Cupid’s Advice:

Long distance relationships are tough on the heart.  Is dealing with the separation and fear of doubt worth it? Cupid has some advice on how to make your long distance relationship stronger:

1. Communicate: Talk to your partner about your expectations about the relationship and try to understand each other’s. Discussing the parameters of your relationship will save you the heartache and misunderstanding in the future. So make sure you ask your partner questions like, “What are you looking to get out of the relationship?” or “Are we going to be exclusive?” Don’t be afraid to communicate.

2. Keep the romance alive: Talking on the phone every day can become repetitive and boring, so try other things that can keep the romance alive. If you want to see your partner, video chat is a great alternative to the average phone conversation. Also, try and think of other ways to keep the romance alive such as, sending flowers, watching TV or movies simultaneously together or sending e-cards. Here’s a list of 100 things you can do in a long distance relationship.

3. Take advantage: Being with someone who is close to you in distance can put a strain on your relationships with family and friends, so take advantage of the benefits while in a long distance relationship. You get to spend more time with your family and friends without having to choose, you get to maintain your individuality and when you reunite after being apart you have the opportunity to fall in love over and over again.
