Before I go on about the things love is capable of making you feel, let’s start with a simpler question –Are you truly in love? Or is this one of those times when you mistakenly fall for the infatuation that often comes disguised as love? Of course this is out of the picture if you have been with your partner for quite a long time, but it will matter once the distance kicks in. Distance relationships are not easier to sustain, but are not impossible as well. Here are 7 ways to keep your distance relationship strong and healthier than ever:
1. Keep Doing The Small Things:
A “Good morning beautiful/handsome” or a “good night sweetheart” text might seem insignificant, but it does wonders for people in a distance relationship. She loves flowers? Try sending her flowers every once in a while along with something she’s not expecting at all. He loves to work out? Send him a pair of his favorite shoes. Smallest gestures often do the trick for couples living apart.
2. Surprise Them:
If you’re waiting on doing things specifically on special occasions like birthdays or anniversaries, don’t. This is a common mistake people hate to admit –being anticipated. I know it’s tiring to travel all the way just to see them, but that’s the only way you can catch a glimpse of their smile that runs across their lips each time they see you. Give them surprise visits and make every single day you stay feel like their birthday.
3. Keep The Trust Intact:
The most overlooked yet important factor that keeps a relationship together is trust. So what if your partner got a hot office colleague they hang out with all the time? Is this enough for you to doubt their faithfulness? Why get suspicious over nothing?
You need to understand that if they truly love you, they will never risk the relationship for anything else in the world. The people who truly love each other want nothing else but waking up next to them for the rest of their lives. You need to realize the fact that distance is temporary and it’s just a matter of time before they move back in.
4. Expect Less:
Expectations are often the root cause of people splitting up, says a survey by Toronto escorts. Expectations in a relationship should not be based on what they are supposed to do but rather what they actually are capable of doing in their present circumstances. Be realistic when it comes to expecting things from your partner. If the other person is putting efforts to make you smile, appreciate them. If they’re having a rough day, cheer them up. Mutual understanding is the key to a healthy relationship.
5. Maintain Transparency:
If something they say upsets you, confront them. Don’t give them silent treatment if they’ve been taking you for granted lately. There’s nothing worse than keeping things to yourself and exploding after you’ve hit your breaking point. Getting the burden off your chest might feel good to you but it might bring a lot of guilt to your partner once you bomb them with everything wrong they’ve been doing all these days.
6. Video Calling:
This is the most common thing people do nowadays and undoubtedly the best gift any couple could’ve asked for. You can dodge the boring calling sessions with the much interactive video calls and make each other smile with gestures and much more.
7. Play Innovative Games:
The gif’s are getting very popular these days across the internet. Did it ever occur to you that you can make a game out of it? Send gif’s to each other with the next person trying to guess or continue the story depicted in it, call it whatever you want and have a hell lot of fun together.
Try making a game out of anything across the popular chatting platforms available to you. Innovation is the key to rule out boredom in a distance relationship!
It’s not quite unusual –things getting ugly in a jiffy as soon as distance kicks in. The “We need to talk” is indeed the most disheartening line one can come across this valentine. We’re sure if you stick to the points mentioned above, your valentine’s day would be better than ever. We hope you show the world the true power of love!
