Being away from your significant other sucks. It sucks even more if you happen to be 20, 200, or even 2,000 miles apart. Anyone who has ever been in a long distance relationship knows what it’s like to miss someone all the time. It’s easy to look around and envy other couples holding hands, going out on dates, and generally doing everything that you and your SO can’t.
On top of that, there will always be that constant feeling of trying not to smother your SO, or ignore them either. Should I call them today? I just Facetimed with them… so should I wait a couple of days before we try again? Am I a bad person for wondering if this is going to work? Trust me, you are not alone!
I like to think there’s such a thing as immediate and long term happiness. If that person really is the key to your long term happiness, you don’t just give up on the chemistry you have together. This is a post for those of you who are wondering what it’s like to be in a LDR, who are currently in an LDR, or are wondering if you are ready to commit the time and energy it takes to be in a long distance relationship.
