It is not easy to handle any relationship.Whether it is a close relation or distance. Many people believe that long distance relationships are never going to work out. Your family may discourage it, and some of your best friends may advise you not to take it too seriously, in case you get your heart broken.
It is said that the bond of relationships is fragile and if it breaks it becomes difficult to rejoin. It is important, therefore, that you play well and handle your relationships well. This thing becomes even more important in long distance relationship.
There are no synergies between the partners with no year round meeting. Therefore, due to greater distances and more gaps, sours and distances start to occur. Long distance relationships may be tough but they have their own surprises too.
To keep your love alive and strong, here are some tips to make your long distance relationship work:
Avoid excessive communication
It is not necessary for you to communicate 12 hours a day to make your bond stronger. Many of them think that they need to compensate for the distance by doing so. It is not true. It might only make things worse. Soon you would get tired of “loving.”
It is unwise to be overly “sticky” and possessive. Always remember “less is more”. It’s really about teasing at the right moments and tugging at the right spots.
Dedication for each other
There should be mutual interactions and dedication for each other. If the coordination of these two things is good then long distance relationships run more closely than the relationships played out and are good.
Instead of thinking that this long distance relationship is pulling you two apart, you should believe that through this experience, the both of you will be bound together even stronger.
Set some rules for management of expectations
Both of you need to be clear about your expectation from each other during this long distance relationship. Set some ground rules so that none of you will do things that will take the other party upset.
It’s better to be open with each other about all these things.
Changing your lifestyle for your partner
If you change your life style a bit for your partner and you always stay in touch with each other, then this relationship will remain unbreakable. Make a video call or phone having a light-hearted conversation. Let your partner feels that you are worried and cared for him.
Try to update your partner on your life and its happenings, send each other pictures, audio clips and short videos from time to time. By putting in this kind of effort, you make the other person feel loved and attended to.
Keep in mind that after a long gap, your relationship may be in danger, memories may be blurred, so stay in regular touch.
It is not necessarily to always talk about your relationship and its future. Keep the flames burning by teasing each other with sexual innuendos and provocative talks. Sexual desire is like a glue that keeps both parties from drifting apart.
Be sure not to talk about such things or topics that will bother your partner. But understand that in long distance relationships you have to find an excuse to be in touch with your partner.
Avoiding extreme situations
What matters most in a long distance relationship is the belief. If you already know that going to the club or for drink with your group of friends late night will displease your partner, inform him before only. You need to recognize the dangers before entering into the situation. Don’t just listen to your heart. Listen to your mind too.
Even if your partner is away from you do not hide anything from him. Tell him everything openly. By doing this, the confidence of your partner will remain in you and secondly, the burden of your heart will be lighter.
Listen to your partner
What sometimes happens is that your partner wants you to listen to him. That’s why you should listen to your partner, even if it does not matter. Do not let your partner feel at all that you are ignoring him.
Do not enter into the personal space
Any relationship requires a little open breath. Even though you are in relation, but it is important to understand that every relationship demands a little privacy. So give your partner some freedom too. Do not worry too much.
Do not think that he is so far away from me or what I am going to do. By doing this you are spying your partner in a way that is not good for your relationship.
- Respecting one another
There should be respect for each other and this quality is a strong foundation for every kind of relationship.
Knowing each other schedules
It’s helpful to know when the other person is busy and when he/she is free, so that you can drop a text or make a call at the right time. You wouldn’t want to disturb your partner when he/she is in the middle of class or halfway through a business meeting.
Know the small and big events that are taking place or will take place in each other’s life e.g. college mid-terms and exams, important business trips and meetings, job interviews and etc. This is especially essential when the both of you are living in different time zones.
You need to inject positive energy into the long distance relationship to keep it alive. The waiting can be painful and you can sometimes feel lonely but you need to remind yourself that the fruits at the end will be sweet as heaven.
One good trick to staying positive is to be grateful all the time. Be thankful that you have someone to love, someone who also loves you back. Be thankful for the little things, like the hand-made letter that arrived safely in your mailbox the other day. Be thankful for each other’s health and safety.
Meet within specific time intervals
Definitely get the time to meet in at least 3 or 4 months. If you still do not have thing possible then you can definitely meet once a year. For this, you can also plan a vacation to take 1 or 2 weeks for vacation. Make special offers to your partner. Plan a surprise for your partner.
Long Distance Relationships have the courage to fight all kinds of difficulties and distances. A positive thinking is formed. Long distance relationship is higher than physical relationships, because the relationship which has not seen each other for years and years, without ticking, understand that they will be tired even further as the relationship is connected through emotional connect. It increases devotion for each other.
