Distance in a relationship can be either physical or mental. Long distance relationships are happening a lot nowadays as so many people are meeting through the internet. I sometimes think a physical distance is a little easier to deal with than emotional distance. When you are far away from the one you love, you miss being able to have a good morning kiss and to just have someone to hold you on the hard days. That is gut-wrenching, but at the same time, you have the hope that one day you will be together properly and everything will be just as you want.
Emotional distance is a lot tougher to overcome sometimes. One minute, you think everything is fine and you and your partner are on the exact same wavelength, then suddenly you have absolutely no idea what is going on in the other person's head. You want to talk about it, but they don't, or they tell you nothing is wrong when it is obvious that isn't the case. So, you keep quiet and hope it blows over. Maybe it will, maybe it won't.
The fact is, if you are a talker and you partner refuses to discuss anything, you may have to just accept that is the way things are or break it off and find someone who understands why talking is so important.
