How does having a long distance relationship affect the individuals within the relationship?

Relationships are a joy but can sometimes be hard to manage. Each person may have their own beliefs on how the relationship should be and this made lead to a number of issues within the relationship. When trying to have a successful relationship one must have good communication and trust.CITE Without these two elements a good relationship may be hard to manage. When involved in a relationship you may want to spend plenty of time with your significant other, but if there is distance between the two of you it may be hard to do. Distance may cause many issues within the relationship, but if managed correctly the relationship could still be successful. I have conducted this study to see what effects a long distance relationship has on the individuals within the relationship overtime. The purpose of this ___ (study) is to explore the effects of long distance relationships on college students. At this stage in the research, the effects of long distance relationships will be generally defined as a relationship that one has with an individual of the opposite or same sex that lives a certain amount of miles away from them.
