Being in LDR (Long Distance Relationship) and maintaining that love spark is like winning a war. One simple reason might be that this kind of relationship takes a lot of work. However, such relationships can be good for someone, if it is managed properly on all fronts. A relationship takes work and LDR’s are no different.
To sustain a long distance relationship, the couples have to be connected, committed, loyal, and of course, a little creative. Distances don’t matter if you are deeply in love with someone unless you’re not connected with each other. Although 14 million couples out of the total world’s population i.e. 7.6 billion, are in a long distance relationship, only a few of them take their relationship to the next level. There are some particular long distance relationship problems due to which they could not succeed, which leads people to take less interest in these relationships.
Communication Gap: Couples in a long distance relationship, don’t get sufficient time to express their love for each other. You can call it a communication gap. Due to busy schedules, different time zones etc, couples are not able to give time to each other.
Trust Issues: Trust issues are common in all relationships but distance multiplies it proportionally. It is the major reason for unsuccessful long distance relationships. People in LDR have more tendency to doubt their partners and its simply because of insecurities.
Lack of intimacy: A sexless relationship can frustrate and depress both the partners as they don’t get to spend quality time with other. Intimacy is required to have a healthy relationship and the lack of it is a common problem in many relationships.
Seriously, it’s one tough challenge to survive and achieve happiness in a long distance relationship.

The biggest challenge of a long distance relationship is maintaining the spark despite the distance. Usually the thing that happens in long distance relationships is people run out of topics to discuss. Conversations becomes monotonous and eventually they become a burden for those who are not so committed. The communication gap also plays a vital role in breakups.
Trust is also a very tricky topic in such relationships. Many people, including family and friends, would discourage you from being involved in a long distance relationship. For the whole relationship to work, the people involved must be willing to invest and work for it instead of working on it if it "feels" like there is a need to. Being in a long distance relationship is not easy, regardless of the distance and timeline. However, if one person in the relationship is unsure yet thinks that the relationship is something he or she should be into and like it, they should commit to it.
A lot of people know that they will not do well in a long distance relationship. It is different when you can barely see each other and be with each other in person. It is still different when you are able to talk with each other face to face and when you know that you can just see each other whenever you want to.
The distance between you and your partner will surely be hard. There are also other people who are nearer who may be able to provide the needs that other people will not be able to give. It might not be worth your time to be with someone that you cannot be with for a long time. Do remember that for some people, long distance relationships just work very well. It will still depend from one person to another.
Most of the time I saw the relationship is being strong day to day with togetherness, if you both partner are living on a different location then you both are not giving time to each other & even not caring. And the relationship is a care, love, attention, togetherness, feeling, enjoy, understand & many mores & when we are living on a different location then we are not able to do all things most of the time.
Sometimes we learn to live along without your partner because we compromising all the thing day to day.
