Many people claim that they cannot be involved in a long-distance relationship, but they have no idea that life sometimes has other plans for them. There are some who are terrified of long-distance relationships because they believe it may not last, but the fact is that some relationships do endure the distance. According to a study conducted in 2018, 60% of long-distance relationships survive because the partners have reached an understanding. All that is needed of both parties is that they put in the effort to make the relationship work.
Distance is not for the fearful, it’s for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.– Meghan Daum
Being in a long-distance relationship, like being in a close relationship, comes with its own set of problems. Dee King said, “love will travel as far as you let it because it has no limits” and with love, distance should not be a problem. Due to the lack of physical contact, it can be difficult at first, but regardless of that, it will eventually work out for the better. All that is required is love, communication, and trust.
Long-distance relationships have their own set of benefits, as partners are more likely to surprise one another with series of emotions and affection. And, thanks to the ever-evolving world of technology, being in a long-distance relationship has never been easier. Virtual calls can be made, and movie dates/nights can still be had using apps like RAVE and Netflix party. Aside from that, technology has allowed us to maintain intimate relationships with one another.
Allow the distance to lead you as you take advantage of the opportunities it presents. Keep in mind that every thought matters.
