How to make a long distance relationship work

For many couples, a long distance relationship is the only option. But it’s not easy. The distance between you and your partner can make it hard to stay connected. It also means that there are fewer opportunities for sex, which makes it harder to maintain physical intimacy in the relationship. And when you do see each other, everything is rushed because of the time difference and lack of privacy. Finally, frequent visits from friends and family can be disruptive or distracting if they don’t understand why one person in a couple might have more days off than another person who lives nearby does.

Communicate often and openly

One of the most important things you can do in a long distance relationship is to communicate often and openly. This means sending text messages, emails, or making phone calls as often as possible. You also need to be honest with each other about how you’re feeling. If something is bothering you, don’t hesitate to let your partner know. Finally, make sure to set aside time each week to talk about your relationship. This can be done over the phone, online, or in person.

Make time for each other, even if it’s just a few minutes each day

Another important thing to remember is that you need to make time for each other, even if it’s just a few minutes each day. This can be done by sending short text messages, emails, or making a quick phone call. You can also use technology to your advantage. For example, you can watch the same movie together online or even play video games together. And if you’re able to visit each other, try to make the most of your time together. Shut off your phones and laptops, and focus on each other.

Talk about your expectations and make sure they’re aligned

It’s also important to talk about your expectations and make sure they’re aligned. This means that you both need to be on the same page when it comes to things like sex, communication, and seeing each other. If you can’t agree on something, it might be best to end the relationship before it gets too complicated.

What was the longest facetime call

I can’t remember exactly how long the longest call was, but it was definitely more than an hour. We just talked and talked and talked. It was great.

Find shared interests and activities to enjoy together

Found shared interests and activities to enjoy together by reading each other’s blog posts, watching the same movies, and playing video games online. We also talk a lot about the games we both play and so on.

Make sure you have your own life and interests

It’s important to make sure that you have your own life and interests, even if you’re in a long distance relationship. This means having friends who don’t know each other (so they can’t gossip) and spending time alone. You can also set aside one night a week for friends or activities that don’t involve each other.

Support each other through the good and bad times

One of the most important things you need to do in a long distance relationship is support each other through the good and bad times. This means being there for each other when things get tough and being happy for each other when things go well. You also need to make sure that you have the same goals and vision for the future. If you can’t agree on something, it might be best to end the relationship  before it gets too complicated.
