Most people want into a relationship because they are lonely and desire companionship in a partner. Long Distant Relationship are like being married to someone in prison for life. You don't have them, you don't have companionship and you restrict yourself from possibilities near you. Go with the guy/girl next door. The other person you "never see" isn't there for you, physically, emotionally or in any fashion.
(I really didn't need to tell you that, did I?)
Long distance rarely withstands the test of time. Even if you want to be loyal to each other equally, there is always the other person who just found out you exist in their life and they want to be with you "more than anything in the whole wide world". So now you have your feelings of loneliness, your mates feelings and this other person who now desires being with you, to deal with. Free yourself and the other person you say you care about from the long distant "Restriction"ship, they are probably having the same internal battle you are, but don't want to be the one to say so.
Long Distance Relationships add up to; two lonely and self restricted people, NOT a relationship.
Keep in mind, the new people you each meet are going to try their best to hook up with each of you. When the loneliness takes it's toll on you, you will sense what I'm talking about. So will your Lonely Long Distance "Restriction ship" partner.
If you are like most YOUNG COUPLES, you’ll think you are different,
AFTER you get HURT, you will know… YOU ARE NOT.
