How Does it Look Like?
Most successful long distance relationships have at least a few things in common. By successful, we mean that they generally feel positive about their relationship and their partner, whether or not they plan to eventually transition to a non-distance relationship.
Surprisingly, it isn’t necessarily important how the relationship started (aside from honesty being a key factor: Catfishing is not the answer). What is important?
1. How often you Communicate
Couples who get in touch at least once a day are generally happier with their relationship. But be careful! If you never put your phone down, it’s likely you’re missing out on aspects of life that are right in front of you.
Make time to catch up with your long distance love at least once or twice a day, but be sure to enjoy your life.
2. How you Feel when you’re Together
If you’re generally a happy couple, you’ll be more likely to succeed in a long distance relationship. Sounds like a no-brainer, right?
But frequent arguing can often be mistaken for passion, especially because dramatic love is often depicted as the most real and raw. The truth is, thriving over a long distance requires cooperation and trust.
3. The way you look at the Future
It’s fine to take things day by day or to plan far in advance. What matters most is that you and your partner have compatible strategies for looking ahead, or that you can at least accommodate each other’s point of view.
A little tip: You might find that it helps both of you to schedule and plan your visits so you always know when the next one is. That way, you have something to look forward to.
4. How you grow Together
No one is the same person today that they were ten years ago. Growth is part of the human experience. But when a couple grows together and grows closer, then they can weather what comes their way.
Part of the challenge of a long distance relationship is not having as many shared experiences, therefore sometimes growing in different ways. Expect your partner to grow and change, and support them as best you can.
5. The way you view a Challenge
Two people who both generally possess positive outlooks are more likely to be satisfied with their relationship. If you begin a long distance relationship thinking that there’s no way it can work out, it’s going to be a self-fulfilling prophecy.
These are, of course, just a few of the things that help make a relationship successful. How do you cope with long distance? What does – or doesn’t – work for you?
