The Ex Tapes: Long-Distance Relationships

If you’re tuned in right now then welcome to The Ex Tapes, a Journey Magazine original series about the relationship obstacles of dating in the 21st century. Sexy, informative, and real, these are the lessons of our exes.

In a long-distance relationship, the expression “love is patience” will eventually become the mantra for you and your boo.

The comfortability of what once was may keep a relationship standing initially, but after physical love hasn’t occurred in ample time, what will be the anchor after separation? Long-distance relationships will test both the foundation of a couple’s bond as well as its resilience. With endless temptation — especially without someone to check you — it is easy for one to succumb to the pressures of distance. If the long-distance relationship is going to last, you must be able to trust that person wholeheartedly. Ultimately, both people have to be ten toes down and be ready to give and receive those kisses through the phone.
