Can we survive long distance?
Sure, you can! But it takes commitment, trust and communication. Can you and your partner commit exclusively to one another despite the distance between you? Someone local may come along and the ease and convenience which he offers may make it tempting to think, Well, my boyfriend is so far away...how would he ever find out? Do you trust him to commit to you? If not, try to determine the issues that are fueling your doubts. If you find no real reason not to trust him, make up your mind to trust him and trust him! Communicate with each other. Emails and phone calls are lifelines in this situation and will serve as the means to tell him you love him, to fill him in on your day, to ask his advice, lean on his shoulder, ask him about his day, etc. If an issue arises between you, talk it out. Don't let unspoken thoughts and feelings come between you. By communicating, you're keeping your relationship fresh and open.
1. The knowledge that if you survive the distance, your relationship can survive anything. 2. You don't have to be presentable all the time. 3. Long distance relationships are a lesson in effective communication. 4. For it to work, both parties must be equally committed. 5. You get really good at planning. 6. The relationship is more than physical. 7. It is full of exotic travel and adventure.
Honestly in my opinion long distance relationships rarely ever work. 1 person always ends up getting lonely and finds someone else to comfort them. The only thing that i can say is either to move to where your partner is or to call it quits. In my opinion, it can work. I've been in one for almost 2 years now To survive it you got to have trust - and lots of it!! and you…
