Was on Facebook going through my feed and a friend of mine asked a question if Long distance relationships do work . So i decided on writing and dropping a little tip for distance relationship .
Long distance relationships: Make ’em work!
Long distance relationship happens a lot , some unplanned for while some originated from distance initially . I know of lots of people who cant handle distance . Should i say its the Ladies that find it a little difficult to handle it ??? Long distance relationships are definitely risky, and if you are unfortunate enough to be far away from a significant other, the prospect of potentially ruining your relationship can seem daunting. However, long distance relationships aren’t so difficult that they’re impossible. Simple adjustments to your attitude and lifestyle can help you keep that loved one in your life.
Trying to be on the positive side , I would give 5 tips to make it work .
USE THE PHONE !!
I do not know why some people still find it hard to call . Like seriously , it gets me worried . A friend of mine has a boyfriend who hardly calls her and now the relationship has to be long-distance due to his job . So you can imagine that the relationship has a slim chance of working .
Talking a lot most times help fill the void of distance . It even helps to make bond stronger . There are lots of free and cheap means to call . So there is no excuse .
it’s one of the most important things you can do to make a long distance relationship work
USE OTHER MEANS OF COMMUNICATION.
Technology has made life easier . There are lots of means of communicating with each other to fill the void of each others presence.. You can send text messages , IM , social media chats etc. My favourite is skype .
“Set aside a certain time, every day, to connect with each other.”
With such busy lives and so many obligations pulling at you from all different directions, it’s easy to neglect communicating in a long distance relationship. Using other modes of communication will keep you and your partner close even though you’re technically far away from each other.
DON’T LET THE ROMANCE DIE , KEEP IT ALIVE !!!!
One thing people lack is maintenance . Yes you both make commitments but do you maintain it ?????. Try as much as possible to keep communication as often as possible . Like i will always say
NO ONE IS EVER TOO BUSY TO KEEP IN TOUCH EVERYDAY IF HE/SHE REALLY MEANS A THING TO YOU – Eva
You might not see each other everyday but keep the love and the flame burning . You could send surprise gifts , write love letters , record a song and mail it (easy these days through some karoke apps .) you can even send a surprise lunch to your love at work. There are millions of ways to make the flame burn harder , its up to you to choose .
It makes him /her feel wanted and loved and also special.
AN EVEN-TRIP EXCHANGE IS NOT A BAD IDEA!!
I actually love this idea. It brings fun and adventure into th relationship . There are some spontaneous and unplanned things we do all for love (if you think its worth it ). No matter how far you both are from each other , there can be an even-trip exchange.It makes it reciprocal . relationship cannot thrive if the only thing you have is the phone call. You need to see each other up close and personal every chance you get. The key here is to set up some rules about frequency of visits and stick to them. Consistency can help a long-distance relationship survive.
Hell yes !!!!. Dont bring in negative energy int o the relationship, it just makes thing worse.Staying positive and not focusing on the negative aspects of a long-distance relationship is essential to keeping your relationship blooming.
Use the opportunity of personal time to pursue your interests and hobbies as well as your career objectives. As long as you see the long-distance relationship as a temporary state, you will keep your chin up and transmit that feeling of security and happiness to your partner too.
Glad you made it to the end of the post .But please try and put all tips given above to practice and expect things to be better . All in all , the most important ingredient for making it work is your commitment , love and trust .
