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.

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.

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.

The ‘How It Started’ Memes Are Filled With The Funny And Wholesome Content We All Need In 2020

@xolei3 / Twitter

It is not a lie to say that 2020 has been a year of disappointment and high-stress scenarios. We’ve had to quarantine from a virus, wildfires are destroying a lot of land, and well, everything else going on has just made things worse. Fortunately, on Twitter trend is giving everyone a chance to see that things can get better.

Let’s face it, 2020 has been a tough year for everyone but one Twitter trend is making life a little better.

We’ve all seen the “How It Started” memes taking over social media in recent weeks. The memes are both funny and inspirational with some showing some amazing glow ups and others showing the crushing reality of everyday life. We have all felt like the man crying over 2020 at some point over the last 7 months. It’s like this year just doesn’t stop.

Relationships are a big part of this meme trend.

Oof. This is painful and so many of us know this to be true. 😭 Sure, we can all blame our relationship woes on the current state of the world. However, that would just be doing a disservice to ourselves and our love lives. Most of us who are single now have been single for a very long time pre-Covid. But, hey, no one knows that you’re lying if you blame Covid.

A few wonderful people highlighted their transition into their true selves.

Stunning. Show-stopping. Magnificent. We love to see it. There is nothing better to see in this world than someone living their authentic truth. Like, go and do your thing. Slay all of the hearts you see, honey, and take no prisoners. We are all better in their world to be surrounded by people living in complete honesty.

The Lil Nas X joined in on the fun and highlighted his own meteoric rise to fame.

The “Old Town Road” singer really did make a big name for himself. Not only did his song get made into a duet and remix with every artist imaginable, he beat Mariah Carey’s record. Lil Nas X went from someone that no one knew to unseating Mariah Carey for longest time spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts.

There are some very clever takes on this meme.

So, like, who else feels like they are being personally attacked by this meme? College might have been years ago but these memories linger. Tequila is just one of those things that so many of use have to learn the hard way and those lessons stick with you.

Simone Biles gave us one of the most memorable glow ups of the meme challenge.

Simone Biles is one of the most legendary women to ever walk this planet. The way she was able to make herself known around the world as the best gymnast is no short feat. She is and will always be one of the best women to represent the U.S. in the Olympics.

Juni From ‘Spy Kids’ Is Going To Be A Dad And Where Did All The Years Go???

You heard it here ‘Spy Kids’ fans! Daryl Sabara, who played the part of Juni Cortez in the original Robert Rodriguez franchise, is going to be a dad for the very first time. That’s right, on Wednesday during an appearance on the “Today show” the actor and his popstar wife Meghan Trainor announced that they are now about to be all about that baby!

On Wednesday Sabara and Trainor revealed that they are expecting their first child together.

“I’m very good as you can tell — it’s all Christmas here,” Trainor teased. “But there’s other news that I’m dying to tell you and my heart’s pounding out of my chest,” she said before telling her husband to “hit it,” before Sabara proudly revealed, “We’re pregnant!”

“We’re so excited we couldn’t sleep,” Trainor gushed. “We’ve been waiting for so long. I was thinking about who do we tell first and I’ve told Hoda since I was 19, going to the Today show, ‘I will have the most babies in the world.’ “

“Every time I see you, I’m like, it’s going to happen,” shee continued. “And it finally happened!”

Trainor, 26, and Sabara, 28, married two years ago in December 2018.

At the time, the two shared that they had been set up by their mutual friend Chloë Grace Moretz and became certain right away that they were in it for the long haul. “I definitely was positive month one when he was on tour with me, and we were like basically living together on the road,” Trainor told People in an interview at the time.

“It’s super cheesy, but when you know, you know,” Sabara explained at the time. “As soon as she walked in the room and I saw her, I just knew: This is the one.”

Since before their marriage, the couple has been open and vocal about their desire to have children.

“If we could do it how we want to, we’d be, like, totally preggo right now!” Trainor told People in an interview before getting married. “We’re ready to rumble. I want some children! I want kids! We’re both so excited for it. We both constantly watch baby YouTube videos and lessons on YouTube, like ‘How to take care of an infant.’ We’re just getting prepared every single day.”

Trainor also expressed her desire to start a family, as soon as she finished touring for her album, Treat Myself.

“I’m hounding everyone, like, ‘When can I get pregnant?’ I think after the tour, I’m just going to get it going,” she said at the time. “I definitely want a village!”

For now, it seems Trainor and Sabara are well on their way to fulfilling their dreams of a family.

“He’ll get dinner for me and set it all up for me, and he knows what I want to drink, makes my ginger ale with my ice,” Trainor raved. “He takes care of me to the fullest level that I don’t even lift a finger. … I never thought I’d be so spoiled in love. He completes everything.”
