Long Distance Relationship

Recommended Posts

I live in Asia and he lives in the UK. I realize I've been a bit naive and too optimistic when we started dating, thinking everything will be easy as long as we love each other. Alas, life happens and it makes you realize it takes more than love to make a relationship work. To those who have experienced being in a long distance relationship, how do you keep the love alive?

Long distance relationships can be strenuous if both parties do not completely trust each other. One way to insulate long distance relationships from losing trust between the partners is a commitment by both partners to be in constant touch. Sharing details, even seemingly minor ones, can be way of keeping the connection strong. Treat your partner as if he/she is in the same locality with you. Being spontaneous will also keep the love alive. Send little messages or notes reminding your partner how much you miss him/her. Be creative!

Keeping the love alive in a long distance relationship is a huge challenge. The only way to keep it alive is to be completely honest with your partner.

I am currently in a long distance relationship with my girlfriend. I'm from the US and she's from Italy. We communicate, we're there for each other, we talk about our favorite things. I'm also learning Italian just for her and when we talk, she gets excited when I use her language and really loves it when I do it! Trust each other, be there for each other, be honest! Let them know that you're thinking about them, send them gifts or letters in the mail from time to time, make plans to visit each other in person, call/video chat with each other(there are apps out there that you can do these things for free if you're worried about phone bills). It is definitely possible to be in a long distance relationship! Treat them as if they're actually within close distance from you.
