50 Long-Distance Relationship Quotes To Get You Through Those Lonely Nights

Distance and time makes the heart grow fonder.

First, if you or someone you know is in a long-distance relationship, please accept the round of applause I am giving you all right now. I couldn’t imagine being apart from my significant other for more than a week, let alone weeks or months on end!

The real question is, how do you do it? How can you get through those days and nights without embracing your loved one, or setting up a coffee date with your partner when your workweek has just been too hectic?

The long-distance relationship quotes below prove that life isn’t easy when you’re far apart, but a lot of the time it is worth it.

Being miles apart from the person you love can feel like you two will never see each other. Even with your closest friends and family around, they won’t be able to give you the love your significant other would give you.

After all, the greatest love songs and poems may have come to fruition because of long-distance love.

Why is it that the strongest bonds are often miles apart from one another? There may be certain times in our lives where a long-distance romance isn’t something we’d consider. However, when you meet the person you truly love, distance is nothing but a mere pebble in your walk of life together.

Both of you know that this separation may be temporary, and you are two very emotionally strong people to get through it together.

One thing I will say is to stay strong. Do not give up on this relationship just because you may not be physically together.

What are some things you turn to for reassurance during these times? Here’s one thing to do: read the list below of our picks of the best long-distance relationship quotes that we have compiled just for you!

Use these uplifting quotes for the days where you’re feeling extra lonely, in need of a nostalgic feeling, or even just a relatable couple words.

1. We are still together.

“I don’t cry because we’ve been separated by distance, and for a matter of years. Why? Because for as long as we share the same sky and breathe the same air, we’re still together.”— Donna Lynn Hope

2. The distance can do strange things.

“I know we loved each other, but distance can do strange things to people …

100 Inspirational Love Quotes for Him or Her

Here’s a little inspiration to tell your love how you really feel.

Here’s the thing about love — it’s hard to put into words, no matter how deeply you feel it for your partner.

Luckily for you, we found 100 of the best, most inspirational love quotes for him or her to make finding different, new and creative ways to say “I love you” a whole lot easier.

Feeling love brings up all kinds of additional emotions that run the gamut from agony to ecstasy.

Loving someone can inspire you to accomplish some of the craziest and most amazing feats you’ll ever undertake.

Being in love can make you feel happier than you’ve ever been, sadder than you’ve ever been, and even angrier than you’ve ever been. It can elate you and deflate you at almost at the exact same time.

However, while most people can recognize the sensations they associate most closely with love fairly easily, finding just the right words to express those feelings is a far more difficult order.

People have searched for centuries to find the right ways to say, “I love you” for the first (or the billionth) time in order to try explaining those butterflies you get in your stomach, that warm fuzzy feeling in your head and that heart skipping a million beats in your chest.

But one thing we do know is that, whether you’ve loved and won or loved and lost, when love is real, it’s always worth it.

And while there are plenty of ways to express your love through body language and nonverbal communication, finding the perfect love quote that sums up exactly what you’re thinking and feeling can be pretty darn amazing.

Luckily, some of the world’s greatest artists, poets, musicians, authors and hopeless romantics (like ourselves) have managed to articulate the magic of love using words so simple and perfect, sharing them with the person you love can mean the world to you both.

Here are 100 of the best inspirational love quotes for him or her to share when you’re searching for new, creative ways to say, “I love you.”

Inspirational Love Quotes for Her

1. “To love is nothing. To be loved is something. But to love and be loved, that’s everything.” — T. Tolis

100 Best ‘I Love You Quotes’ For Soulmates And Kindred Spirits

Because you can never say those 3 little words too much.

Saying “I love you” to your soulmate never goes out of style.

Those three little words say it all — whether you’re saying them to someone’s face or offering them in the form of simple love quotes you send them on social media, in texts, DMs, or even in good, old-fashioned greeting cards. Or do they?

No one can deny the power of hearing the person you love actually say “I love you” out loud.

Once strung together, those three words are a big deal, and saying them to the love of your life is just as meaningful the 500th time as it is the first time around.

If you’re true soulmates and kindred spirits, you’ll never get tired of hearing them said, and you’ll never get tired of saying them to him or her in return.

In fact, when you’re in a long-term romantic relationship with someone you truly love, it’s easy to fall into the (totally beautiful, even healthy) habit of saying “I love you” multiple times a day, every day.

But when “I love you” becomes the new “Good morning,” “Goodnight,” and “I gotta run, but could you please pick up some more almond milk later if you get a chance?” — it can start to fall on, well, let’s not say deaf ears, but certainly less swept-of-their-feet ears.

While those three words certainly mean a lot, there are plenty of other ways to express the unconditional love you feel that you may not have thought about much.

In fact, there are as many different ways to say, “I love you” as there are reasons to say it — and then some!

It can be fun and romantic to mix up your daily I love you’s and find new ways to make your partner’s heart melt all over again.

Of course, we can’t all be Shakespeare.

For some of us, words of affirmation simply aren’t our primary love language, and probably never will be, so managing to string those three little words together usually feels like an accomplishment in and of itself.

Fortunately, there’s nothing wrong with borrowing a little romantic inspiration in the form of quotes about love taken from authors, poets, movies, songs … you name it!

Whether you’ve been saying it for years or it’s the very first time, get ready to make …

50 Inspirational Love Quotes From Famous People Guaranteed To Make You Feel Things

Feel something going pitter-patter? That’s your heart, silly!

As Plato once said, “At the touch of love, everyone becomes a poet.”

Don’t agree? It’s not hard to see why.

Many tongue-tied lovers stumble over themselves when trying to figure out just the right way to say “I love you.”

After all, it’s not easy to fully express exactly how it is you feel about the person you love most.

It’s not like most of us walk around with a endless supply of our favorite love quotes at the top of our mind and on the tip of our tongue. Honestly, if we did, we might sound even more awkward than we do otherwise.

Luckily, however, the internet is an endless resource for finding inspirational phrases and saying that poets, musicians, artists, philosophers and screenwriters have written or uttered, putting this most elusive and complex feeling into words.

We certainly can’t all expect to be Shakespeare, Joyce, or a Brontë sister, but we absolutely can sift through the treasure trove of quotes about love which they and other brilliant minds created for us all.

While every love is unique, there is a collective nature to the emotions involved in that heady mix of passion, fear, joy, worry, excitement and trepidation. So even if some of the most famous love quotes you’ve read in the past did little to speak to your particular soul, we can guarantee that there are at least several gathered here that will make you say, “Yes. That.”

Of course, you don’t have to take our word for it. Take your time, letting the words glide through your mind, heart and soul. When your heart beats quickly and you can’t help but think of your own him or her, you’ll know you found the one to save (and maybe even to share with them).

So pour yourself a glass of wine, relax and picture the person who makes your heart dance. Then enjoy the beautiful words written, spoken or sung by some of the most gifted minds in the world.

Here are our favorite 50 inspirational love quotes from famous authors, artists, musicians, movies and more to help you let him or her know exactly how you feel.

1. Love is fairly simple

“Love consists of this: two solitudes that meet, protect and greet each other.” — Rainer Maria Rilke

37 Hilariously Funny Love Quotes & Puns That Will Make Your Day

So corny, but so good.

I’m not sure if love is blind but it’s definitely hilarious at times. You just have to look at it from the right perspective, so using these funny love quotes and love puns is a great way to lighten the mood.

When you enter into a committed relationship, you’re two (usually) imperfect human beings trying to understand yourselves, each other, and the world as best as you can. Not to mention you have the added pressure of understanding each other as parts of a whole.

Mistakes are bound to happen between two honest people who love each other and are making an effort to sustain the bond. Due to that inevitable reality, it’s important to not take everything so seriously. Otherwise, your relationship dies out with our sanity.

Humor is good for bonding and for dealing with stressful situations. And, of course, for a compatible relationship it’s important for two people to know each other’s unique personalities and views.

From funny to silly to downright corny, you can’t deny that love puns make you smile.

And being that we all need a good laugh every now and again, check out these 37 funny love quotes and puns that are guaranteed to make you giggle.

1. Drumroll please…

“It was an emotional wedding. Even the cake was in tiers.”

2. Oh, you got us good.

“To some, marriage is a word. To others, a sentence.”

3. Smart + funny = winning.

“When the TV repairman got married, the reception was excellent.”

4. Be wary of what your wife says.

“My wife tells me I’m a skeptic, but I don’t believe a word she says.”

5. Not nice.

50 Best Short Romantic Love Quotes For Him Or Her

Because we love love.

It’s sometimes difficult to find the right words in a world where so much has already been said. It seems like every feeling has already been felt.

Quite honestly, it makes me feel a bit unoriginal. But when your favorite person smiles at you from across a room, all that fades away. It’s you and them, and no existential question of, “Am I different from everyone else?” can stop the moment from happening.

People find new romantic words and sayings for love everyday — not to show off, but to express something that is their own.

The human experience is impossible to replicate, and thus the love quotes that make us feel something other than alone are the ones to hold on to.

People write to feel connected and we read to learn more about ourselves and others.

As John Green once said, “Maybe our favorite quotations say more about us than about the stories and people we’re quoting.”

Maybe he’s right.

There are many theories on soulmates. My personal favorite is that there is one person for you in the world who is your 100%. Throughout life, you will meet 70’s and 80’s. If you’re lucky, you might end up with someone in the 90’s. And that’s good enough.

But there are a lot of people who are much less cynical than I who believe in people being connected by “the red string of fate”. They believe that life contains some magic that leads you exactly to who you’re meant to be with. It’s a hopeful perspective and one that I want to be true but we can never be sure.

The way people talk about the ones they love make me feel as though it might be. Maybe movies have gotten to my head; poets and songwriters have painted too pretty a picture of the world; or perhaps they know something I don’t. And I really hope to learn it one day.

If you are lucky enough to find your other half, these short, sweet love quotes are for you.

1. Love is worth it.

“I will never stop trying. Because when you find the one, you never give up.” —​ “Crazy Stupid Love”

2. You’re all I want.

“I never want to stop making memories with you.” — Pierre Jeanty

3. We contain a universe within ourselves.

“And in her smile I …

21 Sexy BDSM Love Quotes About D/S Relationships To Make You Purr

It’s getting seriously hot in here …

When most people imagine BDSM relationships, their thoughts jump to images of “50 Shades Of Grey”, bondage, abuse, blood and/or demeaning objectification.

Relationships within the world of BDSM — an acronym meaning Bondage/Discipline, Dominance/submission, and Sadism/Masochism — vary widely.

So while yes, some of those descriptors apply to some BDSM relationships, they certainly do not apply to all, and certainly not without the consent, interest, desire and fulfillment of both partners in mind at all times.

At the core of any relationship — vanilla, kinky, friendly, casual, or even professional — is an “exchange of power.”

In fact, many traditional marriages falter because of a lack of communication in regard to this dynamic.

Prior to an engagement and wedding, each individual has an idealized vision of how power will be exchanged within their marriage.

Some imagine a 50/50 division of household, financial and parenting responsibilities. Some imagine a traditional household à la the 1950s, with the husband taking on financial obligations and the wife taking on child-rearing and household duties, or vice versa. Some imagine shared financial duties between spouses, with a nanny and housekeeper taking care of everything at home.

The variations are endless.

None of these arrangements are inherently good or bad. The trouble arises when a couple marries or otherwise makes a long-term commitment without having expressed these perspectives and ideas to each other beforehand.

The common fall-back of “We love each other, so we’ll make it work” basically guarantees a trip to divorce court.

BDSM relationships can be particularly satisfying because, when consciously formed, there is direct and ongoing communication about roles and responsibilities.

Whether the relationship takes the shape of Dom/sub, Domme/sub, Daddy/babygirl, Master/pet, Master/slave, Master/servant, Top/bottom or anything else you could probably think of, the keys to success are the intrinsic trust, transparency and shared control which must be present at all times.

And, of course, on a purely primal level, these dynamics played out in the bedroom are just so damn hot.

If you can read these 21 BDSM love quotes representing the best and hottest of D/s relationships without steaming up the windows, hey, that’s cool! To each their own.

(But I have a teeny, tiny feeling you may just like what you see …)

1. “When a man truly loves a woman she becomes his weakness. When a woman truly loves a man he …

50 Relationship Quotes To Help You Make It Through Quarantine Together

Living room fort anyone?

Relationships are the best thing since sliced bread. With billions of people on this rotating rock we call home, it is an almost impossible notion to think there is one person out there who was made for us. One person to laugh with, one person to cry with, one person to travel the world with, forever.

The wait for that special someone to appear in your life can seem like a dreaded million years. Once the moment comes, you will least expect it! Finding your “one” is a long process for a reason. Spending the rest of your life with one person seems scary, but if you have the right person by your side, it will be an awfully fun adventure.

In the wake of the Coronavirus, a respiratory virus that has infected more than 500,000 across the globe, many countries have implemented rules of staying at home for days and weeks on end.

Social distancing regulations are in effect as millions of people are staying home to contain the virus from spreading.

These are very uneasy times for everyone around the world, and what’s worse is trying to find peace in staying home for 24 hours a day. Tensions in the household may rise when you and your partner are cooped up for so long together. Yes, these are the ones who you want to spend forever with, but you didn’t think it’d hit you this hard, huh?

Both of you might want to rip each other’s arms off by the end of this quarantine, but know that this too shall pass. Do not let fear or worry creep into your homes. Spend this time getting to know one another once more, and give each other the space you both deserve.

50 Self Care Quotes About Putting Yourself First

The key to loving someone else is to start by loving yourself.

There are many times in our lives where we give our family, friends and significant others more love than we think we can produce. Sometimes we give so much and don’t bother to expect anything back.

You are not the only person who has forgotten to love the most important figure in life: you. We become wrapped up in trying to help others and give them an immense amount of love that we forget to check in on ourselves from time to time. Self care is important — actually the most important. The moment where we neglect our own mind and emotions is the day where the storms will constantly hit home.

The reason you may fall short of taking care of yourself is beyond the stigma of “not loving ourselves.” Life gets in the way, especially when you’ve got a family to look after and a job that demands your attention 24/7.

There is no reason to push yourself beyond your limits. Everyone deserves a chance to sit down and breathe for a moment. Without caring for yourself, there are a lot of mental and physical strains that will prevent you from living the life you deserve.

You may become stressed out, anxiety-filled, and plain out exhausted from the most simple activities. When you forget about yourself and tend to other’s needs, who is there to care for you? Practicing self-care is crucial during any time in our life.

Start by waking up every morning and doing a 15-minute yoga session. Look in the mirror and tell yourself three things you admire! These may seem cliche and of course, you are not obligated to do anything you do not want to do. However, it may be for the best to start learning to love and appreciate you no matter what is going on.

Our collection of the best self-care quotes are powerful reminders to love yourself despite the things going on around you, and to put yourself first.

1. An act of survival.

“I have come to believe that caring for myself is not self-indulgent. Caring for myself is an act of survival.” — Audre Lorde

2. Do not forget your neighbors.

“As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.” — Maya Angelou…
