The Challenges of a Long-Distance Relationship

In 2014 we carried out a survey on couples who were in a Long-Distance Relationship. 1,000 people were interviewed. The results found that 1 in 7 relationships were long-distance.

KIIROO and SWNS recently collaborated and created a new survey on long-distance relationships. 1,000 Americans who are currently in a long-distance relationship, or have been in one, were surveyed.

The results were eye-opening. This research showed that these relationships have a 58 percent success rate. It also revealed that technology and social media play a major role for long-distance couples.

The average long-distance couple will send each other 343 texts every week. While video chatting and phone calls take up about 8 hours a week. Respondents also feel that living atleast a 132 miles away is considered as long distance. 

But, there are challenges to being in this type of relationship. 66 percent feel that the lack of physical intimacy is very challenging. Despite the availability of different new media technologies, there is still a challenge for couples to stay in touch.

24 percent of the respondents have difficulty in communicating because of their difference of opinion on the mode of communication. This certainly affects the way they make their partner feel and feel loved.

Take a look at the results below:

However, there is an upside. Over half of respondents said that being apart or that time apart helped them feel close to each other.

But how do we, KIIROO, play a role in making long-distance relationships work? Well, our interactive pleasure products (teledildonics/sex tech products) make it possible to be intimate from any distance. Physical affection is clearly very important in maintaining relationships. The video summarises the findings below.
