Whether we like it or not, we need to adjust with the fact that our relationship is going to be a long distance. So if your partner is moving away for studies or for some work related purpose, don't worry because making a long distance relationship work is not that tough.
People always say that distance makes it really hard for the relationship to work, but that's not true. With these easy tips, you can always stay close to your partner and make your relationship a success.
With the right amount of hard work and communication, it can definitely go a long way.
It can be difficult that you can't meet with your partner for months or for years at a time, but you can make it work if you simply trust your partner.
Agreeing to trust them but constantly asking them each thing ten times doesn't mean that you're trusting them.
Small things may blow out of proportion for long distance relationships, but believing in your partner during times of fight can do wonders.
It's a fact that if your partner stays away, you can only communicate through technology. Try to call each other rather than text or video call each other as much as you can.
If you're a couple who texts more than talking, it makes the relationship very superficial. Try to see each other on video calls as much as possible or share recent pictures of yourself so that they know what you're up to.
Instead of talking about the random things happening around you, tell them how much you miss them and tell them how you feel. That will make your partner feel that you think about them and that they're important for you.
Your partner is living away from you for a reason. For work or probably for higher studies so let them do what they're there to do. Constantly, pestering them to speak to you or give you time will not help.
Indulge in some jewelry making or knitting for yourself. Try to get a new hobby or just Netflix by yourself to keep occupied. If your mind is diverted, you will think less about bae and miss him less as well.
It's a fact that you'll be missing each other, but there's no point being sad or crying every time you speak on the phone. That would probably bring your morale down and won't do the relationship any good.
Try to turn the distance into something positive and believe that it will strengthen your relationship.
Once your bae comes back to live with you again, it will definitely be the best feeling ever and you would definitely feel a greater bond and a higher sense of security in your relationship.
