Any long-distance couple knows the struggle of being far away from the one they love.
Chinese-born artist Viola Wang
brilliantly captures the pains and joys of being in a long distance relationship by illustrating her own. She wrote in a post on Bored Panda
“My boyfriend and I have been in a long distance relationship for 3 years now.
“I decided to capture what it’s like to be in a long distance relationship for us through drawings. My style of illustration was inspired by British Illustrator Philippa Rice’s comic ‘Soppy’.”
For couples in the same boat, these comics are all too real.
You are constantly missing them.
You deal with time differences all the time.
Birthdays are heavy on the heart.
You sometimes have to deal with internet connection problems.
What spending the day with them looks like.
You see random things that will remind you of them.
Flight tickets can get expensive when you want to visit each other.
You feel the excitement of planning to see them.
You count down the days.
Then the day arrives…
And you are finally reunited.
You appreciate every moment together after being separate for so long.
It’s almost like you were never apart.
The day they have to leave is the hardest…
But distance is nothing in the face of true love.
And you count the days until you will see each other again.
