This week, I shared the 10 best pieces of advice for long-distance relationships on Modern Love Long Distance. Relationships are never easy. Life is messy, and good relationships don’t just happen. They take a lot of work. Throw distance into the mix, and you have even more baggage—literally and figuratively—to deal with. But for the right person, it’s worth it.
For years, my long-distance partner and I dealt with time differences (he lived in the Netherlands, and I lived in the U.S.), frustrating misunderstandings and confusing circumstances. We did everything we could to make our long-distance relationship work—and I mean everything—and I am happy to say we bridged the gap and recently got married.
To read my advice on how to keep the romance alive, the loneliness at bay and the end in sight, head on over to Modern Love Long Distance.
