You don't have much leeway for missteps and mistakes in a long-distance relationship. Its foundation is built with bricks, but its roof, with straw. If you let your emotions dictate where the Big Bad Wolf blows next, he'll end up blowing your house down. A house with no shelter isn't a safe place anymore. How will you shield yourselves from the wind and the rain, from the heat and the cold? Life isn't 23 degrees with a good measure of sunlight, and the occasional sea-breeze, all-year round.
