What does distance do to a relationship?
Makes it wider
Makes it easier to cheat
It depends upon the amount of time apart, and how attached a couple feels.
People tend to overexaggerate their attachment. A week apart can bring a couple together, but is by no means a rule. A decade apart is likely to break a couple apart.
After being together for 41 years, my husband's been out of town for over a week. I am just starting to miss him. He has missed me for quite a while. Oh and I guess in our case not being around him I like him more
You can have a relationship, but international relationships are huge turn offs because you don't know what you're dealing with.
It also depends on where you are in life. Two kids going off to colleges far away. Forget it. Older late 20's looking for a forever person it can.
It can do either one depending on how dedicated the couple is to each other.
It depends on the people involved. I know this I'd talking about a romantic relationship. But I lost one of my best friends to distance. One the other hand, I have another BEST friend that I spent more time away from than with.
Absence makes the heart grow fonder or absence makes the heart forget. Pick it!
My ex was military (met here) but passed overseas.... I said grows it cuz he called/wrote. I never cheated on him & still haven't moved on. He was in Pakistan so...
Too much and not enough will hurt
Everything in moderation. My wife and I had a long distance relationship prior to marriage and there was always joy, excitement, sadness, than joy again when we got together.
Been there. Yes it destroys it.
Can do either, depends no depth.
Ask airline pilots if distance hurts a marriage.
Distance was perfect for a short time (3 months) in mine and my husband relationship. I also had no access to a phone more than once a week. We wrote letters everyday. I knew he was the one for me by the time I got home.
Define distance. Constant distance? Short travel?
Physical presence is extremely important in a relationship. Humans need visual, hormonal, and tactile cues in order to stay attracted and loving towards someone.
Overall, it's likely that it damages the relationship.
Neither of these, necessarily. It probably exacerbates any flaws in the relationship, but it is unlikely to make a good relationship better. Distance is a challenge that can be accommodated.
I go to OSU, she goes to Case western. This semester she is in scottland to study abroad. Its not damaging, its hard to measure growth though.
Depends on the relationship, but most often distance destroys it.
I think it depends on the people involved.
Yes. Very much so.
