Paul has been in a number of long distance relationships, including international ones. Born in the UK, he now lives in Florida.
Thanks to the internet and globalization, long distance relationships are becoming increasingly common. I've been through a number of them myself, including a couple of international ones. In my experience, although they can be challenging, long distance relationships can also be very rewarding.
The ups and downs of a remote romance can feel dramatic. You go through periods where you feel excited, especially in the run up to meeting. Other times you feel lonely and frustrated. You miss the other person intensely. Arguments are awful when they occur, and it is much easier for misunderstandings to happen when you are apart. You have to trust each other more. The difficulties are all worth it though, if you can work through them.
Quotes can be very powerful things. They provide hope, comfort, and reassurance during testing times, so I thought it would be useful to put together some of my own. I've divided the quotes into separate groups to make it easier for people to find an appropriate one for their situation.
