Long Distance Love Laid BareAuthored on October 7, 2021
This month on Into You, we dive deeper into the science of long-distance dating as Fern chats to psychologist, relationship coach and family therapist, Elena Semenek.
Elena explains why someone may be drawn to a long-distance relationship, the hardest part about being so far away from your partner from a psychological perspective, and shares her six stages of long-distance relationships. Down-to-earth, honest and passionate, Elena's words will help you to decide whether long-distance love is the right thing for you or someone you care about.
This is invaluable advice for anyone considering far-flung romance - or (as always) anyone fascinated by dating dynamics in general!
Long Distance LoveAuthored on September 2, 2021
On this month's Into You, we're asking the question, "Does absence really make the heart grow fonder?" as we find out what it's like to be in love with someone who lives far away from you.
I chat to Leo (from France) and Kyomi (from Peru), about the long-distance relationship which started when they met via a language exchange app called Tandem. Leo and Kyomi share what it was like when their first meeting was rudely interrupted by the pandemic and how they kept their long-distance love alive during lockdown.
I also speak to Grace, a YouTuber from Taiwan, who has had three long-distance relationships and shares her roller coaster journey to happiness, and gives advice about what you should consider before jumping into "this kind of sweet nightmare."
So grab your map and get ready to go the distance as we find out what love is like when your partner lives half a world away!
