How to Make Your Long-Distance Relationship Work from Admin's blog

Long-distance relationships aren’t easy. With dating apps like Datetivity, and advanced smartphone technology, however, it’s now easier than ever to stay in touch with your date—even if you live on opposite sides of the world. Like any relationship, long-distance dating takes commitment, understanding and, most importantly, flexibility.


As dating experts, we’ve compiled a few tips to help you make your long-distance relationship work:


Refrain from Constant Communication

With the ability to email, text, call, and instant message your date, it’s hard not to want to talk all the time. In a long-distance relationship, it’s important to avoid excess communication. Constantly updating each other about trivial day to day things gets boring, and will quickly suck the spark out of your relationship. Save the important stuff for when you see each other in person.


Stay Optimistic

Learning how to live apart is just as important as learning to live together. Expressing negativity towards your long-distance relationship will only harbour doubt and anxiety. Instead, try to see it as a positive journey, and an opportunity to bring you closer together on an emotional level.  


State Your Expectations

From the very beginning, you and your date should be on the same page. Setting up clear ground rules about what you expect from each other, like how often you should communicate, and whether it’s okay to date other people, will alleviate stress and prevent unwanted surprises.  


Communicate Creatively

Texts and emails get boring—and they’re impersonal. Surprise your long-distance date with a handwritten letter, a package filled with knick-knacks from the last time you were together, or a creative video about what you did that day. Putting in this kind of effort will show that you care, and help strengthen your relationship.


Stay Active, Together

Don’t let distance stop you from being active together. Videocall your long-distance date for a walk in a local park, a hike up a nearby mountain, or a YouTube yoga session in your living room.


Plan Visits

The best part about long-distance dating is getting to finally hug your person (in real life.) Whether you live a few hours away from each other, or on different continents, visits are a highlight for all long-distance relationships. Give yourselves something to look forward to by booking your trip in advance, or surprise your date with an impromptu weekend visit.


Don’t let your long-distance relationship get you down. Use the distance as an opportunity to strengthen your relationship by communicating creatively, doing things together, and planning visits.
