You can be madly in love with someone, but one of the most trying ways to test your relationship is to do long distance. We've all been there at one point, maybe it was back in uni, when your boyfriend stayed back home and you moved away for college. Or maybe it's more recent and your partner had to take a job in a different part of the country. It could even be that your S.O. had to move across town so you guys don't live close by anymore. Either way, we all know that feeling of feeling too far away from our bae.
No one really expects long distance to be as hard as it actually turns out to be. I, for one, am sadly an expert when it comes to being in a long term relationship and being in a long term long distance relationship. I always knew that people complained about LDRs but I had no idea how unbearable the entire situation would be until I was in one.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying that your relationship isn't worth it or that you should just give up. If you have the right mindset, you can definitely make an LDR work. There are a million and one ways to show that person that you love them even when your miles away. But for the sake of this article, we can all laugh/cry at our mutual pain in this undesirable situation.
This article is just a shout out to all the S.O.'s out there who know the tiny struggles that make long distance relationships unbearable.
