"Long distance relationships don't work!"
We've all heard this a billion times...but we also all have a friend who is totally making it work (or at least trying to!) I think LDR are hard. But so are all relationships! In some ways, I think being in a LDR at least for part of your relationship forces you to solve communication barriers that might never be addressed otherwise! There's pros and cons, but seriously, it's possible to make it through!
You might know youtuber Michelle Phan for her makeup and what not, but she also was in a long distance relationship for a long time, and has some advice on how to make it work!! I really love this video, because even though they just met briefly there were able to continue the relationship for 2 years until they met again!! 2 years!!!
They also uploaded this video quite a while after the first one answering more questions about them and their relationship!
I don't know if they're still together now, but I do know that they managed to create an awesome relationship even while living so far away from each other, and that's something that I think can inspire anyone else in this situation :)
