Pro-Con: Long distance relationships

Audri Chenoweth and Sydney Bowler

   Saying goodbye always seems to be a challenge.

Couples get into a relationship for the reason that they love one another. Why end it over something as meaningless and workable as distance?

Seeing yourself without them is just not going to happen. Knowing you will be together again and that the distance is not forever will help get one through it.

One will always have something to look forward to, whether it is seeing them again or a phone call. Your communication will definitely improve along the way. Every interaction with each other will be more meaningful.

Technology from modern days has made long distance relationships easier. According to www.usatoday.com, 25-50 percent of college students in the United States are in a long distance relationship currently.

People in long distance relationships should feel better about going into them. Whether they are a state away or halfway around the world, staying together has a much higher possibility of the relationship working out.

With the distance, the relationship will become stronger. The couple will learn patience and sacrifice.

If you can survive the distance, big or small, the relationship can survive anything.

Change is a natural thing. Everyone knows this and it is something that cannot be stopped.

When two people are in a relationship, they grow and change together.

In a long distance relationship, the couple will grow apart and change individually no matter how hard they try to prevent said change. When brought back together, they could easily be meeting a completely new person and not the one they fell in love with.

This can happen for many reasons, one of them being people growing apart.

A relationship where you can never physically see the person you love will not work out. Busy schedules make it hard to find time to talk, and eventually if said time can not be easily found, someone will stop trying to find it, and a relationship cannot be one-sided.

Problems in long distance relationships are much harder to solve. It can be nearly impossible to sit down and talk things out because of everything that gets in the way.

Arguments over text never end well. It is difficult to sense the correct emotion and it is very easy to misinterpret what is trying to be said.

The only way to be sure the right message is getting across is to be in person.

Chances are there will be nothing left to the couple except for texts and short meaningless phone calls.
