College graduates

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

We would like to help others. We know how hard being in a long distance relationship can be. We've gone through many of the issues that occur frequently in LDRs. We've resolved many, and since we're currently in a LDR, we might even have the same issue others have!

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Many people think that long distance relationships cannot work. They believe that a long distance relationship isn't a "real" relationship. This is hard for a lot of people to deal with, especially when their friends and family members feel this way, and sometimes discourage their LDR. It's a myth that LDRs don't work; I know they do.
