the (often long & torturous) process of breaking up a relationship.
my husband and i are slowly distancing from each other.
i kept the house and he has a separate apartment. the kids sleep over at his apartment every other weekend, and he takes them to school that Monday. we still go to parent-teacher meetings together, sometimes he picks them up from school if i am busy at work. he is paying the mortgage - i pay the utilities. we haven't started dating other people yet, but we have talked about how to handle it with the kids. we stopped sleeping together. the kids are adjusting OK - the dog seems the most confused.

"I wish I could date that blogger."
"Don't you guys live over 3,000 miles away?"
"Distance is such a cock-block."

A big, huge, ugly thing that keeps friends, Bestfriends, lovers and others away from each other. distance usually causes random phrases like "i miss you!" or "my day is always worse with out you like today! =("

Guy; distance sucks =(

An excuse that one person in a relationship uses to dump another, often cover for other problems in the relationship that said person will not admit.
"It's not that I don't love you, I just can't handle the distance."

I'm so tired of distance.

Distance always finds a way to make everything more difficult.

the difficult, but important, period of time after a breakup were the two involved do not have contact in an attempt to regain a sense of themselves.
