Saying hello is the best thing ever

Whilst other couples take this for granted, you, on the other hand, long for that hello, that tight hug when you meet them is the best thing ever.

Sexting isn’t a once in a while thing

This becomes a routine for the both of you. This is the only way you can get any form of intimacy and pleasure until your next visit.

Periods can end your life, literally!

It’s time for your monthly visit and your periods decide to start on that very weekend, death! You will try all the remedies and methods under the sun that will put them on hold for a while, well until you get some.

You always have to do something

Cuddling is all well and good but due to limitations you can’t afford to spend the entire weekend snuggled up in bed. You need to squeeze in a date, sex, visits, and everything else that normal couples do.

Trust comes easily

If you’re really in it for the long haul then you have no choice but to trust your partner. Without trust you’ll definitely go nuts.

You’re more organised

Because you’re always on a countdown, you know exactly what you’ll be doing in the next three weeks without the help of calendar.

Goodbye’s are the worst

You dread saying goodbye’s because it never gets better, everytime feels like the first time and your tears take time to dry.
