Long distance relationships can put a strain on even the most secure of us. They are, without a doubt, one of the biggest tests a relationship can be put under. Many people struggle to navigate a long distance relationship, especially if there is a time difference or an ocean separating you from your loved one.

 

Nights Alone

Expectation:

I now reside myself to a life of solitude and isolation.

Reality:

Thanks to the time difference it’s basically 3am there so you can go out and party at 11pm  

 

Technology Dependence

Expectation:

You’ll be flawless and stunning as you lifestream your face.

Reality:

Wifi won’t connect and your laptop keeps freezing for no reason. 

 

Timing

Expectation:

Everyday you’ll both stick to a regiment communication schedule, despite the horrendous time difference.

 

Reality:

Life always gets in the way – no matter what.
 

Insecurity

Expectation:

Oh that girl he is with is so pretty, I should ask him to ask her what makeup she uses.  

Reality:

Who is this she devil succubus that is within a three metre radius of my man.
 

Cold Bed

Expectation:

Oh no what will you do.

Reality:

Pshhh, you will have so much more room!
