How to Maintain a Long Distance Relationship

Long distance relationshipMajority of people think that maintaining a long distance relationship is tough and very complicated. It is totally on you how much serious you are for your relationship.

Long distance relationships have their own pros and cons. For example, if you are a busy person, it will work for you, as you will get enough space. But, if you are a kind of person, who need love and attention all the time, you will find it difficult to be in a LDR. More over, you will always miss the physical love when you are in a distant relationship.

If you are serious and positive towards long distance relationship, it will be much better than a close relationship. Here are few points to remember to make your long distance relation rocking:

How to make your Long distant relation last:

  • Be positive:

The worst cause for ruining a long distance relationship is that people are never positive towards relation. Never think that your partner is away and be in touch with each other, this will help you to maintain relationship. It’s totally up to you how you want your relationship to grow. You both must be totally positive and promise to maintain the importance of relationship.

  • Trust:

Trust is another factor which you must consider while you are in a long distance relationship. There might be insecurities that your partner might find someone else, because you are far from him/her. You need to believe your partner that he/she won’t be seeing someone else, as you both promised to each other. Insecurities can mess up your long distance relationship. If you are loyal to your partner, he/she will surely be loyal to you.

  • Communicate:

It is very important to be in touch with each other through phones, emails, web cam, chat or anything else. Every day you must talk to each other, to know what is going on in each other’s life and to be with each other in good and bad times. Keep inform each other about new friends, new events or another relationship. This will make you both think about each other every day and will give you a feeling of togetherness.

  • Plan Surprises:

Plan often to meet or give him/her surprises. If you are very far that you can’t even meet then do send E-cards, gifts, love letters or dedicate love songs to show that you care and still have lovely feeling for your partner. Love letters are outdated but they can show how much you both miss each other .If you both will miss each other, your love will increase more.

  • Take relationship serious:

If you really want to keep your long term relationship alive, you need to take it seriously. Your love must be same for your partner, even if you both are apart. You both have to keep your relationship on high priority. Always receive each other’s calls and reply to messages as soon as possible. Never fail to express your feelings to each other.

If your partner is away it never means that you start searching for someone else after 2-3 months. Try to follow these tips and this will surely help to keep your relationship rocking.

    My husband and I had a long distance relationship in the beginning since we were both living in different parts of the world. And it’s true, communication helps a lot.

    Nice one!! I had been into one for around one year. Though distance took a toll on us and we both pursued other avenues in life, I am happy that we saved it to a level that helped us to be great friends we still share almost everything and look at each other when we are down in life.

    I love these ways…Other than that, you can e-mail your partner, whether family members, friends, schoolmates, colleagues, and even your neighbours…every day…tell them about your life, don’t hide any problems you’ve faces, juust tell them…and they’ll reply to you…This conversational e-mail goes on every day, you’ll save time and are able to think clearly first before conveying messages…to avoid misunderstanding…afterall, every day is better than once in a while, right?…^_^V

    i loved a girl for 10 years madly, even she loved me even more that what i can imagine. But today due to some unavoidable circumstances she forced to live away from me. today she lives in one country and i live in other. But every day when i get her mails….believe me the happiness which i get which will not match to anything.

    i love her madly….her mails are the only hope for my survival…

    I am a girl and I have been in the long distance love for almost two years. When we meet, things are great. But when he goes back to his country he has his own life and is not willing to commit to me. He wouldn’t think much about future and there is one time that I tried to plan a trip to see him in about 3 or 4 months and he said what if he will have another girl. So we barely plan anything for more than 1 month ahead. So the trust and promise part of the long distance relationship is missing. What connects us is the love itself and I think there will come a time that the system fails. But the possibility of seeing him now and then is so tempting and it is hard to walk away.

    It’s not easy at all. I have one distance relationship and there are times when all we want is to pass through the screen and hug our loved one. Many things can interfere in the duration of this kind of relationship, but what to do??? Hope, always and work hardly to make it happens in real.
