LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP
You wouldn't believe me if I told you that I've been in a long distance relationship with my fiance for 3 years. We knew each other since High School and I remember the first time I saw her and it was right there that I fell for her. It never really worked out at first because things were so complicated back in high school. It was after we both graduated and started college that we started becoming interested in each other again. What really interest her the most about me this time was how much I grew up and the fact that I became a christian also had an affect. For me it was the fact that she was a christian as well and the fact that she grew up as well. It was great to see how much we were so compatible with each other.
After a few weeks of talking to each other we became an item. Our friends weren't shocked that it happened because unlike us they figured that we would end up together at some point but most people never expected for us to last this long. We are engaged and are getting married after we finish college. Now, we are very happy together, but as you all may know a long distance relationship is not easy at all and most long distance relationships don't last long. So for this blog I wanted to share 5 tips to help you on your long distance relationship. I will talk more about this topic in the future.
- Communication: Now I know that you're suppose to communicate in a normal relationship as well but you really need to communicate in a long distance relationship. you don't get to see each other often so staying in touch as much as possible really helps trust me. Also remember that you have a life outside of the relationship so learn to take some time for yourself, go to the movies, out with friends, stuff like that.
- Trust: trusting your boyfriend/girlfriend is important and since you can't see them when you want it makes since why you would have a hard time trusting them. If you really love someone the way you say you do you're gonna have to stop asking them all them question. Just remember that whatever they're doing behind your back will come to light. I'm not saying that you shouldn't ask questions, just don't go overboard. (enjoy this video for a few laughs. :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C1pkVrHKDik
- Upsides: You may be in a long distance relationship but it does have it's upsides. For example the one thing that you guys do the most is communicate, going back to the first point. One of the biggest problems that some relationships have is communicating to one another, in most cases it's the guy who has the problem communicating. Being in a long distance relationship takes care of that. I spoke to one of my friends who was in a long distance relationship for a while and when she finally moved in with her boyfriend they still had problems like any other couple but communication wasn't one of them.
- Have Fun: Keep things fresh when you're in a long distance relationship. Create games that you can play with each other, send fun pictures to each other and more. Here are a couple things that I do with my girl to keep things exciting.
The Question Game:
A game where you ask each other questions and have to answer, but you have to say the truth. The limits to those questions are really up to you.
Skype Movie Date:
Have a date night where you two video chat while watching a movie. It's really fun, especially if he/she is a movie freak.
This is where we take pictures and send to each other, the limit to what kind of pictures you wanna send to each other are really up to you.
There are a couple of more things that we do but really what I'm trying to say is to use your imagination to keep things fresh in your long distance relationship.
I'm really happy in my relationship and I love my fiance but it does get hard at times, just remember to never go to bed angry, talk things out and be creative.
