The test of your true feelings sometimes becomes clearer when the distance between the sheets is wide. You have to create time out of a busy schedule or a long day to call/face time your lover, or the moment when something feels off and you cannot reach them immediately to tell them how you feel when you feel, what you feel.
Long-distance relationships are one of the hardest things to do; however, they are not impossible. It is just about how you perceive it, and your deliberate effort to make it work.
- RESPECT TIME DIFFERENCE:
When you are in a relationship with someone within a different geo-zone, there is a need to respect time difference; you don’t want to appear too clingy by being all over the phone calling every 5 minutes. When you do not live within different time zones, take time out to learn their schedule as best you can to avoid disrupting their processes.
- BUILD A TRUST SYSTEM:
Hands down, there is no denying that it is one of the key ingredients of a healthy relationship. Work together as a couple to build a trust system that works with both of you. Hold each other accountable for your words.
- BE SPONTANEOUS:
The fact that you and your partner are not in a physical space should not rob you of the essence of being spontaneous with your relationship. You allowed to move with the tides like every other relationship in a physical space, give your lover the unexpected twist once in a while this keeps the fire burning even when there are a lot of distractions around you both.
- ALTERNATE WORLDS:
We all live in our different imaginary worlds. More like a safe haven where we can truly be ourselves and revel in our imagination of a paradise. The point is for you to make plans to visit each other at the end of these worlds, don’t be scared to let your significant other into your world while they also plan to do the same for you. This would help you get comfortable on both sides of life. Plan something together, a vacation, or a getaway that both of you can look forward to in a different clime while still being cozy as lovers.
- SHARE SOMETHING IN COMMON:
Well, you already have something in common with your partner that is why you are in the relationship in the first place. This time try to have something else that you both would look up for excitement – if you are book lovers join a virtue book club, if you are movie lovers share a Netflix subscription this also gives your relationship some extra flavor.
