Keep your connection strong
Keeping a love story alive at a distance always requires a few more difficulties. Two people who love each other and are many miles apart need to have special strength. Bear in mind that a special understanding is required to maintain a strong bond when in a distant love.
And so far… pretty obvious. However, this strength must be trained, a determination must be modeled on it.
Each encounter involved separation, and so it would be as long as life was mortal. In every meeting, there was a little bit of the pain of separation, but in every separation, there was also a little bit of joy of the meeting.
Long-distance love and the pitfalls of long-distance relationships
How many times thinking about the people who have chosen to love each other despite being far away, have we thought they were tricked into believing they could last? This thought also insinuates itself in those who live their love at a distance.
It is not easy to have to account for the constant uncertainty in the future, and often a long-distance love suffers from various forms of “fatigue”. The presence of external factors can also be seen as an obstacle.
Whether it’s three weeks or three months, here are some reasons why every couple should experience long-distance love at least once during their relationship.
What is a relationship if it is not built on trust?
If you’re not physically together, it’s easy to wonder what your partner is doing in their spare time.
“Is he playing the fool with all the girls?” “Will she have gone to dinner with someone without telling me?”
These thoughts certainly circulate in the head but it is one’s insecurities that speak. Any good relationship is built on trust. Furthermore, some studies show that confidence increases with habit. Having a long-distance love relationship is the best way not only to test trust but to strengthen it.
If you can’t trust her/him when she is far away, how can you think you can trust her when she is next to you?
Long-distance love allows you to better appreciate your partner
If you love each other, being apart is truly torture. You miss pampering and physically touching yourself, but it is enough to feel or see each other even for a moment to increase appreciation for the beloved.
Long-distance lovers appreciate the little things more to be happy and positively enhance the vision of the future.
Seeing yourself only through a screen or a phone will make the moment of closeness even more fulfilling, as well as effectively reinforce the sense of gratitude towards life. Do you already know the studies that show that gratitude increases happiness? Gratitude can also be trained with various exercises.
Long-distance love fosters true conversation
When an entire relationship is forced into Skype sessions, video calls, written messages, it means that it is mostly made up of words.
I don’t mean that you don’t talk when you are physically together, but when the only thing a couple can do is just talk, they are surprised at how much time you can spend talking to each other.
From “how was your day?” in more intimate conversations, distance allows us to understand that there is much more than a relationship made up of physical aspects.
Knowing that you are with someone you can talk and laugh with for hours is all the more reason to believe in the relationship.
Long-distance love to verify the strength of the relationship
If you have been with your partner for a couple of weeks, months, or even years and you happen to have to live the relationship over a long distance, you will soon discover how much this can be a valid test. You will be able to evaluate how much the couple cares and if it’s about love.
Not everyone can live a story from a distance or have a distant love. This means that some perspectives in “close couples” are missing or not created and this can work in favor of long-distance lovers.
Hard times don’t last, hard people and hard couples do.
Not all couples have a long distance relationship. They are probably missing something. Loving each other from afar means having the ability to work on what you have with determination, without losing heart and believing in it.
When physically together, it’s easy to take some things for granted. But put a few hundred or a thousand miles between you two… now the going gets tough.
Relationships require effort on both sides. If it is possible to overcome the obstacle of long-distance, it means that the couple is a cohesive team. And if you love each other, remember that:
love overcomes every obstacle and every distance if it is true love

Something good may come out of it
Going through a long-distance phase in a relationship is not easy, but changing your point of view can be dealt with better. Many couples have noticed that long-distance connection has helped their relationship breathe.
They’ve admitted that they looked at long distance relationships as an opportunity: for themselves, to test themselves, grow, mature and learn something.
Out of long-distance living, they taught what makes them feel good and what makes us feel bad; and as an opportunity for the couple, to understand if it is true love if it overcomes all hostility.
