Long Distance Relationships and How to Strengthen Them

Monday, August 3, 2009 | comments

I have had a chance to listen to people who have been in long distance relationships and their views are as varied as the number of the relationships themselves. This for sure remains a thorn in the flesh for many relationships especially if not handled well.

The distance may be caused by one of the parties having to work far away, internet dating or because one of the partners has to go away for further studies. The distance may be between two close towns or across continents.

Whatever the reason or distance, to make the relationship work, the key is commitment. It would be wise for both parties to set guidelines on how they will keep communication lines open, how often they will visit and general expectations of each partner.

By calling often, sending e-mails, visiting each other and updating each other on what is happening on each partner’s end, the partners ensure closeness. It is also important to remember events that matter such as birthdays and wedding anniversary.

If the partners do not commit their time and effort to the long distance relationship, they will end up drawing apart and eventually feel like strangers to each other. This means that the next time they meet they may have nothing much to share and they may even have to start learning each other afresh.

Success stories are told of partners who have weathered the storm of distance in relationships and had their friendship strengthened. These relationships can be used as role models to others.
