Sometimes life throws an Australian exchange student across the hall of your flat. As you can imagine, I broke both of my rules within the first few months of uni. And now having been in a long-distance relationship for a year and a half with my boyfriend, not only did I break my rules, I shattered them into tiny pieces.
The first negative is in the name, the distance.
Which brings me to the second negative — time. We spend a lot of time apart, a lot of time waiting and counting down the days. So, you must be asking yourself, how is this relationship possible or even worth it? My advice is to make time for each other. We also plan times to skype call and save certain stories, so we chat for hours at a time. A huge benefit to a long-distance relationship is the long phone calls. But no relationship is perfect.
Long-distance can be emotionally draining at times. The goodbyes are horrible and the waiting to see each other can feel like forever. An important aspect to long-distance relationships is knowing when the distance will come to a permanent end.
Being in a never-ending long-distance relationship is nearly impossible. Knowing my boyfriend will move to the UK by the end of is what keeps us both going, and gives us something to look forward to. For a lot of students, it might be waiting until graduation and moving back home to be with your partner.
Whatever it is, there must be an end-date which makes the distance all worthwhile. And until then, the long phone calls and the excitement when you do visit each other will get you through.
