Make Long Distance Relationship (LDR) work

Many people are in a long distance relationship, thanks to technology. At present, there are various platforms for lovers to keep in touch and interestingly, and with these platforms becoming relatively affordable most sincere relationships can survive the test of time.

 

Breakup made easy

Since technology creates a wider platform to meet people, very few people are willing to remain in crappy and unhappy relationships. They know if they breakup, in the next few months, they are chatting with another potential lover on Facebook. Many are taking online meetings to offline and converting them into loving relationships. Notwithstanding the risk, people still engage in it.

Many have become sleuth

You can find anybody you meet on the surface of the earth as far as they have an online presence. If she is in a hurry and you could not get her phone number, ensure that she tells you her name and Google it!

However, for some people they have become online detectives especially when they are obsessed with somebody. They navigate from Facebook to twitter, and Instagram just to satisfy their obsession. Love was quite simple, but today with all the tech shenanigans, it is now complicated!

 

Very few invest in their relationship

Technology has made things very elementary. In the past,  painstaking attempts were made to keep a relationship spicy and loving. But, with the World Wide Web, you can simply sit in the comfort of your room chatting with your partner. Both of you may not even see each other for months. Why should you see each other when both of you are already having fun on WhatsApp?
