The Ins and Out of Long Distance Relationships

by Deliah G.

Back when you were in high school, you met someone who changed your life for the better. You got into a relationship and life was perfect for three years. Now that you’re all graduated, you’re off to one college while you’re other half is going to a different college, possibly in a different state. You’re still in love with him or her so you do not want to have to break up but you’re not sure how you are going to maintain this relationship. The truth of the matter is that many people stay in long distance relationships because their relationship was built on trust. If you are wondering how you too can do this, here is the 4-1-1.

Long distance relationships, as previously mentioned, will need to have a great deal of trust involved, as would any other relationship. This means that you should always know that the person you are dating has your best interests in mind. You should be able to feel confident and know that your other half would never cheat on you even if the opportunity presented itself. You would know that they were committed to you and only you. A long distance relationship can be maintained given the right amount of communication. Sure, you may be a thousand miles away from the person you love and you may not physically get to see them each and every day like you once did, but there are many ways that you can stay in touch. You can call each other and talk for hours. You can txt each other to see how the day is going. There are also other ways, such as Facetime. If you both have iPhones, you will be able to video chat and see each other which can be a great thing. If you’re not an iPhone owner, you can Skype with each other so that you can still ‘see’ each other in one way or another. Even though you will be miles apart, you will see your relationship strengthening and you will appreciate and enjoy the times you do get to spend together so much more. You know what they always say about distance making the heart grow fonder? Even if you always thought it was silly, you will see how much truth lies in those words when you’re in a long distance relationship.

Being in a long distance relationship is hard, but with the right amount of trust and dedication to each other, it can be done. All you need to do is think about the good in your relationship and be sure to communicate with each other. Know that the person you are with is with you because you are the one they love. Don’t let worry get the best of you because it will destroy what you’ve worked so hard to build. If you love someone, no amount of distance will ever be able to change that and your relationship will withstand the distance.
