Now we have come to the final lap of the long-distance relationship series. You can go back to check our initial and the succeeding discussion about long distance relationship for ease of reading. To conclude this series, we would be talking about the final six points to note for a perfect long distance relationship.
Remain Truthful to Each other
To really make it work, you have got talk about your feelings; fear and insecurities truthfully without leaving any stone unturned. Do not try to hide how you feel. Both of you are not within the same locality, you just have to make it easier to accomodate each other. Even when it is the duty of the man to discover the entirety of the woman’s feelings. The essence of having a partner is to lighten the burden: help each other with your problems. Give him every support in your capacity. A problem shared; a problem solved.
Have an Idea of Each other’s Schedule
Ensure you know about the small or big events happening in your partner’s life. For example; university test, examination, hospital appointments, meetings or even important business trips. Having the schedule of the other person makes it easier to intuit when your partner will possibly have a free time to talk. This will help decide on the best time to call or send an SMS.
Be Cool About Stalking Each Other’s Social Media Activities
Don’t ever see anything wrong in posting each other’s pictures on social media, tagging each other, commenting, sharing and liking your pictures. Tweet to each other. These are little things that keep the relationship going. Remember, when you remain truthful to each other, then stalking would be a cool thing.
Physical Gifts attach Value No Matter How Cheap
Mementoes are objects kept in memory of a person. Remember, the human make-up attaches meaning and value to physical things especially if the owner isn’t around. Humans tend to attach value to gifts and favours hence, a pendant, wristband, hand chain, bracelet, ring etc won’t be a bad idea.
Ensure You Both Use a Very Good Messaging platform
Since texting is the most important, common and cheapest way of communicating with each other, it is important that you both select a very good platform that accommodates smileys. The best example is the Whatsapp or BB Messenger
Video-call when possible
While video calling, ensure you give each other pets names because looking into each other’s eyes and hearing each other’s voices and the sound of the name can make everything feel alright again.
Finally, you need to constantly inject positive energy into your distance relationship to keep it alive. Yes, the waiting can be painful and sometimes you feel lonesome but you need to remind yourself that the fruits at the end will be sweet as heaven. One good trick to staying positive is to be grateful all the time. Be thankful that you have someone to love — someone who loves you right back. Be thankful for the little things, like the hand-made letter that arrived safely in your mailbox the other day. Be thankful for each other’s health and safety. Show your partner you are thankful for him/her
