Long Distance Relationship Survival


There umteen amounts of articles and how-tos to make a long distance relationship work. There are step-by-steps and all-too-many suggestions on what to do to instil longevity in relationships.

Here are four suggestions that I found worked in my experience:
  1. Choice: You make the choice to be with one another despite distance.
  2. Communication: Phone calls, emails, messages, surprise visits really fill in the gaps in a relationship that distance now fills.
  3. Free Time / Holidays: Take time out of your schedule and take time to regularly visit one another during weekends and holidays to catch up.
  4. End Date: Decide when this long distance relationship is gonna end and when you guys will move to the same city, move-in, etc.
Message me or comment if you guys have any additional suggestions! :)

Absence is to love as wind is to fire;
It extinguishes the small and kindles the great.

  1. Yes 1, 2, and 3 are very true but I don't think there is always an "end date" that needs to be set. Patience and trust are two big things that need to be taken into consideration as well.

  2. But I believe there needs to be an understanding of how long LD will keep up...

    For example, if a guy gets a job somewhere in another part of the country ... and the girl is left at home, they will need to how long it will have to keep up, otherwise it's gonna drag on and on.

    Like in the case of someone going away to school like you and I and our significant others are not at school with us, we don't need and end date, per se, because it's already understood. We go away to school for four years, on eight month terms, so you know when there's a large timeframe to establish a relationship and when the final frequent coming and going will take place.

    Patience and trust are key aspects that you need in a relationship regardless of distance and go hand in hand with communication, etc.

  3. I am also in a long distance relationship, have been for a while now, and I think you completely nailed it with those tips. I don't think I can even stress how important communication is to a long distance relationship - it is the foundation. Both of you always have to make sure you're on the same page and still want the same things you did when you first started. It's also nice to just hear the other persons voice too, especially when you don't have a chance to see them - gives you a sense of comfort.

    However, I think tip #5 for the list should definitely be trust. If you do not have complete trust in your partner, there is no way you could make a long distance relationship work. You have to know that your partner (boyfriend/girlfriend) will have complete respect for you even when you are not there. (aka. Will Not Cheat)

  4. I agree with ALL you girls. (we should write on book on how to be in an LD relationship - haha)
    and another thing to add... you have to WANT to be a LD relationship.

  9. A long distance relationship is a true test of love, commitment, trust, passion and honor to someone that is first and foremost in your relationship, your best friend. I think that if people can base a true relationship on friendship first anything is possible. True friendship in your relationship will endure all…including distance.
