Once people enter into a relationship and become a couple, it’s common for them to start doing a lot of things together. As a former speed dating host, I got to talk with a lot of people about the dating process – their frustrations, their hopes and fears. There’s nothing I love more than bringing a fresh perspective to people, specifically how to have more fun with dating, especially skeptics.
Interesting hub! I think what’s important to remember though is that a lot of long-distance relationships don’t start out that way, they do start when you’re living in the same place or relatively close by, it’s just that life might drag you apart. In this case, I really have to disagree with the first two points you made. It’s not hard to trust someone you love, and if it is then you probably shouldn’t be with them in the first place. And if you truly love someone, then you won’t even think about cheating on them.
Anyone who’s spent a lot of time with a narcissist knows, deep down, that the person causes them pain – especially if it’s a love relationship. If you’re still in a relationship with your narcissist, you may be thinking there is some hope. Maybe you’ve given up years of your life trying to keep your sinking ship afloat.
Be a romantic boyfriend and understand this side to your shy girlfriend’s personality. Your dates don’t need to be fancy. Even a takeout which you can enjoy while cuddling on the sofa while watching a movie in your apartment will be way better than taking her to a flashy pub.
It’s time to get real, to get honest, and to get help. It’s time to stop waiting for the change, and begin making the change yourself. It’s time to step out of the grip of the past, and into something new. It’s time to acknowledge these dark places and bring them into the light of His healing.
im in a long distance relationship, really far away. i moved right after we started talking and when i came back for christmas we had an amazing time together. He said he wanted to be together so we started dating. there is no chance of us seeing each other weekly, its more like six months at a time.
