As someone who has studied a lot about human psychology and relationships, I find it really surprising that a lot of people are under the impression that long distance relationships do not work at all.
While a long distance relationship is certainly more complicated than a local relationship, it is by no means an impossible thing to do. From what I have seen so far, I can tell you with some authority that people who love each other and stay committed to each other can easily make it work – it doesn’t matter if they are away from each other.
There are three very important questions that you need to ask yourself to know where your relationship is headed to.
1. Do you love each other unconditionally?
2. Do you trust each other completely?
3. Do you understand each other thoroughly?
If you and your partner can confidently say ‘yes’ to all these three questions, you do not have to worry about anything. Your relationship will be a success.
Have you ever wondered why a lot of people think long distance relationships are a bad idea? It is simple. The idea of a long distance relationship is something that most people are not familiar with. So, they assume that it will not work out – the operative term in that sentence is ‘assume’. They do not know for sure. In order to remove this misconception, people should be familiarized with the concept of long distance romance.
I recently came to know about an ebook which discusses the idea of a long distance relationship in detail. Normally, my opinion of ebook authors is not so good. But the author of this ebook – Stephen Blake – is a little different.
He has written an ebook which encompasses everything a person should know about how to make a long distance relationship work. In fact, if I had written a book on long distance relationship advice, it would have been more or less similar to Stephen’s ebook. I don’t think I can put it any other way.
I would recommend this book – Loving Your Long Distance Relationship – to not just people who are involved in long distance relationships, but also to everyone who is going through a relationship crisis. This book explains everything – how to combat out of sight temptations, how to strengthen your relationship despite living apart, how to emotionally connect with each other, how to prevent arguments, and much, much more. It also has some very good stories of people who have been there, done that.
The USP of this book is that it is very practical. It has a lot of long distance relationship advice, but it does not sound preachy at all. It is written in a simple, lucid language. The stories of people who successfully made their relationship work are inspiring to say the least – you will be easily able to relate to them.
In short – if you are someone looking for some good advice on long distance romance, this is the book you should read. If you are someone who thinks long distance relationships do not work at all, this book could change your perception completely. Either way, it is a very good read.
