As someone who has so far been in a one year long distance relationship, I find myself agreeing with every one of your words. Although we aren't big on video-chat, we mainly stick to texting / calling, our conversations are so profound and so deep. We dwell on the distance from time to time, but I think that's healthy & normal. Our intimacy and sexuality regarding each other is strong and unlike anything I've ever experienced with past relationships.We are very good at talking through arguments and coming out stronger on the other side, giving helpful beneficial advice when one of us is down, and being genuinely interested in each others life. I think the main takeaway from your reply and mine, is that if the mutual commitment and dedication and passion is there, then long distance won't stop the tenacity of a growing strong relationship.
