How Do You Know If a Relationship Is Worth the Effort of Long Distance?


Some long-distance relationships start off as long-distance relationships, while others might become one due to various circumstances. Perhaps you've met someone you like online or maybe your partner is moving away for work or study. When deciding whether to carry on a long-distance relationship, one of the biggest questions is whether it's worth it. A long-distance relationship takes a lot of work, so how do you know it's a good choice or if there's a chance of your relationship surviving? Whether you're considering starting a long-distance relationship or you're already in one, these signs might help you work out if you're making the right choice.

You Have Strong Feelings

The first thing you have to consider is how you feel about each other. If it's a new relationship, you might not be at the love stage just yet, but you should still see a potential for your feelings to develop. Sometimes it is important to be cautious. If you're someone who gets attached quickly or even experiences love addiction, you may need to carefully assess your feelings to make sure they're trustworthy and have a chance of lasting and evolving. Are your feelings for each other enough to drive the other important things in a healthy relationship?

You See a Future Together

Being able to picture and even plan your future together is necessary for a long-term relationship. You don't have to be clear about everything right away, but you should be moving toward a goal where you come (back) together. One thing to keep in mind is that this might involve a certain level of compromise. Where will you choose to live? How do you balance needs and desires such as finding work or being close to family and friends? When you can plan your future together, and even set a timeline, it's a good sign.

You're Open with Communication


Good communication is vital when you're in a long-distance relationship. You need to feel connected to each other, even if you might be thousands of miles apart. You should be willing to communicate about the big things and the little things, and neither of you should feel left in the dark. Both of you should be prepared to put in the effort to keep communication open, finding ways to stay in touch when you're not together.

You Can Balance Alone Time and Be There for Each Other

You naturally get a lot of time to yourself when you're in a long-distance relationship. Even if you check in with each other every day, you're both still off doing your own things. This is actually healthy for your relationship, especially if you continue to have time on your own when you finally come together. If you can balance having your own time as individuals and being there for each other, it will help you to continue a strong relationship.

It can be tough to know if a long-distance relationship is worth it, and it's natural to have doubts. But if you know the signs, you can make a smart decision.
