25 Quotes That Capture What It Feels Like To Be In A Long Distance Relationship

Long distance relationships aren't for everybody. It takes a special type of person to endure all the loneliness and waiting around that happens in an LDR. 

I applaud those who choose to do long distance because it's not an easy journey. It certainly tests your love and proves that if you can make it through the distance, you can make it through anything as a couple.

I was in a long distance relationship and in the moment, it didn't seem too bad. Once the relationship ended, I realized how much of a toll the distance took on our relationship. It sucks to think that if it weren't for us living in two different states, we'd still be together.

When we were with each other it felt incredible, but when we were apart, we were living our own separate lives and didn't feel connected at all. It's tough finding the balance between being apart and still making time to act like a couple, but some couple manage to do just that and come out on top.

A long distance relationship is a roller coaster ride. It can leave you feeling lonely and emotionally distant from your partner some days, while other days you'll surprisingly feel closer to them despite the miles that separate you. 

Being apart allows couples to focus on getting to know each other without being distracted by the physical aspect. When you finally see each other and get to be physical, it makes it that much more special. Long distance couples learn the true meaning of patience and they never take anything for granted.

There's a lot of sacrifice and waiting around in an LDR, but when the moment comes to finally end the distance, it will be so worth it. You overcame a huge obstacle together and you'll feel like you can do anything.
