Long Distance Relationship


I know its most cliched question but i dare to ask again , ” What is love”?  Dictionary says its variety of different feelings, states, and attitudes that ranges from interpersonal affection to pleasure. But can these simple words describe this vague feeling? I doubt so. 

If we search intenet , we can find billions of love posts, we can read thousands of love stories and there is a separate universe of romantic flims. Still question arises, can someone fully describe whats love. Does someone have to be together for love to grow or 2 person thousands of miles away can also share this feeling? The debate between these two questions  continues and  the views on ” Long Distance relationship” varies person to person.

Either you say love is just “hormones ” screwing your brain  or love is a devine feeling ; there is no  distance factor in love . Love grows on the foundation of trust, mutual understanding and selflessness. When these foundations are strong and love is pure, distance doesnt matter. 

The biggest example i can give is myself. My girlfriend lives  6000 km  away from me , skype is the venue for dates, lunches happen on viber and late night dinner on phone. Geographically, the distance seems huge but when i close my eyes , i feel her right next to me. The foundation of love is strong thus no matter what our relation is no different from any other relations. I believe , long distance relation is the biggest test of love. If you have understanding, trust and patience  endure the test, then you can feel that h/she is the special one.

Some may mock, long distance relation is just “digital love”; It cant be practical; it wont work.  If simple thing as distance comes between  the relation then my friend, the relation itself didnt work from the beginning.If love only worked when two persons are physically together, then breakups would be a rare word. Distance doesnt make love impratical or it cant be blamed that  it wont work; main thing is how you cope up the situation and move on.   I know being together, being able to held hands together, hugging each other and being together is a nice feeling  but waiting for someone and being finally able to run towards  each other, that tight hug and  that first kiss after so long is surreal. As Hellen Keller said, “The best and most  beautiful  thing in world  cannot be seen or touched. They must be felt with heart.  Distance means so little when someone means so much.”
