Long Distance “Relationships”

by Dr. Smooth's pupil


If you know these girls,
don't move anywhere
Seems like everybody knows at least one lost soul that pretends to be entangled in a relationship with someone who isn’t really there to have a relationship with. Times have changed, jobs have moved, airplane tickets are cheap and man and woman have lost their balls (well, women never had balls, it’s a way of talking, alright). Scared to death as we are of not succeeding in life (what da hell does that mean anyway, a good explanation of this earn you a trip to my house, ok, just email me), people move for jobs, for school and whatever else, which in itself is ok, except when you desperately cling on to the golden chains of your love for another human being. Alright, I am a bit rough; sometimes it is worthy to protect these chains as much as possible, that is if you have found someone that is worth the chaining.

Still, it seems inconceivable that someone would consciously put themselves through the pains of long distance loving and yet people do it all the time. C’est a n’y rien comprendre (learn French or google it). Really, what do you do for things like sex, kissing, smelling, getting into fights, solving your fights, basically all the important things that you need to do but can’t when you’re far away.

Technology has went a long way, you seem to be closer than ever to anyone (MSN, cell phones, video phones, SMS, long distance cards, webcams…) but it’s all an elaborate lie put in place to get you to max your cell phone bill. This meaningless communication just creates an even bigger gap between people and I have figured out why, so listen to this wisdom and even take notes: it’s because it does nothing more than temporarily create a mirage, a vision of that loved person, and once the vision is gone you are just left with an even bigger feeling of loss and emptiness. An you try to fulfill this void and you spend another 30 $ on some more useless long distance calls; they’re fighting against drugs when they should be fighting against phone companies providing quick fixes to all those long distance junkies out there.

It must’ve been easier and saner back n the days, no phone, no internet, nothing but maybe some mail from one month to the other. At least you can move on with you’re life and hopefully be pleasantly surprised when the loved one actually returns alive from whichever African or American or Asian adventure they were on.

The conclusion is, if it is worth it, then stay where you are and don’t be forced to go long distance. If it is not worth it, then end it and don’t pretend to be attached to something that isn’t worth it, cause you very well know that you’re not really attached.
