These days one would hear things like, Long Distant Relationship (LDR) can ‘NEVER’ work.
How can one date or be in a relationship with a person one can’t see every now and then.
Or even get to spend time with more often and get to know the person and what have you.??
In my opinion, I will say, Long Distant Relationship (LDR) is more like a Normal Day Relationship (NDR).
In which the only major difference is you and your partner are miles apart.
And you two don’t often get to see or spend quality time with each other physically as often as you might want to.
Spending quality time or seeing often which is the norm in a normal relationship, in most cases.
Does not even guarantee the said relationship will eventually lead somewhere great and solid on the long run.
That being said, there’s a general saying that, there’s nothing impossible when one puts his/her efforts into something and is determined to make it work at all costs.
This also applies to both Normal Day Relationship (NDR) and Long Distant Relationship (LDR).
True Love, on the other hand, is no respecter of distance or what have you. The hearts of two love birds irrespective of wherever they are, if they are true and committed to each other.
Their love would eventually blossom and stay stronger each day until the right time in which they come together as one in marriage.
Below are few things to adhere to if one desires a successful Long Distant Relationship (LDR) and also desires to make it wax stronger and better on the long run.
1. Communicating as often as Possible
Communication is one of the core ingredient in any relationship be it mutual or romantic.
Communication helps the partners involved have a glimpse of what’s going on in their lives and how best they can make it work or see things they are not doing right.
2. Being open, and carrying each other along in your plans
One would say partners who see each other daily or who live in the same city tends to sometimes complain that their partner is not open to them.
How much less someone whom you don’t often see physically.
Well, there’s nothing impossible if one could show been committed to each other by seeking each other’s opinion about ones plans and the best ways to go about it.
3. Building each other up and encouraging each other
Asides talking romance and other obscene talks. Both partners when they endeavour to encourage, each other.
And build each other either mentally, spiritually, and what have you, it helps the relationship in so many ways.
By helping each parter to be better than they were before the relationship.
4. Apologising easily whenever any of the partner wronged the other
The act of being truly sorry for a wrong deed done strengthens any relationship. Likewise a Long Distant Relationship (LDR).
So none of the partners should always claim being right, it only weakens the relationship and draw you guys apart.
6. Being truly committed to each other:
In a normal relationship where one sees each other almost every now, and then. Being truly committed is most times difficult.
But it only takes discipline and the strong will to be with your partner and choose your partner every day no matter what.
This should be the same in a Long Distance Relationship
7. Make time to see and spend time with each other physically:
You two might have been far away due to work, educational pursuit, and what have you.
But nonetheless, if either of you could take turn in visiting each other whenever you can to spend special and fun moments together.
It helps strengthens the bond between you two and helps you grow stronger and better
