In today’s world, often you might have to stay away from home for studies, work or other issues. Long distance relationships are an extremely normal thing in today’s era. There is a common perception about long distance relationships that it does not last and is extremely difficult to sustain in the long run. Agreed that there are loads of cons involved in case of long distance relationship but it is not impossible to maintain one.
The following 3 steps will help you keep the fire alive in a long distance relationship:
Have Trust: Every relationship is based on trust. If you do not believe a person, no matter how close you stay – your relationship will not be successful. In case of a long distance relationship, faith and trust are even more important. In such cases, you do not get to meet the person for months and sometimes even years at a stretch. It is only your trust in your partner that keeps it going. Your trust that your partner, though miles away from you, will be faithful to only you.
Both should have the same Wavelength: It is important for both the partners to be on the same wavelength. More than often, people in a long distance relationship drift apart as they outgrow each other. Often living in different cities away from each other changes people and their perceptions. If not shared with your partner, both of you will drift away. Try and do the same thing- read the same book and discuss it. Catch the same movie in different cities and talk about it. These small things will bring both of you together.
Share small things: We all are so busy with our daily lifestyle that more than often, we forget to share things with each other. Take time out from your daily schedule and talk to your partner. Share with your partner each and every small thing that has happened during the day.
These tips will ensure that distance makes the heart grow fonder.
