Of The The Bittersweet Flavours Of Long Distance Relationships…

Posted: January 27, 2018

Long distance relationships can create havoc in lives of those who go through them, but they can also give you bittersweet memories that you might cherish forever.

“It’s such good weather here. I miss you.” “I wish I could celebrate this moment with you.” These are the lines are somewhere connecting us when we may be in long distance relationships. From missing each other to having big fights, doubting each other to loving endlessly, all are the moments you preserve in long distance relationships. Maybe the two people are staying apart, yet the distance creates a handful of sweet and sour memories, that at some point of time your kids are going to hear as exciting stories.

What to expect in long distance relationships

Lack of Time

It mostly happens when the couple is not able to give time to each other, largely because of the conflicting schedules. It generally takes place when both the people are living in different countries. The time variations and the work schedule makes it difficult for the couple to connect. This seems to be a major reason for getting detached. “You never have time for me!” is the common complaint in long distance relationships.

Lack of Trust

You know that there’s nothing wrong with the other side, but the geographical distance between you compels you to be suspicious. Often it ends up breaking trust, or being on the verge of losing trust, people end up saying harsh, bitter words, but do not realise this until it is too late. So never trust the distance, but trust your partner, and believe in your love for each other.

The ‘missing’ part

There are times you feel like the one special to you should pamper you. You need the romantic cuddling. There are also moments when you feel low, lonely, and you need a hand to hold, a shoulder to rest upon. The worst part of long distance relationships is when you miss your partner so badly that you so long to be with him/her. But then there can be the bundle of cherished memories that you open up seeing one by one, cheering you up.

Meeting after a long time

A month or a year’s gap feels like a decade or a century. The excitement of meeting after a long time can be expressed well by the persons in long distance relationships. The butterflies in the stomach are felt on the previous night of meeting. There are sleepless nights spent in the pain of not getting to meet for a long time. Often stress and frustration catches up with you, so that you may not be able to do things you want to do, and may end up doing things that you shouldn’t be doing. But that meeting after a long gap is really worth remembering.

Although the ‘distance’ is the only devil responsible for all the mishaps and also the reason of sadness, yet it also teaches us several lessons, makes us aware of different experiences, and enables us to be strong. The distance creates the ‘missing moments’ full of tears and makes the ‘meeting moments’ extremely special, making this relationship precious. You often end up fighting on small issues, not being in touch for several days, being overprotective as well as insecure, but the powerful element called ‘love’ heals up everything. It’s the mighty factor that turns every fight into smiles and every misunderstanding into promises. This is a relationship where you have different tastes mixed up together being served in a single dish. So always go on with: “Make love, spread love and get love.”
