While a long distance relationship is never easy, but let’s be real here for a moment, no long term relationship
Both long distance and real life relationships take work, commitment and communication. So, don’t let the
distance by itself scare you.
Whether you can handle a long distant relationship is really based on you and your needs and wants. There are
lots of ways now to make it easier and more of an option, but there is of course still going to be obstacles.
So this article is all about showing you the good and the bad and letting you determine if a long distance
relationship would work for you.
One of the best and most important tools in a long distance
relationship is the technology that is available today. If you have internet access you have the ability to
connect with just about anyone.
You two can talk through so many different avenues. You have Skype, yahoo, Facebook, MSN Messenger, just to name
a few. And the beauty is most of them are free. So you can talk for hours and not run up a huge phone bill.
And with Skype you can, if you both have cams, see each other and have that connection, which is different from
texting or talking on the phone. Skype also offers voice calling so you can call cell phone to cell phone, free of
And in terms of a long distance relationship, communication is going to be vital. If you two can’t communicate
on a regular basis, it will be very easy to drift away from each other.
Now with all that being said, the biggest challenge a long distance couple is going to run into is going to be
the physical aspect. You could potentially go weeks and possibly months without being able to hold hands, kiss,
make love, or even simply go out to dinner with each other. It will require you to get very creative in terms of romance and keeping the commitment of being partners.
Ways to get creative can be as simple as, turning your web cams on and having dinner together while you talk
about each of your days. You can also agree on some sort of visiting schedule. If you aren’t too far away, you can
drive to visit once or twice a month.
If it will require taking an airplane, then it may be longer between visits. But if you set it up and stick to
it, you will each know when the next visit will be, making it a bit easier to wait in between. Send the other
little gifts to remind the other one he or she is on your mind.
Long distance relationships can be challenging, but if you really love the other person and you can utilize some
of the things discussed here you can make it work. Now the big question is do you want to make it work for you?
Because it is all about what you can and are willing to live with and that determines whether you can make a long
distance relationship work for you.
