I hate long distance relationships but sometimes it's necessary. A lot of people struggle with it not because of the dynamics but because of the thought "If he's closer, this will work out." It's kind of like you're missing something that's possible. There's a regret of not living closer to each other.
Let me give you some general instructions on how you can make your long distance relationship work but I need to give you some fundamental principles about it too.
Long distance is good because it creates tension and uncertainty. Distance creates confusion and uncertainty. It makes a guy imagine about you and be infatuated with you BUT the problem is that it becomes frustrating. Sometimes frustration can override the desire to be with the person especially if you're insecure. It's difficult to have a long-distance relationship if you're insecure.
The meeting is great with a long distance relationship. There's a tension when you meet up but the issue is that in order to make it work, you'll need proximity. The key is to get him to move closer, you could do everything but if you don't plan in living together or at least living closer it's not going to work out.
So how do you get a guy to live closer to you? Talk about the future and make it seem like he’s not included.
Living together is very important and if you don't have that it doesn't matter how much it could've worked out. If you don't cut the distance short, it doesn't matter how perfect the chemistry is; something's going to get in the way. Realize that if he’s too far, there are other people.
