It’s the counting down the months, weeks, and days until you are finally (done) with the inconvenience of being in a long distance relationship that keeps it strong!
The only reason for being in a long distance relationship is the belief she or he might be “the one”. If you’re just "passing the time" with someone you might as well do that locally. One man's opinion!
