Long distance relationships, or LDRs, are one of the most difficult type of relationships. We all know how difficult it is to actually be away from our partners, and let's be honest that not all of us are cut out to have an LDR. I mean, it's statistically the toughest type of relationship to be in. But there are people who beat the odds and sail through this phase of their love as well.
Yes, it's not always sunny in the land of LDRs, but there are a few upsides too, and that's what we are here to discuss today.
Not being together means you don't spend on the fancy dates. Do you know how much can a trip to a good restaurant cost?
All your dates are free, thanks to Skype and Facetime. You get to see your honey boo even if you are at another corner of the world.
The best part is that you don't have to dress up to actually see your pumpkin, you can just be in bed and have a Facetime, and even enjoy each other's company. If you know what I mean.
Because you don't share the bed with anyone, you don't have to hold your farts in anymore. Let those stinky devils out!
You don't see your significant other everyday, and hence, you can actually eat whatever you want without being judged, or without the thought of having to impress them.
Your mail becomes much more special, and bills don't bother you as much as you receive your personal hand written sweetness from your boo.
You don't have to go on dates everyday or stay over at her place for the night. All that time you can save and perform so much better at your work. Who knows that extra time you spend with yourself will help you become a much better employee.
While you two are apart, you can always do things that you love to do, but your partner doesn't enjoy them much. Go to the art gallery, museum and dancing. The baseball game you always wanted to see, anything.
Okay, let's be honest, we all have a certain set of friends our partner wouldn't prefer to be around. Take this opportunity to catch up with them, and spend some time with them.
Now, you know that staying away takes a huge toll on your relationship, and majority of it is due to absence of physical intimacy. If you are the kind of couples that sext with each other, you know it's amazing to receive a sexy image from your partner and trust me, its better than any porn you'll ever need.
Though you don't meet enough, or not even as much as you'd actually want to, but every time you actually do see each other, it's just as special as the first time. Every kiss, every sensation is just as valuable, and you just can't let go!
