HomeLong Distance Relationship QuestionsHow can I tell my family that my long-distance relationship is serious?
Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

My family is very traditional and they don't understand why I would want to be in a long-distance relationship. They keep asking me when I'm going to find a "real" relationship and it's starting to get on my nerves. How can I make them see that this is a serious relationship and not just a phase?

One way you can try and make your family see that your long-distance relationship is serious is by introducing them to your partner. If they are able to meet him or her, they will be able to see that this is a real person with real feelings for you. Additionally, you can tell them about your plans for the future and how you intend to make the relationship work despite the distance. Finally, try to be patient with them and understand that they may not be able to accept your relationship right away. It might take some time but eventually, they will come around.
