Relationship - A Fulltime Job
My boyfriend surprised me with a really sweet text message this afternoon when I was struggling with keeping my eyes open while reading Studying Literature (a book in my proficiency class). Among other things he told me that, it's so sweet of you to always keep our relationship on tops [...] I miss you beyond explanation and I hope once I finish this contract we can sit down and chat till dawn. [...] Kisses honey, love you always and forever. So sweeet!
The contract he's talking about is an electrical engineering job he's been working on for weeks, if not months, and it's due sometime soon, early September I think. While he's been working on that we haven't been able to skype, only a couple of real short phone calls, sent a few texts and some facebook talks. It's a huge job so I imagine he must be exhausted, but it'll be worth it when the bonus arrives in his bank account, I guess, haha.
It's not easy, keeping up a long distance relationship. Hell, I've only had one real long relationship that wasn't long distance (8 months, which Boyfriend and I have passed now, yayii!). A lot of teens and young adults don't realize that, for a relationship to work, you have to fight for it, just as hard and sometimes even harder than you fought to get the relationship in the first place! To have a boyfriend or a girlfriend is time-consuming, it's hard work, but it pays off as well, and when it's with the right person, you should be willing to do whatever it takes! Yes, it's a fulltime job, but hell, if it wasn't, would you consider your significant other a hobby, then? Think about how you would feel, being looked upon as just something to fill up the schedule with. In my opinion, a lot of people give up to easy.
I love you, Boyfriend :* And that concludes the moralizing speech of the day, and I gotta get back to my studies (ex. fac. this time...).
