Most couples don’t survive a long-distance relationship because of the lack of maturity to deal with the more complex and often unpredictable nature of this kind of commitment.
If you’re insecure, you lack the confidence to trust your partner
Negative thinking can greatly damage a relationship and being in an LDR is not the perfect place to choose pessimism over-optimism. Combined with the inability to stay patient, you’ll get a complete formula for failure.
You fear change and will do anything to stay where you are because you believe that this is the only place where you cannot be hurt. This attitude will eventually affect your relationship, especially if you are miles away from each other.
You don't believe in apologies and you feel that apologizing for what you did is a sign of weakness. In a long distance relationship, there's a big chance that you'll fight often especially during the first months of it - and it's such a crucial stage that it often leads to most breakups.
You don’t value your significant other’s feelings and you always only think about yourself.
You always think that it’s your fault whenever things go wrong. You have extremely low self-esteem and you often think the worse about yourself.
You don’t really love your partner and you’re just not strong enough to tell them that.
If further long-term commitments are made by both parties and those commitments don't bring the two any closer together, someone's likely to pull the plug.
Many long-distance relationships end because the world keeps turning, but fortunately for those whose long-distance relationship ends, life goes on for them, as well.
