Long Distance Love: How to Make It Happily Last

Long Distance Love: How to Make It Happily Last

Long distance relationships: The big question of whether they can really last or not. The good news is, you can make your long distance love happily last, if you know these few simple tips.

It is a fact that being in a long distance relationship is very different from a normal one when you and your partner are physically together all the time. This lack of physical presence can make the whole relationship seem like an illusion.

I am sure that almost every person in an long distance relationship has wondered at some point about whether the relationship was actually real or just wishful thinking.

You may wonder at times whether your partner really loves you as much as you think. And because you can’t see their face or touch their hand, the assurance may be fickle at times.

So Can Long Distance Love Really Last?

The good news is yes, IF both you and your partner do what it takes to keep the fire of your love alive. It may not be easy at times, but if you really care about him/her, you’ll find plenty of pleasure in keeping your love alive – no matter the distance.

So here are some tips to help keep the love and passion alive…


1. Long Distance Love: Your Communication

1. Don’t fall out of touch, even for a short time.

Return all e-mails at the earliest opportunity.

If you are going out of town or are otherwise going to be unable to respond, let your partner know as soon as possible so they don’t think something is wrong or start to have doubts.

Keep all online dates.

2. Talk regularly through voice chat or via the telephone

Your voice adds that touch of reality to the relationship and makes you more than just text on a screen.

Video Chat if possible or at least send pictures regularly. Can you imagine how differently you would feel if you could actually see your partner when you talk to them? You can bet that they would feel the same.

Rather than having to imagine how you looked when you laughed or smiled, they could actually see it.

3. Get to know as much as you can about each other

Tell your partner about your day to day life, your friends, your relatives, your job etc. Make them feel like they are an integral part of your life. At the same time, find out as much as you can about them too.

4. Be there when needed

One of the worst mistakes you can make in any relationship is to not be there for your partner when they need you. This is especially true of a long distance relationship as there are already inherent doubts and this will just reinforce those doubts.

Seek your partner’s advice, listen to what they say and make them feel special and important to you.

2. Long Distance Love: Your Romance

Love is the backbone of any relationship. As long as the other partner feels that you completely and unconditionally love them, those doubts will not have a chance to creep in.

It is up to you to make sure they know exactly how you feel about them. Some ideas include:

  1. Reinforce your affection with poems, stories and love letters
  2. Send them care packages, postcards and gifts
  3. Create a personalized love craft and send it to them

3. Long Distance Love: Your Presence

Make sure you have a presence in your partner’s life. Continually reinforce the fact that you are there, that this relationship is real and there is no way that you are going to let a little thing like distance get in your way.

If you do the things listed above, you will create a good presence in your relationship. Just to make sure, I have listed below a few resources to help you.

Good luck! :)
