Does long distance kill relationships?

Long distance can make a relationship sick. However, what eventually kills a long-distance relationship is not distance but the adverse reactions of couples. In other words, your reactions determine the fate of your LDR. For example, if you react with fear, insecurity, mistrust and hatred, then your relationship could die.

On the other hand, if you react with trust, love and understanding, your relationship will live and survive. A lack of distance or too much distance can, in some cases, ruin a relationship. When you live together, you need to have a personal space. If you're in a long-distance relationship, you need a plan to make it work and a timeline for when you move in together.
