Secrets to Success in a Long-Distance Relationship

Posted Dec 07 2008 4:43pm

long_distance Now here’s a toughy. This subject is so riddled with complexities that whole books are devoted to the issue.

Having been in a few long-distance relationships myself I can relate to the fun of it and the struggles of it. It can be painful. It’s lonely. But how great it is to see your honey come walking away from baggage claim and into your arms?

If it’s love or if you think it might be love, then long-distance relationships can be done. It must be done!

Here’s how:

1. Don’t hang up the phone in anger. This will get you no where.

2. Don’t call drunk – just don’t.

3. Send cards, gifts and other surprises in the mail periodically.

4. Don’t expect gifts or surprises from your partner. Not everyone is good at the old fashioned mail thing.

5. Surprise visits are good, but should be done only now and again. The other person has a life, a routine, and they need to keep their independence too.

6. Make phone dates once a week. On your phone date spend an hour or two talking about your relationship or other important issues besides just the usual “so how was your day?”
