Sometimes when dating you find that circumstances change and that it doesn’t always change in a way that we would like. Many women who are seperated from their boyfriends, whether because of the military or other such circumstance, worry that they will grow apart. So the question is whether or not it is a good idea.
First thing to remember is that everyone is different and because of different personalties some people will take things a certain way. There are some long distance couples who find this to be the best of both worlds. You can live your life without constant attention to the needs of a partner. Yet, you have a person with whom you connect periodically to get a regular dose of romance and fun. But sometimes after awhile they find the mood ebbing away.
Many couples in long distance relationships find it so much fun and, in a way, so low-impact on their day-to-day lives, that after a while they become convinced that this relationship is obviously “the one.” And sometimes it is. But it’s hard to judge that from a distance.
Perhaps no long distance relationship advice is more important than to be careful. Do not overestimate a long distance relationship’s potential to translate into a regular relationship where you live in the same town, same home, and are headed towards long-term commitment.
The long distance relationship is an easy place to be on best behavior. Anyone can be accommodating, flexible, and attentive for a long weekend. This says little, in most cases, about how accommodating, flexible and attentive each party will be if you see each other every day, much less live in the same home. Once you do live in the same city you’ll find that sometimes it can be hard to accomadate each other every day.
Take it all in stride and see for yourself if it is something that you both can handle. You really never know if it is something for you until you try.
