Take it from someone whose relationship consists mainly of Skype calls, texting and instant messaging: long distance relationships suck.
All the fancy technology is supposed to be great for keeping in touch, but it certainly has its limits. It can be difficult to appreciate the romance as I gaze lovingly at a pixelated image that is supposed to be my boyfriend, and cuddling with my cell phone as I fall asleep each night leaves something to be desired.
Long-distance relationships have a long list of challenges, the least of which is technical difficulties. The whole point of having a relationship with someone is that you want to be together.
Long-distance relationship is time and effort
Being a student makes it even more difficult; we have class during the week, homework on weekends and not very much money to spend on traveling. Eventually we work it out, and he comes to visit me. No pressure. The time apart is the hardest.
Internet that is too slow and cell phones with bad reception seem trivial, but it can be the most frustrating thing when you rely on them to keep up your relationship. Depressing much?
You know the worst part? Your friends hear you complain about how hard it is, so they tell you to break up.
Lovesick over long distance relationships
Easy for them to say. It seems like a waste to give up now. Not to mention that you probably care a lot about your ificant other, despite how frustrating it is being apart.
A bit melodramatic, but that seems to characterize the young and in love. And if a partner made of pixels and cuddling with a cell phone is what you want, well, long distance relationships may just work for you. I agree.
