15 Ways To Actually Make A Long-Distance Relationship Work

6. Do similar things.

This could be as simple as watching the same movie, TV show, cooking the same meal that night. You name it. This helps when talking to each other and having things to discuss with the same experiences. For example talking about the movie you both watched. If you prefer something more physical that you both want to do try thinking of a new hobby or project you both could learn together how to do.

7. Think “long-term.”

This goes with the commitment part. If you want this to work you need to think in the long run and both of your futures together. Is this the person you want to spend the rest of your life with? Make sure you’re in it for the right reason and that they are too. If this is the case, the distance now won’t matter as much later.

8. Have those dirty talks.

Yep. Do it. It’s nothing to feel embarrassed about. Sexual tension is definitely in every relationship whether far away or not. Sexual desire is like chocolate and peanut butter, they stick together just like relationships do. Not only is sex a biological need, it is an emotional one as well.

9. Always be honest.

Talk to each other about how you are feeling. Don’t hide things or emotions that are running through your mind. Let your partner help you and support you and you do the same for them. Plus, keeping things built up inside just might make future situations worse. Look at this as a chance to test your communication skills and emotions.

10. Know each other’s schedule.

Its good to know when the other person is busy and when you might not get to talk to them. We are humans. We have jobs. We go to school. We enjoy doing hobbies so that means both of you will be busy. Let each other know what your schedule is like so you don’t interfere with the other persons’ when they could be in a class or work.
