Nicole Scherzinger and lewis Hamilton may have had their ups and downs, but there's no denying that the X Factor judge and the F1 driver know how to make a long distance relationship work - after all, it's been four years!
Nicole readily admitted that LDR's are hard work recently, but explained that love makes it all worthwhile:
“I wouldn’t wish a long-distance relationship on anyone, Lewis would say the same. But if it’s worth it, you fight for it. We try to see each other as much as possible.”
“Every relationship has its things and you work it out. We made it last for four years so far, so it definitely makes things interesting and challenging.“
Sounds good to us - after all, there are plenty of perks to a long distance relationship... not least of all the feeling of excitement you get when you see your other half after spending time apart.
If a couple are strong enough to make an LDR work, the benefits are huge. There's the quality over quantity factor - every single time you see each other, you'll make every second count. Which sets you on the path to emotional happiness.
And, of course, communication is improved - when you have to make the effort to text, call or message one another on a regular basis, you'll find that communication becomes a doddle. After all, how many can say they can natter away to their boyfriend on the phone for as long as they do their best gal pal?
Perhaps most importantly - you'll discover if you can make it work quicker than most couples. The added pressure of working through things from so far apart can make or break a couple; fingers crossed it makes yours!
