6 Benefits of a Long Distance Relationship
Time will be spent on the mental and emotional more than on the physical.

I honestly feel like as an introvert, I really enjoyed long distance relationships because even though I did talk to the person on the phone… I did have more time to myself that I didn’t have to dedicate to another person. Don’t get me wrong, some people can be clingy within a long distance relationship and they may want to be on the phone a lot, but for me.. I liked the concept at the time of keeping the distance.
You both will probably save more money because you won’t be going out all of the time to eat or go to different events.
