|The longer the distance affects you, the worse for the relationship. Of course, distance relationships have a chance to survive even five years, but with each month of separation the likelihood of break up increases. For example - the distance affects only 50% of relationships break ups if they last one year- but as much as 95% of couples break up after 5 years of being separated for so long. Therefore, the first principle is the pursuit of a solution to this obstacle, as soon as possible. If there is no chance that in the near future you live closer each other, the prospects of making this relationship last are low.|
Strive for common meetings, but not with the expense of your emotions balance. It’s a great idea to swap visiting duties every time- if possible. But if you’re the one doing more, you should probably show a bit less interest - even if it means fewer meetings. If you’re the one to travel more often, because the other person is too lazy, it can easily lead to the collapse of the balance of feeling and, consequently, to the break up of the relationship.
Instead of telephone calls or text messages, you should talk via Skype. It’s better to talk even briefly and see each other on a screen than exchange a few messages. In this way it is easier to maintain and develop the relationship between you. Skype conversation is almost like a mini meeting. Meanwhile, writing text messages or chatting on Facebook, you do not see your emotions, so the communication channel is very limited.
Do not ever force the other person to contact you. If they don’t want to talk to you or don’t want to meet even if you planned a meeting, it makes no sense to argue over it. You cannot convince them to do anything by force. Requiring your partner to do something that is against their will, shows in a very negative way how much you care about them and simply breaks the balance of feelings. This principle applies to almost every relationship - though people who live in long distance relationships often make this mistake.
Distance relationships are very susceptible to jealousy. It is natural that if you are nor around, your boyfriend or girlfriend will want to go out and meet other people. The guiding principle in this case is to give them freedom. Pretensions and prohibitions won’t stop your partner from cheating on you. In addition, you will make that person lie to you and not tell you about them going out. Besides, showing jealousy is another negative way to show how much you care and loose attractiveness.
