Before we begin to focus on the ways to make a long distance relationship last long, let us please realize that a long distance relationship is not easy. It never is.
If you are in one, you will definitely face challenges but if you truly love your partner and want to make your relationship work, you really can.
There are very few long distance relationships that succeed. Some just break off in a month or two and the reasons for it are quite obvious.
Want to make your one last long? Let’s look at some of the most effective ways to make it work
With a long distance relationship, you will obviously not be able to meet your partner frequently. In such a situation, you must maintain strong communication with your partner. No relationship exists in the absence of communication. Sure you will have other commitments as well, but make time to communicate.
Know each other’s schedule
Staying in two different cities, your routine will be different from that of your partner. Make sure you and your partner share your next day’s schedule with each other. This way you two can find out a common free time to talk to each other. If not, you will at least know what your partner is busy with. This keeps you from wondering where your partner has disappeared. There can be nothing more annoying than not knowing where your partner is. So make sure to share your schedules with each other.
Be loyal and honest
Hiding things from your partner thinking that he/she will never find out what you did or are doing is just not acceptable. You yourself will feel guilty after a period of time. Share all your feelings with your partner. It can so happen that once you travel to a new place, you might require time for yourself to settle in a new place and adjust. Be sure to communicate this to your partner. Some people start avoiding their partners. Do not do this. Whatever you feel, make sure to tell your partner.
Trust each other
It is the most important thing. There are many who get possessive and insecure when their partners are not around. This can harm a relationship beyond repair. You have to trust each other. Doubting your partner even after he/she shares things and informs you about the whereabouts is an absolute no.
Make it a thing to at least meet once in two months. Either visit each other or plan a short trip. You can also make surprise visits. There can be nothing more comforting and sweet than this. If at times, you get too worked up with work and find no time to visit each other, send gifts. That too works.
Keep the romance and sexy talk alive
After having a tiring day, sit and have a romantic and sexy talk with your partner. This will make both of you happy. Being in a long distance relationship will definitely put your physical intimacy on hold. Don’t let that come in your way. You can have a nice romantic talk or dirty talk to keep the ‘spark’ alive.
Give space and be understanding
While communication is very important, too much of talking can come in the way of your independent life as well. Plus, expecting your partner to talk to you constantly also isn’t fair. This might just lead to the two of you arguing and quarrelling.
Just because a long distance relationship is difficult doesn’t mean it is not workable. These effective ways can go a long way in helping you to maintain your long distance relationship.
