On long distance relationships, there are times that you almost feel like your other half is right there with you. With a stretch of your arms coupled with the familiarity and memories you know, they’re there with you. So close you can almost feel their warmth.

Distance has never been a barrier for love when two hearts belongĀ together. But the sense of touch is one of the five love languages that is particularly challenging in this instance. You pine for their return, you miss the simple act of holding hands. The much anticipated return of your loved one and a hug from them is enough to warm your heart. And just like that, in that embrace, all the elements collide into one and everything is whole again.
