Long Distance Relationship
In this post, we share our advice, guides and tips to survive in a long distance relationship.
A long distance relationship can be a hard and painful relationship, but can be a very strong and rewarding relationship if you make it through the hard parts.
A long distance relationship is not an easy relationship. Furthermore, there is the distance between you and your partner. For example, you may live in the opposite part of the world and you don’t know what is really happening to him or her away from you.
A long distance relationship can also be the best love story because this type of relationship is measured in how you can love, trust, respect and support each other even if you are not physically together. Instead of thinking of the hardship of being in a long distance relationship, it is much better to think that someday soon both of you will be bound together and be stronger in your love to each other.
Here are some tips on how to succeed in a long distance relationship:
SHOW YOUR LOVE FOR YOUR PARTNER
Communication is one of the best ways to show your partner how deeply you are in love with him or her. Firstly, talk daily about your plans and activities. Secondly, discuss the good and bad things happening in your life. Talk about your future. Don’t forget to greet your partner good morning or good night. Tell your partner often that you love him or her.
Show your partner that he or she belongs in your priority. Even if you are busy, make sure that you have time to talk to him or her. Don’t miss important dates like your anniversary or their birthday.
TRUST YOUR PARTNER
Trust and being trustworthy are the most important things in a relationship, especially in a long distance relationship. Remember this, “Trust is like a vase. Once it is broken, you can fix it, but the vase will never be the same again.”Trust your partner and let them do things. If you do enjoy things, be with family and friends, don’t go in a place where there is temptation. Stay away from temptation. You know that you are in a relationship. Don’t pit yourself in a complicated situation like going to a bar or club with other groups to drink until late at night. Don’t make your partner worried, suspicious, and of course upset because you are putting your partner in a position where he or she has no power to protect you. It is much better to visit your family by enjoying and relaxing having dinner with them. Also, going out, with permission, with a very close friend that your partner knows is OK. Stay honest to each other. Tell him or her about your fears, insecurity, jealousy, and anything else bothering you. Let your partner help you and give you the support that you need.
RESPECT YOUR PARTNER
Don’t make a decision by yourself, especially if your plan has an effect on your relationship. Always remember he or she is your partner. For example, if you have a plan, discuss it, talk about it and work for it. Always, be sensitive to his or her feelings.
Be faithful to your partner as it is the best way how to show your respect in you partner. This is the biggest aspect how a relationship grows into forever.
SHOW YOUR SUPPORT
Show all your support in your partner, even if you are not physically together. Help your partner to lessen the loneliness of being away from each other. Send pictures talking about funny and happy things you made together. You need to know what are your partner’s weaknesses and strong points. Always be there when your partner needs to talk to someone. Work together in planning the goals that you want to achieve in your relationship. Work toward being reunited and never apart again.
Always remember that the success of a long distance relationship is not from the effort of only one. The success comes from the effort of both you and your partner together. Remember, real love is not afraid to all test of life. Be strong and keep praying.
