Long Distance RelationshipA long distance relationship is a very challenging thing. Many have tried, and many have failed.

On the other hand, I personally know many couples who emerged victorious out of the battle, who moved and stayed together.

I receive many emails regarding how to survive this, and what the rules are… and how to support a relationship when you're thousands of miles apart.

Today I thought I would take a humorous approach, so you have something to laugh about (find the “real” 10 rules to make a LDR work here). Call it a funny aptitude check-up on surviving a love from a distance.

On the other hand, you can also turn every item on the whole list around, and end up with some pretty good advice on what's important for defying the distance.

Here are 10 reasons why long distance relationships could be a bad thing for you:

10. Your credo is, “out of sight, out of mind”, and you are a very unromantic person.

9. Your second credo is, “wait and see” rather than, “plan and act”, and you are a very lazy person.

8. You don't even trust your own mother. Everybody is a potential threat.

7. You are only interested in short-term amorous adventures. Your longest relationship lasted for 3 days only.

6. You keep your feelings and thoughts to yourself. Your shrink doesn't even know your name.

5. You are a couch-potato, leaving your apartment makes you freak out 'cause it's a real world out there.

4. You hate to be on the phone, because you work 12 hours a day in a call-center, where you have to sell insurance to lonely housewives.

3. You call your boy/girlfriend in the middle of the night, just to check if he/she's at home, then drive by, checking to see if their lights are on.

2. You are a computer noob. You think that yahoo messenger is a lottery cash notifier.

And the Number One Reason for not being suitable for LDR is:

1. You are just so pessimistic, that you look for the coffin when you see flowers.

If the above apply to you, then I recommend that you stay away from this kind of relationship. Otherwise, you will have a good chance for surviving.
