What makes long distance relationships special?
It gives a validity to the truth of what is unconditional. Much of what we think is Love parameters we set to only what is near, but when you move that love to a place afar, you create the world where what you fathom is a depth stonger than without for it consumes by what you have within. Kind of gives a new meaning ( or actually may be more correct ) to the phrase, No greater love has one than this, and that is they lay down their life for another. If you think on this, you will contemplate its truth? Being near or far is a state of mind. :)
