You want to be with that special person so bad that you're almost angry with everyone else who's not them. Long-distance makes it so much harder, because it takes so long to get used to them being there - every time you see each other, is a little like falling in love all over again.
So knowing your partner has someone who gets to spend time with them when you don't? Green-eyed monsters have been let loose for lot less.
So true! Currently, I'm not the best person to be around, as my thoughts and attention go to her, while I know she is seeing other persons and while I know I won't see her before some longer time. It's like I don't know what to do with myself... I guess I have to accept the facts for what they are, she is poly, I'm mono (willing to try poly)
