30 best romantic long-distance relationship quotes

Long-distance relationships are hard to manage, but it is also said that distance makes your love stronger. “Absence makes the heart grow fonder”, this has been the mantra of long-distance relationships, but in every distant relationship there comes a point when you wonder if all that is worth it. You struggle between justifying the relationship and finding faults in it. With each passing day, it becomes harder to fill the gap between the physical distance and the emotional connection. A long-distance relationship depends on how powerful your connection with the other person is. Here are a few long-distance love quotes that will resonate with your relationship.

Love quote by Roger de Bussy-Rabutin

About long-distance relationships, Roger de Bussy-Rabutin says:

"Absence is to love as wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great."

This quote explains long-distance relationships perfectly well. If your love is strong enough, it will only be kindled by the distance that would otherwise kill any small, feeble love.

Quote about long distance by Jonathan Safran Foer

This heart-touching quote goes as:

“I imagine a line, a white line, painted on the sand and on the ocean, from me to you."

Everyone has their own way of coping with the distance between them and their loved ones. Some imagine a line, some a thread, that keeps them connected. True love will always find its way home.

From the famous love story writer Nicholas Sparks

Even the romance writer has something to say about love:

“I know we loved each other, but distance can do strange things to people and before I was willing to tell you about it, I wanted to be certain that it would last.”

A long-distance relationship can make you be sure of your own feelings and of the other’s as well. If you can still be in love when far apart, you have got something going on.

Heraline on long distance

Heraline says you can still be in love despite the distance:

“You're too far for my hands to hold you, but too near for my heart to love you.”

Distance doesn’t matter when the people you love live in your heart. This quote explains that despite the longing for touching them, there is still a feeling of satisfaction because they are with you in your heart.

What Anna Agoncillo says about love

If they are worth the long-distance love:

“If you found that one person who is really worth the sacrifices, pain, and hardships then your efforts will not go to waste.”

If you think the person you love is worth all the effort and time you are putting in for them in your long-distance relationship, then all your efforts will pay off in the end when you are reunited with your loved one.

Long-distance relationship quote by Meghan Daum

Are you strong enough for love?

"Contrary to what the cynics say, distance is not for the fearful; it's for the bold. It's for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love."

Love in long-distance relationships will never survive if your heart is weak. It takes a lot more than just the declaration of love for a relationship to survive the test of time and distance.

From the very famous Khalil Gibran

The very famous writer says this about love:

"And ever has it been known that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation."

This quote by Khalil Gibran says that love only realises its depth when it is tested by separation. It is only when you are in a long-distance relationship that you know how deep is your love for them and theirs for you.

Love quote by Andrew Davidson

If you are in love, you are never far away.

"If you listen to the wind very carefully, you'll be able to hear me whisper my love for you."

This quote truly expresses the power of love. Even when you are far apart, you can feel the tremors of other hearts, and even when you are in a long-distance relationship, you can still feel each other’s love.

What A.A. Milne says about long-distance relationships

Lucky in love.

"How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard?"

Not everyone has someone who can make leaving hard. If you find it easy to leave, it shows that there is not enough love to hold you back. But if you have that someone, you are lucky. You will always have a place where you will be willing to come back to.

Stated anonymously

Long-distance relationships need will and commitment.

"Waiting does not bother me, nor does the distance that is cropping up between us. All I want is a true commitment and to know that your heart will never change."

If your heart is true to your commitment of love, then the distance should not bother you. If your love is strong, then nothing will matter, not even the long distance between you.

What Alcibiades says about love

Absence will make you cherish the presence.

"As contraries are known by contraries, so is the delight of presence best known by the torments of absence."

This quote tells you that only after missing each other, you will realise the delight of each other’s presence. Only the distance will tell you how important being together is for you.

Gilbert Parker on long-distance relationships

True love is beyond any boundary.

"Love knows no distance; it hath no continent; its eyes are for the stars."

Love is not affected by the distance, so no continent can break true love. A heart full of true love can feel its other half even among the stars. It is beyond any boundary, beyond any distance and test.

Livius Besski's quote on long-distance relationships

Long-distance relationships could mean waiting for a long time.

"It’s not the distance that’s the enemy, but the endless time I have to wait to hold you in my arms."

According to this quote, distance doesn’t matter when you are in love. It is the restlessness of separation that makes you go weak. The long wait for being close to the one you love makes long-distance relationships harder.

Smart saying by Albert Einstein

Even Einstein knows that distance is an illusion when in love.

"Our separation of each other is an optical illusion of consciousness."

In the word of Einstein, distance is just an optical illusion. Distance is in your eyes, in your mind. In your heart, you are always together and nothing matters if you are in love, not even the long distance between you two.

From Richard Bach

Distance can't separate you.

“Can miles truly separate you from friends? If you want to be with someone you love, aren’t you already there?”

This quote states the truth so rightly. When you are in love, you are always together in your heart. Distance cannot separate two people who truly love each other.

What someone said anonymously about long-distance relationships

Countdowns are always easier.

"Missing someone gets easier everyday because even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will."

The countdown of the days when you will see your beloved again makes the distance and the wait easier. It makes you breathless, the wait. Just keep counting the days until you can see your loved ones again and hold them in your arms.

The writer Anamika Mishra's view on love

Writers have their own way of coping with long distance.

“Maybe it's a good idea to write something about you in my book... At least then, there will be a place where we will meet everyday... and be together forever!”

According to the quote, imagination always keeps you together. Like writers who can write about their love and be the characters of a story where they can meet everyday and even live together happily ever after.

By Vironika Tugaleva

Trust is the essence of a long-distance relationship.

“Once trust is built, distance cannot kill it. Time and space alone cannot destroy authentic connection.”

Trust is not easy to destroy. If you have faith in your love, no time or distance can affect the connection that your heart has with your beloved. Trust keeps love strong regardless of the distance, time and tests.

Donna Lynn Hope says

The more you miss someone, the deeper you fall in love.

“I found that I missed him the more he was absent from my life, and the more I missed him, the more I loved him.”

As per the quote, when you are apart, you miss the person you love. Long-distance relationships make you realise the value of your beloved. The more you miss someone, the deeper and strong your love grows.

Laura Anderson Kurk's quote on long-distance relationships

Imagine the connection.

“In my mind, I saw a string stretching from Henry’s heart at Quiet Waters to my heart. It was taut and it vibrated with Henry’s worries and fears and I felt them all. Deeply. I felt them all.”

In this quote, the writer explains how her true love kept her connected to her beloved. Despite the long distance, she could feel all his worries and concerns. You are never apart when you are in love, as a line always keep you connected to each other.

From an anonymous person

Hope can always keep you going.

“The thought of being with you tomorrow, gives me the strength to get through today.”

In long-distance relationships, one thing that takes you through the day is the thought of seeing the one you love. It gives you strength to cope with the miles between you.


Love is spiritual as well.

“Long distance relationships are living proof that love is not just physical. I can feel you next to me even when you’re thousands of miles away.”

True love doesn’t need physical presence to survive. You can always feel the bond even when you are not together. Long-distance relationships don’t matter when your heart is true to your love.

Doug Fetherling's view on love

A post shared by Andie Lee (@andie_yj) on

Long distance doesn't mean being alone, it means waiting to be together.

“Your absence has not taught me how to be alone; it has merely shown me that when together we cast a single shadow on the wall.”

Absence doesn't teach you how to live alone. It teaches you that you are one, that your heart and soul are united. Despite the long distance between you, you are still together.


True love is soulful.

“Hearing your voice is far better than you touching me. Because even though I yearn for your skin to touch mine, it is your voice that touches my soul.”

The quote says that true love is also reflected in the voice and not just in actions. The truth in the voice is what touches the soul and shows true love. If you can feel it in the voice and the way they say your name, you have something going on for a lifetime.

Steve Maraboli on long-distance relationships

True love can withstand any test.

“I believe in the immeasurable power of love; that true love can endure any circumstance and reach across any distance.”

The quote rightly states that true love is stronger than the doubts you get when you are far apart. It can withstand the test of time and distance. No circumstance can diminish true love and the heart that holds it.

What Senora Roy says about love

You are always together in love.

“Some people can be so close to you even if physically far, they walk with you and stay near in every moment of your life.”

When you are in love and you carry people in your heart, distance doesn't matter. True love will always make you feel like they are around you, even when they are not. This is because of the bond that you share.

Ramayana on long distance

It's even in history.

“Blow ‘o wind to where my loved one is. Touch him and come touch me soon. I’ll feel his gentle touch through you and meet his beauty in the moon. These things are much for the one who loves. One can live by them alone: that he and I breathe the same air and that the earth we tread is one.”

Long-distance relationships didn’t exist in the time of Ramayana, but this quote was said by the Goddess Sita when she was far away from Lord Rama. It explains excellently the beauty of love. Her heart was bonded to Lord Rama's heart and in such a way that she could feel him in the wind that blew past her and see his face in the moon he was looking at.

What Rashida Rowe has to say

They are always in your heart.

“When I don’t see you, I don’t miss you , I just place my hand over my heart and it's there I will find you, because even though you are out of my sight, you will never be out of my heart.”

Distance doesn’t mean you are not together, it just means you can't see each other. You are always in each other’s hearts.

From Kay Knudsen

Love keeps you warm inside.

“Love is missing someone when you’re apart, but somehow feeling warm inside because you’re close in the heart.”

In a long-distance relationship, you will miss each other. It is natural, but the warmth of true love will always make you feel fuzzy because you are right in each other’s heart.

According to an anonymous person

Missing someone means you are alive.

“I like the sound of your voice even if it’s from a thousand miles away. It keeps me going. It tells me I’m still alive. I miss you.”

Hearing that the one you love truly loves gives you energy and desire to stay alive. The hope of seeing them takes you through the day.

A few last words

No matter the long distance that has been put between the two of you, if your love is strong enough to endure the distance, it will only grow even stronger with time. You will be able to feel the connection and a tug at your heart even in a long-distance relationship. That warm and fuzzy feeling will stay inside you, no matter how far you are. Everyone travels the distance in their own way. When you are in love, yet so far apart, it hurts so much that giving up seems easier that bearing the pain. But is that special person worth it? Is that person worth the effort and pain you re being put through? Is that person worth the distance you are covering everyday for them? If your answer is yes, then stay strong. In the end, it will be worth all the effort you have put in and every amount of pain you have been through, and you will be glad that you stayed in love even when you were so far apart.
