Long distance relationship is not for the weak.

Your Significant Other is not always there when you want to share the joy and sorrow in your life.

So you are saving all you want to say in text messages or video chats.

You may also have to wait hours till they respond from the across the country or from the other side of the world.

It’s difficult, and sometimes even painful.

But it definitely makes us stronger. And you are not alone! 

From all over the world, the amazing artists who have the same LDR experience are documenting their emotions with drawings.

Here are 16 comics that resonates with the bitter-sweetness every long-distance couple has.

If you are in an LDR and tear up seeing one of these pictures, hang on there for what’s worth waiting for.

If you’ve never been in a long distance relationship, you will never understand how powerful text messages are.

But they will give you the strength to face those lonely nights.

  1. Love this article and the comics. Out of all of the comics, number #2 totally hit home. The hardest part of being together is knowing that it will come to an end. The day before he or I is scheduled to leave, I get this heavy, sinking pit down deep in my stomach. No matter how hard I try fighting it , it is always the same. It’s almost like death in a way as they are here one day (physically) and gone the next. It’s a heart crushing, gut wrenching blow!

        Talking about the mixed feelings of seeing each other again. Hope you guys close the distance soon!

  2. 8, 10, 11 & 16 I can say resonate with me but number 10 hits the hardest. I ALWAYS save our conversations and record them in my journal as part of our story to look back over. It really does help me get through and not give up and love songs will play in my head that make me create a soundtrack to the moments. One recommendation would be ‘Crush’ by 3Gs. I love this post, thank you for your support and encouragement. Please keep up the great work.

  3. I think it’s really cool there are some people that can understand that LDR’s can be just as amazing as a normal relationship. 4 hit me so hard I cried though XDD My bf will like arrive at the airport, stun me into a squealing puddle with his handsomeness, and then literally be like “I don’t want to leave yet.” XDD I remember the first time, we sat on the rocking chair in complete silence, a few days away from him leaving again, and said nothing as we rocked and cuddled. It was super hard. And 16 and 5 are so my bf XDD He’s always falling asleep mid conversation xD (10 hour difference). And OHHH MY GOD 6!! There is not enough eye roll in the world to explain the awkwardness and embarrassment this brings XD I’m really glad I found this post. I experienced a lot of things and will be sending them to my bf xD
