do long distance relationships count as real relationships?Watch
I would argue against this, you can't trust people you only know online. Tbh to make it as a friend of mine you would need to prove to me that you are willing to do a bid for me if it came to it.
So yes, a long distance relationship is a relationship.
I think what you mean however is will it count as a romantic relationship - but that would very much depend on your definition of romance. You can talk to each other, video call each other, send each other gifts.. it sounds romantic to me if you make it so, but personally I wouldn't be able to live without the physical aspect of a relationship. I don't just mean sex, I mean holding hands, lying next to each other in bed, going shopping together.. I think it's the small things that really make a relationship, and that's just not going to be present in yours.
But nobody has any right to tell you how to live your life, so if you want to be faithful to another person, and it is a long distance relationship, then that is absolutely up to you, so if makes you happy then go for it.
I live in London and my grandparents are up-north.. do we have to live in the same household?
this applies to couples too!, but I assume they are eventually going to reduce that distance or atleast move in together one day.
