Long distance relationships (LDR's) are tricky. The normal challenges of having feels for someone are there, but with the added stress of spending three hours trying to figure out what that 3 word text really meant.
This Monday, at 8pm AEST we'll all jump online at the same time to talk through tips and tricks to worry about the distance less and enjoy the relationship more!

Excited to be chatting with you all today!!
Best start with our first question!!
How many people have had or have long distance friendships or long distance relationships? What makes them different from other friend/relationships?

I have had 2 long distance relationships! One was a decent distance (about 1000km apart)
The other one is only about 300km, so i don't know if that counts as long distance or just distance?
There's heaps of differences, you can't just go give someone a hug, it's hard to just do random day to day life stuff that i think is actually a pretty special part of being in a relationship, and it's surprisingly easy to spend a very long time talking to someone about all the stuff you did between now and when you talked to them for ages literally 24 hours ago
