Avoid excessive communication.

Avoid excessive communication.

It is unwise to be overly “sticky” and possessive. You two don’t really have to communicate 12 hours a day to keep the relationship going. Many couples thought that they need to compensate for the distance by doing more. This is not true. And it might only make things worse. Soon you would get tired of “loving.” Remember: Less is more. It is not about spamming — you are only going to exhaust yourselves. It’s really about teasing at the right moments and tugging at the right spots.

Keep The Sex Alive

Keep The Sex Alive

There are only so many dirty photos and text messages you can send before you start to feel burnt out and sexually frustrated. Instead of doing the same message, photo, right hand dance, try something else instead: try phone sex! Hearing each other’s breath, moans and talking to one another while you’re pleasuring yourself will make it feel about as real as it can when you’re not physically together. And when you’re reunited after a long sprint, get in as much intimacy as you can – and not just that gotta-have-you release – but make an effort for some romance, too.

Be Honest From The Beginning

Be Honest From The Beginning

Some people have open long distance relationships where they see other people. Is that something you’d consider? You need to be open about your relationship from the start. Are you going to commit to each other or is this just casual fun? Again, it’s really important you and your partner are on the same page about this or there’s going to be problems.The key to long distance romances is to set your expectations from the beginning. It’s not easy to keep them going, but it is possible as long as you’re both open and honest about everything from the start. Just go into it with your eyes open, and you never know, before long, your long distance romance could become an every day “living together” romance.

One of the greatest disadvantages of being in a LDR is missing family, friends and loved ones and the important events in their lives.In hindsight, I believe this disadvantage is what brought us closer. When he was abroad, I would not only attend some of his friends’ weddings but also check with his family here in India if they required any help. Although my responsibilities doubled, I got closer to his friends and family which further strengthened our relationship.

Stay positive.

Stay positive.

You need to be constantly injecting positive energy into the long distance relationship to keep it alive. Yes, the waiting can be painful and you can sometimes feel lonesome but you need to remind yourself that the fruits at the end will be sweet as heaven. One good trick to staying positive is to be grateful all the time. Be thankful that you have someone to love — someone who also loves you back. Be thankful for the little things, like the hand-made letter that arrived safely in your mailbox the other day. Be thankful for each other’s health and safety.
