DON’T Communicate Too Much
As the old people say, too much of anything is not good. And this applies perfectly here.
Even if you are in a long relationship, you Don’t Have to talk to each other 24/7. A lot of couples don’t understand this and try to compensate distance by this. But as it turns out, it does the exact opposite.
Talking to each other too much will make couples grow “tired” of each other. See, you have to give each other some space to breathe. Go for quality over quantity, try to give each other more of your “attention” in less time, rather than spamming.
Think about it…
Maybe it’s an Opportunity?
There is a Chinese saying that goes like “Real gold is not afraid of the test of fire”. Truth be told, long-distance relationships too are kind of a test. A test of your love. Too cliché? Yeah, Alright.
Jokes apart, you can see it as an opportunity to test one another’s love. It’s better to do it now than suffer in a relationship later. For if you survive a long-distance relationship, you guys will be stronger together.
If You Can’t Be Together, Do Things together
Play games, watch a movie together, have dinner through video call, take walks(virtual), go online shopping, Hell do anything together. The world is going virtual anyway, so why not take full advantage of all those online apps?
Send Unannounced Gifts
Believe me, when I say this, there is nothing as exciting as when you receive a gift from your loved one. And it only gets better in Long distance relationships.
It doesn’t even have to be some expensive stuff, you even send your own stuff, like a shirt, or your watch, a pen, if situations allow it, you can even exchange letters. In addition to being lovely, they are also quite an aesthetic way of staying in touch.
Or Arrive Unannounced Yourself
Don’t tell them, and arrive anyway at your girlfriends, boyfriends, husband, or wife’s house. In a long-distance relationship, this is probably the best thing you can do to keep the fire of love, lit. Everyone loves a surprise visit.
Because the truth is told, even normal relationships aren’t easy, let alone long-distance ones.
Even if you can’t do a surprise visit, you can do a planned one. It is just as exciting. If you are on the receiving end, better decorate the house with candles, balloons, or whatever you are into.
Learn One Another’s schedule
Don’t wonder whether they are in a meeting or cheating on you (which they probably aren’t). It’s better if you get to know one another’s schedule or timetable is still in university. Or you can just ask them when they are free and when they aren’t.
It’s as simple as that!
It’s all about Understanding
Long Distance Relationships or any relationship is all about understanding.
You and your partner alike have to understand that both of you have different lives, and you can be busy sometimes, and be occupied. Both of you have your own set of friends, and family, and it’s not possible to give each other the entire day.
It’s hard, yes. But if your love is strong enough, you will have an even stronger bond at the end of it.
