely. The worst is when there is an event that I would like to take him to or a concert that we could enjoy and there just isn't any way for us to go together. Its frustrating in that sense.


How has long distance changed your relationship? Its strange because its all we really know. We did have a short period where we got to live together but it was over before we were really able to get settled in. I feel like we have been together for nearly 2 years, yet we are really just starting if that makes sense. The distance seems to slow things down a lot.

How do you stay focused on the future—and not get stuck in the day-to-day? Like most everyone, we have our ups and downs. There have been times where I doubt the whole long distance thing, but then I think of life without him, I know why we do it. I am beyond happy that we at least have each other in this way—even if it is mostly confined to texts, phone calls, and skype. We talk about a time where we will be finished with our obligations and can be together "for real." It is a great goal to work toward because no matter the distance, the heart wants what it wants... and my heart wants him!

I love the perspective that Teresa and J maintain. It's absolutely true that the highs and lows of every day life can get in the way, but with the right mindset, they can be conquered. In reality, it's a great mantra for each and every one of us :) Have a fantastic Wednesday--and keep your eyes on the prize...whatever yours may be.


P.S. I'm guest posting over at Pearls and Pugs today--be sure to stop by!

  1. I can totally relate - long distance was all I ever knew with my boyfriend before we moved in together. It was all we had, but we knew it was worth it in the end because we didn't want to see a life without the other in it. These stories are so encouraging and I love reading how other couples dealt/are dealing with long distance relationships.

  5. After being in relationship with Wilson for seven years,he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to someone online and she suggested that I should contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that don't believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I meant a spell caster called Dr Zuma zuk and I email him, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened, that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him, that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem and who is different from all the fake ones out there. Anybody could need the help of the spell caster, his email: spiritualherbalisthealing@gmail.com or call him +2349055637784 you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or anything. CONTACT HIM NOW FOR SOLUTION TO ALL YOUR PROBLEMS'
