7 Reasons Why Long Distance Relationships Never Work out for New Couples ...


There are plenty of reasons why long distance relationships never work out for new couples.

Recently I have witnessed the struggle of many long distance couples and I have come to a realization that almost every single one of them ended in a break up.

As a new couple, you go through a period when you want to see each other every second and that is almost impossible when you are miles away.

This and many other reasons is why long distance relationships never work out, especially for new couples.

1. Jealousy

No matter what type of person you are, you are bound to experience some jealousy while your other half is miles away.

I think that at some point during a long distance relationship paranoia gets the best of you and you begin to imagine things that might not even be happening.2

Your jealousy just increases with time as you begin to hear stories and see pictures on social media.

This is just one of the reasons why long distance relationships never work out.

Lack of Trust


Talk about a pessimistic view point and disappointment of an article. The title is ridiculous and the list is worse. My fiance and I have been together over 2 years. We entered the relationship with the knowledge that we were looking at four years before one of us could move. We discussed what that meant up front. We never experienced half of what is on this list. We did get to a point where we became more accustomed to the distance, but that isn't a bad thing. Just because it makes the separations easier to manage doesn't mean you like them. We talk everyday at least once. We started with a LDR timeline of over four years and we are now just over 18 months until I can move. Your article is disappointing, one sided, narrow minded, and an insult to successful LDR couples who are making it work.
People make it work a lot. I met a guy that lived in Philly and I lived in Michigan. We were in an LDR for 2 years. Now we''re happily married.
My boyfriend and I were only dating for 3 months before I moved 6 hours away. It was hard but we made it work and here we are 4 years later. (:
