How much do you actually believe that long distance relationships work?
If you’ve ever been in a relationship where your significant other is not close by, then you can relate to the challenges most people face while attempting to make the relationship work. Let me go on record by saying: “It isn’t easy, but it doesn’t have to be hard either.”
Here are some tips on how to help make long-distance relationships work:
- Look at old photos or videos of your time spent with him/her. If your time zones are too complicated to talk face to face, remember the happy times. This will remind you of your time spent together.
- Call or video message him/her. There are so many ways to stay connected with loved ones these days. Use social media to communicate and commit to seeing each other more often.
- Send packages. What better way to show someone you love that you care, than to send them a nice package? He/she is going to love it! Send items that will remind him/her of you or items that will make him/her smile. The more thought you put into it, the more he/she will see that you care.
- Visit each other. If long-distance seems too hard, why not make the effort to see him/her? Make a plan to visit during the holidays or go on vacation to see him/her. This will really prove that you want to make the relationship work even though you’re far from each other.
The key component in each of these points is communication. Communication is the foundation of making long-distance relationships work. Each partner has to be open with expressing his/her feelings and be able to understand the difficulties of not being with each other right away. Nothing is harder than being away from the one that we love, but there are little things we can do to make the time away from each other go faster.
