What are the chances a long-distance relationship will work?

Long-distance relationships have a 58 percent success rate, according to new study. According to a new research of 1,000 Americans who have been in a long-distance relationship, whether you and your partner make it through the long-distance period is a coin flip. The study was conducted by Match.com and found that people in long-distance relationships have an equal chance of staying together as people in nearby relationships.

These statistics may seem bleak, but they're not really telling the whole story. Long-distance relationships are more likely to succeed if both parties are committed to making it work. If you find yourself in a long-distance relationship and don't want it to end, take time out from your busy life to think about what's important to you and what matters most when you make a decision about where you and your partner will go next.

Long-distance relationships can be difficult, but if you find a way through the difficulties then they can also be very rewarding. Remember that there is no right or wrong thing to do in a long-distance relationship, but only what works for you and your partner.

Are long-distance college relationships worth it?

According to the Pace Press study, 80.1 percent of students in long-distance relationships said it was worthwhile to face the disadvantages of distance. More than half of the students polled feel that seeing one other after a long time apart is far more satisfying. Distance makes the heart grow fonder as well. A little over half of all respondents agreed with this statement.

These statistics show that people in long-distance relationships benefit from them. If you are part of such a relationship then you should consider staying connected even if you are separated for an extended period of time.

Staying connected even when you aren't together can be done in many ways including phone calls, e-mails, and video chats. Some couples even meet in person once a year even if they are miles apart. This way they can still have some type of connection and don't miss out on important times in each other's lives.

Long-distance relationships can be difficult at times but most respondents to the Pace Press study agree that they are worth it. If you are in a long-distance relationship then you should try not to let the distance get you down. Keep communicating even if it's just for few words every day. That way you won't feel so lonely even though your partner is thousands of miles away.

Is it possible to flirt with your long-distance partner?

They are difficult, to be sure, but you can cultivate a long distance love if you are both prepared to work at it. You have a far higher chance when both partners are honest and willing to keep the relationship going strong. Of course, you'll need some suggestions on how to flirt with your spouse so that you can contribute to the spark.

The first thing you should know is that although you cannot see your partner, they can still sense when you are interested in them. Your eyes will always give away your true feelings, but your body language can tell them much more than that. If you are sitting close together, arms around each other, then there is a good chance that your interest is really there.

You should also remember that they too are missing you and want to feel your presence. So, imagine for a moment that you are separated by a few thousand miles of air, then you will understand why it is so hard to hold a conversation over the phone. Even if you speak regularly, without any delay, it's still very difficult to convey what you're feeling at that moment. And even if you try your best, you may not be able to express yourself properly due to the language barrier.

However, there are ways you can show your partner that you are thinking about them even if you can't talk to them. For example, you could send them gifts, write them letters, email them photos of you wearing their clothes... The list is endless!

Why is communication so important in a long-distance marriage?

Interestingly, some studies demonstrate that long-distance couples are more satisfied with their communication than couples who live together, most likely because they recognize the value of communication. Communication issues are common in long-distance marriages, as they are in any other relationship. If you are having trouble communicating, try these tips.

You will have better communication with your spouse if you understand how they process information and feel about things. Do not assume that just because they did not fight with their last partner that they will agree with everything you say or do. They may have their own thoughts and opinions that differ from yours. Take the time to talk with them about how they feel so that you can both be on the same page.

Communication is key in any relationship, but it becomes even more important in a long-distance marriage. When you are apart, it can be difficult to know what your spouse is going through without being right there with them. By talking openly with each other, you give each other the opportunity to express themselves and work out their problems.

The more you communicate, the less misunderstandings will arise between you. Make sure you stay connected with your spouse even when they are not physically near you. Email and text messages are great ways to keep in touch without costing you anything extra. You can also call or write letters to each other using one of these methods.
