Long Distance Relationships | When You Live Here & They Live There

“Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough…”

A long-distance relationship (LDR) or ( long-distance romantic relationship (LDRR)) is an intimate relationship between partners who are geographically isolated from one another.

Long distance relationships aren’t for everyone. In order for a long distance relationship to work  great communication skills is a must. Long distance relationships are a lesson in effective communication. I’m not saying text each other all day everyday or stay on the phone for 5 hours straight. You can start with a good morning text message. By doing this you start off a conversation to see what each other is doing for the day. I know everyone has their own lives to live but when you plan on sharing yours with someone else don’t be selfish and not let that person in. Eventually you go your separate ways for the day. If you are thinking about your significant other a simple… “hey I’m thinking about you” text can brighten that persons day.

Your day eventually ends and you put aside time to pick up the phone and have an hour conversation. You know what works even better? Facetime, Skype, or Oovoo. Those three visual chats and so much more has been a great advancements in long distance relationships. You can end the night on a visual chat or  texting.  There is no reason why you should go 3 days with out hearing each others voice. You should end every night with good night text message. Long distance relationships are tricking but they can work if you put your in great effort.

There is always that one person in a long distance relationship that has doubt that it isn’t going to work out because the lack of communication. A long distance relationship can be beautiful thing and you can always have great conversations because you have so much distance in between.  If your relationship can survive the distance it can survive anything. In order for along distance relationship to work both parties much be fully committed. You both have to give 100%. The great thing about a long distance relationship is that it is more than just physical. Be willing to plan weekend get always and make the most of it. I’m not an expert on romance but the little that I know I like to share my knowledge with the world. But until next time. (:
