Communication is truly a powerful device in settling disputes, problems and the like, it's also the best weapon in keeping a mature relationship last, but with this presence is also needed to have the love grow and for each lover to know one another. In this sense, how can communication now replace the presence that one person needs especially if its comes to relationship who are separated by miles. What can you say about this fellow mylotters?

I think yes.It is very important for the couples or lovers to have a constant communication. Long distance relationship is very risky most especially when the other one does not cooperate with that kind of relationship. To love is a cooperative effort and it really takes a lot of effort to show and to share love.Quarreling is also a way of communication to a long distance relationship, although you are arguing at least you are having a conversation rather than nothing at all.

Hello zip12ph, greetings. With the advent of modern communication, long distance relationship are being nurtured and taken cared of. People can easily reach, share each other feelings and concerns. Unlike before, because of the high costs of communication, relationship has been jeopardized if not altogether abandoned.

Hi mangtony, i'm not trying to sound so negative, i agree that communicate is still important but from my observations, even the modern technology cant still secure that communication is well serve especially to those who are experiencing long distance relationship. I think it would still depend on the parties on how they deal with this situation and sometimes what they say is not what they meant. I still would say that physical presence equipped with communication would be better. Have a nice day.

Well i totally agree to your point. Communication is the key to any relationship be it short distance or long distance relationship. better communication helps in overcoming all the obstacles and misunderstandings between the partners. besides, with a proper communication, there is a better flow of emotions, feelings and responses between the two partners that helps in strengthening the relationship and make it a beautiful affair. What say?

Yes, communication really is, but considering the fact that presence of the person is also important, especially in cases when problem arises and you need someone to be there for you, sometimes talking or mere chatting is not enough. Sometimes its the absence of someone even though you communicate, cant prevent one from longing the presence and sometimes lead to looking for someone who is physically there for you. Oh well..thanks

Yes, most definitely! Communication does make or break a relationship. It helps also that you and your partner put some effort on your everyday communication. Because it’s far different from your usual relationship since it’s a distance between you and your partner. Somehow, keeping in touch with your partner pulls off a great effort that you care more about your relationship with him/her.

I guess the you could both add up faith, love and good communication for long distance relationship. You could say it will feel so long and sad, but nothing is permanent. Maybe someday you will be both back unto each arms, so near, cuddling on each one.

Communication is the most important part of any relationship. Communication helps the relationship to grow to a deeper level. Sharing of emotions and feelings can be scary and open each other up to risks but that is what proves to each other if the relationship is valuable to each person. Communication provides for a level of trust in the relationship. Communication has been the cause of my marriage to fail and it hasnt been long distance it has always been in person. Now my other relationship is long distance and we communicate often many times a week threw text and phone calls but the relationship needs the normal human contact of being with each other too. Long distance relationships are difficult communication needs to be at its best to survive the miles you are separated by.

Hi friend, distance is not a factor for a good and real relationship. If the affection is real then we can keep the communication even though our beloved person is staying far away from our place.

When you love a person, distance is not the hindrance. When it started as a long distance relationship, presence should not be an issue as you should have thought about it before entering the relationship. A relationship is not just about love, it would also mean sacrifice. And yes, Communication is very important even for those who are living in the same roof.

For me, communication is not enough to maintain a long distance relationship. I really need someone in my side, and what i need is within easy reach of happiness.

Hi Zip! I agree with you. I had a long distance relationship. He was in the far province while I was in the city. We hardly have communication. I tried to contact him every day but there was no answer. I was thinking that he might be busy and unable to reach with me. Actually we only had contacts ONCE every 3 to 4 months! He texted me then called me. It was just a short conversation then bye. No communication at all. Then I will just contact him every day. After 3 months, we had talked with each other, then no communication again. I was deeply inlove back then that I endured every thing just somehow to meet him again personally again. Then for our first anniversary, he visited me here in the city. We had simple date. Hehehe... But after a month, I broke up with him. It was hard but I found it fun because I was super inlove. :P communication is very important even not with long distance relationship but all kinds :)

Indeed communication is really the key. And of course trust also from both parties. Without the combination of this two, relationship would never last that long.Like for example you are in along relationship or even not, tough you always communicate but trust does not exist even from one of the parties, disputes really would be built leading to breakup.

There is no communication that will help me live with a long distance relationship. none at all. If I have to be separated by miles then I will break up with him and wish him the best in life. I am never going to be in a long distance relationship ever again.
