One of the worst things that have ever happened to me is having a long distance relationship when I didn’t know how to handle it. I joined campus three years ago at a time when I was dating a very beautiful young lady from my home area. I had met and fallen in love with her in the summer immediately after my high school education and we had promised to be with each other for life.
Unfortunately for us we were selected to join different colleges and as you would expect that wasn’t a very nice thing for our young relationship. We tried keeping in touch through phone calls and visiting each other once in a while but at the end of the day it was mutually decided that things weren’t working out and we had to sadly part ways. It was then that I decided that long distance relationships weren’t things for me, as much as it is something that had been hyped and spoken of by people in glowing terms.
Having said that it has however not escaped my sharp mind that long distance relationships actually work in some instances, but the fact of the matter is that they have to be handled with care and that will never change. There must be concerted effort on the part of both parties if it so happens that the relationship has to work. There are really no two ways about it, and that may never change. Total focus and commitment and focus to the relationship must be applied by both lovers if it has to work.
