Long distance relationships are hard and not everybody understands that. There are more reasons to fight, more reasons to argue, and more reasons to be stressed. You have to put in twice as much effort, twice as much patience, and twice as much trust in order to make it work.
The distance, however, gives those couples a reason to love harder than regular couples do. Regular couples get to see each other whenever they want, while long distance couples have to wait long periods of time to see each other and when they do, it’s only for a short period of time.
When it’s time to leave, that’s the worst part about it because you don’t want to leave knowing it’ll be for a while until you see that person again. So every moment those couples spend together really matters. They don’t take holding hands, long hugs and kisses for granted.
What’s amazing is that although these couples are far from each other most of the time, there’s no one they feel closer to than that person and that’s how you know it’s real and pure love.
