Are Long Distance Relationships Right for You?

Are long distance relationships worth the effort? As a professional dating coach who offers a personal matchmaking service for affluent men, I’m often asked this question by many of my clients. On the surface, a long distance relationship seems like a great way to get to know someone. You can write long emails, talk on the phone for hours, and learn as much as possible about one another until you get to see them in person. While it might help build a solid foundation for companionship, a long distance relationship doesn’t have what it takes to keep a relationship afloat. Here’s why:

Adds to Existing Problems

Traditional relationships in which two people get to see each other on a regular basis are hard enough. Why add to the problems by distance? Long distance relationships not only exasperate existing problems, but create new ones. That’s why when clients request my matchmaking services in NYC, I do my best to match them up with others who live in the same area.

Making Up is Hard to Do

When two people get into an argument, it’s important for both of them to be in the same room so they can have the intimacy they need to work things out. For example, body language is impossible to judge over the phone or via email and text. Emotions are also hard to read in writing or over the phone. Even if two people are able to solve their issues long distance, they can’t show affection and do the things normal couples do when they make up.
