DID YOU KNOW?

Did you know that 14 million people in the United States are in a long-distance relationship? This is the data existing as of the start of 2019, measured by an average of being at least 125 miles away from a person's partner. The Golden Age of Long-Distance Dating has come indeed. It coincides with the blossoming of internet technology, which is expected after all. We are in a time of surmountable geographic barriers with much less fear about falling out of touch. It is certain that the internet has contributed to increased numbers of long-distance relationships. Further, it has strengthened its persistence. Online dating and virtual activities have made more people willing to give these kinds of unions a chance. Even if they live on opposite ends of the country, or of the globe, lovers can constantly communicate with the best apps for long-distance couples.

Because of technology, virtual relationships go further than chatting. Virtual dates can mean more than just a casual chat or call nowadays. With 54 percent of Americans preferring to watch movies at home than going out to a movie theater, movie dates online is now a thing. The fun part is, you can stream the same movies with your partners at the same time with tools to watch videos in sync. Data suggests that separation time for couples may only last about 14 months due to different factors. Lack of communication among long-distance couples can spell trouble. However, with different platforms that help connect people better, being away from your loved one may not be that problematic after all.
