Anonymous: I had a feeling my ldr gf was talking to other guys. Not proud of it but I catfished her to find out and she swapped nudes. She says this is the only time she's done it and she only did it because she felt bad about herself but how can I trust her now? I love her and really want to believe her but it was hard before, now with this I just can't see how it can work. I'm devastated! I want to forgive and move on but I feel the trust has just gone.

longdistancestories:

You’re on the verge of deciding between two conflicting positions, and it sounds like you know that. If you forgive, you have to make a commitment with your partner to rebuild trust, and if you feel as though the trust is completely gone, there is no way to forgive and you would have to, then, move on from the relationship.

I’m a realist: if the trust is gone for you, it’s gone and if you’ve committed to that realization there’s not much else I can say, other than I think that loss of trust is valid reason to end a relationship, because it’s not fair to either of you.

On the other hand, if things feel a little bit more gray for you than that, and you’re having a hard time thinking about what to do, consider how your girlfriend is handling this. Has she been understanding of your need to discuss what has happened? Has she accepted, and owned up to the fact that she has done something that violated the standards the two of you have set forth in your relationship? Has she helped with any sort of process to figure out how to move the relationship forward from here? Consider this as you try to pull more toward one choice or another.

Of course, I feel compelled to say that, in any rough situation, yelling gets you nowhere. It’s critical for the two of you to have a mature conversation about what has happened in order for you to have closure either way (closure of the relationship, or closure to move on from the situation in the relationship). It will be painful, but it will be worth it, no matter what you decide.

It’s 12:02 and I still want you..

10:49 and hey, look, I still want you.
Someone asked what it was that I like about you and that made me realize that I never really sat down to think about it, because I never had to. I just somehow knew that I was attracted to you, like gravity pulled me closer to you each time I try to move away.

So I said, “I like him because the first second we met, it all clicked. There was no need to put up a front or break down walls, it was all effortless. I laughed at his jokes and he laughed at mine, even when they weren’t funny but it was humorous to us and I guess that’s important. I like the fact that I didn’t have to try to keep up the conversation, it flowed gently and I didn’t need to cover my mouth when I would blurt something out and he never thought I needed a filter. He understood, or he tried his best to understand the things that I went through with my family and my friends and myself. And for the things he didn’t get, he listened.

He listened carefully and he remembered it all. Like once when we were eating, he said he wanted to offer me a bite of his chicken but I didn’t eat meat so I couldn’t have it anyway. I thought that was sincerely nice of him since no one remembered about my diet even after the millionth time I’d remind them. But he did, and I only had to mention it once. I never had to remind him after that.

When it comes to him, I like his motivation. I like his mind. I like the way his brain functions, a bit more mature than anyone I’ve ever known. I like that he cares more about Sunday mornings than Friday nights.I like that he enjoys Thirty Thursdays but can handle a week filled with hard work and late nights. He’s like that son every mother wants to have, aspiring to be someone some day even though I think he’s more than halfway there. And he is a mama’s boy, and I love that about him even more.

Above it all, I think I really like him for the way he makes me better. He makes me want to be a better person. He, is a golden child. He is so good; my best friend once called me a Saint but I am Satan next to him.He motivates me to find a place for myself, to work for a title, and to never give up. He once asked to read my work and I said no, but in my head I was thinking yes, hell yes. With him, I never had to be a simmered down version of myself. I didn’t care about how loudly I laughed and how obnoxious it sounded, I was me. I was free. And I have to say, the thing I like about him the most was that he always gave me an answer instead of an excuse, no matter how many questions I asked, and the ones I was afraid to ask.”

What is it like
to have someone
who knows your body
better than you do
your own,
to have this person
trace their finger
down your spine
and when they whisper
three words
you feel every hair
on your body stick up in response,
with the shivers going
all the way into your heart
and somewhere in your soul.
What is it like
to feels someone’s burning touch
while they are just gazing
into your eyes,
to taste their lips,
one kiss,
a second,
and one more after another
and feeling like it’s the first time
every time.
What is it like
to fall asleep next to someone
on a Jack Daniels kind of Saturday night
and find them drinking coffee
right besides you
the next morning?
