I agree with you besides this. If you look at most IRL relationships, most do not last that long nowadays as well. I myself have seen the majority of my friends go through as many IRL relationships as I have long distance.

Long distance is harder, but the success rate is much closer to IRL nowadays with how advanced the internet has become.
