Check out the tips they shared with us and see if you have what it takes to handle a long distance relationship.
Chismear Communicate as much as possible.
Since a long distance relationship puts you and your partner apart for long periods of time, communication becomes vital. And the best communication includes a mix of texting, calling and Facetiming each other on a daily basis.
2. Don’t be dramatic. Instead, be understanding of each other’s schedules.
Communication takes effort, which is something you have to consider when in a long distance relationship. Rather than getting upset because your significant other missed your call, be understanding of his or her schedule and arrange a time to talk that works best for the both of you.
3. Get creative. ?
After not seeing each other for such a long time, things can get a little boring and repetitive. So Josh and Chachi suggest getting creative physically or emotionally and trying out new things to help keep your relationship fresh and alive.
4. Trust each other.
Without trust, a long distance relationship won’t work. It’s all about giving each other the benefit of the doubt and trying not to jump to negative conclusions. Rather than assuming something, you both have to speak up and be honest with each other, which is what leads to the next tip.
5. Be honest about your feelings with one another.
If you’re struggling in a long distance relationship, let your partner know. After all, you two are in this together and it takes both of you to make it work.
6. Constantly compliment each other.
When you and your boo are apart for so long, things can get tough, which is why reassurance is major key. Little things like ‘I miss you,’ ‘I’m thinking about you,’ and ‘I can’t wait to see you,’ go a long way. Giving each other compliments, and letting each other’s strengths be known, rather than each other’s weaknesses, definitely boosts confidence when in a long distance relationship.
7. Put the phone away and live in the moment when you’re together.
When you’re together, be present. Put aside social media and everything else for a moment, and just have fun.
8. Cherish the moments you have together.
Since you two are apart so often, it’s important to appreciate the moments that you have together when you finally get to see each other. Block everything else out and focus on each other.
9. And lastly, be spontaneous.
Rather than getting stuck in a routine, mix it up and do things that you two normally wouldn’t do. Have fun, and don’t take the moments you have together for granted.
