— Miriam from Chicago Sometimes I feel like the climate scientist who’s trying to tell the world about the ravages of global warming and someone gets up and says, “But it was cold in Milwaukee today, so there can’t possibly be global warming.” So let me put this as clearly as possible, once and for all: One way to look at who you are today is as a product of 3 million years of evolution.All of your design features and behaviors are molded by evolution, in the same way that the Grand Canyon’s molded by wind, water and sand.But it’s hard to argue that if you’re not living in the same city (or even state) as your beau, you’re probably hoping to — at least, eventually — end up together geographically at some point. Some relationships prosper, while others don’t — in fact, the majority don’t.Related: The One Important Thing Long-Distance Couples Do Better Than Us" data-reactid="24"Related: The One Important Thing Long-Distance Couples Do Better Than Us So when a couple actually manages to survive long distance to end up in the same spot, it’s natural for them to think they’ve finally reached the light at the end of the tunnel. One 2007 study in the Journal of Social and Personal Relationships found that upon reuniting, 82 percent of LDR couples broke up.Generation Y Canadians (those born between 19) are experiencing a very different life in their twenties from what Generation X (those born between 19) and the Baby Boomers (born 1957 to 1966) experienced.
Reuniting after an LDR comes with its own set of relationship challenges.However, when it comes to positive communication, we do not talk often enough (for me) so the postive gaps get filled in some times w/email and text and (dare I say) messages on FB (but not on the wall).We also have had a lot of fun s/exting…as our physical relationship is also long distance, and there can be an emotional component to turning each other on via text also. “I don’t know how you do it.”more likely to idealize their partners than couples who live close to each other, leading to unrealistic expectations.And the longer you go without seeing someone, the greater your chances of winding up in Splitsville.In all regions of the world, most people over age 30 are either currently in a long-term coresidential sexual union, or they have been at one time in their lives.
