Let’s admit it. Long distance relationships are far from easy. It is a
sacrifice. You have to be able to transcend the loneliness caused by the
distance and the paranioa caused by knowing he's so far away. And you
should bear with the things that compose long distance relationships.
Once you have decided to get into it, and decided to never let go of each
other despite the distance between you and your partner, then
congratulate yourself as it takes a great amount of maturity to be able
to face this “struggle”.

Long distance relationships are full of twists and turns. You have to be
patient in waiting for the time when you and your partner will meet
again. You will spend most of your time missing him or her, wondering
what he or she’s been doing right that very moment. Spend memorable
events in your lives without him or her beside you, thinking and worrying
about the never ending “what ifs”. As I have said, Long distance
relationships are never easy. But mind you, if both of you gets through
the blocks, then it is all worth it. Once the moment came when you will
see each other again, the pains are just distant memory. But once again,
the pain of saying bye-bye time is still there.

In most cases where lovers stick to long distance relationships, the
sweetness of each moments being shared are amazing. Some of the people I
knew that have been to long distance relationships are now blissfully
living together. One of them got married just a few weeks from now. The
girl spent her college days in Michigan, and her fiancée is working in
New Jersey. So they only have the chance to be in each other’s arms
during occasions like Christmas, Thanksgiving, Spring breaks, and summer.
Yet, look at them now. They are now married, working together in the same
city and now planning to have a baby.

There are important factors in maintaining healthy long distance
relationships:
First and foremost, both partners involved in long distance relationships
should have mutual feelings to each other. That’s the very basic. Because
long distance relationships won’t work if the two of you are not greatly
inlove, you will just be fooling yourselves.

And of course, love comes together with commitment. Both of you should be
committed with each other, that you will be bonded by the love you have
disregarding the distance between you and your partner and whatever the
struggles may come.

Trust and faith also comes together as the third factor and also the most
important. Distance between each other may cause you to worry so much. It
brought unhealthy and depressing thoughts about your partner. But once
you have trust and faith, long distance relationships will never be
wasted.

Lastly, both of you should be mature enough to handle long distance
relationships. Long distance relationships won’t work with people who are
childish. It will just drive your partner crazy.

Albeit long distance relationships are as good as dreams, people who have
gone through it have their own interesting stories to share. And most of
them have succeeded the hardships of being involved in long distance
relationships. It only proves that if they can do it, why can’t you? You
will discover that long distance relationships are even more advantageous
and exciting than the usual relationship where you get to see your
partner any time you want. Remember the saying, absence makes the heart
go fonder? It is true indeed for people who get involved in long distance
relationships. Just bear in mind the factors that both of you should
possess, and everything will be all right.
