What is Needed In A Long Distance Relationship

When the honeymoon period ends, and the real relationship begins, long distance relationships can be extremely difficult to maintain. However, they also hold several benefits that are not present in most types of relationships, as well as some unique challenges that must be overcome in order to keep the relationship healthy and happy. In this article, we will discuss the importance of having a long distance relationship, which will hopefully help you make an informed decision when choosing whether or not to pursue such a relationship with your partner.

Communication

Have an honest and open discussion with your partner about how you can communicate with each other while apart. For example, you could agree to text or call each other on a certain day of every week. You’ll be surprised at how much can be said in a short five-minute conversation. As long as both partners are committed to maintaining an active dialogue, talking every day doesn’t have to be unrealistic. (In fact, if you can do it for your boss, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t do it for your loved one.)

When Will We See Each Other? If it makes sense for both of you to live near each other, figure out when will be best for seeing each other—once a month? Once every two months? Once a year? Agreeing on a schedule that works best for both of you is crucial. Don’t let your long distance relationship suffer because one person wants to see their partner more often than the other does. Be realistic about how much time and money you can dedicate to your relationship, and stick with those limits as much as possible.

Trust

If you’re not in person with your significant other, communication can be more difficult. You have to trust that they are saying what they mean and aren’t being two-faced. That can be tough if you don’t have much trust built up yet! If you know someone who has been through a long distance relationship, it might help to talk to them about their experience; they could offer advice on how to get through it. It also helps to remember that sometimes, lack of communication is just a symptom of missing each other

. It doesn’t necessarily mean there is anything wrong or that one person is lying. But because it’s hard to read body language and facial expressions over text or email, you should try your best to be as clear as possible when communicating with your partner.

Positive mental attitude

The most important thing is to keep your perspective in check and stay positive. LDRs can be hard at times, but if you’re negative it will only make things worse. Instead, focus on what’s great about your relationship—you should be thankful that you get to see each other frequently instead of dwelling on how far apart you are. Remember: good things come to those who wait! And also remember that time spent apart means time for both of you to work on yourselves individually. 

Don’t feel bad for needing space or needing time alone. It’s healthy! Take advantage of being away from one another and work towards achieving your goals—it will benefit both of you when you reunite later on down the road. Most importantly, have fun with it! Keep in mind that distance doesn’t define love; if anything, it helps put things into perspective and strengthens relationships because couples need to learn how to deal with obstacles as they arise. 

You might not be able to physically touch each other right now, but don’t let that stop you from expressing your love through calls, texts and emails.

Humor

If you two are going to be apart, you’ll need to find ways to make your long distance relationship fun and exciting. The key is communication and knowing that you want each other just as much as you did when you were last together. Laughing with your partner can go a long way in keeping them warm at night while they are alone on their side of town. Send each other funny videos or pictures over text or email.

 You could even plan a surprise date for when you see one another again. It doesn’t have to be elaborate—just something special that will remind both of you why it was worth it to stay committed while apart.

 A couple’s guide to making a long-distance relationship work: (1) Talk often. Have real conversations about what you like and don’t like, instead of communicating through emails and texts all day. (2) See each other face-to-face whenever possible. This can mean planning frequent trips home from college for summer break or winter break (and perhaps some spring break), finding affordable flights back home during school breaks, etc. (3) Be creative with dates!

Aloha Spirit

If you’re in a long distance relationship, you’ve probably experienced some form of loneliness. If you’re lucky, your partner is able to visit on occasion and provide you with temporary relief. However, if your partner doesn’t live close by or he/she isn’t able to visit much due to a busy schedule, then it can be difficult staying connected with them. Fortunately, there are several ways to maintain a strong connection with your partner when you don’t have physical contact every day. 

Here are three ways that will help:

 1. Schedule regular phone calls. 

You might not get to see each other for months at a time, but you can still hear each other’s voices regularly through phone calls. This helps build intimacy and closeness even when there aren’t any physical displays of affection available.

 2. Send letters and postcards. While emails and text messages are efficient ways to communicate, they lack the personal touch of handwritten notes. Sending letters and postcards is an inexpensive way to stay connected while also giving your loved one something tangible to hold onto.

 3. Watch movies together online via Skype or FaceTime video chat services such as Skype and FaceTime allow you to share videos with one another from across town or across oceans!
