“The biggest struggle is that I don’t always know what is going on all the time. Because he lives hours away in DeLand, Florida, the only way I might know if something is going on in his life is if he tells me. We text as much as we can. He works during the day, but we talk at night. We also take turns visiting each other during breaks. I don’t think that long distance relationships are impossible, but you have to be very mature and committed for it to work.”

“The greatest challenge is finding out when we can see each other. One time we went 11 months without seeing each other. That was very hard for both of us. The three-hour time difference in Los Angeles, California is hard too because I have to get up early for work and go to bed when its dinnertime for him. We usually get to see each other about three times a year. We’ve been long distance since High School and I’m very happy that we have been able to keep it up.”

Marc McLendon, sophomore
“We have been dating since winter break. We have known each other since preschool and I have always had a crush on her. She finally gave me a chance over the break. We are both from Frisco, Alabama and she goes to University of Alabama. We try to see each other every three weeks. We try to FaceTime every few days. It’s hard sometimes because of loneliness. There are times when I wish she was there, but she isn’t and that is hard for me but she is worth it.”

Emily Stenman, junior
“Its difficult, but worth it because he is my best friend. We dated for a year before college took us to different states (he is currently at Geneva College in Pennsylvania) which allowed us to have a good foundation. We are both from Northern Virginia and went to High School together. It makes going home a lot more exciting. We text every day and Skype once a week.”

Katie Brooks, junior
“My boyfriend and I are both from Woodstock, Georgia which is how we met. We talk every day over text and FaceTime. FaceTime is harder to do since we are busy with work and school. Its not the same as if we both went to Berry because we don’t see each other all the time to still talk to each other often. We usually have to plan in advance when I am able to go home or when he can come visit me here.”
