How To Make Long Distance Work?

Having a long distance relationship can seem impossible. Truth is it can work, but you have to willing to put in the work. If you believe you can do it go for it. These are just some of a few ways you can make your relationship last.

1. Agree On Contact

Not seeing your significant other everyday is difficult so it’s important that you keep that line of communication open. Checking in on each other can make a huge difference. It will reassure all parties that they are in fact not alone. Reserve times for contact to avoid going days without speaking. Sometimes life happens and it is easy to forget.

2. Send Selfies

Your partner will want to see your face. Cute little things like selfies make it clear that you are thinking about them. Whether it be a serious, funny, cute, or flirty picture your partner will appreciate the gesture. Also doing this will prompt them to send a selfie back which has the potential to light up your day.

3. Do Things Together

Decide to do something at the same time to create a bond. For example: watch a movie, play videogames, read books, watch tv shows. You can discuss them after and have more to talk about.

4. Be Honest

Honesty in the best policy. Neither of you are directly in front of each other therefore making it harder to trust. Laying the truth out is the best thing to do. The more honest you are the more your partner will feel like they can trust you. Honesty creates trusts and because trust is such a big part of a relationship, honesty is imperative.

5. Be Creative

Do not do the same dull things. Make some power points of how you’ve been with cute little jokes. Or even make a google docs to let out emotions that you don’t feel that you can get out over the phone. Write a short story together. Be spontaneous.


“ I don’t cry because we’ve been separated by distance, and for a matter of years. Why? Because for as long as we share the same sky and breathe the same air, we’re still together.”

– Donna Lynn Hope

      LDRs generally speaking. Although you have to take into account the connection that people in a LDR are building whether they see each other or not. Just like any other relationship you have to want it to work and last for that to happen.

      If you date someone that you see everyday for the fun of it, it won’t work. Then again LDRs aren’t for everyone which is completely understandable.

      "Having a long distance relationship can seem impossible. Truth is it can work." However one must define what is making it "work".

      Are we talking about a relationship that leads to marriage? dating this way for 6 months, one year, two years? or more?

      One major error people make with LDRs is confusing (calendar time) with (actual time together). A couple who spends one weekend together per quarter may tell the world they've been dating for a year after announcing their engagement but their (actual time together) during that year was only (8) days. Odds are if they lived in the same town and only spent eight days together they would not be engaged.

      Long distance relationships were meant to be temporary.

      The goal is to (be with) the person you love.

      The vast majority of couples in long distance relationships have no timeline for when they will be together permanently.

      When there is "no light at the end of the tunnel" whereby someone will be relocating to be with the other most couples eventually drift apart.

      It's the counting down of the months, weeks, and days until one is finally done with the inconvenience of being in a LDR that keeps it strong!

      The only valid reason for being in a long distance relationship is the belief that he or she is "the one". Otherwise if you're just dating for the FUN of it you might as well do that locally.

      One man's opinion! :)
