Long distance relationships or LDRs have always been a subject of debate—is it worth it, is it not? For outsiders, the idea is not something one will easily buy. But before you go asking couples in an LDR, you might want to ensure you don't cross some sort of boundaries. Here are things you shouldn't say to a couple in a long distance relationship.
1 Is that, like, a real relationship?
I don't think physical proximity is the main parameter for a relationship to be real. In fact, I think that the fact that we are geographically apart yet still emotionally attached says a lot about the legitimacy of our feelings.
2 Wow, and you're still together?
Why the ton of surprise? Are you seriously anticipating our break up? Your tone would suggest a celebration if we do actually break up. Not cool.
3 Isn't that tough?
Yes, it is. Thank you for that assessment, Captain Obvious.
4 Oh, poor you, sweetie.
I'm in a relationship where I love and am love. I am far from sad. Yes, things get tough, but that's part of it. The beauty of what we have outweighs the difficulty of it all.
5 How can you make sure he's not cheating on you?
Okay, thank you so much for contaminating my brain with your pessimistic thoughts! Now, if you may, please exit quietly to the side? I don't need your negativity.
6 Don't you think you're better off with someone else?
See, you don’t just get together with someone because it's easy, but because it'S worth it. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the idea of love.
