after the most amazing weekend with my babyboy
In 7th grade I met my best friend in the whole world, but he had to move to SC. A year later I moved to WA and he has family up here. We have always stayed in touch. A month ago I fell for him and he fell for me. I’ve been in a ldr for a week but it feels like forever and that we’re going to be together forever. I love him♥
hey there! i’m amanda, better known as the panda on me and my girlfriend’s shared tumblr: thepandathegiraffe. her name is jessica.
we met online about 3 years ago on a forum she was running and became fast friends. we IMed, texted, skyped and messaged on Facebook. i didn’t realize there was such an age gap between us at first because we had so much in common. like down to home life, likes/dislikes, etc. it was crazy. (just so you know, i’m currently 24 and she’s 18 next month.)
anyway we spent that year hanging out and sharing everything really. she was a really great long distance friend.. like a pen pal, almost. in august of 2011 we started talking more regularly (like, daily). and in september, she went to pride with her friends in vegas and i went to a gay club in delaware with my friends. and i got drunk, ha, and made out with some girl and immediately told her about it. she made a comment like “i wish i couldn’t made out with someone here.” and i said “psh, i would’ve made out with you!” and she said “really?” and i said “of course!” haha and pretty much the rest is history.
we spent the next month texting nonstop and spending hours each night on the phone talking about everything and anything at all. on skype on october 12, 2011, jess asked me to be her girlfriend. and that’s what we’ve been ever since. i met her for the first time in december 2011, and visited again in june and november. we’ve only spent about 3.5 weeks together in person, but this june we’ll be spending about 40 days solid together and couldn’t be more excited. she’s coming to stay at my apartment in new jersey!
we’re trying to make plans to move closer to one another soon, but we have a lot to get through before we can make it happen. keep your fingers crossed for us. :)
anyway, we keep our tumblr updated with stuff about us - we also answer questions and share other peoples’ stories.. so we encourage you to come tell your story to us!
also!! this summer we’re going to be in new york city for pride 2013 and would love to meet some of our tumblr friends!! drop us an ask or shoot us an e-mail for more information.
thanks for reading! xoxo the panda
everybody underestimates just how hard long distance relationships are. people think its pointless that me and my boyfriend dont see eachother; and they’ll feel like laughing when i tell them we’re going to be together for the rest of our lives; but i couldnt care less if im honest. my life is nothing without him and i really just dont see how i could be without him now. we’re gonna prove to everybody that you can be young and in love, and it’s not all about the sex. not gonna lie, it’s the hardest thing i have ever had to experience, i would tell everybody to never get themselves involved in one because it causes so much pain. other couples take for granted just the ability to physically be together, and it angers me so much. there are times where i just wanna give up… when our heads aren’t straight and we say things that we dont actually want, just because we think its the right thing to do. but we’ve come to realise, after nearly 2 years of being together, we just can’t be without eachother. and there is absolutely no point in putting ourselves through the pain of breaking up, just because we miss eachother now, and ruining a potential amazing life ahead of us. so now, we just look forward to the future. you’ll probably think i’m crazy, but oh well, we plan to get married and start a family together and i cant fucking wait.
if you want to talk to someone who understands or need any advice, please don’t hesitate to leave me a message in my ask, i’d be more than happy to help :)
“Distance, is just a space in between, it’s only as far apart as our hearts will let it.”
Well a few months ago I was told I was able to go on a california trip to compete with the best of the best. My passion in video had taken a long way and plus I needed a break from all the constant work and just stress. It began to build, as the months came closer in I began to get excited and more aware that as the days began to come to a close before I knew it I was in LA. After a whole day of just riding on the airplane our schedule was just strictly disneyland for 3 straight days ( honestly it was tiring ) The first day I was pretty confident in seeing my girlfriend because I was told we would be at downtown disney right after the firework show was over. I had told my girlfriend over and over again that i’m not guaranteed that we would go to DTD after the whole show ended because my teacher insisted us to ride more ride. I kept asking about going to DTD i could see that my teacher was pissed off because I basically asked him everytime we got off a ride. We were on this stupid river tour ride that was right next to indiana jones right when that fireworks boomed in the sky I knew she was staring at the same sky. With tears in her eyes, waiting for me. That first night she waited about 4-5 hours for me. I was a no show. Of course I tried my best to see her but my teacher was on a tight security he counted each and every one of us before he left a place, if not he’d call and once you don’t answer the 2nd time he’d call our parents. And yeah I should of took a chance but I didnt wanna make a selfish action and my mom pay for a thousand dollar ticket just because on one selfish act.
The second day I wanted to think of an idea of how to see her the whole time I was riding ride my girlfriend was insisting to see me again. That say we were in Downtown Disney. My teacher was making us get out as fast as possible only because he wanted us to sleep a bit early that night. So I told my girlfriend to come to the hotel and i’d meet her outside by the hotel. I told me room mates that i’d hang out with the other room peeps to play league. I was waiting by the stairs and looking our for her and I told her to get out of the lobby and come up the stairs. I saw her and my smile was just there, seeing her sister kind of caught me off guard because she had told me she would be alone. The first words she said to me was, “You ASSHOLE.” and she demanded me for a kiss which made me laugh a bit because I thought she would be shy but in reality I was the shy guy. And slightly scared because it felt like her sisters eyes were drilling through my mind. ( Everything her friends said on facebook kind of discouraged me to see her, but I pushed through all those words and saw her.) The feeling of her lips and seeing PJ (bears that we claim as our child) giving her devin (baby bear) and seeing her smile. The first night was pretty quick because she had to leave early. That night I couldnt stop thinking about her.
The next day I wanted to see her again before I left to LA for my competition so I asked her if she could drive up here one last time to see me before I leave. Leaving my room was no problem but someone wanted to follow me and I said no cause they didnt know where I was really going. I brought PJ with me that day because he missed her also. Seeing her cousin kinda made me nervous, I was going to shake her hand and all but she left downstairs and we were alone. She had brought me the things she was suppose to send me years ago but I guess i’m glad I have them now. That last night in DTD I had made her a bracelet for her and me with the name bunbun and mooshy. I also bought her a mickey and minne kissing keychain, there’s a magnet so if you put mickey and minnie together that close their eyes when they kiss. That last night there was alot of kissing and smiling and talking (mostly her), I just loved listening to her. The happiness in her voice just made me feel at home.
Now I’m just waiting on to see her again. Waiting to take her to disneyland and just have a small date :3 <3
Take her to tower of terror. (She hates this ride lol )
P.S. Thanks to Talia (her best friend), sorry for being such a big asshole making you guys walk around. I promise it wasn’t on purpose my teacher just can’t make up his mind sometimes. I was just honestly scared at first because that first night made such a bad impression. And when I read all the comments from her sister and all her friends I just felt like I didnt deserve it anymore. If it wasn’t for you. I wouldn’t have met her personally. It great to know that someone has hope in us. I’m really sorry, I promise i’ll owe you a turkey leg when I get there :)
Hope this encourages all of you to keep fighting no matter what obstacles are in your way. Please follow our blog if you’d like and my and my girlfriend will try our best to answer all your questions :3 We also might make a comic so stay in tune for that.
