In a relationship, distance is a difficult test. Distance has always existed in the relationship for some couples, such as those who met on vacation and are pursuing their love in different cities. Others are forced to live apart due to circumstances beyond their control, such as work or school. Doctissimo provides you some pointers on how to have a fulfilling relationship even if you live far away.
Understand what to expect
It is critical that each member of the couple understands the type of relationship they desire. As a result, it is critical to clarify your expectations and the extent to which you are willing to go for your partner. This translates into questions to ask, such as "do I see myself with him or her in X years?" or "How are we going to solve the distance problem in the near future?"
Make use of emerging technologies.
A long distance relationship, in addition to being challenging, could be quite expensive until a few years ago. Calls had to be brief, if not uncommon, and contact was mostly done through the mail. However, thanks to emails, videoconferences, and even free messages, it is now feasible to interact with individuals all over the world swiftly and efficiently... So make the most of it.
We try to see each other as much as possible.
Don't pass up any chance to view yourself as soon as it comes your way. It is preferable to take turns making the trip so that none of you appears to be exerting more effort than the other. You can also meet in locations equidistant from your residences on occasion to discover a new location each time you rejoin.
Participate in things together.
Despite the distance, there are numerous activities for two. Watch the same movie at the same time, play online games, read a book, listen to music, visit museums (some give virtual tours), cook (of course, you won't be able to taste the cuisine from the other), go to a concert... Making a list of all the activities you can do together without being in the same physical area will be a lot of fun for the two of you.
Have faith in him.
Infidelity is usually the greatest dread of long-distance couples. When he tells you about this new female at work, your imagination starts running, doesn't it? Of course, it's not impossible that your partner be disloyal to you, but the chances of him or her cheating on you are no less likely if they live in the same city as you. These things happen, but fretting constantly will not help you prevent them. You can only set the "rules of the game" from the beginning and then believe it.
Continue to be romantic.
Even if you can't see yourself as much as you'd want, romanticism should never be overlooked. Send love messages to each other, and treat yourself to tiny gifts... Request that he bring his favorite cuisine to the workplace! Everything is in place to keep the element of surprise in the relationship.
Because of the distance, we sometimes tend to think the worst and take things too seriously. If job, stress, family, health, or other factors prevent you from chatting or seeing each other, don't be frustrated; instead, attempt to make another date as soon as possible. But don't be alarmed; this type of thing happens from time to time.
Don't snoop too much on them.
Being apart makes us always want to know what the other is doing at such and such a time; it's sweet and perfectly normal, but there's no need to scrutinize their every fact and gesture. Then, honestly, the fact that you don't know anything about your spouse since he or she left work makes you jealous rather than concerned. Don't be too heavy-handed; it will have the opposite effect you were hoping for.
Look on the bright side
Instead of being pessimistic, look for the positive aspects of a long-distance relationship. Everyone has more time for personal development, the routine does not have time to settle in, you miss one other, and everything is more intense and passionate when you see each other.
