Joel's opinion on LDRs

Well, Marie is right. If you are in or planning on having a long distance relationship, then yes, PREPARE TO SUFFER!!! But do not forget that ALL couples suffer, LDR or not!

However, like Marie said, if the partners are open with each other, then it will be easier for the couple to enjoy a smooth relationship. This doesn't mean their won't be hard times, but the communication will help you minimize and get over these hard times with your partner.
When something in our LDR hurts me, or makes me upset or angry, I let Marie know, and I let her know what she needs to do to help us avoid those problems.

Know, Marie tells me about those things too. And, guys, sometimes when the person you love tells you things like that, it HURTS! But, you have to understand that you need to listen, because she is trying to tell you that something is hurting her or making her upset.

The important thing is that when you fight, keep in mind that it is not the end of your relationship. Don't you think that if a girl gets mad at you, and you try to patch things up and make the relationship work better that maybe it shows the girl how much you care and how much work you are willing to put into the relationship to make it work?

I think the amount of fights me and Marie have had, and all the times we have worked things out, really shows each of us how much the other is willing to do to keep the relationship happy and reliable.

A relationship like ours is really something you have to work for.
And if you really find someone as special as Marie, then it's worth it. ^^
(It should be noted that we were not looking for relationships online at the time, we were just friends online, and then over time we began liking and missing each other. Then we realized that we loved each other. ^^)

So, you, readers, maybe someday find yourself admist a LDR. I guess it is up to you to decide if it is worth it or not, it depends on the person and who they truly turn out to be. But, if you realize you really do love the person, then you should try your best to communicate about how the relationship is going and what you need to do to keep it going.

Have fun!
