Yes, I believe distance relationships can work. Let me explain… first both must be in agreement and they both have to really want the relationship to work. Imagine this… having a partner that lives overseas. With the advancement of technology you can literally see your partner everyday if you choose. Skype, Facetime, Duo are just a few apps that will allow you to take our partner with you wherever you go. For example, you can spend time eating together at a restaurant, go on a romantic walk in the park or watch a TV program via Skype. If your partner is in the same country, you can arrange monthly rendezvous to spend time together face to face. Whatever you do, you both have to participate in doing creative things that will keep the relationship fresh at all times although you are miles apart.
I would say yes distance relationships work. Let me explain… there has to be a clear commitment upfront regarding the long distance relationship. Both parties have to be more than willing to participate because it requires effort. You both must be clear on the definition and expectations and what effort means. It will definitely be a heavy lift because you both are apart and do not have the ability touch each other physically. Technology has been a major game changer in long distance relationships. You can actually see your partner every day if you wish. But know this, in order for the relationship to strengthen over time, there must beperiods of face-to-face time together.
How would you finish the following I loved her, she loved me, she was perfect, unfortunately.
Before I can complete the sentence I need to ask some questions. What is your definition of perfect? How was she perfect? Was it her physical attributes; her intellect or her success? There shouldn’t be an “Unfortunately” in the same statement if she was perfect.
Let me explain…
There is a disconnect somewhere. If you have to use the word “Unfortunately” after stating “She was perfect,” then there lies what is called an oxymoron. Perfection meets every desire; there should be no ifs ands or buts about it. So how I would finish that statement is, “I loved her, she loved me, she was perfect, unfortunately there was a disconnect between us.”
