Making Long Distance Relationships Work

Long distance relationships can be tough and not for the faint of heart. The first stages of love always feel hopeful and positive but there comes a time where fears and doubt take over. Is this relationship worth it? Can this really work out? Do we have what it takes to make this relationship work?

Take a break from those negative feelings for a moment and consider this: Even in traditional relationships feelings of self-doubt and fear can exist. It’s natural to want to be reassured that feelings of love and admiration are shared and reciprocated. So what can be done? How can one cope with a long-distance relationship?

The strength of a long-distance relationship depends on the quality of the communication, and not necessarily the quantity. Maintaining an emotional connection is important, and while there are exponential amounts of ways to stay connected in this world, they each have benefits and pitfalls.

Let us count the ways.

Without a doubt the simplest and most beloved way to stay in contact is by phone. Hearing a human voice and all its little nuances makes all the differences in a conversation. A five minute conversation can be extremely satisfying for both parties involved, however long-distance rates can vary wildly and talk time can get expensive. Long-Distance Mobile solutions such as Pure Minutes give up to $3 in bonuses just for signing up (Click Here to Find Out How!) and offer affordable international calling without the calling cards. These pinless calling cards are a great and convenient way to save money and keep in touch with loved ones.

Skype video-calls are a close second, because absolutely nothing can replace being able to chat to each other face-to-face. However a quality internet connection might not always be available to both parties. The system is also generally limited to home connections, making scheduling conflicts a real possibility. Video calls are a great way to show off recent projects and make sure to set aside time to watch some shows together or do some cooking.

E-mail communication is effective, especially with intermittent or underdetermined schedules, however may come off cold and impersonal. Make sure the e-mails are substantive and detailed, the time and effort will always pour through. Share triumphs, tragedies, photos or links to articles to make opening the e-mails a rewarding and interactive experience.

The last major way to stay in touch is the highly traditional, but timeless, hand-written letters and care packages. The importance of the letter has depreciated since the advent of the internet, however it is important to remember there is a high level of sentimentality through the physical post. When the recipient is reading a hand-written letter, while presumably snacking on some homemade cookies, it’s a far greater experience than reading typed word on screen. Receiving a gift in the mail is an exhilarating feeling, and as long as the gift is thoughtful it doesn’t even have to be expensive.

These simple tips can help maintain or even strengthen long-distance relationships and make it a little more bearable. The topic of discussion will vary from couple to couple, but however you plan to stay in touch will be all yours.
