Today, for many reasons, many couples are in a long-distance relationship. The amazing thing is that they manage to manage it well. While distance can be measured in hundreds or thousands of kilometers, others are separated by a whole continent, an ocean. However, this is not a problem for some. In this article, we invite you to explore this relationship unlike any other.
Long-Distance Relationships: The Trap To Avoid
All the same, we must not think that it is a long calm river. As in any relationship, there are ups and downs, compromises and intransigence, especially complications that are not obvious.
When the two people met, the context was right, they let themselves be carried away by events. Boosted by this incredible energy, they believe themselves capable of managing everything, even a long-distance relationship. Pass the first emotions, each realizes that both have a well-oiled life and that it is sometimes difficult to find their place. Already in a simpler relationship, it takes time for each to integrate into the life of the other. So imagine the extra distance. Take the time to think carefully and consider all kinds of different situations, from the best to the worst.
Long-Distance Relationships: Keeping The Flame Alive
It is true that today, thanks to new technologies, it is easier to stay in touch. Skype, Facebook, SMS are all ways to stay in touch, to see each other from a distance. Virtually, yes, but it’s already a start. However, it takes more to keep the flame of love alive.
1- No Harassment: Do not fall into the trap of not answering the phone because he/she is with another person. Trust is essential in this kind of relationship otherwise it will not work.
2- Break Your Daily Life: Why not a surprise from time to time by going to see him. Or buy him a ticket to come to see you on an unexpected vacation. It is always a pleasure.
3- Gently Find Your Place: You each have a life, a job, habits that do not often coincide. It is up to everyone to make an effort to integrate into the life of the other, to be part of their daily life. Establish little habits between you (phone call, TV show, etc.).
4- Don’t Stop Living: Do not get caught up in this relationship. Each must be able to flourish without the presence of the other since it is both your choice. If opportunities arise, do activities together.
Living a long-distance relationship to the fullest must emanate from a mutual choice. It can’t work if you put too much pressure on yourself. But like any relationship, it’s a daily job. We must give ourselves every opportunity to make it work and succeed. The most important thing is to always love each other as in the first days, and the distance can sometimes extinguish your flame.
