Closing the Distance & Life Post-LDR: Kristen & Seth

Who We Are I'm Kristen and he is Seth. I love dogs and food and I swear I'm a mermaid. Seth loves gaming and music and aspires to be a writer. We grew up with completely different backgrounds and family values. I am one of five kids and come from a very religious family. Seth is an only child who grew up mostly without a father and, although was brought up with good morals, is not religious in the slightest. Most importantly, we are two people who lived hundreds of miles away and somehow managed to fall in love. How...

Storytime: Our First Physical Hello

4th September, 2016. 5.30am AEST. I sleepily said good morning to you on Skype, my nerves slightly muted from drowsiness. My brain wouldn’t allow me to comprehend that my life would be changing drastically by the next day; I was too focused on the fear of travelling alone for 20+ hours for the first time. We had some small talk, but it was mostly unspoken emotions being exchanged. We were both terrified of the unknown. "We broke apart for a few seconds, only to mutually feel weirded out by making eye contact for the first time and then pulled each other...

International LDR: Brought Together By Music

Tell us a little bit about yourselves! T: I’m 22, coming up 23 very soon. I live north of Sydney, Australia. I’m a part time business administrator which leaves room for my main love of music/song-writing/performing. I also adore writing in general. I’m quite a confident extrovert (for the most part) but extremely sensitive emotionally, yet not many people know it. I play the Sims a lot and obsess over my dog always. I adore love, which is sometimes to my detriment with how much I’d put it first in my life. Being in a long distance relationship is something...
