It takes one to be really in love to be able to withstand a long-distance relationship. You need to be honest with how you feel whenever you communicate with your partner. There is no sense in keeping the relationship if you no longer feel connected with your partner. It is hard to be in this type of relationship. So, if you feel like giving up, just say so. Be honest to each other. But if you really love your partner enough to stick with him though the distance be wide, be ready to make some sacrifices. Understand that he/she will not always be with you when you need a shoulder to cry on or when you feel like giving him/her a hug. Don''t give in to temptations because surely there will be many. Set some rules and get them straight. Be sure to plan on seeing each other as often as you can. And when you''re together, make the most out of it. Enjoy your time together. Make very special moments that make good memories once you are away from each other again. The good thing about having long-distance relationships nowadays is that we now have the internet and the cellphone where it is never impossible to show some love whenever you feel like it. You must be able to plan the future together. If you don''t see him/her in your future, then give up already because it may not be worth your sacrifices.
