Relationships are blessings that life endows upon us. There is madness, euphoria in relationships. It is mixed in the truest sense and charm of relationships. All kinds of relationships are precious. In addition, romantic relationships add a special sparkle in our lives, giving us the strength to face the world and live for the other half.
However, when relationships become a long distance one, it is harder to maintain due to the loss of intimacy and the continuous presence of the other half. The desire for the other half, the craving becomes too much for one to tolerate which often leads to the destruction of the sweetness and ultimately couples give up on each other.
Though it may seem hard, maintaining long distance relationship isn’t impossible if you are really in love and makes the base of a strong, dependable, and beautiful relationship.
Here are some tips for long distance relationships!
1. Regular and innovative communication
The secret of any successful relationship is communication and with it comes understanding. Through strong communication, the relationship progresses and a strong connection develops. Talk about the everyday happenings, various instances of your lives, share opinions and talk about things that interest both of you. Send voice messages, videos, make cards and send pictures thus making communication no barrier. With the new technology, WhatsApp, Facebook, Skype, communication is easier. Make use of these tools, effectively.
2. Do constructive work together
Whether it is making a wonderful presentation together, building a website, writing a novel or studying: you can do so many things together, constructively. This will build up a sense of fulfillment and togetherness and develop your chemistry.
Though it might seem impossible from distance, you can do it. You both can apply for a joint internship, publish articles together, etc. You will be benefited.
3. Providing space
Just like communication is necessary, providing space is also very important. Do not be clingy and ‘over possessive’, taking away each other’s time in useless communication.Just because you are in a long distance relationship, do not become too obsessed. Long distance relationships do not work that way.
Tips for long distance relationships include learning to trust each other, staying aloof and performing productive work, so that you do not lack things to talk about when you finally communicate.
4. Be positive
This is very important in a long distance relationship. There will be times when you would want to curl up in a ball and cry, desiring the warmth and presence of the other but is left with no choice. During those moments of frustrations, stay strong and positive. If one breaks down the other should provide positive energy, asking the other to relax because eventually, you both will end up together, soon.
