“The theatre was created to tell people the truth about life and the social situation.” -Stella Adler

Movies can teach us a lot about ourselves, our lives & our relationships.

While on the surface they can seem to be just entertaining time-wasters, if you look close enough you can find all sorts of useful tidbits about life in the dialogue of a film.

Here are 5 film quotes that can give us some helpful advice about being in a Long Distance Relationship.

Going The Distance


“I’ll be here and you’ll be there and we’ll just be long-distance. Because quite frankly, I’m crazy about you.”

Being long distance is hard, but it’s also do-able! When you’re ‘crazy’ about someone, splitting up doesn’t have to mean the demise of the relationship. You can keep the romance going even when far apart.

You’ve Got Mail


“I’m a brilliant businessman. It’s what I do best. What’s your business?” “No specifics, remember?”

Times haves certainly changed in the world of online dating since You’ve Got Mail dazzled the movie screens! Still, for long distance relationships that start online, it’s still important to always remember to keep private details private as you get to know each other. Trusting someone you’ve never met online right off the bat is never a good idea. Safety first!

An Affair To Remember


“We’d be fools to let happiness pass us by”

You’ll come across lots of people who feel that you shouldn’t be in a long distance relationship -and you may even doubt the plausibility of it yourself! But if you really love each other you’ll be able to make your relationship work near or far. Work to keep who it is you love and what makes you happy.

The Lake House


“I found you and I let myself get lost; lost in this beautiful fantasy where time stood still “

While it can be easy to get lost in the romantic parts of being in an LDR, its also important to think practically. Distance is hard and can’t last forever. So while it may be okay for you to be long distance for the time being, do make sure to make good concrete plans for closing the distance. Time doesn’t stand still, so you should always be trying to move forward in your relationship.

The Notebook


“So it’s not gonna be easy. It’s gonna be really hard. We’re gonna have to work at this every day, but I want to do that because I want you.”

Sometimes we do have to fight for the things we love. No, It won’t be easy -it might even be very difficult. But you know what they say; only the best things in life are worth fighting for.That includes your long distance relationship!
