Why Long-Distance Relationships Are Worth It

Every mile and hour is worth a hug and a kiss.

Why Long-Distance Relationships Are Worth It
Alvin Mahmudov

Long-distance relationships have their ups and downs. Distance is such a silly thing to come between two people who love each other. Many people will say it isn't worth the hassle or it's just too much.

I'm here to tell you why they are wrong.

To clarify, long-distance relationships are not an hour away from your significant other to me. It's over half a day's drive, states upon states between each other, and sometimes, even countries.

Distance is really nothing if you love each other. We live in the age of technology. It is pretty easy to keep in contact with each other via phone calls and video calls. You learn the value of a five minute phone call. This also helps ease the pain of not being able to give each other a hug and kiss on a bad day. It sucks most of the time, there is absolutely no doubt about it.

One of the best parts of being apart from each other is finally being reunited. Once a weekend a month is such little time to spend with someone you haven't seen in months. However, it is such a euphoric feeling. Finally being able to touch your significant other is so surreal after seeing them behind a screen for weeks. It really makes you appreciative of the time you spend together.

If you have a problem with dividing time between your friends and your significant other, it might even be beneficial to have distance between each other. If you wanna go out with friends, there's almost never a conflict between that and your date night. Also your friends will know when your honey is in town and are normally understanding of wanting to spend all your time with your significant other. It helps you maintain friendships which are just as important, if not more, than a relationship.

Distance is only temporary. We date to marry right? So isn't it worth a month or two of waiting to see your potential spouse? Love knows no time nor distance. If you truly care about someone, distance is never a problem. It is worth every mile between each other, every hour spent on the road for a weekend trip. It is worth every heartache of not being able to be held after an exhausting day at work or school, because you know one day "goodbye" will be "goodnight".

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.
