Long-distance relationships are not always bubbles and sparkles. Sometimes, they require more effort trying to make them work. This doesn’t mean that keeping a long-distance relationship is an uphill task, it mostly depends on proper communication among other factors.
Lockdown or not, knowing how best to deal with your partner and being happy in your long- distance relationship is essential to having a healthy relationship. We have put together some tips to help you deal with the distance, be happy, and have a beautiful relationship.
Maintain your long-distance relationship with these tips…
#1. Video call each other daily
Thanks to technology, you can see each other frequently. Imagine the era of long-distance relationships without video calls. How would you communicate? Letters? Dear lord! Although this doesn’t take the place of physical and direct contact, it comes close. Spending time daily on a video call deepens your bond and helps you familiarize. After all, they say out-of-sight is out-of-mind.
#2. Be secure
A partner who calls every minute to check in can begin to look desperate and clingy. Insecurity is a big relationship killer that should be avoided. The very essence of communicating is to build confidence, so there has to be trust between the couple or it simply won’t work. Remember, you also need to be busy chasing your goals.
#3. Plan a date
Distance shouldn’t be a barrier when it comes to planning dates in long-distance relationships. Thanks to technology, you can have special date nights as close to what you would have in person. It could be a movie night or playing a multiplayer online game. Whatever it is, spend quality time together. It builds a strong relationship.
#4. Texting romantically
Pick up the phone and text them what you’d really love to do with them (like a boat cruise). Basically, say something nice and romantic to have your partner grinning from ear-to-ear. This could be inspired by that RomCom movie you drool over, a novel, an irresistible poetry, or a reverie of past experiences you both have had.
#5. Make plans for a reunion
Going somewhere new together and making beautiful memories could strengthen your relationship, so why not plan to make this happen? It could be as simple as a visit, or a more elaborate reunion like a planned vacation. This move could breathe a new type of excitement into your relationship because there’ll be something you’re both desperately looking forward to.
#6. Know your limits
In as much as a high level of transparency is advised in long-distance relationships, you should know your boundaries. Not every “gist” has to be told. On the other hand, do let your partner in on your deal breakers and what you can or cannot accept. This prevents future problems as one cannot feign ignorance of your limits.
Hey! Look on the bright side: they say absence makes the heart grow fonder. So time away from each other makes you value your partner even more and vice versa. Always remember your partner is worth the wait.
