Can a Long Distance Relationship Work?

Touch and presence can be very important in a relationship, but, in spite of these being non-existent in a long distance relationship, can it really work? The main thing to consider is the willingness of both parties to make the relationship work. If both parties are willing to give it a shot, work on the relationship every day, then, it can succeed.

Couples who have been together for a long time, or know each other well enough and have built their trust with each other strongly enough, might find it easy to sustain a long distance relationship. As long as there is a plan in the future to eventually be with each other in one place, then there is hope that helps the relationship endure the fact of being apart.

Taking the time to talk to each other on the phone or through the Internet and finding out what is going on with the other person and sharing emotions, even nonsense conversations, just as if the person is just right beside you, will surely help.

Making sure that you see each other as much as you can and taking turns in doing so, if financially and geographically possible, will also make the relationship hot enough to hold onto. The thought of seeing your loved-one again in the next couple of weeks will surely ignite excitement and add spice to the relationship.

It could sometimes even be better than having your partner around you so much because routine can lead to boredom, and we all know what boredom can do.

It could be harder if it is an online relationship and you haven’t met the person face-to-face. If the relationship is already serious and you have plans to take the relationship to the next level, I suggest you take time to meet the person face-to-face and spend time with him/her as much as you can, and take it from there.

It’s hard to be away from someone you love, let alone be away from someone you haven’t built your trust with yet. It takes a lot of work and a lot of thinking to make a long distance relationship happen, and more work and more planning on top of that if you don’t really know that person well enough to trust him/her yet.

Long distance relationships can work – if you’re willing to put in the effort. You’d have to take the time and make the effort to make it work, though, and it could lead to tough times and many, many sleepless nights. But as they say, love conquers all. If you decide to love that person, whether he/she is a million miles away, it’s just takes a phone call or an e-mail.

A simple note that says “I love you and I can’t wait to be with you again” or a phone call to say “I miss you” can erase those long winding roads, or even the depths of the oceans that keep you apart. And ending your day with his/her voice in your ear or a conversation through a video call can surely make your relationship last… until the day you are together at last.
