Long Distance Relationships
Long distance relationships are becoming more and more common today as online
dating escalates. Long distance relationships are often marked by the
accumulation of an astronomical number of frequent flyer miles and telephone
bills that rival the budgets of third world countries.
There probably isn't much that can be done about the frequent flyer miles
but there are ways of communicating long distance that can be lower cost
or even free so you can trim the phone bills down.
The problem with long distance relationships is that absence does not in
fact make the heart grow fonder. "Out of sight, out of mind" is more often
the case. Keeping the flame of love burning strong and bright is difficult
when the couple is miles and miles apart.
The first step in a successful long distance relationship is an open and
honest discussion of the expectations of both parties. The level of commitment
needs to be discussed. Life does happen on a minute to minute basis. There
will be no room for jealousy. If the couple is not married, should both parties
continue to date others or is the relationship to be monogamous? Honesty
and forthrightness is a must.
Promptness in keeping online chat dates is vital. Promptness in making or
receiving telephone calls is equally important.
In today's remarkably able world of technology, long distance couples can
use their personal computers to see as well as hear each other. The nuances
of communication don't have to be lost. It is wise for the two people in
a long distance relationship to invest the few dollars required to purchase
a web cam and to subscribe to an online service that allows them to talk
as long as they want to and as often as they want to.
Each party should also invest in a camera phone and take pictures of interesting
and important things that happen to them so that they can share them with
their long distance partners. This kind of technology allows couple to remain
involved in the day to day lives of one another even though they are not
Long distance relationships require more thought than relationships that
are close at hand. Couples who are separated by miles can still surprise
each other. They can send a small gift for no reason at all..."I saw this
and thought of you."
Online chats with webcams, instant messaging, phone calls are all important
in maintaining closeness when there are many miles between the two parties
in a long distance relationship.
In order for a long distance relationship to survive both parties must be
able to remind one another why you agreed to the long distance relationship
in the first place. There must also be an end to the separation in sight.
The couple should see each other as often as possible for the duration of
the separation but there should be a specific time when the separation will
end. That makes the long distance relationship bearable to both parties.
