How to Make a Long Distance Relationship Work
Long distance relationships can be challenging and difficult sometimes, but there are definitely ways to make them work. If you are in a long distance relationship and want to keep the fire in your relationship alive and well, you’d be wise to pay attention to these 4 tips.
Send Your Partner Something Special
When you live close to or with your partner, you receive certain reminders that you are not alone all of the time. Maybe it’s the scent of their shirt? Maybe it’s a gift they gave you, such as, a ring or necklace that you wear all of the time? When you aren’t with them, neither of you get these benefits. To make up for that send them something of yours that you want them to have in order to remind them of you.
Share Plenty of Photos
It may feel odd to continually send your long distance love new photos of you but, the truth is, they need them. Don’t just send them one picture and call it a day. Be sure that you share plenty of pictures on an ongoing basis so they know you care. It will also help them to feel closer to you, because they get to see you as you are at any given moment.
Life is full of work, and it’s hard to have fun with one another when you are so far away. This can be remedied by playing games online with each other or playing games on the phone. A fun phone game can be a trivia game where questions are asked and answered for points, and online games can include anything from morphing’s to board games that have been digitized. Be creative and have fun!
All of the space and time away from your lover can put a wall up between the two of you. One of the best things you can do is to stay in touch and talk with one another. Communicate your feelings about each other, how your day went, and talk about all of the things you might normally talk about to someone who is with you on a daily basis.
While long distance relationships do provide a challenge, difficulties can be overcome by taking the time to remind each other that you are real and present. Get creative, and have fun!
