Long distance relationship tips

1. Make the most of your long distance relationship time to really get to know your partner

The biggest benefit of being in a LDR is that it forces you to communicate–words are often all you have. You may never again in the course of your relationship have this much focused time and energy to spend communicating with your partner. Use it. If you get to know them deeply and well, that will pay off big time in the long run.

2. Start slow, especially if you haven’t met yet

Don’t bare all too soon (literally or figuratively)! When you meet long distance it can be easy to jump in the deep end and and move too fast in your new relationship. In the early stages of your relationship (the first couple of months at least) don’t rush into vulnerability, set a pattern of talking for hours every day, or make serious commitments.

3. Set up healthy communication patterns early

Talk about how you talk. Discuss and agree on some of your communication basics as a couple–how you generally prefer to connect (phone, VoIP, text), what times, and for how long. This can help set realistic expectations and avoid some miscommunications, frustration, and anxiety.

4. Be open, honest, and “real” in your communication

When you’re in a long distance relationship it’s easier to hide your weaknesses and put your best foot forward. Unless you both value transparency and honesty more than making a good impression, you will have a much more difficult time figuring out whether you and your partner are a good fit for each other.

5. Find new things to talk about

Most couples in a LDR will go through periods where they struggle to find things to talk about apart from how their day was. When these seasons hit, put a bit more effort into finding new and fresh things to discuss.

6. Get creative about connecting (and by “creative” I don’t mean “naked”)

You can share new experiences and build memories together even while you’re far apart. Talking to each other is great, but make that extra effort sometimes to try something new or go on a long distance date.

7. Discuss how you deal with pressure

Sometime when you’re not tired and stressed, talk about how each of you typically acts and reacts when you are stressed and tired. Tell your partner how they can best help you during those times. Ask your partner to share these things with you, too.

8. Discuss your big disagreements in person

Never try to hash out relationship issues via text message – there’s too much room for misunderstanding. If possible, save your serious disagreements for when you can talk them out in person

9. Talk honestly about money

If finances are tight, money can become a major source of resentment–especially if finances are keeping you apart, traveling to see each other is expensive, and/or one partner has to spend a lot more money than the other to keep the relationship going. Tackling this hot topic directly can help avoid assumptions and conflict.

10. Build your love maps

Your love map is your mental network of information about your partner–their interests, stories, what makes them tick, and things you love and admire about them. The more positive memories and associations you build into this love map, the stronger your relationship will be over time.
