Long Distance Relationship
Distance cannot, and will not hurt a bond between two people that is based on mutual respect, trust, commitment, and love. It’s not a surprise that there is an increase in the people who are in long distance relationships. But do they really work? Or does this really depend upon how much you love the person, enough to think of them even when they are not there? I believe that the ideas of mistrust can easily seep into the minds of those involved in a long distance relationship and even to the people that surrounds them because you don’t get to physically see your mate. They may be saying that they are not seeing anyone else, but how do you know that for sure hundreds or even thousands of miles away? This mistrust can ultimately lead to the relationship ending. You should approach the trust issue in a long distance relationship on the same way as you would in a normal relationship. If there is no an indication or evidence of cheating, it is most likely not happening. It can sometimes be difficult for two people who are involved in a long distance relationship to connect easily when they are not together. Yes, you probably know everything about each other and talk everyday, but that is not a substitute for real contact. Both of you will need some time to adjust to being in each other’s presence. Be aware that it may take your partner longer than you and you should allow them that time.
For the past two years, I have been one of these many youth that struggling about long distance relationship. My life constantly consists of being paranoid and it’s not healthy. Sometimes I don’t go to school because I keep on thinking of her every time we will have a problem. But having a full trust doesn’t mean you won’t get worried once in awhile, that’s what keeps my relationship alive, but as long as your worries are always put at peace, then you have a good long distance relationship.
There is no point even attempting in a long distance relationship if you have no trust. If you do, it doesn’t mean it is going to be easy, but if you don’t, it is definitely going to be hard. It’s not easy to put all your trust into one person but when you do, it will be worth it. If your girlfriend/boyfriend is away, and will have other boys/girls around her/him the last thing you will want to be doing is checking up on her/him through facebook pictures or any social networking sites. Why I know that it’s because that’s what I am doing. Funny but it is true. It’s hard to give advice about love, or the absence of it, because it will be different for everyone. But the key things to remember are trust, communication and just living for that feeling you will get w hen you will be next be in his arms.1 note
