Thank goodness for the 21st century hey. Can you imagine being in a long distance relationship where you could only write letters? I mean, that is super romantic but a FaceTime every now and again really makes a difference.
In 2018 long-distance relationships are made possible through FaceTime, Snapchat, and a lot of patience. Currently in 2018, we are lucky enough to begin long-distance relationships and have the capabilities to stay close and in touch through technology. This might mean we end up spending a lot of time on our phones, but who doesn’t? Even though we have all of these amazing technologies, we still can’t help missing our SO every day. Check out these 10 GIFs that accurately describe your long distance relationship and see if you can relate!
1. When you know you’re finally seeing bae this week
It is finally time! It is this week! You just know that this week is suddenly going to become the longest week in the history of the world. But, it is FINALLY going to happen and you wake up with a determined and excited smile on your face every morning.
2. Getting cute
Knowing that you are finally going to get to see your SO means its time for some self grooming and beauty prep. Whether its an all over body shave or perhaps a time to start using deodorant again. Maybe you are finally going to change out of those trackies! Whatever the case you definitely want to put in the effort.
3. Feelin shy
Maybe you haven’t seen bae for ages. When you spot their cute face coming through the crowd you suddenly get butterflies and feel overwhelmingly shy. Did they always look that good? Oh my…
4. When bae has to leave again
You can’t go so soon. *sad face* You waited out the longest week in the world and now it’s already time for them to go again. You ask, why are you leaving me? Please don’t go 🙁
5. When bae has only just left
They are only five minutes out the door but you know this is now the longest time until you get to see them again. Chocolate becomes your new best friend. When will I see them again? Will I ever see them again? Oh the dramatic despair you borrow from the angsty teen next door.
6. When it’s a surprise visit
They have totally blindsided you! You wondered why they hadn’t responded to your messages in a while… surprise! It’s the best kind of surprise too.
7. When your phone is only on 1%
And you can see they are typing so s l o w l y. I am running out of time! I guess this is another way God or the universe likes to test you. Relying on your phone is pretty essential for your long distant relationship. Better invest in a portable power pack.
8. When they suddenly call you
Maybe your SO isn’t always very available. Or maybe you’re in different time zones. Whatever the case, this means their calls are very important. Having to pause what your doing is sometimes a necessity.
9. Thinking about how cute they looked
You’ll just be day-dreaming and then you catch yourself with a cheeky smile on your face. Didn’t bae look CUTE. And you can’t wait to see them again. *winky face*
10. Getting an unexpected nude in public
That was NOT what you expected as your sat with your mates or work colleagues. Avoid trying to throw your phone away in fear. And you don’t want to make a big deal of it so people ask you. But DAMN that was a shock.
Thank the lordy lord for technology then hey. Looks like it’s an essential part of a long distant relationship. We hope you enjoyed these GIFs, send them to your long distance SO if you have one and see if they can relate!
