Benefits of a long-distance relationship
The old adage “Absence makes the heart grow fonder” might have some truth to it although anyone through a long-distance relationship might sigh at this one!We all know the bad parts of this kind of relationship but before you believe all of them, here are the good parts of a long-distance love that might change your mind!
1. You don’t have to look your best all the time
You can go months without shaving/waxing/cutting your hair/going wardrobe shopping. You can wear those pyjamas which you should have thrown years ago, those ratty socks with a dozen holes. You can skip makeup altogether!
2. Long distance relationships teaches effective communication
Some of the best conversations you will have is when you live in different cities! You will be surprised with how long you can talk about hardly anything at all. When in a close vicinity, people often set aside their dreams, fears, insecuties in the midst of daily drama, work and the hurry of city life.
A scientific study conducted by Cornell University revealed that while couples in an ordinary relationship had daily interactions than couples in a long distance relationship, people in the latter had longer and more meaningful conversations.
3. It shows commitment
You cannot have pursue a long-distance relationship unless both the parties are seriously and deeply committed to each other. Although it gets lonely, you know that he/she might be the one if he/she is willing to try things with you even when you are far.You’re your partner starts to get distant, it should become obvious that his/heris not in your relationship.
4. You can experience the life-changing love that you thought only existed in reel life
Being in a long distance relationship needs a lot of work and surprisingly you will feel the most loved when you are in one. The longing, the anticipation of a call, the moments when you can feel each other’s presence while only being virtually connected can make anyone a romantic.
5.You are forced to be independent
There are always some men and women who get too involved in their relationship. They become another version of their partnerand lose themselves and their personality. Living apart from your partner is a great way to ensure you don’t change your real self in the course of your relationship.
6. The relationship is more than physical
Long distance relationships are the most parental approved relationship in the world as they are anything buy physical! But as painful as celibacy can get at least you don’t have to worry that your partner is only with you for sex. Your personality and charm gets to shine!
7. Your Trust will grow
When in the same city you might wonder-who did he/she go outwith? Who is the person who posted on his/her wall? But when in a long-distance one you just do not have any choice in a long distance relationship. Even if you want to monitor your partner, you can’t! And that feeling of helplessness is a boon in disguise!
8. Both parties get plenty of “me” time
As said before because you aren’t around each other and the time difference you get independent and have plenty of time for friends, family, social life etc. Because you will be organized about your time on Skype, whatsapp, snapchat and the rest of your day, youcan plan your metime accordingly.
Long distance relationships are not for the weak. They are full of meaningless fights, jealousy, sleeping alone, and doubting yourselfand the relationship!But being in a long distance relationship is very worth it when you are with the right person.
