Long Distance Relationships and do they work?
Often times long distance relationships fail because they lack the importance of local relationships. Things like spending time with one another and the comfort of knowing you have someone close by to come home too. Yes these are key factors but like most relationships they don't make up the entire relationship. Now being a relationships specialist I can say it depends on a number of things, for instance meeting. When you are involved in a long distance relationship being able to meet with your mate is key. Other factors include but are not limited to how well you know the person, and if can you trust them, you might feel like you can trust them or even tell yourself you can but in the back of your mind you still have that uneasy feeling. This is because you don't really trust them. This is why you have to know before getting involved in this sort of relationship that you can trust your mate. What type of relationship you are trying to build with this person? The age as well as the actual distance between you and this person can play a huge part in the life and strength of a long lasting relationship.
This among other things as well can also break the relationship. Once you have figured out all these things you have to analyze yourself and figure out if you are just looking for someone to talk to when no one else is there or if you are looking to fill that missing link in your life. Then you have to be on the same page with the person or people involved. Many factors fall into play with this like family and friends who can and usually do play a major part in the influential decisions made on either party's side of things. For instance If your friends and family are constantly telling you it's not going to work or filling your head with crazy things like saying how do you know if she or he is not there right now with someone else or if they are not married. When dealing or trying to deal with being in a long distance relationship you have to be sure this is what you really want and be willing to take all the risk involved. You also have to be willing to meet the other party halfway on most things. It can even go as deep as the reason for the distance. If the reason is not good enough who is to say they didn't leave for other reasons. There are so many things to consider when trying to maintain a long distance relationship so be completely and utterly careful. The slightest slip up and it could end in the blink of an eye.
