Long distance relationships are incredibly challenging. After all, much of the joy of being in a relationship comes from the interests we share and the activities we do together.

When you’re living in another state or country, though, you can’t share these simple day-to-day activities with the person you cherish.

You can’t gaze into one another’s eyes and enjoy the pleasures of physical contact, or even share the simple joy of one another’s presence. And depending on the situation, you may not know if or when you’ll be able to see each other again.

Long distance relationships can be one of the most difficult things you’ll ever have to face, but they can also be very rewarding.

When you’re in a long distance relationship, you develop personal strength and consistency. You learn how to make a commitment, even when things are difficult. You discover the power of your relationship to overcome all obstacles. These long distance relationship quotes come from others who have been in your situation, and have found the best in it.

These long distance relationship quotes will help you to see the best when you are struggling, and remind you how lucky you are to have someone amazing in your life—even if you don’t get to see him or her nearly often enough.
