He’s Never Too Far Away: The Fundamentals Of Making Any Long Distance Relationship Work

January 8, 2013 ‐ By Julia Austin




Ideally, the man of your dreams lives about a fifteen minute drive away. He’s not your next door neighbor, so you actually get some space to yourself and he can’t just pop up on you. Plus, if things don’t work out, you’ll at least have separate Starbucks to hit up in the morning. But love has no regard for what’s “ideal.” And sometimes you’ll fall for a man who lives across the country. Your friends will tell you to forget about him, that it won’t work out, and that the travel will exhaust you, but it’s too late. You’ve fallen for him and you want to make it work. But the question is,  is it possible? Actually it is, just stick to these fundamental rules.

    My fiance and I have been long-distance throughout our entire relationship. Actually, we went from long distance to …even longer distance. I would never recommend long distance. It sucks to no end. I love him to death but absolutely hate the arrangement. Just feels like a glorified friendship most of the time. You have the titles with almost none of the perks.
