I've been in a few LDR's and...
I came to realise that they just don't work if they start off where you haven't met them, like over the internet.|
If you meet someone first, like at a party or whatever, and you develop a wonderful, loving relationship with them and then one of you has to go away for a while, then the LDR (long distance relationship) could work if you're both committed to each other.
But what use is 'commitment' when you haven't met a person yet? The internet allows for a lot of LDRs to occur between people who never meet, but who think that they have fallen in love with someone over the internet. It's not love though, because love only occurs when you know their whole body, mind and soul.
It's not the person you love, but the idea of being in love with someone. However, these types of LDRs have the greatest failure rate because it's too easy to find someone else who captures your mind and attention more than the one you're supposedly in a relationship with.
And what happens if you actually meet someone in the same city? They are REAL, instead of the 'fantasy' that exists over the internet.
My experiences showed me that the only true love comes from a relationship that exists between two people who can touch each other and look at each other, and whisper sweet words into each other's ears. Anything else is just a fantasy, a hope for a love that isn't real.
So now, if I 'meet someone' on the internet, I don't get too attached unless I meet them in real life, unless we can live in the same city and get to know each other.
Anything else is just an illusion.
