Just a question for you. What is your opinion about long distance relationships?
Long Distance Love
Dear Long Distance Love,
My take on long distance relationships is no different than real relationships. If you want it to work, then you put effort and love into the relationship. You and your significant other, whether near or far, will nurture it and it will blossom.
Take my love story as an example, and that of many other single girls in the city. I’ve been in local relationships all my life, and they haven’t worked out. Why? Because we weren’t on the same page and the love wasn’t there.
So, I don’t believe long distance relationships are unrealistic or impossible. Sure, in theory there are many more challenges in a long distance relationship. You don’t get to see the person as often. He or she may meet someone else. But, doesn’t the same occur with couples who are close? How many relationships, near or far, end due to infidelity? How many women complain because they don’t spend enough time with their partner?
There are also many positive attributes to a long distance relationship. You can pace the relationship. You can really get to know the person via dialogue and and build a foundation. And, when the time comes, a conversation takes place regarding the future. Is the relationship worth a move? Do you move in together? How does you and your significant other make it work long term?
A long distance relationship almost forces the people involved to make serious decisions about their future. And there is nothing wrong with that.
Love strongly and wisely,
