It’s no secret that long distance relationships are hard in several different ways, especially when they are halfway across the world. Imagine the emotional roller coaster ride every time you have to part ways. Or the terrible days when you have to embrace loneliness and pain because you rarely get to see them. Or the times when you want to talk to them but it’s just not that easy. These and more are the reasons why the stigma that long distance relationships don’t work is attached to this type of relationship.

No matter how difficult things may get, there are many couples who survive the challenges of a long distance relationship. There are many who succeed and end up sharing their happily-ever-after. The obstacles may dishearten you but they are all part of the journey. They add spice to the relationship and make your connection even stronger. If you’re in a long distance relationship, here’s a helpful guide to survive and make it through until the end.

Create something you will look forward to together

One of the things that kills long distance relationships is the tendency to feel uncertainty at some point. Questions as to whether or not the relationship is still worth keeping or wondering if your partner still loves you are things that will haunt you. They will continue to fester the longer you are apart. If you want to make your long distance relationship work, it is extremely important to have something to look forward to. It can be a vacation together, an arranged visit or any event where you both will be able to see each other.

It’ll become more difficult to keep the same enthusiasm the moment you stop having a goal to look forward to. Be sure to always have a milestone you’re reaching together if you do not want to drift apart.

Keep communication lines open

Communication is extremely important in relationships, more so in long distance relationships. There’s no other way you will be able to connect to your partner other than by making time to talk to them regularly. If there’s one thing we all should be thankful for, it’s the fact that communicating with anyone in the world is made easier by the internet. So, take advantage of technology and always keep in touch with your partner. Don’t forget to make them feel loved through emails, chats, voice and video calls.

Make sure the distance isn’t permanent

For a long distance relationship to work, there should be hope that one day, the two of you will be together. Distance should only be temporary and as a couple, this should be part of your goals. Otherwise, everything will feel meaningless no matter how much you love each other.  Imagine how pointless it will be to have to work on your relationship every day without having a clear vision of spending the future together. Also, it’s important that you work on these goals and visions. If you agreed that you will live in the same city in not more than a year, be sure you both do something to make it happen.

Trust each other

Besides love, trust is a crucial element that can hold your relationship together despite the distance. Make sure your relationship is built on trust as a lot of circumstances will test the strength of your relationship. There will be doubts and jealousy but as long as you trust each other, you will definitely make it through.    

Don’t stop making each other feel loved

Making each other feel loved and cared for is important, whether you are together or apart. There are plenty of things you can do to make sure your partner constantly feels loved. They don’t necessarily have to be grand. They can be simple gestures that will remind them that, somewhere across the globe, someone loves and remembers them.

Making a relationship work is not a walk in the park, let alone a long distance relationship. But, they can work and you can make it through if you know how to handle things. Use this guide to help you survive the distance and make your happily-ever-after happen.
