A relationship is something more than just ‘I love you’. It is all about sharing a bond that turns two souls into one. But every relationship has its own share of hindrances. They get even worse in case of a long distance relationship. The distance between two individuals can sometimes get unforgiving. Even with the convenience of video calling, the presence of your loved one can still be felt. All of this combined can have adverse effect on your overall relationship.
Here are 7 tips to make long distance relationships easy and even more special:
1. Restrict excessive communication :
When apart, it is not necessary to compensate the love by spamming. This only makes you more irritating and possessive- something that you wouldn’t like in a relationship. Don’t make it a compulsion to communicate with each other all the time. The less you speak the more interest and love you can keep. It’s just about the right timing.
2. Communicate creatively :
You shouldn’t be communicating all the time but when you do make sure to be very creative. Keep each other updated through messages, videos, pictures and some short clips. These are the few things that your loved ones keep close.
3. Set some ground rules :
Setting rules may be very restrictive but that is what you need to keep your relationship intact. It is important to lay down your expectations and in return take note of theirs. This will help in avoiding unnecessary fights. This would allow you’ll to know exactly what to expect and none of their actions would catch you by surprise.
4. Set your schedule :
In order to communicate better and keep the spark alive, you need to set your schedules well. Different time zones, work schedules and sleep patterns can sometimes get daunting. Hence, it is necessary to discuss and set a routine that is the least frustrating and can give both of you some quality time.
5. Make unexpected gestures :
When in a long distance relation, gestures count the most even more than words. Surprise your loved one by ordering them something that they value or opt for a gift that would remind him/her of you. Also what could be a better gift of you making visit to see them. Such trips are very special and intimate for people in LDR since you get to see and be with them after a long time.
6. Avoid the fight :
Make sure to avoid any kind of actions that would displease your partner. Don’t consider it as a casualty because you will be putting your partner in a position of helplessness. This would only increase the distance between you both and add on to the plight.
7. Do similar things :
Recommend things to each other with respect to movies, TV, music, shows, news, etc. This way you’ll have more topics to talk about and make your conversations even more interesting.
With the above tips keep the spark and love on as you may be away in distance but not in hearts.
