Host Thoughts on Long Distance Relationships
My long distance relationship wasn’t a terrible one. Although I don’t see myself entering into another long distance relationship in the future, I did a lot about myself and it helped me grow as a person. I don’t think all relationships like this have to end in a terrible fashion. I do believe though, that both people need to be clear about their intentions and work hard at it every day (just like any other relationship).
The amount of rum I drank notwithstanding, I had a pretty awful experience with my long-distance relationship. I wouldn’t act out like I did back then because I’ve grown as a person and learned how to abandon any hope of control, but when you think you have truly found someone you love and they treat you like that, it’s a low point in your life. I don’t think long distance dating should be attempted. You’re better off just having a fling when you see the person, and having your own separate lives when you live apart. It’s the better way to live.
