This is how much money long-distance relationships spend on travel

Women are 27% more likely to cite the financial strain of traveling as a reason they’re relationship ended.

IRL relationships are expensive but long-distance ones are on another level, especially in traveling to see their partner. The survey by onlinedoctor.superdrug.com shows that distance doesn’t always make the heart fonder but being far away doesn’t mean your relationship can't work.

In this project, they asked 1,200 individuals in Europe and the U.S. about their experiences in long-distance relationships. Our findings explore the detail of making things work while living apart, from affording travel expenses to getting hot and heavy over the phone. Whether you’re doing long distance currently or are simply wondering if it might be possible with your partner, you won’t want to miss what we found out

Here are some of the findings:

  • Women are 27% more likely to cite the financial strain of traveling as a reason they're relationship ended
  • Almost half of all long-distance couples travel by car to see their S.O.'s and 40% of couples fly 
  • The Price of Love-Couples who survived long-distance spent 2x as much money on traveling to see each other than couples who later broke up 

Methodology
They collected survey data from 1,199 respondents in Europe and the U.S. The average age of respondents was 34 with a standard deviation of 12. Fifty-two percent of respondents identified as male, while 48 percent identified as female. The survey data for Europeans were weighted for population. Our data was cleaned for outliers. 

Respondents who answered they had been in a long-distance relationship were asked if they were: currently in a long-distance relationship, if they were in a long-distance relationship that was no longer long distance, or if they had been in a long-distance relationship that ended. The first option was deemed as successful, the third as failed, and the second option showed in our assets as is. We decided this as our methodology because the general goal of long-term relationships should be to reunite.
