Hey :) I've just joined so thought i'd introduce myself. My name is Angel, I'm 23 and I live in Brisbane Australia. I'm currently in a LDR.

My partner and I became involved just over 3 months ago online. He was the friend of a friend of a friend. I knew of him, had seen him around once, but never actually met him. We started talking and quickly fell for each other. We met in person for the first tim on the 1st September. He lives in Newcastle which is a 10 hour drive or a 1.5 hour plane flight, so we only see each other for one long weekend a month. Things have been moving pretty fast, and he as planning on moving up here at the end of the year.

Lately tho, we've been having problems. He's moody all the time, angsty, and short tempered. He has alot of insecurity issues and lately they've been running his life. It's destroying him, me, and our relationship. Neither of us have done the LDR thing before, so we're kind of struggling. I don't know how to get past this, we almost broke up last nite over it...

Sorry I rambling, still a bit of a mess today I guess..

Anyone have any advice on how I can help him? Or how I can get us through this? I know in person it would be soo much easier... but as a LDR, it's so hard...

communication is the most important thing, you've got to be able to tell him how you feel and vice versa, and he must be able to control his anger and outbursts. make sure you fix this BEFORE he moves in with you, because that is a MAJOR step and if a relationship is already headed for the rocks, it can end up being a drastic mistake. Tell him how his moodiness makes you feel and discuss ways that you can help him with it and ways he can help you deal. If you can't come to solutions, i'd be careful about the move...
