Long Distance Relationships-Will It Work Either Way
Posted on Jun 2 2012 at 03:22:34 AM in Personal
Do long distance relationships really have any chance at all of succeeding? Well, that depends on the two people in the relationship. It is very important that the two of you are on the same page and want the same things. If you aren't on the same page or don't want the same things your relationship probably wouldn't work out even if it weren't long distance.
Being separated for long periods of time from the person you love is never easy. When you are in love with someone you want to spend pretty much every waking moment with them. The last thing you want is to be away from them for a short time let alone an extended period of time.
In order to increase your odds of having your long distance relationships work out well and allowing the two of you to stay together, here are some things you really should keep in mind and discuss with your partner:
1. Everyone, and every couple, is different so it's very important that you have "the talk". And yes, I mean about sex. Some people think that it is ok to have casual relationships while they are apart while others think that even if they are apart they should stay faithful. No matter which camp you are in you have to make sure your partner is on the same page. This is not the time to assume anything. Talk about it and let them know what you expect and makes sure they are willing to live by those "rules".
2. Keeping the lines of communication open is always important for any relationship, it's just a little harder when that relationship is a long distance one. Fortunately, there are so many technological advances today it's pretty easy to keep in touch. Instead of just talking on the phone you can each get a web cam and have a face to face conversation. That can make things so much more intimate and more like you are actually together.
3. Another thing for the two of you to consider is when you will visit each other. Who will go where? Who will pay? Where will you each stay? How often will you visit? These are all great things to discuss before hand. It won't do the relationship any good if one person has one idea about how frequently you will see each other and the other person has a totally different idea. Talk it out first.
4. Having an "end point" is a good idea too. How long will the long distance part be an issue? Is someone just going away to school or will one partner eventually be joining the other? Knowing that it won't be forever can really help out.
Being away from the one you love isn't the most fun thing in the world, but it doesn't have to mean the end of the relationship either. It is possible to make long distance relationships work, especially if you both have the same ideas from the start.
If right now you really want to start looking for how to get my ex back and you have been looking for ways to protect it and also keep your relationship strong, then you should determine to fight for it. Now the ball is not just in your court now but right actually right in front of you waiting for your action.
I really wish you all the best in your relationship. More information, visit http://about-relationship.com
