We grow up reading about how Cinderella lost a shoe at midnight, how Beauty was kissed awake from eternal slumber and immediately fell in love with her rescuer.

10 Struggles of being in a Long Distance Relationship (Especially when you're a Virgo)!

7. You miss them but you understand some times there's really nothing you can do about it. 

8. You're constantly checking flight prices and calculating when you'd see each other again! 

9. "Major Missing Happening" is no longer just a phrase for you. 

10. But despite everything, you know every bit of the struggle is worth it when you see them!
