LDR and Webcams [19 Dec 2006|12:13am]


This is kind of a different topic to most on here, but if anyone's willing to share their experiences i'd be grateful!

Im currently writing my thesis on internet communication, more specifically using webcam/video calls to maintain relationships. If anyone's doing this right now, or has done in the past, and is willing to answer a short survey, you can fill it out online here:


Thanks for your help!

Your Name:Summerchic
SO's Name:Matthew
Ages:21, 19
How you met: We met while I was studying abroad in Sydney, Australia. I went to a bar with a friend who was trying to meet up with her boyfriend. As soon as we walked in, I saw Matt because he is tall and so he stands out. I told my friend I thought he was really cute. My friend kept on having to walk out of the bar to call her boyfriend and every time she walked out I came with her and brushed past Matt. Eventually, he came up and talked to me. I didn't stay for long because I had to work the next day but he took my number and called me. We met on a Tuesday, we went out that Friday and really had a chance to talk. We really clicked and have pretty much been together ever since.
Location of both of you: I go to school in upstate NY/ live in Boston he lives in Sydney, Australia...that's 10,000miles apart!!!
How long have you been together: 13.5 months
How long have you been in a long distance relationship: 11 months
Status of your Relationship: dating but on a break...just because things have gotten so stressful. Matt says he feels a lot of pressure to call all the time. He has visted me twice ( for all of July and then December, January, February) and I have visited him once for a week in October. I am graduating from college in May, and was planning on spending the majority of my year off in Australia living with him. Now I don't know what is going to happen, if we can't deal with the distance part of our relationship, I don't know if we are going to make it till then. I love him so much and we have so much fun when we are together so part of me really wants to go. The other part of me feels like maybe I am holding him down too much and that we are too young to be in such a serious relationship and that part of me wishes I could let him go (I don't know if I can) and wishes I could move on with my life and find other ways to make myself happy. The thing is I have no clue what I would do next year if I were not with him!
Anniversary Date: 2/22/05. He got me a really gorgeous anniversary band!!! It is white gold with 5 little diamonds in a row. It is gorgeous. We went to go buy it a week before our anniversary, but I wanted it in white gold and they only had yellow gold, and it had to be fitted...so it was not ready until this week! He says he still wants me to wear it and that I am still his girl, and I love wearing it, but sometimes I feel weird about wearing it when our relationship is so uncertain. I got him a ring too, as well as some other stuff, including a list of 10 things i love about you that turned into 25...but I don't know, I haven't sent it yet. I want to, but I want to be in the frame of mind to write a perfect card. Both the cards he gave me for Valentines Day and our anniversary were hand made and absolutely perfect!!! He is also so good with words...not like me, I know I ramble but he can put his feelings so well into a few concise words that mean so much.
Do you want to get married if you already aren't: I do want to get married. and Matt has said that he also hopes that we end up getting married. and it would solve a lot of our problems. but we are SO young. I really can't see myself getting married for at least another 4 years.
Any Ideas for the community: I would love advice and I would also love to give advice whenever possible. I have been doing this for over a year and feel like I have tried it all.

Did you read the rules: I have not read the rules but it is unintentional...I could not find them!!! I looked...please send me a link and I would be happy to read and obey them.

Depressed [22 Sep 2005|09:28pm]

[ mood | distressed ]

So I just got back to London from an amazing trip to Canada, where my boyfriend met me, and we spent three wonderful weeks together.
I now feel like i've lost a limb, and so alone. I dont know what to do, i'm in two minds whether to quit uni and move over there, or soldier on feeling like this. I can't sleep, I can't stop crying and I miss him so much it's painful.
This is just so hard, and I dont know if I can deal with it.
love hurtsCollapse )

Jeff will be arriving in Indianapolis from California about two hours. i'm in bloomington an hour and a half away...

I have work at 10am...until 6pm
I'm trying to leave work early.

I'm thinking about driving up to indy...
Be there at 6am...
Drive back to Bloomington at 8 so i can be at work by 9:30am
Drive back to Indianapolis after work and stay until Sunday around 6pm...

He was mean on the phone tonight...saying things like a joke...but not quiting...he just kept going.

I dont know what to do.
He doesnt deserve that...and i'll be tired

He left cali with me feeling sad and lonely.
I'm supposed to be excited with that warm fuzzy feeling of, "Yeah, i havent seen him in almost two months!"

Instead i have tears and am wondering if i should even drive up.

i just dont know

Okay Okay, lets see here.

No issues really in my relationship.

I've found out that hypothetical world that goes too indepth makes him squarm so i'm stopping that.

i've been happy girlfriend this week and well see how that goes. i wont see him until september 16th (maybe if i have enough money) so i may get sad between now and then.

i was kind of suprized at how undepressed i was after he left. i guess ya just get used to it after three years.

yep. thats it fornow i guess.

Well, the love of my life moved back to Canada three weeks ago. This is the longest time i've gone without seeing him. He studied here in England for a year and we fell in love, which was a bit unfortunate but meh.
WE've spoken every single day on the phone though, which eases the pain a bit. Has anyone got any tips on long distance survival? I'm a very jealous person and it's killing me. Also, the phone bill is turning into a bitch. Skype doesn't seem to be working for us. Shitty!

OMG I am going to cry! Dave told my mom or asked her rather to buy me a rose for me I guess. I was typing and she called me out there and said that she has something for me but not from her, it was from Dave. I gave a confused look and she handed me a rose, a single red rose. I started to tear up, still am. and the note on it said I love you, Dave. IT was signed from my mom but I don't care it's the thought that matters. He is the best boyfriend I could ever ask for, everything and more! I love you Dave!

I can't believe that time flies by so quickly. I really can't. It seems taht he just got here on Monday and everything and now his flight leaves tomorrow. This week has been the best week i've had in a while. Him and I spent a lot of time with his parents and helping set up the new house and everything. Which was totally ok with me and him. We saw a few movies.."Hicth", "Mr. and Mrs. Smith","Hostage","Elktra" and "The Pacifer". They were all really good. We did a few errands that needed to be done.We went shopping too a bit. I love shopping with him b/c he gives his honest opinion. He will hold my purse and not me ask or hint or anything he just takes it, suchs a sweetie. If I ask him if he is sure he gives me a look like shut up and go try on the clothes. he he so cute!I b ought a few shirts and I bought a few more lotions. I serisouly think I have the whole collection of Bath and Body Works! hey it's sales lol. His Uncle Wayne also came home for the weekend from a trip for work to spend some time with him before he left to go back to school. Which was really sweet of him.I was introduced as "The newest member of the family" Made me feel so welcome and loved! I loved hearing that! Had a lot of people there, which made me nervous. Jason and Genn stopped by so that was cool. Then we went to the Fireworks show that Roseville had. I didn't know that many people lived there. lol. He said the same thing. lol. Had a great time there! I haven't been to see fireworks in years! I rally haven't! It meant a lot to me that he wanted me to go with him. That night I suprised him with me staying the night, and then a few nights before then my parents wanted him to stay the night here. Which meant a lot to us. They just wanted us to sleep i seprate rooms, I am quite ok with that. Although when he stayed we were wacthing Coach Carter and afterwards he was like "Wanna wacth another one?" It's like 12 at night and I was like don't we have to take you home? He was like nope I'm staying, I couldn't get over it for like 5 minutes! His mom has been showing me how to cook some things and that has been fun! I wrote her a letter and I bought ehr a stuffed kitty. The letter thanked her for being so great nad sharing him so much and for just always supporting us and for her to be such a doll and telling her how much I adore her! It made her cry. I am hoping to spend some time with her between now and my trip then when I go back to school also though. I am hoping to at least.

It's so weird. From doing everything with someone else, not having to do anything really alone and now having to do it all alone and it's just weird and I don't like it. I m iss him so much andwe only said out See you laters about a hour ago!We always say"See you later" B/c with us it's never good bye! His flight leaves tomorrow evening but I won't see him then. So it was hard today. It really was. 1 month and 1 week till I leave for my trip! I can't wait! I really can't! Then I ge him all to myself! Wel my mom too but she knows that I get more than her! LOL> Just playin' Ma. lol. Oh so we bought him a coffee table for his birthday. B/c his table was broke and tried to fix it so we bought him one. He loves it! He was completely taken back and had no idea what to say. My parents were the one whoc ame up with it. I was quite suprised by it myself. My dad is planning on getting a plexi glass to put on top that way the glasses wouldn't damage it and if they wanted to put the pictures of the gf's or the families they could. Since all 3 of them he apt. have g/f's so i thought it was cute!

It's weird to have him not here or not to be wit him or to know that I won't see him tomorrow. I love him so much and I miss him so much! He is my everything and i fell more in love with him with each passing day! Next month will be 11 months for us! The thing is all of that is long distance, with visits of course but well. Even the time we got to know each other, long distance and a year without seeing each other! I was trying my best to be strong. He made me feel so good! He siad I am good at being strong. For me, that means a lot b/c I don't see myself strong and that made me feel like I really am. I really don't know what I would do without him in my life. He is my all. I couldn't go through all the things I have in the past few years, I couldn't be me, I couldn't be as strong as I am, I couldn't finally be ok with me just being myself.Him and I have gone through a lot when we were talking and still now. He is the one I will marry one day and him and I were talking about that this week. It was so great.

Well I think I am done rambling on and on now... Thanks for those of y'all who read and all that lovely jazz!

[ mood | thankful ]

ok so its been kind of difficult to post in any of my communities that I have join because I dont have a computer anymore. If you are wondering were I am right now Ill tell you. Im in Nathans room. Finally Im near the love of my life. Its been so long since Ive been able to post so to sum this all up...January 27th I was scared in school getting called out because my mom needed me. The only reason that ever happened was because someone died. Well when I walked out the school doors there was Nathan standing there as my big surprise. For five beautiful days we were together, then I had to let him go again. Then in March on the 17th I went and flew to TX to see him. For about 11 days we were together having ever moment to ourselves and even when we werent completely alone, we were because looking in his eyes is such a dream all I could see was him and no one else. Sadly I had to leave him again but June 9th I flew to OH to meet him and his mom who were staying with his family. He actually wanted me to meet his family so I did. Needless to say they all liked me so I am officially apart of the family lol. That Sunday Nathan his mom and I flew out of OH to TX where I am right now. Im meeting new people and making new friends. Seeing a part of life that I could only imagine. Im supposed to stay til the 13th of July but there are friends that want me to stay later for a decades dance that they are having. Im looking forward to it so finally Ill be at a dance with Nathan, since we missed prom and all. I love him so much. Just a little before January I was wondering when I was ever going to see him and how hard it really was to not be able to and then here we are in June and Ive seen him three times now. I love him so much. My love grew even more in person. Everything is wonderful between us. Im so happy and I wanted to share. So please forgive me for being a bad member. ::smile:: I love Nathan
