Long distance dating can be tough.  Being in a relationship can be hard enough as it is, but adding distance into the equation can make it ten times harder!  There are certain things you and your boyfriend/girlfriend can do and not do to make your long-distance relationship easier and all around better!

  • DON’T feel the need to talk or text 24/7.  I get it, you miss one another, but being across the country from each other doesn’t mean you need to keep tabs on him/her all the time.  Long-distance relationships need a lot of trust and this helps build that!  Chelsea Crockett - Long Distance Dating 
  • DO make an effort.  The worst feeling is when you feel like you’re putting in more than you’re getting out.  Make sure you’re both making an equal amount of effort!
  • DO keep a positive attitude.  Positivity is everything!  If you really want it to work, don’t doubt and complain about your situation.  Think about the good!
  • DON’T ignore your problems.  Just because you can’t talk in person doesn’t mean you shouldn’t bring up problems or issues.  It’s important to keep a healthy and open relationship whether it’s face-to-face or not. 
  • DO give each other reassurance.  Reassurance is so important when you’re dating someone far away from you.  Knowing that each other is 100% invested and willing to make the relationship work will help through the good and bad times.
