Long distance relationships are extremely common these days. It is common knowledge that any relationship needs conscious effort on the part of both the partners. In a long distance relationship the effort needed may be a bit more. Otherwise, it is like any other regular relationship.
Open communication, trust and commitment are the essential keys to conquer the uncertainties associated with such a relationship. These also help to make a relationship satisfying. Being separated by distance, you may often suspect that you are not important to him or her anymore. However, it’s better not to get carried away by such fears. Don’t feel scared of losing him or her. You know that your partner loves you, no? Then what do you fear? Try to stay poised and be confident. Know that being rational helps. Uproot your fears and instead of feeling scared of losing him or her, start positive thinking. It will destroy your fears.
If you have the trust in your partner, temporary separation is of no value to you. The key is of course trust. It binds a relationship strongly. It is the substance which forms the essence of any relationship. So, have faith in your partner. In a long distance relationship this is especially important. Don’t ever feel insecure. It never helps. This merely complicates a relationship. Just because your partner failed to receive one of your phone calls or reply to one of your e-mails will you start thinking that you have lost your partner to someone else? No, certainly not. Ask yourself why you are scared of losing him or her. Is the reason outside or inside?
In other words, it needs a lot of introspection before you feel scared of losing him or her.
Share your feelings with your partner. Distance cannot be a real reason for not sharing anything and you know it too well. So, open up and communicate. Nothing is too small for sharing. Rather, in a long distance relationship, small information takes a big proportion in perspective. So, share as much as possible. Try spending quality time with your significant other from your own location. Want to know how? Here it is. Plan and time an activity together at your respective locations. You will get a feel of sharing out of this. It can be anything, from a TV show to solving a puzzle. Thinking of something more intimate? Go ahead. Live your fantasy. It’s worth it, as long as both of you enjoy it.
After all, separation is temporary, no? Then why should you feel upset? Be positive and you will find the wait is over before you could imagine!
