     Being in a long-distance relationship can put a strain on you and the relationship, but if you are with the right person and you work on it together, your relationship can withstand distance.

     Communication is an important factor in keeping long distance relationships healthy and strong. No matter how minuscule the detail in the story may be, it should matter to your partner. For example, you can tell them about when you were in yoga class and you accidentally farted, but no one heard you. Maybe you overheard some juicy gossip in class and you want to share it. Since you two are not in the same area, you don’t get to share the day or experience the same things.

     Always stay in contact to keep your partner from feeling jealous or lonely. My partner and I have been together for four years, but I still feel lonely and jealous sometimes. Since long-distance relationships rely heavily on texting, calling and facetiming, when your significant other doesn’t contact you, then you worry. We tell ourselves they’re busy, but the little voices in our heads tell us they might be with someone else. You have to learn to ignore these voices and trust your partner. These situations happen because of lack of communication.

     We all love to go out and drink, but it can be challenging to text your partner all night.

     The best way to deal with this is to tell your partner that you got to the party safely and will text them when you get a chance or if something comes up. This works because your relationship is built on trust and they know that when you get back home, you will tell them about your night out.

     Humans have sexual needs and this can be an issue when your partner isn’t there to help you out with them. To end my day, I typically facetime my partner to finally give them all my attention. I talk about my day, what I had for dinner and start to tell them how much I miss them. Some people are not comfortable with the idea of video sex, phone sex or sexting, but it can be a relief when you and your partner try it out. It may feel uncomfortable at first, but you must remember that you can feel safe with your partner. I like to tell them what I miss about them and then transition into telling them what I want to do to them sexually when I get see them. After that, everything else is fair game (like masturbation or dirty talk). The end goal is to feel closer with your partner.

     No one ever said that long distance relationships are easy. There’s a lot of work involved. Whether it is planning a weekend together, scheduling a phone call together or sending out a text, it is always the thought that counts. You must remember that all of the work that goes into maintaining a healthy relationship will benefit you both in the end when you are finally together in the same place at the same time.
