They were also reviewed and analyzed several factors, potentially affecting the outcome of relationships and subjective state partners:
1. Frequency of personal meetings.
Dnd Aylor received the results of that trust in a relationship can be the greatest have an LDR couples who meet regularly in person, even in comparison with the usual relations and LDR pairs, with an extremely rare meeting face to face.
The study Emmrgie (2013) also received high satisfaction rates among couples who are in relationships at a distance. That is, it turned out that even at far distances with very few meetings can be a viable and satisfy to a large extent. However, there is one annoying thing…
2. “Cognitive errors”.
There are studies showing that when assessing an LDR relationship partners systematically allowed “cognitive errors,” such as the idealization of the partner, relationship and future together. In a normal relationship is like an illusion of perception dissipates as engaging in intense emotional communication and joint pastime (especially on one of the housing areas). For a long-distance relationship, this turning point can be postponed for a long time (even years), especially if the relationship pretty quickly after meeting gained the status of communication at a distance.
3. Definite plans for the future.
Definiteness of plans (when we move in, and what city you want to live) and their satisfaction with the course are for each of the partners is an important Foundation for confidence in long distance relationships. It is in relationship with the future the easiest way to find the strength and resources to invest.
Inconsistent actions or reactions of at least one of the partners in this matter may lead to strong dissatisfaction with the relationship and doubt in his mate. A meaningful coincidence of plans and dreams of both is also crucial for confidence in the relationship.
4. Personal settings about a long-distance relationship.
Subjective perceptions have great impact on the outcome of a romantic relationship. This conclusion comes a substantial portion of studies devoted to the relationship. LDR is no exception. The more pairs of participants personal irrational belief that “long-distance relationships are no worse and be a couple”, the greater the satisfaction with the relations at the stage of separation and the higher the probability to preserve them until they transition to their life together.
Clear boundaries in relationships at a distance
It is in relationship to distances is easier than in conventional relations may be “timeless” situation of uncertainty, when there is a sense that “here” everything will go according to plan. However, “here” is delayed, giving rise to a strong sense that the dream would never come because of institutional or any other barriers. That may help at least partially restore the lost peace in a time of “storm” and immersion in timelessness – the definition itself of the limits and meaning of expectations (the expectation of a certain event within a certain period of time with the need to make a decision on the expiration of the chosen term). If this comes out, it is appropriate to look at it as unfolding inside the personal conflict that requires attention.
