They say that absence makes the heart grow fonder and there is nothing like distance to make you feel truly bonded to someone. However. Is a long-distance relationship right for you? Find out if it's worth navigating the many challenges of long-distance relationships with these eight. Here is some advice and suggestions to making a long distance relationship work. This article will cover relationships that require more than a.
Can you handle days of not communicating? This may happen more often than you think because you both have your own lives to live. Fidelity and the Physical Aspect In my opinion, the physical need is what ends most committed long distance relationships. I think that's the biggest problem because relationships emphasize the need for it.
There's no hand holding, cuddling, kissing, and other intimate gestures. Also, I think it is safe to say that while being in a long distance relationship, you will not be having sex as much as you would like. You have to put in a lot more effort in other parts of the relationship to compensate for the physical aspect. Many people think they can be happy without the physical aspect of a relationship, but when they are in the middle of a long distance relationship, urges can become seemingly insatiable.
This can lead to a break up, or worse, infidelity. You really have to consider how long you can wait for physical interaction with your lover. Then you must consider if you can afford to visit them as often as you feel is necessary. And if you can't, will you be able to wait and stay in control of your urges? Remember that life can get in the way of seeing each other, but seeing each other is a must.
Keeping Things Exciting Having excitement in any relationship can be difficult after being together for awhile, but is even more difficult for people in long distance relationships. After awhile it seems like all you ever do is just talk, so how do you add some spice to the relationship while being so far apart? The best way to do this, in my opinion, is by sending her presents.

Usually, they are things she needs, but doesn't feel like investing in them at the moment. For example, she didn't have a car charger for her phone, so I got her one as a surprise. I told her that I got her something and to check for a package on the estimated date of arrival. I save the more intimate and thoughtful presents for important dates, such as anniversaries and other celebrations.
Remember to remember those special dates! Another way to spice things up is by using technology.
You can have date nights through a webcam. Being able to converse through a webcam is definitely more interesting than on the phone. You get to see the person you love, how they smile, all their gestures, and all of the other sweet things you love them for.
Another date night idea are movie nights. My girlfriend and I both have Netflix accounts, and watch shows and movies together while being on the phone. It might seem counter productive to watch something while on the phone, but it's nice to be able to share an occasional comment about the movie or show. For example, we like to watch The Walking Dead together and I enjoy hearing her reaction when the characters are in extreme danger.
And finally, and to be direct, phone sex is a sexy way to keep things interesting. Even then, you can never be sure what will happen or what they will do with the things pictures, videos, etc. You should try your best to really figure out what kind of person they are before sharing nudes or other personal things about yourself, because if you unfortunately break up, they may still have those pictures or videos.
That's something to really think about. Communication Communication is the most important part of a long distance relationship. In essence, that's all you and your partner have.
You have to be able to talk about anything and everything.
