You need to constantly feed the long distance relationships with positive energy to keep it alive. Yes, being patient and anticipating can be hard and uncomfortable. And you can sometimes feel lonesome but you need to remind yourself that your first meeting at the end will be as sweet as honey.
One good way to stay positive is to keep a gratitude journal and be grateful all the time. For that, you have someone to love and someone who will also love you back, no matter what. Also, be thankful for the little things, like the hand-made gift or handwritten letter that arrived in your mailbox. Be thankful for each other’s love, health and well being..
I would rather be here, far from you, but feeling really close, rather than close to you but feeling really far away. ~Emma, Glee Season 4
Healthy & Effective Communication
Get some good quality messaging and vides calling app and stay in touch whenever possible since this will help you both. Don’t bring about problems that you encounter during the day. Start with some nice things that happened to you and let those issues come into conversation naturally.
Also, be a good listener. Be charming and attractive. Let your loving always see you in your best mood. If it’s impossible do not pretend. You know that honesty is the best policy because it is always better to discuss a problem in its initial stage then when it’s too late. And the least you need is that you talk only about the things that bother you on your next face to face meeting which you have been waiting for so long. So try to communicate at least once a day and let it be creative.
Set some basic rules to head up your expectations.
The long-distance relationships imply that both of you need to be sure and clear about what you expect from a relationship and most importantly, from each other. Set forth some initial rules so that none of you will be taken by surprise if something unwanted happens.
You have to ask each other the questions like: are you two exclusive, how long do you expect yourself to be committed in such a relationship, what is your commitment level, how often are you going to see each other, who has more spare time to travel and see his partner and so on. The best way is to be open and honest when it comes to answering these questions since that way nobody is going to be hurt.
Do Similar Things Together
Chose what you both like the most, be it a movie, book, Tv show or video game. Do it together as if nothing makes you apart. Watch a film on some film channels or documentary on National Geographic or YouTube at the same time.
You can sing to him on Skype while he can play the guitar. And make the same meals by recording it on Skype. You can also go shopping together, online of course and buy each other some precious gifts which don’t have to be expensive. It should rather be a memory to remind you of these beautiful moments.
