Long Distance Love: Making It Work
Today many people meet their future partners over the internet. Involuntarily they fall in love and try to make an effort to hold it. If you are willing to work it out, here's how to give it every chance to survive and thrive. First of all you should know the advantages of a long distance relationship, like focusing more on your school or career. If partners cannot spend time together daily, the joy of reencounter increases. Partners get more excited and appreciate the togetherness.
One of the most important things of a long distance relationship is to learn to have trust your partner in every way. It does not matter where he is and what he does. Certainly you will worry and feel lonely sometimes but you have to keep within a limit. That’s also a fact of a normal relationship. But you are going to have to trust each other completely if this relationship is going to be work. Because when you are thinking about cheating, you should not put yourself into it.
I think when partners see each other too often, they argue more about little things and get mad about unnecessary things. But when you live far apart you have not the time to think about things like that. And today the internet offers many possibilities to us like talking through messengers (video calls) and sending E-Mails, of course it is a differences to talk to your partner in person but you just gotta make the best of it. There are also calling cards which you can find in any call shops.
Communicate in some way every day, more than once if possible. Since you won't be seeing each other, it's important to establish and maintain an emotional connection. Tell each other about your day, ask for advice and talk more about your future together, because that will always motivate you. Very important: Avoid jealousy and be trusting. Remember that you're still in a relationship. You have to be there for your partner. If your partner is ever in trouble, or hurt, or whatever, you have to be there for them. Make sure you are available to them so that they can reach you if they need you. If they end up dealing with everything alone, they will eventually not need you. And sometimes, distance means being actually, physically there for them.
As long as you both are interested in being in the relationship, you will stick with it and distance won’t make a difference. And if u truly love this person and really can’t imagine to be with someone else (that lives near you) I am very sure it is going to work out.. just have faith and believe in your relationship.
Always remember: ‘’A great relationship is about two main things. First, find out the similarities. Second, respect the differences.’’
