It’s tough to make up your mind

luxury vehicles. If you can’t think
of where to go, don’t worry. Joining
the club also gets you a VIP
membership to Nikki Beach Club

Anyone who has ever been in a long-distance
relationship can certainly tell you how hard
it can be to make it work. But these situations
easily arise. Imagine that you fall in love with
him in town, and then he moves away. Or
perhaps you meet her at work, and suddenly
one of you relocates or goes back home to
another state or country. Sometimes you even
meet on a trip to Europe, and who can afford to
fly to Paris every weekend? It is truly difficult,
but not impossible. Even for those of you who
need that constant physical attention such
as hugs and kisses, it may not be impossible.
Some key elements should be spoken about
before committing. Define the relationship to
avoid future heartaches. Agree on what the
relationship will be like going forward. Are
you going to be just friends? Will you be able
to date, or go out with friends and co-workers?
Be honest with each other. Exercise patience
by avoiding conversations with whining
or unrealistic demands solely because you
are bored or missing the other person. Be
encouraging and motivational about daily
experiences. Make sure the relationship does
not distract you from your work or goals in life.
If you follow this advice, you’ll be on the road
to making your long-distance relationship last.

30 Moving Monument Smart Travel
It’s estimated that as many as
half of Americans settle within
50 miles of where they grew up,
although it may fluctuate because
of college and work at times.
The only mobile National
Monuments in existence today
in the U.S. are the historic cable
cars in San Francisco. Rice-A-Roni
