One thing I have come to believe is that whatsoever has an advantage would most probably have a disadvantage. I am not a fan of long distance relationship but I am of the view that it does have its own perk.
Just like how we all have our different opinions about things likewise those who choose to be in this relationship. Although, most of it happens by chance maybe during the course of the relationship, one person gets a job in another state and need to relocate. But his/her partner cannot due to what they have going already....would they be able to cope? While some can or learn to, others may find it difficult to adjust to the new way.
However, there are goods things attributed to long distance relationship but mostly short distance relationship tend to work better....just my opinion though.
Leave a comment on what you think about it and we'd see.
