Why Long-Distance Relationships Are Usually Doomed

Dr. Ali Binazir is a long-time friend who has written an incredible book for smart, strong, successful women called “The Tao of Dating”. But more importantly, the thing I like best about Ali is that he’s a true intellect. He’s endlessly curious and a sponge for information, and while this doesn’t always make him the best businessman, it generally makes him one of the more interesting people in the room. Not only that, but Ali is also a helluva writer, with a prose style that is a little more funny and discursive than my own, which is why I appreciate it when he shares his material on Facebook.

I wish I’d written this one myself, but it feels good knowing that there are other people out there doing great work that I can share with you.

Sure enough, I got this little bit of gold in my newsfeed a few weeks ago. It’s a letter from a young woman who is involved in a two-year, tumultuous, long-distance relationship who is desperately trying to put Humpty Dumpty back together again.

Ali responds, at length, like a champ, and discusses all sorts of topics under the sun: young love, attachment styles, and long-distance non-relationships. I’d say that I’d wish I’d written this one myself, but it feels good knowing that there are other people out there doing great work that I can share with you.
