My most favorite among the 25 quotes is "If you press me to say why I loved him, I can say no more than because he was he, and I was I." - Michel de Montaigne. I think being true to one another is important. :) Wow..Love is in the air.

Number 23 is so true... "Because I love you and I miss you, hearing your voice is the closest thing to touching you."

I've been involved in long distance relationships and it is amazing how much you need to hear the other person, even if it is just a few minutes of "nonsense" you feel so much better after you have heard your loved one.

A long distance love is so difficult to cope with but you have helped here with this hub. I just love the quotes, well done.

@Princessa - I just got off the phone with my long distance man and you're definitely right that even just a few minutes of "nonsense" can really keep you going. I actually get almost anxiety attacks when I don't hear from him because I worry that something bad happened! Thanks so much for reading. :)

@acaetnna - Thank you so much! It means a lot coming from someone with your talent for writing about love.

I greatly appreciate the time and effort that you have put into this! My Boyfriend and I are both in the Military, he is currently on a 6 month cruise, and 6 months after he gets back I will be leaving on a 9 month cruise. These quotes always help remind me that he is worth every second of time apart! I always copy and email him really good ones! =) Thank you! This site is greatly appreciated!I actually found a great one the other day and just wanted to share it with you...

"Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It is for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. Its for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough..." Author Unknown

I'm currently also in a long distance relationship... and some days get so hard when you see other couples who are with each other every day! @Michelle, I just read that quote yesterday and hung it up in my room! Love it cuz it's so true!

I am in a long distance relationship, my man is in Cape Town & am in Eastern Cape. We see each other monthly. That was too much me before I read the qoutes but now am really coping.


Lindsay 5 years ago

Hey guys, well I met my lovely man during the past 8 months away at college. I was a commuter in the fall, but met up with him once or twice a week. Then I moved on campus for the spring, and we were inseparable. Even though we fought, we made up and tried to pull back strong. I think I was oversensitive to the fact that summer was coming and I knew I wasn't going to see him as much because he lives about an hour and half to two hours away from my home. Well it's the second day of summer vacation. We have talked a bunch the last couple days, and I miss him dearly. I hope our relationship lasts through the summer. It's sad from spending almost everyday together, to going a few weeks at a time,until school starts up again, to hopefully spend time with one another. Thank you for the advice, and I'm going to do my best to stay calm and positive.

Absence truly makes the heart grow fonder.

im sorta in a relationship. we're practically together and promised to marriage. but he lives over 5,800 miles away.. across an ocean... on another continent. It's hard.. because we met 6 months ago and we're so perfect for eachother.. but i only go to that country to visit ever 2+ years.. so luckily we have the internet.. but even that's hard with a 6 hr time difference.. :'(
