Long distance relationships are like no relationships.

There’s an age-old saying that love knows no boundaries. But let’s be real: long-distance relationships are a whole different ball game. Sure, the internet and messaging apps might make it seem like you’re keeping the flame alive, but let’s not confuse digital chats with the real deal.

A genuine relationship is one you can reach out and touch – literally. Being physically present for each other, sharing experiences, and making memories together, that’s what it’s all about. Unfortunately, no amount of FaceTime can replace the warmth of a hug or the comfort of holding hands.

Sure, long-distance love might work for a while. But sooner or later, that lack of physical presence starts to take its toll. The longing, the frustration, the missed opportunities – it all adds up. That’s why I firmly believe that long-distance relationships should come with an expiration date.

Think about it: if you’re serious about making it work, one of you has got to make the move. Whether it’s packing up and relocating to your partner’s city or finding a new place together, that’s the only way to turn those virtual promises into a real-life love story.

So, before you dive headfirst into a long-distance relationship, ask yourself: are you ready to trade those late-night video calls for the real thing? Because when it comes to matters of the heart, nothing beats having your partner right by your side.
