Ask anyone about the ways to endure long distance relation and you will know that it is enough to drive you to the borderline of insanity. Handling the absence of your partner is something that only the tough ones can go through. But then desperate times can bring out the best in anyone. Also, the hope of meeting your beloved someday keeps you smiling and braving the distance. Read further on to know how to make a long distance relation survive and make it easier for both you to remain in love forever.
How To Survive A Long Distance Relationship
Make a scrapbook of your partner's photographs. If you can, take print outs of his/her photos and stick it on your bedroom wall, or put it in a photo frame by your bedside. At least, you will get to "look" at him/her whenever you feel lonely and are missing him/her terribly. This will lessen some of your longing for him/her.
Make sure you talk to each other daily, even if it is for 5 minutes. If you cannot talk, use the Internet and send mails daily. It need not be anything special. Just talk about did your day go and ask how was his/her day. Tell something that stood out or something that made you feel good in the entire day. Strike a conversation like what you would have done had you guys been together.
Little Things Matter
So what if your beloved is 3000 miles away from you? You can always sense what your beloved uses in his/her daily life. Buy that cologne he uses, or get those aroma candles she loves. That way, you can always feel that he/she is right there, near you. Learning about their daily lives is a great way to keep the relation healthy and alive.
Plan your Meeting Together
Keep the excitement alive by planning your meeting together. That way, both of you will treasure the moment you will get to meet and will be looking forward to it. Make a list of things-to-do together when you meet. It will keep you from sulking till the time you are apart and you can always make plans to make your meeting special.
Set a Limit of your Absence
When you set a particular deadline of the time you are going to be away from each other, you will not be as depressed as you will know that your wait is limited and will be satisfied by the mere feeling that someday you will be united again. You wouldn't be bogged down with the thought that you would have to wait forever.
