The Pros and Cons of Long-Distance Relationships
When you are in a long-distance relationship, the last thing you want to do is spend your day worrying about how to make it work. But it’s not always easy and there are many challenges that come with being apart from your partner for an extended period of time. Communication is one of the most important parts of any successful relationship but when distance comes into play, it can be even more challenging and Charlie Eissa discusses that. This blog post will go over some tips for communicating effectively in order to keep your long-distance love alive!
The most important tip: Communication is key!
-The most important part of a long-distance relationship is communication and the two people need to be on the same page in order to make it work. It can sometimes feel lonely when you are apart but constantly touch base with your partner so that they know how much you care for them, even from miles away. If there’s anything going wrong or if something changes, don’t wait until you see each other again because talking about problems will only lead to fixing them before hand instead of having one pop up while you’re together.
-Create technology boundaries: This may seem like an obvious tip but many couples get into arguments over who pays for what or which service plan works best and you should stick with it. You want to avoid fighting over these types of things because it will only lead to arguments and feelings that you are not on the same page.
-FaceTime is a great way for couples who live in different states or countries to stay in touch: Face time can be used with any Apple product so using your phone, laptop, iPad or Mac make sure there’s no excuses not too. It doesn’t take long to do this and if one person has an issue they’ll know their partner is trying hard by making themselves available as often as possible. This will create trust between both people which is needed when establishing a relationship where neither party lives near each other.
