One of you may need to talk all the time. The other may just want a few check-ins here and there. Ask one another what you need and try your best to meet each other's expectations. Communication is key in any relationship, especially when you are living so far apart.
Sexting, sexy pictures and a little naughty talk can go a long way. You have to keep each other on your toes and this is a perfect way to do just that. Steam it up and you will be aching to see the each other more than you already are.
People do stupid things when they are sad and lonely. Do yourself and your partner a favor and stay away from any temptation. It may feel fun and exciting at the time, but in the end it isn't worth it. Why would you even want to put yourself near a situation that would be bad for your relationship? Don't do it.
You may not be able to actually be in the same room, but that doesn't mean that you can't do things together. Play video games with on another. Cook together or do laundry at the same time. While it's not as good as the real deal, it will make you feel like a real couple.
It may break the bank, but try to see each other when you can. Make plans for when you will see one another. Talk about who is traveling next and how long you have to go before that can happen. Those countdowns will help the time go faster and your long distance relationship won't feel so ominous.
If you are doing long distance with someone that you truly see in your future than you have to have an out. Are you just doing this while they are finishing school? Is one of you going to move in six months to be with the other person? If their is no end in site, it's hard to look forward to the future and you may just be wasting each other's time.
It's good to be on the same page. If you know when they are working, you won't wake them up with a text. If you know when they get home from work, you guys can plan a Skype session. Let them know if you are going out for a drink after work. They will appreciate you fitting them into your schedule.
Give them something to cuddle with at night, like a shirt or something that smells like you. Send them fun gifts in the mail too. Surprise them with little things that will remind them of you to keep things fun and exciting.
You don't have time for games. If you are doing long distance you have to make the best of what you've got. Keep it straight, say what you need and what you want. Be upfront with any issues you are having, solve it and move on. It's not worth it to play games.
When you are together, try to just enjoy each other. Don't spend too much talking about how you hate long distance and don't want to do it anymore. This is what you are doing, so spend your time loving your partner instead of fighting or crying about the future.
When they get a "good morning" text first thing in the morning, it will change their whole day. It may seem like just a few words, but those few words mean so much more than that. Start and end your day together.
If you don't trust each other 100 percent how can you do long distance successfully? You just can't. You need to be on the same page and truly trust one another if you want to dive in and make this happen. I know it is hard and seems impossible at times but you can do it! And if it's worth it, you will make it happen!
