7 Long-Distance Relationship Worries

1. I miss them, do they miss me?
It's a given that in any close relationship where you are apart, you are bound to miss them; but the question is do they miss you just as much? If they say they do, then you should trust that they do. Unless you know something is wrong, you shouldn't think otherwise - stay positive!

2. What if someone better comes along and they prefer them to me?
Again, trust is a key factor here. You should trust that the other person will not stray and after all, they are still with you, aren't they?

3. When will we next see each other?
To solve this issue, you should make plans to meet each other before you have time to worry about it!

4. Is this working?
That is for you both to figure out. If one of you is unhappy about something, you should discuss it and solve the dilemma together. This will in essence bring you closer together once the problem is fixed, as it shows you both want to work together to make the relationship work.

5. Are they coping well with the distance?
Talk to them about the distance in your relationship and how they feel about it. Listen, show you care about them and that this matter is important to you.

6. Am I coping well with the distance?
Take time out to figure out your feelings too. If you are unhappy, it may be helpful to talk to your partner or a close friend or family member about this. Talking about the situation will relieve you and take a weight off your shoulders if you have been mulling it over for a while.

7. I don't want to lose them.
If you don't want to lose them, then don't let them go. Make sure you keep in touch and that you are both happy. After all, it takes two to Tango.


  1. I can't begin to imagine how long distance relationships work, but I can understand each of the points you've listed above. Thanks for linking up to the #binkylinky

  2. I can relate to all of those points! Me and my missus got together when we were at uni (her 1st year, me 3rd), but I was on my placement in London whilst she was at in Birmingham. We had my final year together (her second) in Birmingham, but then I graduated and moved to London and she went on placement to Bath. She had her final year in Birmingham whilst I stayed in London. Finally, she graduated and moved in with me. Been together nearly 9 years in total, have a house together, a sausage dog puppy and our first baby is due later this month. So, long distance can be difficult and stressful, but if you can survive being apart and being together, you've gone through pretty much every test imaginable! :) #binkylinky

  3. Long distance relationship is not easy. Lots of patience and trust is needed. Nice post. #binkylinky

  4. You've made some really crucial points and offered a solution which is great for anyone in this situation. I think with any kind of relationship, communication is key! #binkylinky

  5. i cant even imagine a relationship these days let alone a long distance one, i have been single with my toddler his whole 2 year old life! #binkylinky

  6. I can't imagine having a long distance relationship. My brother and his girlfriend have been together nearly 8 years, and 7 of them have been long distant - her family moved to Suffolk (we live in Birmingham) and two mobths ago she was given a job in Australia for 6 months. They both feel too young to commit and my brother can't afford to move out. They've managed so far with the 250 mile trip every other weekend but how her being the other side of the world for six months will affect them I don't know #binkylinky
