Sometime last year, I met this guy on Grindr. It was supposed to be a hookup, no strings attached, because he doesn’t live in Nigeria. But one thing led to another, and I was at his place the weekend after our hookup and the one after that and on and on for about 5 months before he left. It was a very emotional departure, oh Lord, I cried. And I don’t cry, like, I am quite the hard-hearted bitch.
We shared something deep. We fell in love. The distance thing is killing me. We talk, chat and video-call every day, but I can’t help but want more. Breaking up with him is not an option I can envisage because I’m insanely in love with him. He really tries his best though with constant communication and stuff. With the different time zones and work shifts, I don’t get enough of him, but we chat and do all our regulars every day.
What do I do? I want more of him but he isn’t here and I love him so much and I can’t let distance fuck things up. This is the first real relationship I’ve been in.
