Can You Fix a Long Distance Relationship Breakup?
Many people who get involved when long-distance relationships, at one point have problems dealing with the situation and distance. This can lead to the dreaded breakup. A breakup with a long distance relationship can face the same problems as a regular relationship. This article will address the question if you can really fix a long distance relationship break.
Depending on the two people involved a long distance relationship can succeed or fail. People aren’t perfect and neither our relationships. The most important thing in a long distance relationship is trust. Once trust is broken it is very difficult to try and patch things up. Their age and the distance between them can affect trust between two people. If you are mature enough, to handle the time apart then a long-distance relationship could possibly work. However I have seen firsthand that if being a part is more than 3-4 months then problems arise.
Here are some reasons why long-distance relationships end.
Let Freedom Ring
Number one is freedom. When the other person is no longer happy then breakups occur. Even though you may have talked about it, freedom to do what you want to do is extremely important to the happiness of that person. When it comes to freedom trust comes hand-in-hand, you must trust each other in your relationship. It’s important to have an open line of communication with your partner because that is the only way to know, really know, whether or not they are happy. Without this, you’re risking getting hurt.
Keep in “Touch”
Another reason why long distance relationships don’t work is a lack of physical contact. We as human beings need physical contact. Long periods of time without physical contact can drive someone crazy. I’ve seen this first hand and experienced it. It is not pretty. A rule of thumb I like to follow is 3-4 months maximum of time apart. Bit if any longer you might as well not continue your relationship. I know it sounds harsh but I’ve been in numerous relationships better long-distance and time and time again that time frame is the cutoff point.
Trust. When there is an issue of trust, or lack there under. It doesn’t matter how far away you are or how close. In fact you can be living with the person and if there is no trust your relationship will probably fail. I’ve had my fair share of white lies and a white lie can lead to a real-life lie so it’s best not to do. If you are experiencing trust issues then you need to be considered your relationship. If the trust issue is with you, that needs to be addressed. There are many reasons why people stray won’t lie but from experience any trust issues cannot be resolved easily.
Being honesty with yourself. This is related to the Trust factor we talked about but it also deals with being honest to yourself. The reality of having long distance relationship is that statistically it is not good. You just have to face the facts. If you can be honest to yourself and have a realistic approach to your relationship you can hurdle it and make it work. Not every relationship including a long-distance one will be easy but it can work if you take the time, effort and money to keep it growing.
Yes, You Can!
So can you fix a long-distance break up? Yes you can but if there are any underlying problems with anything above whether it’s physical contact or trust the odds are against you. Nothing in this world is impossible, you simply have to put effort into it and believe that it can work out.
