How do you make a long-distance relationship work?


A long-distance relationship is not always a choice. How,
then, do you organize your life to make your long-distance relationship work?
And, how do you deal with the separation? Life sometimes forces us to live
apart from our significant other. Work or family obligations may force us to
live in different cities or even countries in both corners of the world. And,
when we embark on these kinds of adventures, we don’t know what to expect.

Many things are questioned: the love we have for each
other, the stability of the relationship, intimacy, and communication. However,
strong, loving couples can make a relationship work from a distance without any
problems.

Distance relationship breaks the routine even though the
physical separation can be difficult to bear

Physical separation can make love even stronger. It
strengthens feelings and keeps the flame alive. With distance, no routine,
conflict or boredom! You are completely devoted to the other when you
communicate. You have a lot to tell each other.

Reunions are, then, always unforgettable, it’s a new
encounter every time: you feel butterflies in your belly, your heart is beating
fast, your hands are clammy and your stress level reaches new heights!

How about we talk about hugs? Under the duvet, things
become more serious because love at a distance feeds desire! Couples living far
away from open up to each other more easily and share more intimate moments.
Better yet, these relationships last longer!

Unfortunately, some people find it hard to cope with
separation daily. Coming home from work and not finding anyone to comfort and
pamper us is difficult. Long-distance love takes a lot of strength! And compromises!

Love at a distance is possible

According to the proverb “Out of sight, out of
mind”, the love and attraction of two people weaken over time if they are
physically separated. Yet, at a time when it has never been easier to fly or
communicate, many examples contradict this statement! Distance is no longer
synonymous with absence! It is now possible to talk to a loved one even if they
are on the other side of the Atlantic.

To make a long-distance relationship work, trust and
patience are essential. You must be completely faithful and blindly have faith
in your partner. If you begin to have doubts about his or her sincerity, your
long-distance love will not work. Moreover, you must be patient (you know that
this situation is temporary).

Keys to a successful long-distance relationship

Although trust is the basis of any long-distance
relationship, communication is paramount. Send regular love text messages and
tender emails or videos. All you need is a good internet connection. You need
to use your imagination and spice up your relationship!

The secret to a successful long-distance love is to keep
your daily rhythm, i.e. not living on your partner’s time (if he or she is in
another time zone). Just try to plan special times when it’s convenient for
both of you.

Also, don’t distance yourself from your family or
friends; keep up your daily activities. If you forget about each other at a
distance, your relationship won’t hold up because you still need to live your
real life.
