Hello people, this is my second article. Today i'll be writing on long distance relationships. Unfortunately, It didn't work for me...
Well I've been in one but things didn't go right. I've lost my online bestfriend..I lost him. And I wanted to share my personal experience and opinions on it with you.

First of all, i'm not really against long distance relationships(ldr in short) .
It's true that many individuals found their true love/besties online via social media such as Instagram, facebook and others and hopefully last forever.

1. Different timezones

This leads to sometimes getting too tired or lazy to talk well.
Couples in long distance relationships often speak about how the distance has actually helped them learn to communicate well, and at a very deep level. However, the opposite can also be true. Distance can also enable poor communication patterns to become established.
At the start, especially when one or both of you is busy, it can become easy not to invest in connecting deeply with your partner. Conversations can become fewer and farther in between in the long run. It can become habitual to mostly talk about how your day was, or keep the conversation fairly superficial and brief.

~ You can organize skype dates at least once a week and try to talk and discuss about their daily lives. If ever you find yourself busy, let them know beforehand.

2. When jealousy strikes

Feeling a little jealous now and again is not unusual in a relationship, especially when you are separated from your loved one. A little jealousy can even spark fresh attraction and a new appreciation for your partner.

However, uncontrolled jealousy can lead to a destructive combination of suspicion, possessiveness, insecurity, anger, and shame. If you’re feeling jealous, it’s a good idea to figure out how to control your jealousy before it starts to control you.

3. Tempted to cheat!

HAHAHA, if only it was like that..
Your partner is surely tempted to cheat a little bit. . However, it can become significantly harder to resist temptation if you are not physically with your partner often. It can be easy to get lost in the moment and think that your partner has no chance of finding out if you do cheat because they don’t reside on your same campus, but this mentality is super problematic. It’s normal to find other people cute while in a relationship, but when you begin to seriously consider taking things further than just the acknowledgement of their attractiveness, it’s a sign you either need to get out of your relationship or find a way to feel satisfied inside it.

After seeing your "bae" posting pics with another girl/guy you'll be more prone to stalk them on each of their social media. There's no end in sight. During this time you might be neglecting other important relationships.
You are spending all your spare time on your phone or computer.. If you focus all your free time and energy on your long distance love, your relationships with those close to you will suffer. In a nutshell: this is bad news.
You will be happier and healthier if you have a strong network of family and friends beyond your partner. To do that, you need to spend time connecting with them.

4. Growing apart.
It definitely hurts to see your relationship falling apart.
When your love moves far away and some aspects of your relationship pause or slow down, the rest of life continues. You don’t stop learning and growing and changing just because the person you love isn’t there every day. Neither do they. You are both accumulating experiences. Some of these experiences will change you.
When you’re in a long distance relationship it can be harder to identify ways in which your partner is changing, and track with them through that process.
The reverse is also true.
No matter how much you love each other, there is a real chance that a slow drift during your time apart will cause you to grow away from each other in ways that frequent flier miles cannot fix.
