Publisher's Summary

"Everything would be fine if we lived in the same town/state/country" is the common reason many men and women give for a long-distance relationship not working out. Yes, distance can put an enormous strain on a relationship, but claiming that "distance" is the only reason a relationship didn't work out, or cannot work, is putting your hands over your ears and shouting "Land", because the truth is, it's too much to handle. I've met many men and women who won't try long-distance relationships because, according to them, "Long-distance relationships just don't work." That simply isn't true!

Long-distance relationships can and do work if the two individuals involved want it to. In my opinion, the question is not, "Do long distance relationships work?" But rather "Do both of you want to make it work?" If you both want to make it work, distance is just another obstacle that two people who truly love each other can easily overcome if they really want to. These simple-to-follow tips will help your long distance relationship not only survive distance, they'll also help you lay a strong foundation for a relationship that is fun, fulfilling, and successful last? The Internet has changed the way we live and the way we love. It has changed the way we socialize, and it has also increased the likelihood of finding love over the Internet. Conversations are easy to strike up with regularity, and it's easy to discover that you have strong feelings for someone who lives hundreds or thousands of miles away from you! Many people are choosing to have long distance relationships. Long-distance relationships might feel wonderful at first. However, they come with their own set of unique challenges as well.

A good balance of helpful info

I appreciate that this book provides statistical data along with the author's personal experiences and speculations. It has lists of ideas and tips from fun activities to do with your long distance love, to ways of addressing potential problems in the relationship. Clearly and simply narrated, it is overall worth the listen, and I highly recommend this book to anyone who is willing to invest their time, money, and heart into their long distance relationship.

Eye opening

I often thought we were doing everything right and couldn’t understand why we would argue, why we kept hurting each other, when it was obvious how much we love each other, that we made each other happy and have a future together

Hearing this though I see many of the behaviours I and we were guilty of and truly believe this is going to be a new chapter in our relationship as friends and lovers in an ldr

Honesty and Trust

As fast-paced as relationships are today, the slow courting process is the only option in a long distance relationship. There is much old-fashioned advice that people in real life relationships could really use from this book. This is my opinion (and not the author’s), I would like to add that a long distance relationship is not really a full relationship, so when you finally see the person in real life, I would encourage everyone to take advantage of that double stack of the distance/ in real life relationship and be courted a second time! There is not much in the way of advice when the couple has children. This changes much of the advice in my opinion. If the author would care to write a second book to hone into this area, I think that many readers would be buying that volume as well. Anyhow, great job!
