Long distance relationships suck. It doesn't matter if it's long distance with your boyfriend, your best friends, or your family the situation is not a desirable one. Unfortunately, I'm one of those people who seems to be constantly dealing with long distance relationships.
For four years I had one with my family and friends back home, now I have one with my boyfriend and friends in DC. Don't even get me started on my other friends that find themselves scattered across the United States. Although, thanks to the iChat, texting, and other technological advances we don't have it as hard as they did years back it still isn't easy at times.
So here are my top ten songs that get me through those tough times when I'm missing my loved ones, whereever they might be at the current moment. The lyric excerpts following my selections easily sum up their reasoning.
