    25 Emotional Stages Of Being In A Long Distance Relationship

    "Distance is not for the fearful. It's for the bold."

    1. At the beginning, the world is less than sympathetic.

    2. Admit it. Even you were a little skeptical.

    3. But you know in your heart that long distance relationships can work.

    4. You just have to work at them.

    5. So, your significant other packs up their things.

    6. Despite your pleading...

    7. And then they're off.

    8. You start to feel a little lonely.

    9. And you don't want to do much of anything.

    10. Eventually, you pick up some new hobbies.

    11. But they don't seem to make the time pass any faster.

    12. You try to chat with your significant other online.

    13. You're always waiting for the phone to ring.

    14. And you get excited every time you get a text.

    15. People keep asking how you're doing.

    16. While others claim they know exactly how you feel.

    17. Some days, you feel strong.

    18. But other days, you feel defeated.

    19. You start counting down the days until you'll see each other again.

    20. And when the day finally arrives, you run faster than you ever have before.

    21. You immediately start making up for lost time.

    22. Doing everything you've wanted to do for so long.

    23. And then, sooner rather than later, the cycle starts all over again.

    24. But, it's OK.

    25. Because you know that one day it will all be worth it.
