    Communication Communication
    I struggled a lot in opening up especially if am offended or something wrong done to me. Am a type who just snap out of matters quick and not deal with them head on.
    Am also in a long distance relationship and the guy am dating has taught metk be more vocal. He actually insisted that if you really want this relationship to work out, you need to be communicative. AMD more than happier to say it has helped to be comfortable and know that my opinions matters too. Communication helped us and we are two years in a relationship now.

    The idea of long distance relationship was wild to me but now I think it’s about meeting your person and as you said having “those conversations”. It needs work and a lot of compromising but what relationship doesn’t.

    Can we take a moment for this sentence😂😂”mix a hot person with someone with extremely cold feet and expect sourdough?”😂✨😆😂🙌🏽🙌🏽

      Gosh yeah it’s hard! But it isn’t impossible… and for someone like me who really hates confrontation, having so many phone chats definitely made us eliminate all boundary walls!
      Dropping you an email now btw 😉

    Despite its reputation at not working, I do believe that long distance relationship can work. It is harder because you don’t physically see the person everyday. But with love and commitment and honesty and communication, it is possible. It is just so much harder.

Long distance relationship is harder because you can not physically see the person every day day in day out but abs with endless love it will work!! Long distance relationships are hard but it’s great to hear you both figured it all our and now you have beautiful spawn together💕💕💕 I love reading your blog posts, keep up the great work you’re an amazing blogger xxx

      Thanks Maya, I appreciate the love. Long distance surely isn’t for everyone, but the greatest part about living in the 21st century is that you can communicate easily and flying isn’t a problem😉

    I’m an “uh-huh” person too. I’m awkward and don’t know what to say most of the time, so I resort to generalized reactions. This doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate talking, though!

    Long distance relationship is very difficult. A short period of time in my early life I was in long distance relationship, I do not want it again.

    The success of long distance relationships definitely depends on the 2 people. Like you said, it’s also important where you are in your relationship. I’ve been with my boyfriend over 6 years now and luckily never long distance, but I’d think we’d be more successful at it now than we might have been earlier on in meeting. Communication would definitely be key!

    • Shelly DS says

      Oh wow 6 years is such a long time! You guys have been together longer than any relationship I’ve ever had! lol
      I hope you never have to do long-distance, but like you said, if you communicate, it will work.

    You hit the nail on the head with communication! That’s key in any relationship and I imagine extremely key in a long d one, only bc that’s all you have to go on.. Good for you guys for making it work and it sounds like it took consistent effort too which is key to any lasting marriage I think!

    I think trust is also a huge component. Everyone has a past and sometimes it takes a huge leap of faith to get where you need to be! ❤️🙏

      Thanks for reading and sharing your thoughts 💖
      Gosh trust is such a deal-breaker in so many cases! I can’t imagine staying with someone I don’t trust, let alone long distance.

    Congratulations on making it work! I was in a 2 years LDR until we tied the knot in 2014 and still going strong now.
    My take is for a LDR to work, you need maturity and sensibility. Lots of doubts can create havoc in your mind if you aren’t strong enough to shut them down. If both of you can see the end goal, nothing else will sway you from loving and trusting each other.


I'd love to read your thoughts on this!
