The Surprising Benefits of Long Distance Relationships ...


Even though long-distance relationships are hard work, there are still a few benefits of long distance relationships that you should consider.

A study performed by the researchers at Queens University showed that young, unmarried people in long distance relationships don’t report lower relationship satisfaction then those in geographically close relationships and that “the further apart the couple was, the better they were doing with respect to satisfaction, intimacy and communication.” Sometimes it’s not the distance that kills the relationship, it’s the doubt that’s fueled by negativity.

Try to replace those thoughts with positive ones because when you feel good about your relationship, you will be one step closer to succeeding in it.

Here are 7 benefits of long distance relationships that you should consider:

1. You Get to Know Each Other Very Well

One of the most important benefits of long distance relationships is the fact you’ll get to know your partner really well.

Even though long-distance couples talk less frequently than those who live in the same city, their interactions are deeper, more meaningful and they develop communication skills and habits that will help their relationship in the long run.

I'd like to emphasize how when you're in an LDR, it truly is not the "distance that can ruin a relationship, it's the doubt fueled by negativity." I am at blame for this tbh. LDR are certainly not easy. However, what's most rewarding is striving to become a better individual and manifesting your own dreams while loving someone who respects and honors you.
I can relate !! My LDR is 5 months old (France to Morocco) and we deeply love each other. We cherish the moments that we get to spend with each other, and we try to build memories. Sometimes it's hard but love makes us keep it together :)
Great article. Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 months now. We are completely in love, it is hard because I just have moods where I just want him to hold me. But it is so worth it. I hope to see him soon. ( Toronto to California )
Nice article. I'm in LDR for more than 3 years now. He loves me a lot. And I love him a lot too. It's sometimes really hard. But it's worth. ( U.S.A. to Sri Lanka)
So accurate! Love this article
