Being in a long-distance relationship is extremely hard as you can't see each other and for most people, they need to see their love ones often and spend a lot of time together if possible. The long-distance relationships also struggle a lot as they can't go on dates or Netflix and chill with their significant others as often. Plus with the pressure of relationship goals that are heavily promoted on social media now, it is not surprised that everyone tends to get angst when they are in long-distance relationships.
