Long Distance Relationships (LDR) Information

Long Distance Relationships (LDR) are defined as any relationship where distance is a significant factor. Whether you live a couple hours away or a couple continents away, the specific challenges that face a long distance relationship are unique and difficult. This community is a place where you can share your long distance challenges and triumphs, vent, brag about your long distance love, give long distance tips and ideas, or just get support from people like you who are going through the same thing.

Share your tips on how to make long distance relationships work. Many people, in their time apart from their loved one, seek a community to get advice and support to get through the difficult communication issues that arise and just for the company through the loneliness.

How to survive a long distance relationship is different for every couple, and at times it seems very lonely and even against common sense. However, many people are living proof that long distance relationships do last, and the added challenge just makes the reward of success all the more satisfying.

Many questions come up about how often to communicate in a long distance relationship, or whether or not the other person seems to be drifting or fading away. Both sides need to make the same level of effort to keep the relationship going, and sometimes that involves a level of sacrifice to prioritize the relationship over more immediate gratification.
