How does the French feel about long distance relationships? Me and this amazing French guy have been seeing each other and having an awesome time together but he's going back to France for studies in September. I hate long distance relationships but I wouldn't mind it with him, so if most French guys won't do it, I'll just try not to like this guy even more :( aaaah
I can’t tell you exactly because everybody’s different, everybody reacts differently to long distance relationships.
My opinion on long distance relationships is that there are codes you should be aware of before comitting into it :
- Both need to be quite talkative. Talking is all you have in long distance relationships, you’d better date someone who doesn’t mind calling you/being called very often.
- It’s not about quantity, it’s about quality : When you see each other, you have to do really cool stuff together and spend really quality time together to keep the flame burning, you know what I mean.
- Be creative is a very enjoyable point : Being far away doesn’t mean you can’t surprise your partner, especially with internet. Little attentions are a key to me to preserve the affection you guys have for each other
- You also have to be quite independant to deal with the frustration of not having hugs or kisses or even social life together.
Think about all these points first. If you think you both are capable of that, then just directly talk to him about that. Honestly discuss that with him, and you’ll know right away. It’s better to have an honest “no” (so you know you can move on) than a shy “let’s try” and being stuck in a shitty situation!
