The Internet Highway has changed the way we live and the way we love. It has changed the way we socialize and it has also increased the likelihood of finding love over the internet. Conversations are easy to strike up with regularity and it's easy to discover that you have strong feelings for someone who lives hundreds or thousands of miles away from you! Many people are choosing to have long distance relationships (LDRs) LDRs might feel wonderful at first. However, they come with their own set of unique challenges as well. Many couples are blind-sided by the impact an LDR can have on their daily life. This person can now feel so close to you because of the internet and yet in reality, remain so far away. The paradox is weighty. The more prepared you are to handle the situation, the better equipped you both will be to make decisions along the way that will benefit you and your partner and possibly make it a safer and enjoyable experience. In this article, I have addressed 10 areas that you should pay special attention to when considering an LDR:

If you decide to venture forth, know that you will both need to be very positive and not just for yourself but for each other to make your relationship work and to keep the flames burning. If one seems to be doing more of the work than the other, it will erode the relationship. The Internet Highway has expanded the reach of our hearts. The advantage: We have an opportunity to meet people we might not otherwise meet. We also are forced to get to know them on a deeper emotional level then we would if we had met and continued the relationship in person, because they are not physically available. So LDRs have the potential to reach the depths that other relationships may not. You may find that you are more candid and vulnerable in an LDR in time than you ever have been with other relationships of close proximity. The Disadvantages. You just aren't able to be together all the time and that will create more stress the longer you are apart. The Answer: Faith, Focus and Love. The Question: Do you have enough? Will Time tell or will you tell Time? Your Choice. Your Destiny! Remember - never go to bed angry. Say "I love you" everyday and remember those words throughout the day. I wish you success and hope one day you get to close that distance.
