Is A Long Distance Relationship For
Because distance simply isn't an issue when it comes to online dating, people
seldom stop to think about whether or not they could actually manage a long
distance relationship. But, as an online relationship progresses, the
geographical distance between two people does indeed become a very big issue!
Long distance relationships take alot of work, if they are to survive!
The biggest problems with long distance relationships are mistrust, missing
each other so much it hurts, having the funds to travel to meet, and feelings
of lonliness. These issues must all be addressed if a long distance relationship
is going to work.
You've dated online for a long time, and now you want to meet this person
- and they live on the other side of the country, or possibly on the other
side of the world. Now what? First, determine whether or not the expense
that will be involved in meeting this person will be worth it or not. Have
they been honest? Have you? If one or neither of you have been honest, you
probably don't need to meet.
If they are worth meeting, determine who is better suited financially to
travel. Some people travel as part of their job, other's have full time jobs
where they live and have to wait for vacation time to travel. All of this
must be discussed, to determine who will do the traveling, or whether or
not both will do the traveling. You may also need passports and visas, and
all of this takes considerable time and effort to get!
Before you agree to meet, however, one or both of you need to determine whether
or not you will be willing to move in the event that the relationship progresses
even further. It stands to reason that while a long distance relationship
works for many, for a certain length of time, such a relationship will eventually
become unsatisfying for one or both. Ties to family, jobs, and communities
are not easy ties to break! Major changes, such as moving, need to be carefully
considered, and you both need to know, in advance, what circumstances would
prompt a move - just to date? To live together? To marry?
Long term long distance relationships work for many people. They are happy
with it. But you really need to think about this. Is the long distance
relationship stopping you or the other person from finding a more satisfying
relationship with someone that could offer a higher level of companionship?
If you aren't careful, you could waste alot of years on a long term long
distance relationship that never moves to a different level.
Will you be happy with a long distance relationship, and if so, for how long?
Some people like long distance relationships simply because when they do
see the person again, they get to experience the 'newness' of them all over
again. You really need to determine whether this is something that you and
the other person really want or not.
