Many people would ask me how we kept such a relationship going. I found out very quickly that we were not unique; we even have a name!
A 2011 article in CNN's travel section called us “geographical singles”.
The disadvantage of these long-distance relationships is that you are on a perpetual honeymoon.
You never get to be around each other long enough to be in mundane moments and moods; to not look or feel your best, to have your differences and be able to resolve them in an amicable manner, while still being two different individuals, and this is something that geographical singles should be aware of.
Just a year prior, I had told a guy who lived in New York, (same continent and time zone as me) that I did not believe in long-distance relationships.People in our party streamed in at different times and among them, a good-looking stud with blonde hair and a thick accent.He sat next to me at the large table of about 20 people.Yet, here I was discussing the terms of a relationship that would span across oceans.I remember sitting at the airport with my then boyfriend while he waited to board his plane to Germany.
