10 Long Distance Relationship Quotes To Inspire You
Long-distance relationships can get tough when you start to feel the distance. You’re cold in bed at night, wishing that he would wrap his arms around you and show you some love. Unfortunately, it feels as though he’s a million miles away.
But despite what some people might tell you, long-distance relationships are totally do-able, and you can feel as in love as someone who lives with their partner. Once you’ve made the choice that you’re going to make this work despite the distance, good things will come.
Naturally, the people close to you will tell you that it just can’t work. “How on earth can it work?” your mom might ask.
But sometimes we just know in our heart that, despite the physical miles between us, we feel a huge closeness spiritually. You can’t let them go, no matter what others tell you. And to help lift your spirits whenever you do start to feel down about the fact that you can’t touch, hug or kiss your beau, here are 10 long distance relationship quotes that will inspire you.
“I hate the stars because I look at the same ones as you do, but without you.”
Okay, yes, it undoubtedly sucks that he’s not by your side as you gaze at the night sky. But it’s reassuring to know that the stars you’re looking at are the exact same ones he’s looking at.
The next time you stargaze, text him or call him up and ask him to look up, too.
“In human relationships, distance is not measured in miles but in affection. Two people can be right next to each other, yet miles apart.”
When I was a teenager, my mom and dad had some fierce rows. They would argue furiously throughout the night about this and that. It all seemed so needless to me. If they really loved each other, why are they arguing so much?
I still think about their rows today. They eventually divorced, but the quote above speaks to me as I’m it does to you. You could live with a partner and feel nothing, or speak to someone online and feel everything.
“A thing is mighty big when time and distance cannot shrink it.”
– Zora Neale Hurston
When you love is big, distance sure isn’t going to shrink it. No matter how far away you are from each other, this love is going to conquer all.
And just think, if your love can overcome distance, it can overcome everything. It’s unbreakable.
“When two hearts are meant for each other, no distance is too far, no time too long and no other can break them apart.”
If something is meant to be, it really doesn’t matter how far apart you are right now. It doesn’t matter what others say to you, because you’ve got a love that is stronger than anything.
Distance is relative. Moreover, there will eventually come a time when the two of you are (re)united as one. And the wait will be so worth it.
“Contrary to what the Cynics say, distance is not the fearful; it’s for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love.”
– Meghan Daum
Sure, some of us will give up easily when we find out that there is a catch to a relationship (he lives miles away). We might break it off and plump a less cooler, less handsome guy who just happens to live in our neighbourhood. Beggars can’t be choosers, right?
But if you’re bold enough, you’ll realise that this is just something you’ve got to deal with. And eventually, you’ll get your just rewards.
“You know you’ve found true love when you catch yourself falling in love with the same person over and over again despite them being miles away from you.”
Maybe you’ve told yourself that this relationship can’t work. Maybe you and your boyfriend have called it quits a few times already because there are just too many miles between you both.
But each time you call it quits, you get lovesick and you keep returning to one another. And when you do, the feeling is stronger every time.
When you love someone, you love them despite the distance. Love is a feeling that you can’t simply wash away simply because “he lives too far away.” It’s stronger than distance.
“If you listen to the wind very carefully, you’ll be able to hear me whisper my love for you.”
– Andrew Davidson
This is a really cute and comforting quote for when you lying in bed at night wishing your man was with you.
I used to keep this particular quote tacked to my bedroom wall when I was in a long-distance relationship. It helped a lot.
“No matter how many years pass, how much distance exists between us, wherever we are in the world – even if the universe itself tries to keep us separated – I will always find my way to you.”
Distance is nothing at all if you truly love someone. If you truly each other, you will find a way to make this work.
I had to move away for a job when I was in my mid-twenties. I asked my boyfriend to come with me, but he couldn’t. He was still studying. Sadly and frustratingly, we broke it off.
A few months later, he came to visit me. I hadn’t given him my address – it was too painful – but he tracked me down – and told me how much he missed me and still loved me.
“Some people can be so close to you even if physically far, they walk with you and stay near in every moment of your life.”
– Serena Roy
Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night and felt your partner lying next to you? They might be thousands of miles away from us, but when we love them we keep them at our side, always.
When we go for walks in the park, we keep them with us. When we go to work, we think about them and bring them next to us.
They might by physically far, but spiritually they are always next to us.
“Adventures are great, especially when the person you love is your destination.”
Isn’t falling in love with someone, no matter where they are, the greatest adventure of them all?
