Yes, I know. From the outside, no one understands them. No one understands why someone continues to have a relationship with a person they cannot physically be with; someone miles and miles away. How many times have you been asked thousands of questions about your relationship? Questions that only fill your head with doubt.
It takes two strong people and an even stronger relationship to endure the difficulties of the distance. The biggest issue is most definitely trust. When you aren’t around, your partner could be doing any and everything under the sun. If there is absolutely no trust within the relationship then a long distance relationship should be the last thing you should consider.
Maybe trust isn’t an issue, then what? If your phone wasn’t your best friend before then it is sure to be your best bud now. Communication is key. Since you are not able to spend time with your baby/boo/honey/sweetie, those special phone calls can make all the difference in the world. It can place a sense of security back into your mind especially if you have the type of friends/family that fill your head with a bunch of ‘what if’s’. It doesn’t matter how busy you guys are, always make time to speak to each other at least once a day. Also try video chats such as Skype, FaceTime, Oovoo, and Google.
Create a plan. Do you guys plan on living in the same city one day? Do you plan on moving in together? If you guys do not have a plan to come together at some point in time, then I’m sorry to tell you that you’re wasting your time. With love comes sacrifice, sacrifices from both sides. If either of you aren’t ready to leave the current life you have to create a new life together then you both should just move on.
All in all, only you and your partner knows what works best for your relationship. Distance can be a big pain but the reunions are always worth it.
