6 Signs that Your Long Distance Relationship is in Trouble
Find out when you really have something to worry about and when you don’t.

#5: Secrets abound.

Pay attention when your partner is evasive or seems to be skipping important details. This could mean he or she is keeping secrets. If you are withholding information because you’re afraid of disappointing or upsetting your beloved, think twice. Regardless of the “good” reason either of you may have for keeping secrets, this habit always weakens trust.

#6: No fun.
If it’s all “serious” talks and tension when you and your partner do get together (virtually or in person), it could mean that your relationship has taken a wrong turn. Love isn’t supposed to bring you down and bum you out! Sure, every couple has their challenges to work through, but a healthy relationship has its fair share of light and enjoyable moments mixed in as well.

If you do find one or more of these trouble signs in your relationship, don’t get upset about it, take this as a wake up call and DO something different.

Without blame, get to the root of the conflict or unhealthy habit. Even if your partner refuses to talk about what is causing problems in your relationship, you can start doing things differently which can have positive side effects.

You can set boundaries when they are needed or respond to a triggering situation in a new way. You can be more honest, even when it’s uncomfortable and you can create agreements that will help you and your partner build trust and re-connect.

You can also make sure that the time you do spend together-- whether it’s texting, emailing, skypeing or in another way-- is focused and includes plenty of opportunities for romance and fun!
