Ldr is about adapting to rough reality. Ppl who havent been in one cant ever know how hard it is. Being separated from ppl we love is constant pain. Ldr takes different kind of commitment and making efforts daily basis. And its still overwhelmingly heart breaking sometimes. The most important thing is that both parties have to be sure of the ingagement to the relationship and common future together. It takes true love and strong will, good communication and yes, imagination and creativity.

Ldr is challenging. Time differences, different sceduals, breaking internet connection, glitches in apps that are in use for communication, lots of misunderstandings when depending only on written messages and phone calls - missing body language, different moods and states of mind, lack of physical contact.. You name it. So, invevitably it hurts and damages feelings. It all needs to be aknowleged and payed attention. But every difficulty, long distance fight and misunderstanding beated together makes ldr couple stronger. Communication is everything in this situation and cherishing the mutual goal even its out of the sight and when everything depends on the big unknown.
I have been in ldr for over 2,5 years now. We got married a year ago and havent been able to be together for over a year already. And we dont know when will be the next time or when can we start our life together, this grey everyday life that everybody hates. We dont want anything more than that. This not knowing is damaging.
But. He is the only one I want to share my life with, so giving up isnt an option. How ever long it will take or what ever it will take, we will be together. All what we have stands on that certainty.
