Long-distance relationships don't last.
They are based on 90% your own fantasy, since 90% of communication sharing and understanding happen ONLY when we are together in person, where we can pick up on those non-verbal subtle signals.
LDR's are 90% self-delusion, and so our subconscious ends up filling in the blanks with our own fear, and then we start to get upset and unhappy. And because we are NOT with them, we cannot communicate better than 10%, so the suspicions and fears cannot be resolved and instead slowly and painfully break us apart.
Tips. Focus on reality. Drop the LDR OR one of you moves to the other one's city.
"Dating" means spending time in each other's life, in person .. no you two are NOT dating. And no, you cannot "relate" across long-distance.
Stop deceiving yourself. Don't let your fear of being alone wipe out your sense of reality.
Anyway, we never end up happier WITH someone than we were before we met them.
And if this is online, then you have KNOWN ,... HIM .. for ZERO months.
