You learn to love each other irrespective of the distance and make the relationship even more beautiful. But, apart from the good part, here are 10 struggles of a long distance relationship.

Seeing each other off at the airports is the toughest. It doesn’t matter whether he is going back for the 10th time, you are still as unhappy as the first time. Somehow you never learn to say goodbye in a calm and mature manner.

3. You are tired of people asking you ‘how do you make it work?’

Your friends come up to you and question you on how you can manage not seeing him for so many weeks/ months? Do you really trust him that much? Don’t you miss him? The struggle to answer these questions with a smile is real! How do you explain the secrets to them, right?
