DEALING WITH THE DISTANCE.

Many people believe that Long distance relationship will never work out and that is often seen as a common Fact, but I believe that you don't have to see your significant other everyday to stay in Love,often we are warned by friends not to take it seriously to avoid heart break or often depression. The distance will make so many things difficult and you may feel sad and lonely many times,However, the extra distance also makes the simplest things the sweetest, being able to hold the other person’s hand, eating together at the same table, feeling each other’s touch, taking a walk together, smelling each other’s hair… these small wishes could suddenly mean so much more in a long distance relationship.

Long distance relationship always seems hard and most likely isn't easy due to different challenges that will rock the relationship most common things are ; Disagreements , loss of Hope , Temptations and a host of many more to mention. So I will be giving you a 6 powerful

tips I have put together in other to get your engine of love roaring despite the distance :

1.Do things together


Play an online game together. Watch a documentary on YouTube or Vimeo at the same time. Sing to each other on Skype, or wherever that pleases you, while one of you plays the guitar. “Take a walk together” outside while video-calling each other. Go online-shopping together — and buy each other gifts occasionally and never forget each other birthdays.


2. Stay honest with each other.

Talk about your feelings of fear, insecurity, jealousy, apathy, whatsoever. If you try to hide anything from your partner, that secret will sooner or later swallow you up from inside out. Don’t try to deal with things all by yourself that wouldn't help.Be open and honest with each other. Let your partner help you and give you the support you need. it’s better to look at the problem during its initial stage than to only disclose it when it’s all too late, Honestly for me plays an important role in a Long distance relationship.


3.Keep track of each other’s social media activities.


Like each other’s photos on Facebook and Instagram. Tweet each other. Tag each other. Share things on each other’s walls. Show that you care. Be cool about stalking each other. Also post his/her photos once a while or you can have it permanently on your page, Trust me your partner will love it.



4.Gift a personal object for the other person to hold on to.


There is power in a memento. Be it a small pendent, a ring, a keyachain, a collection of songs and videos, or a bottle of fragrance. We often attach meanings to the little things and items found in our everyday life, whether knowingly or not. This is what we all do — we try to store memories in physical things, in the hope that when our mind fails us, we can look or hold on to something that will help us remember. This is why something so simple can mean so much to a person, when others may see little or no value in it. Now I will give an instance of when I was traveling to Anambra and my girlfriend decided to give me a gold bangle and this is very significant in my life till today.


5.video-call whenever possible.


Because looking into each other’s eyes , seeing each other faces and hearing each other’s voices can make everything feel alright again.


6. Snail-mail your gift.


Mail each other postcards and hand-written love letters. Send each other gifts across the globe from time to time. Flower deliveries on birthdays, anniversaries and Valentine’s Day. Shop online and surprise each other with cool T-shirts, sexy underwear and cakes. For instance I never forget to send a cake on my girlfriend's birthday.

I really hope this boosts and keeps your "ship of love" sailing.
