Things That Rock About Long Distance Relationships (#1)

Honeymoon weekends together….when absolutely nothing matters but you and the person you’re with.

One thing I really love about our long distance relationship is that when we have our weekends together like this, we get to intensely focus on one another. It makes me feel very fortunate…because many couples with children don’t get that…and in some ways it makes their relationships more difficult.

I do so love our ‘honeymoon weekends’ together. They’re what make those stretches apart absolutely worth it.

  5. The reason this works so well is that you have time together alone where you can concentrate on each other and nothing else. This should be no different to any ‘normal’ relationship, where you have to do exactly the same to nourish the relationship. It just isn’t quite as easy to make the time. Make an effort, make the time to be together alone so that you can forget everytyhing else, and any relationship will flourish.

    • I completely agree with you.

      However, I think that many couples don’t nourish their relationships. When you’re with someone every single day, it’s sometimes easy to take them for granted, and get caught up in the day-to-day humdrum of everyday life. When you’re in a long distance relationship and only see each other every few weeks, it’s easier to set “real life” aside and just put the focus on your partner and your relationship.

      I’m not arguing that LDRs are better; this is just something that I particularly appreciate about mine.
