This blog post will be a bit of a story time.
We’re going to take y’all back but not too far back because this story takes place during our first year of dating in 2016. This will be the story of our long distance experiences and whether or not it’s a deal breaker.
So for those of you who are new here, Hannah and I met on Tinder at the end of April in 2016. Although we met on Tinder, we never took Tinder seriously. We just wanted to see who was out there, never expecting to actually meet someone in person, let alone someone we actually liked.
I have generalized anxiety disorder with some social anxiety thrown in there, so at the time Hannah and I matched on Tinder, meeting people in person felt impossible to me. I fully disclosed to Hannah right away that I had generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety so that I didn’t feel like I was hiding anything. If I was ever going to meet her in person, I was going to need to be transparent and vice versa. Hannah didn’t think anything of it, if anything, it made her want to meet me even more.
