How to Make Long Distance Relationships Work

Bookmark and Share
The first step in how to make long distance relationships work is first deciding if the person is worth it. This may sound somewhat mean but once you get into one you will quickly realize how important this is. Long distance relationships are very difficult and require a lot of work to make them work. It would suck to devote countless hours, weeks, and months to a person who isn't even living in the same city or country as you only to decide that she/he wasn't worth it in the first place.
If you want to give it a go, the most important part in how to make long distance relationships work is going to be communication. When 2 people are living away from each other, it becomes hard to realize that one is in relationship. You almost have to tell yourself after awhile or your mind almost forgets because it feels single.  The next best thing is going to be video-chat with services such as Skype . This brings much more intimacy to the relationship than a normal phone does and allows you to see each other, blow each other kisses. Whatever works!
Set a schedule for at least once a week but preferably a lot more than that. Try doing it when your in a happy mood and in a quiet area. Know that call quality using VoIP software is not always great and the video is not always perfect.
Another key aspect to long distance relationship is sorting out times when you can meet face-to-face. Week or longer vacations to spend with each other and also set a date when you plan for one of you to move closer to each other so that its no longer long distance. Because staying apart can't go on forever!
Long distance relationship is hard. It can work  if you trust each other, stay faithful, and stay in communication  a lot throughout the time.
I hope it works out for you!
