Maci Bookout has been dating a fellow motocrosser named Taylor McKinney for more than six months, but Taylor lives in Texas, and Maci lives in Tennessee, which means that the long distance lovers rarely get to see one another. In fact, they see each other SO rarely that Maci says she has nearly forgotten his face.
The reality star turned perpetual girlfriend tweeted this out to her fans:
i havent seen my boyfriend in so long that ive almost forgotten what he looks like. cool. #longdistancebullshit.
You know I feel her pain, I really do, but has she never heard of Skype? Plus, how about just being single?
It seems like ALL these girls, from Jenelle (who has both a boyfriend AND a husband) to Kailyn to Leah and more need to have a boyfriend at all times. But isn't it a boyfriend who started the difficulties in their lives?
It's not that anyone needs to be single forever. But there is something to be said for a break, for a period of time when these girls could just focus on themselves and their babies. It is a lot of work being a single mom and a student and trying to support their children all alone. Wouldn't it be a little easier to do so without the added boy drama?
They have the luxury of youth and plenty of time ahead of them, so why bother with boys whose faces they can't even remember. It just seems like more trouble than it is worth. Long distance is such a struggle anyway. Who needs the added drama?
Maci is a strong person, a good mom, and a smart woman. She does not need a boyfriend every five seconds.
Do you think Maci is wasting her time?
