Do Long Distance Relationships Really Work? The Honest Verdict: Read it Here!
Looking For A Boyfriend
You and your partner are deeply in love and enjoying a blissfully contented relationship, when he or she suddenly drops the bombshell; they’re moving away. At once, this throws your relationship into an entirely new light, and raises a lot of questions; the most significant being: Will our relationship last?

It’s natural to find yourself wondering this, regardless of how strong your love is for one another. Here is an honest appraisal of the realities of long distance relationships… we’ll leave it for you to decide whether or not your relationship can survive it!

Long Distance Relationships: The Truth

The fiction: You’ll miss each other every day.
The fact: Eventually, you’ll stop missing one another so much and adapt. It seems unbelievable, but the fact is, you’ll naturally adjust to your partner not being around so much. This won’t make you love them any less, it’s just that the nature of the relationship will undergo a distinct shift.

The fiction: You’ll have great phone conversations every day. The fact: There will be times when you don’t want to talk. It’s the same with any relationship, regardless of how close you are. Accept that there will be days when you only send a text, and instead, focus on the days when you have fantastic conversations that last for hours.

The fiction: You’ll completely trust your partner. The fact: You’ll inevitably wonder if they’ve found someone else, if only on very rare occasions. It’s natural to be aware that they are meeting other people, and that some of those people might be good looking and a member of the opposite sex. However, even if you’re feeling jealous, try not to let it show, as this can really sour a relationship.

Our Verdict?

Obviously, whether your relationship will survive depends very much on you and your partner. However, if you’re aware of what’s involved and prepared for the reality of the situation, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy a really fulfilling long distance relationship.
