Fighting in a relationship is never fun, but fighting in a long distance relationship can feel like torture. You just want to be with your partner so badly—to touch him, look at him, and reassure him that this fight won’t be the one that ends the relationship. When the fight is over, you want to be able to be affectionate with each other. Just being long distance when you’re getting along is tough enough. Add a fight to the distance, and everything feels worse. The distance feels further and the fight feels bigger. For some reason, when you fight with your long distance boo, it’s something that just tugs at you all day, every day, until the fight is over. When you fight with your partner who lives in town, it’s somehow simpler to put it out of your mind while you’re at work, and set it aside until you see each other. But seeing each other is a long ways away in long distance relationships, so you don’t get that comfort. Here is why fighting in long distance relationships it the worst.
You can’t see facial expressions
You cannot see your partner’s facial expressions, so you really can’t tell when he’s being sarcastic, when he’s holding back tears, when he’s being genuine, or when he’s just saying what you want to hear. There’s a lot lost in translation.
