I guess its time address some of the topics of true interest in the dating world of 2020. I guess because many people don't date anymore its become a sense of an old world tradition. One I happen to miss. I think because I am a modern yet traditional woman I walk in two worlds.
I am a firm believer in spoiling someone you love. Dating to. It doesn't cost much to touch someone's heart should you truly choose to do so. Take time to learn them. To know their mind as well as their faults, their flaws.
Its important to also keep in mind, "You don't have to be perfect to be loved".
I must admit, shock of all shocks., AF ? isn't perfect. The best part about him? is he never tried to be the "Perfect" man. He just happens to be the perfect man, for ME. Me. Faults and flaws and fears. He has the patience of Job in regards to me. Oh I'm sure I have on occasion irritated him.
Being in a long distance relationship isn't easy. He and I can't "date" like normal people. So he and I make "Skype" dates. And Movie Mondays our dates. We talk for hours on the phone and even in music chat. We place video calls to each other. We make the best of a hard situation. Being separated isn't easy, on either of us.
This pandemic has truly thrown a monkey wrench into the "Dating game". He and I have no choice but to be patient when truthfully? I want to run into his arms and never let go. I miss him. I miss holding his hand. Its the little things like that, that make it a big deal.
Being unable to "reach" him. Comfort him when he feels very alone? is difficult to describe. I am unable to just hold his hand right now. I am unable to hug him. Little things, that make a big difference in our lives.
Human contact is sooo vital to life, especially during a time we are told to stay distant. So I find ways to "touch" AF. I send him funny gifts. I even sing along to music to him on Skype. I try to always keep in mind he needs lots of hugs and touches. I always keep in my mind, to smile. No matter what is going on behind the scenes. I try to be sensitive to his needs.
Long Distance dating is hard. No getting around that. I sure hope this Pandemic is over soon. I really do. I miss AF. I do. Its not easy being apart from him.
Well, I'll write more tomorrow.
