5 ways to survive a long-distance relationship

Being apart from each another can be a drag, especially if both of your time zones are completely different. But here’s what you can do to make it work…

Be on the same pagersz_03b66965

Before moving apart, have a heart-to-heart talk to find out if the both of you really want to go through it. Discuss your relationship goals and be certain you both see the same future 10 years (or more) down the road.

Don’t hold back 

If you need to cry, go ahead and do so. Holding it back causes pain, and while you’re apart from him, feel free to throw a pillow against the wall, go for a run or do anything that lets you release those emotions.

 

Stop over thinking

Refrain from freaking out every time he replies late or assuming the worst when he’s tagged standing next to a girl in a picture. Trust and respect are everything in a relationship.

Communicate

Use the technology available today instead of making excuses about not having time. Since you’re both unable to be physically together, actions like hugging and kissing can be translated into text form. Get creative and before you know it, it’s time to be back together.

Honesty is the key 

Don’t be afraid to voice out your fears, worries and jealous feelings to him (even if it sounds ridiculous). He needs to know what’s bothering you so that he can react. Remember, men are not mind readers. It’s going to be awkward the first time but definitely worth it.
