‘Long Distance Relationships…do they work?’ Tonight on “Conversations Of A Sistah”


long-distance-relationships-the-10-step-guide

I’ve heard all of the success stories of long-distance relationships and they’ve all made me wonder if they are actually realistic? Meaning can two people sincerely maintain a monogamous relationship in any long-distance situation and keep it faithful?

Thinking about the physical aspect of being apart from each other, what temptations will arise as the two individuals live with the relationship being apart? Does love long distance depend on the two individuals involved? 

And what type of cynical thoughts does one in love, long distance have in the meantime?

  1. What is that person doing with his/her spare time when you’re apart?
  2. Is he/she cheating?
  3. Is there someone local that their involved with but they keep that long distance relationship because they’re getting from the long-distance relationship what they can’t get locally.
  4. If there is no sex in the relationship, does it make the temptation even greater? Or is sex even an expectation?
  5. Is there actually someone else in the background?
  6. Is he/she cheating?
  7. Is he/she cheating?
  8. Because I’m out of sight, am I also out of mind?
  9. Is the bond between us strong enough to sustain the separation?
  10. Where is the trust and will it strengthen your convictions in the relationship?

  7. I can’t wait to hear your show Ms. Bell.
    When there’s love anything can survive and be worked through. You yearn for that person. My wife and I were long distance at first but i wanted her to move out to Texas where I was and she did. I relocated her and her job allowed her to work on a contract from our home in Texas. So it all worked out.

        I listened to the show tonight but I can’t relate to long distance relationships. If I was in love with somebody who had to move away I guess I would have to let em go because I don’t wanna deal with loving somebody from afar. sorry 😦

  9. I would be too tempted to cheat if I was in a long distance relationship 😆 I gotta love my woman, touch my woman and feel on her curves. if I can’t have her in da flesh yeah I would be too tempted to roam.

  10. I’m in a long distance relationship and none of the above questions even so much as cross my mind. I only have eyes for my boyfriend and we are crazy about each-other. I trust him and he trusts me. I don’t find it hard at all to stay faithful; he’s the only boy I want so there really is no temptation. Relationships, distance or otherwise depend on the two people in it. If someone is gonna cheat they will do it whether their partner lives nearby or far away. If they are not someone who would cheat they will not cheat either way. It’s quite simple.

    I’m in a long distance relationship and the only time I think about what he’s doing is when I’m not with him doing it and because we’re always thinking about each other. I trust my fiancé and thank God he trust me. we use and spend our time wisely together.

    Sunshine, moonlight, delight

  27. Being in a relationship is a tough job in itself. On top of that if you are in a long distance relationship, life becomes even harder. Definitely distance makes the heart grow fonder. But distance in a relationship for a very long time can be really stressful. I agree with Tra if it’s long distance there has to be a common goal in mind like marriage or something.

  28. Tracy I enjoyed the show!!!
    But Nah I’m not so trusting that I’d be willing to even consider a long distance relationship. I know a woman who was married to a man and he carried on a long distance relationship with another woman for 10 years. When she found out he ended with the long distance person and decided to work on his wife’s forgiveness yet his wife was always checking his cell phone to see if he was still communicating with this other woman. See I couldn’t live like that NO thank you! I would a left his ass because of the emotional infidelity alone.

  32. all I can say is make sure your relationships are already established b4 considering a pen pal long distance. Cause people lie for the thrill of it. they like the fantasy of having you believe what they feed you.
