Why long distance relationships are great
#1 Every message is sacred
In a long distance relationship you normally don't speak to your partner face to face most of the time. Because of this every time they send you a text, email, card, etc... It is sacred to you because you normally don't speak to them as you want and you'll appreciate infinitely more!
#2 Calling is heaven
In a long distance relationship whenever you and your partner speak on the phone, simply hearing their voice can make you go crazy of happiness because calling each other can become quite a rare thing in a long distance relationship. Because of this it is pretty nice when you can hear your partner's voice and they can hear yours. You'll notice that they're happy when they hear you too! Take it from someone who is currently in a long distance relationship too!
#3 Distance means more trust
Since both of you are far away from each other, the only way the relationship will work is by having trust on each other, this means that either both of you have trust on the other or the relationship will go in a really bad way. But generally during long distance relationships there is no problem when it comes to trust instead of losing trust on each other the exact opposite might happen. This would be that both of you would have even more trust on the other.
#4 Video calling is something both of you love
Calling alone is something both of you will love quite a bit. BUT! VIDEO CALLING, that's a whole new level! every single person loves to look at their partners face to face even if they can't be physically with each other right away at least you can speak with each other and see their faces. This really brings quite a lot of happiness to the relationship since they can't see each other everyday like most relationships can.
#5 Both of you are indepentent
In this kind of relationships there isn't really a way to be dependent from your partner since they are barely with you at all. Because of this each one of you have to become independent but there is nothing wrong with being independent. Some of the best relationships come when both partners are independent from each other. It really depends on how both partners are.
#6 There is always "Me time"
When you're in a long distance relationship you're not forced to go with your partner all the time and since you spend most of the time alone, you can just chill and relax, even when you're texting him/her you could be doing other things. Even just going out alone to the park or even playing video games there would be no problem since both of you are still living your separate lives.
#7 Looks aren't all
In long distance relationships there is normally no need of lying since you're not dating a person by their looks alone, you see how they really are through their texts. Since you're not really with them then looks aren't that important for a while but if people are only interested in your looks trying to use you as a "trophy" then you might notice that in the way that they treat you. This is rather useful if you're still not sure if the person you're dating is worth the effort or they aren't. What you might find funny is that someone might not be a supermodel but the way they treat you and talk to you might end up making you see your partner as the most beautiful person in the world.
#8 No small talk
When you barely speak on the phone or do video calling there is no small talk, both of you want to catch up on important stuff for example: The situation you're going through, the things you had been doing, what are your plans for the next summer, Christmas, etc... There is barely or no small talk at all in a long distance relationship because every minute of communication with the other is really important So there is no time to have an awkward small talk!
#9 There is more intimacy
While most people think that being besides your partner is the best way to be intimate it really isn't, depending on how you look at it. Actual research have shown that having a long distance relationship makes partners share more meaningful thoughts than people that see each other every single day. Because of them not being together, they don't interact with each other as many times every day as other relationships but when they do in fact interact with each other they do it in a loving way and this kind of interactions lead to intimacy and allows you to know your partner even more. If you don't believe it then you can check it out.

#10 It takes effort
When it comes to long distance relationships it takes a whole lot of effort just to keep the relationship afloat, since both of you are far away from each other it can take a while for both of you to understand what to do in order to be happy and the most random questions can come like:
"What is he/she doing?"
"Is he/she still interested"
etc... But any problems in a long distance relationship can also be solved rather quickly since it's only both of you speaking and this way your understanding of each other can be even better.
#11 The first time
The first time you see each other face to face is like you're going to a whole new universe. Calling each other or the phone or video calling is nothing compared to being with your partner for the first time. Being with each other might make you so shy that both of you might just might not be able to talk at all for a few minutes. This actually has happened in long distance relationships and once both of you meet it feels like a prize. At the end when all of that hard work both of you did to be able to see each other it makes both of you feel grateful to be with each other.
#12 Golden relationship
If long distance relationships stay afloat and they work with both partners put effort into them then at the end when both partners are together. When both partners are ready to settle down, if they plan on it. Then they will probably have a really happy life because of the trust, independence and intimacy that has been already built during the whole time of their long distance relationship, if both of you made it work throughout all of those hard times that come with long distance relationships then even when you fight it will be easy to solve them since fights are really common in long distance relationships.
