There are times that the perfect person for you lives right next door, and there are other times when you have to look far and wide to find that special someone. There are also times you meet someone close by and then for work, family, military, or other reasons, they have to move far away. And if you want to be with that special someone far away or carry on the relationship even though they’re away for a while, you have to start a long distance relationship.
It may come as no shock that long distance relationships (LDRs) are wildly different than traditional in-town, close-proximity relationships. You have to worry about things like synching schedules, dealing with loneliness, and yes, sometimes jealousy.
