The Deal With Long Distance Relationships

Dec 28, 2007
Relationships take a lot of hard work. Some are more difficult than others. This is especially true for long distance relationships. To make one work is easier said than done as there are a lot of factors that you would need to consider, distance being the first of them. Dealing with your love relationship at the home front can be a bit complex but how do you go over keeping your romance alive when your partner is a number of miles away?

First things first, you should be able to accept the fact that the two of you will be separated for quite some time. It is realistic that you will be traumatized at some point but give yourself time to allow the idea to sink in. As much as you have gotten used to having your darling near you for a kiss or a hug, you would have to deal with the situation and plunge on. When you have acknowledged the fact, you will be able to handle the circumstances with more ease.

The best thing that you can probably do is to change your routine. Go for new exciting experiences that would distract you from feeling pangs of loneliness. If grocery shopping reminds you to much of him, pushing the cart, get another person to accompany you and make it quick. The lesser time you spent in a memory laden place, the lesser lonesomeness you will get. Remember that you still are your own person and you have your own life to live. Do not waste it feeling sorry for yourself and being miserable when your partner could also be indulging in things that would prevent him from being wretched without you too. Try to engage in activities that will enhance your individuality. Go for a new sport or a new hobby, something that you have been longing to do for quite sometime but never got to because you were busy with your partner. Well now you have the time so go ahead and indulge.

Bear in mind that you are not alone. A friend or an acquaintance could just as easily be handling long distance relationships too. You may want to gather and have a girl's night out and exchange tips and advices. This may be a good way to learn and to let go of your anxieties. Also know that a great number of couples nowadays are dealing with this kind of relationships. Ever heard of online dating? These couples may not even have met each other just yet but their romance could very much be as sizzling and as deep.

Speaking of the internet, the wonder of this new technology enables you to communicate with your partner more often. You may not be able to touch him but webcams will definitely give you the opportunity to see him - enough to remind you how he looks, how he sounds and even assure you that he is healthy and well. Get in touch as much as you can. Keeping communication lines open is always good for any relationship. A simple hello may just as well make his day.
