1. Do not put pressure on each other about permanently coming together. Major life decisions and moves take time. If it truly is meant to be it will happen so settle that in your mind and appreciate that this amazing person is in your life right now. On the other hand, don’t be afraid to tell your partner what you really need and want from him or her, he or she deserves to know these things about you and judge whether they can give it to you. The key is to make sure these conversations are taking place and see to it that you are both comfortable with the pace.
2. Keep in touch daily. Avoid cancelling visits and putting off phone calls. If big phone bills are a concern, send e-mail, letters, or cute little cards. And when you do make contact, don’t just resort to romantic talk, but keep each other informed on the day-to-day operations of your lives. This is the best way to find out what the other is feeling, thinking and going through. At least once a month, be sure to share what is most important in the long-term in regards to your goals, values and dreams.
3. As silly as it seems, always be on the lookout for cheap airfare or set some money aside every week for gas if you travel by car to see each other. As if long distance relationships are not more complex than most relationships to begin with, the extra expenses to can stress. Most importantly, don’t put a few dollars over saving a relationship but do develop the discipline of saving money to spend time with your sweetheart.
4. Be prepared to be understanding and flexible. If you tell your partner often how much you think about and love him or her, you will prevent the possibility of jealousy that plagues so many long distance relationships. Unless your partner gives you a reason to doubt their trust than never assume the worst. It is much more effective to make them miss you more and find ways to fill them with the constant urge to see you so steer clear of possessiveness at all costs. Being paranoid and making false accusations will only hinder the relationship from evolving successfully.
These guidelines may seem simple but they work!! My last piece of advice it to always keep the bigger picture in the forefront of your mind. If your partner truly wants to be with you, then there is no way they would not want to wait forever to have you next to her or him. As long as you both respect each other and are patient with one another present place in life, your relationship can turn out a happy and harmonious relationship for the long run.
