Tips On How To Survive A Long Distance Relationship
So you've decided to get into a long distance relationship. How do you survive it?

In 2011 my husband and I made the difficult decision to have a long distance relationship. That’s right, my HUSBAND and I—so essentially, until recently, we had a long distance marraige. It was really difficult seeing him go and the whole situation transformed me into a sobbing mess as soon as he passed through security at the airport. But over the year apart, we learned to deal with it and are now able to say that we successfully traversed that year as a long distance couple. That being said, a long distance relationship is never easy, but here are some tips on how to make a long distance relationship a little less difficult.

Make Sure You Speak At Least Once Daily During Your Long Distance Relationship.
With the modern internet age, you really have no excuse. Sign up for a Skype account and speak with your phone provider for cheaper rates to that one number. Just hearing each others voices and seeing each others faces helps you through a lot. I even called when I knew he wasn’t available just to hear his voice on his voice mail. I also saved some of the voicemails he left me so that, in the cases when I really missed him, I would listen to them over and over. The whole idea here is to continue sharing your life as much as possible so that you know what the other person is going through. That’s upkeeping the relationship more than any other of these tips!

What if the situation was different and Brad & Angelina met online?

Text Each Other Constantly.
You know those little love notes you never sent when you were together in the same city? Well ta-dah, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily they pop up! In the same manner that you appreciate your loved one texting you to say hello, they appreciate knowing that you’re constantly thinking of them too. You may want to invest in BBM or iMessage, or even What’sApp (it can text free between different types of phones and different countries) so that you don’t get hit with high texting bills! Again, this helps you keep in touch during the everyday monotony of life and allows you to experience life together even if you’re miles apart!
