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:
