"Everything would be fine if we lived in the same town/state/country" is the common reason many men and women give for a long-distance relationship not working out. Yes, distance can put an enormous strain on a relationship, but claiming that "distance" is the only reason a relationship didn't work out, or cannot work, is putting your hands over your ears and shouting "Land", because the truth is, it's too much to handle. I've met many men and women who won't try long-distance relationships because, according to them, "Long-distance relationships just don't work." That simply isn't true!
Long-distance relationships can and do work if the two individuals involved want it to. In my opinion, the question is not, "Do long distance relationships work?" But rather "Do both of you want to make it work?" If you both want to make it work, distance is just another obstacle that two people who truly love each other can easily overcome if they really want to. These simple-to-follow tips will help your long distance relationship not only survive distance, they'll also help you lay a strong foundation for a relationship that is fun, fulfilling, and successful last? The Internet has changed the way we live and the way we love. It has changed the way we socialize, and it has also increased the likelihood of finding love over the Internet. Conversations are easy to strike up with regularity, and it's easy to discover that you have strong feelings for someone who lives hundreds or thousands of miles away from you! Many people are choosing to have long distance relationships. Long-distance relationships might feel wonderful at first. However, they come with their own set of unique challenges as well.
