I Focus More on My Career
We've all seen relationships where one person focuses on their career and the other becomes resentful. Of course, not many people mean to do this at the expense of their partner and relationship, but it often happens organically. In a long-distance relationship, that doesn't happen. I feel no guilt whenever I decide to stay late at work, and my evenings and weekends are free to plan networking meetings and tackle big projects if I need to.
