The hardest part is the distance.

Chachi admits that being apart from the person you love and care about definitely puts a strain on your relationship. You might have technology to communicate, but not being able to get a hug from that person after a long day is one of the things that sucks.

Even though you have the option to visit each other, traveling can get super expensive.

Holiday vacations are great to have if you’re trying to make the time to visit each other, however, plane tickets, train tickets and gas are not cheap. So no matter how badly you want to see each other, sometimes money gets in the way of that.

After so much time apart, tension and insecurities start to build up.

Lets be real: it’s tough to feel completely secure when you don’t see each other every single day. Simple text reminders like ‘Hey I love you,’ ‘Hey I want you,’ and ‘Hey you’re my everything’ can make a huge difference, Chachi explains.

And there’s also the fear of missing out.

Being apart can cause FOMO (fear of missing out), as Josh puts it. There will be some experiences that you won’t be able to share with the person that you love and that steals away a little bit of joy from the moment.

Missing out in each other’s lives then leads to the fear of possibly growing apart.

This is exactly why being in a long distance relationship takes so much work and effort.

But no matter how hard it gets, there’s another side to it that you learn to love and this is what makes it all worth it.

With so much time apart, you start to love and appreciate each other so much more. As Josh notes, “You start to realize how much you really value them.”

One of best parts about it, is the excitement and adrenaline you feel every time you’re going to see each other again.

The weeks, days, hours and minutes leading up to the day that you two get to see each other and reconnect are filled with so much joy and excitement.

Another plus side to being apart for so long is that you always have stories chisme to tell.

There is no such thing as a dull moment between the two of you because there is always constant conversation.

But most importantly, being apart from each other makes you appreciate the little things.

As Chachi notes, there are things you start to notice about each other that other couples might take for granted. And once you start to notice and appreciate these small personality traits about each other, it makes you value that person for who they are so much more.
