Why are long-distance relationships failing?: Long-distance relationships don't work out sometimes because we are not ready to give it what it takes. According to long-distance relationship statistics, 40% of long-distance relationships don't work out. 1. Lack of trust It is advised that you don't go on a long-distance relationship if you don't trust your partner. The absence of trust has ended several long-distance relationships. In fact, the foundation of long-distance relationships is trust. If this is absent, a long-distance relationship cannot be built. 2. Cheating and Infidelity According to statistics, 24% of long-distance relationships don't work due to cheating. The distance barrier makes it easier for couples to cheat. This is why I mentioned earlier that trust is very important in making a long-distance relationship work. People cheat for different reasons though nothing justifies cheating. However, if you are absent from your partner for too long, the temptation might set in. Cheating is usually caused by a lack of intimacy; you can use frequent dirty talks to spice up your long-distance relationship. 3. Lack of effective communication Like they say, "out of sight is out of mind". If there is a glitch in the communication between you and your partner, it could end the long-distance relationship. Lack of effective communication is one of the primary reasons long-distance relationships don't work. Since both of you are far away from each other, the only thing bringing you closer is the effective communication between you. If this (effective communication) leaves the picture, then nothing draws you together. Let's take, for example, a situation where a party loses his phone and is unable to communicate with the other party for some weeks. We can all agree that such a long-distance relationship will end soon. Communication is very vital to long-distance relationships. What are your views about long distance relationships? Does it worth it? Can you embark on one? What's your experience with long distance relationship? Let's hear them below
