Stories about long distance Relationships

what you have to understand is that Stories about long-distance relationships only make sense when you have a real plan (even if it’s a plan to do that in years) of actually moving to the same city. Uncertainty is the worst tbh.

both long & short distance requires efforts in everything & for strong-minded..it can work if you’re ready to put lots of effort!.

It depends on what your love languages are I think. If it’s physical though that’s difficult… and quality time can also be a stretch but can be done online.

Maybe look into what your own and your partners love languages are and try and see if there are ways to keep using them online if you decide to do long distance.

I just got done with a 9-month relationship, what ended it was 2 months of a long-distance relationship.

you can be toxic to each other and enjoy it all day long as long as you can ease each other with a physical presence, otherwise, u re stuck on one reassuring the other that everything is gonna be fine till it’s not.

Unless the other loves you for yourself not the person you’re striving to be for him or her, and this thing being mutual, it sure will never gonna work out. That’s why there are so many toxic relationships, it’s only natural to want to be perfect and that’s the first mistake and the last one.

We will be celebrating 2 years together next month and we got engaged back in January! Communicate!.

15-
They definitely can if both people make the choice for it too.

It seems like this huge daunting thing but it’s fairly simple. Save up for visits, see each other when you can, decide if you love each other enough for one of you to move then assess who has more keeping them in their state/province/country then file for a visa.

Boom. Done. I actually prefer long-distance relationships because when you’re together you really appreciate the little things.

It always depends. Like how far are you willing to give, and how patient you can be. I’m in one at the moment, been for a year, and it’s really hard, like even before what happened in the world right now.


You can wait and all that. You have instant messages today, and video calls, but at some point, you need the company.

And people don’t live on dreams…
Eventually, everything feels just platonic, and you start to think if it is even real.
If you can with all that I believe it’s possible. But it is a hard man.

It really depends on the two people. I was so ready to do it since I knew, in the end, it would be worth it, and id like to say I tried my best by calling him often, reminding him that I love him, making plans for the future, but he didn’t do the same.

he kept getting more distant and colder every day to a point where I found out that he’d been calling another girl to his room, yup. So yeah, hasn’t worked for me.
