Communication as we already know is the key to make any long distance relationship work.But what if you don’t feel like murmuring or scribbling out your feelings every time?
There are times when you just want to see their face, feel the simplest of things like holding their hands, hugging them tight or playing with their hair without uttering out a single word. You miss their presence and cannot express out your emotions.
Let’s go through a few quirks to make your long distance relationship work!
Less is more
You really don’t have to communicate 24*7 to keep the relationship going!
Sometimes, teasing at the right moments and tugging at the right spots is what you should consider. Avoid excessive communication as it might make you look sticky or possessive.
Show your affection when it’s really required!
Truth builds trust
Express your fears, insecurities, desires or whatsoever you feel. Stay honest and open to each other instead of holding it all to yourself. Hiding your feelings will swallow you up from inside and keep your partner guessing about your erratic behavior.
Also, keeping each other updated about family, friends and work schedules builds a good connection based on trust.
Remember: A single lie can ruin everything and little obstacles can become mountains when you’re apart.
Designate date nights
Plan an online dinner date. Watch a movie on youtube or vimeo at the same time. Sing to each other on skype while one of you plays the guitar or take a walk together while video-calling each other.
You can even go online shopping and buy gifts to each other.
These little things will not only make you feel special but also together even though you are living apart.
Make surprise visits
Surprise visits are the highlight of any long distance relationship!
After all those days of waiting, missing and yearning, you finally get to be with each other. You can hold hands, hug tightly, kiss your partner and just feel complete in their presence. All these things which are routine to other couples are so very special and extra romantic for people living in long distance relationships.
It will feel like fireworks, glitter bombs, confetti, rainbows and butterflies altogether!
Do dirty talking
Well, dirty talking is not at all dirty!
Lovemaking is not only a biological need, it is more of an emotional one. Carnal desires keep the bond intact and are the most important part of any relationship. Sending each other playful and provocative messages help in balancing the sexual tension between the two of you while staying apart.
Sexy pun and pictures of you will work well too!
Get closer and stronger
Take it as an opportunity for the two of you.
Why not to think that the distance will bring you both together stronger than ever? Instead of thinking that the long distance relationship will drift you away, view it as a learning journey for both of you.
Don’t be careless about things which might hurt your partner and be thankful that you have someone to love- someone who loves you back equally or even more!
