4 reasons to avoid long distance relationships

07 January 2016, 16:12 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - A lot of couples think they can handle a long distance relationship up until they are in it. It is work; and not just a two day feeling of loneliness after they go, but there comes the moments you wish they were there to talk to and you can’t so you end up talking to someone else. That is how emotional cheating happens. There are times you have an idea that you want to pass by someone, they are not there, so you go to the next best option; trust diminishes in former relationship. You no longer have important things to talk about other than hi and how was your day.

Cheating is hard when you are going to meet the person at the end of the day or for a lunch date. You will not notice it but when you accept that lunch date from a colleague because your partner is never there, it is the start of something else-cheating. You end up justifying your mistakes because, ‘they were not here either way!’

Respect the partner that told you they cannot be in a relationship with you because of the distance because they understand themselves and what they will need that they will miss out on.


It is so easy to justify why you are keeping something from your partner when they are away. You don’t want to worry them, why complicate things for them when what they do not know will not harm them and so on. You think you are the only one doing it but they might be on the same train of thought as you are. The trust in the relationship eventually ends because you two have not been truly honest with each other. That is how you end up seeking other people whom you are not bound to, to tell it all to.

To justify cheating

If someone tells you they cannot handle a long distance, it is because sex is part of a healthy relationship for most couples. If you are in an open relationship; I guess that is your business. But the majority are pretenders lying how they will last five years while one is at school and be abstinent. When the bomb drops they decide to just go on with it because either way, you have needs.


Secrecy and dishonesty are two completely different things; secrecy-you keep it from them. Dishonesty-you blatantly lie. You know what you have been lying about; financials, what you have been doing and if you are married- it is obvious how great those lies are.

They want to eat their cake and have it too

You want to have that honest, loving, faithful partner whom you are committed to but they are away. But you also want to see how far your colleagues legs go under her skirt or how good you fellow co-worker is at treating his women. So you shut up and have sugared conversations with the spouse and buy breakfast for the other one that is near you.
