How to Handle Long Distance Relationships

There are different categories of long distance relationships. Some are planned while some are not. In as much as sometimes it may be inevitable for you to avoid this kind of relationships.

1. Those people who start from a distance from the very first day, like those who started dating online or via telephone.
2. Those who started and separated immediately they started dating.
3. Those who do not often see each other, maybe they get to see like once a week or twice a month.
4. Those who have been on for a while and separate for example they could have been in the relationship for a few years and had to separate due to one thing or the other.
5. Those who are separate and have no plans of coming together.
