You need some LDR love. Here’s why.
It’s awful missing someone and wishing they were there, by your side, but they’re not. I’ve been in my fair share of long-distance relationships or LDRs. They consist of Skype dates and awkward time differences. You never stop wishing your person could be there for you when times are tough.
You allow yourself to be okay with phone calls and text messages when what you really want is to hold your partner in your arms and never let them go. But you don’t get that privilege in a long-distance relationship. Instead, you get fleeting moments and plans broken with “maybe” and “another time.”
You plan to take trips to visit, and, for a brief moment, you’re reminded of what it’s like to be in a relationship when your partner can be there for you at the drop of a hat.
LDRs can only work if there is trust, communication and love between the two partners. Even though there are many difficulties to having a long-distance relationship, I believe everyone should experience them at least once in their lifetime.
Long-distance relationships ensure each partner knows each other’s value. You don’t get to spend a whole lot of time with them, so, when you do, it’s not spent arguing or fighting trivially. Time spent with your partner means listening and understanding to what they need. You truly learn to value people when you can’t see them everyday.
Here are 25 quotes that explain why long-distance relationships are actually worth your while.
