Long-Distance Relationship.. (Diary Logs #5)

Hello Readers! I hope your week was good & even though it wasn't, TGIF, right!? Talking about Fridays, it's time for another Diary Logs post!! This time it's a fictional page from the diary of a girl who's in a long-distance relationship, thinking about everything, all over again...


Dear Diary,
Another day has passed. I miss him immensely. It's not like we're on different time zones, but sometimes even being in the same country, but miles apart, is all it takes to miss someone. Let me tell you when we last talked. An hour before on Skype. It was a 1.5 hours video call, I think. Before that, we were chatting for a while. And we call each other up at least 6 times a day. And those calls can go anywhere from "I'm in a long queue, what's up?" to "My manager has not come in today, so we can snap all day!" to "Need your opinion on these shoes I want to buy." to "I wish you were here. I love you." So, I didn't know when I became that kind of person, but he's not just my boyfriend or my fiancé. He's my best friend & that's where everything comes to perspective.

I remember when we were children. That's right; I knew him since forever! He was always the smart one and yet he always, always allowed me to be a know-it-all. He went along with my crazy thoughts & ideas. When we were kids, I loved spending time with him. There was just something about him that made me naturally trust him.
But, as we grew up, we grew apart. We were friends only when we were kids. And after our school ended, we barely talked. And, I suppose neither one of us noticed it, really. And then, one day, years later, we met each other on the street! I cannot state the randomness of things! We talked for a while & then met up later on to talk some more. We laughed about childhood, pretended to be managing adulthood & shared so many laughs that it felt like it was just like old times. Nothing had changed.

As the day became young, we did too.
As the night fell upon, we fell in love too.

That was that day. And there's today. We are engaged. While I'm working in Mumbai, he's working in Kolkata. We both love our jobs too much. We also love each other too much. We have our differences, but that doesn't stop us from being together. We are not 'working through' our relationship or preaching about how difficult it is to be in a 'long-distance relationship. We're just giving each other as much as ourselves as possible. Because, we'll have rest of the future to be together. I love how things are right now.

I love him.
He loves me. 
We're best friends.

What more could I ask for?
