In the world of online dating, long distance relationships are more common than most people think. Meeting people from all over Australia is at everyone’s fingertips, and who says that your soulmate has to live next door?
They could even be across the globe!
Be the case as it may, online dating has produced more long distance relationships than ever, and people have become increasingly interested in finding the right ways to make them work.
Today we’ll take a look at how Aussies can make their long distance relationships survive all the ups and downs that are associated with the notorious “out of sight – out of mind” scenario.
Tip #1: Make Sure You’re On The Same Page
It takes two to tango and it definitely takes two to make a long distance relationship successful. In order to come out on top, you need to make sure you and your partner are on the same page.
This entails making plans together and setting the same goals.
Your primary goal should be to be together no matter what.
Once you establish this goal you need to make a detailed plan on how you’re going to get there. Create a timeline of all the things that need to take place before the two of you can finally live together.
Come to an agreement with your partner regarding what each needs to do to meet this goal, and get cracking!
Tip #2: Make Travel Arrangements Together
Traveling with a partner is one of the most satisfying and relaxing things people in relationships can do. Seeing the world together and sharing those experiences can enrich your relations and bring you closer together.
Even if you can’t live in the same city at the moment that doesn’t mean you can’t visit another place at the same time and meet up there, even if it’s just for the weekend.
Whether you meet halfway between your home and your partner’s or you make vacation plans together, traveling together is definitely something that keeps long distance relationships alive.
Keep in mind that when you’re away with your long distance partner seeing the world or soaking up the sun on a beach somewhere, you’ll definitely feel like a regular couple as every night you’ll go back to the same hotel together!
Tip #3: Talk As Often As You Can
You might not be able to go to the movies together, but you can definitely have dates. Online dates, that is. Treat those dates as you would an offline date, and you’ll make your relationship that much stronger.
Set up a time to meet and never cancel, like you wouldn’t a movie or a dinner date.
Do this as often as you can while in the meantime you text and send flirty messages throughout the day, like you would if the two of you lived in the same city.
Talk to your partner about your day as if they were sitting right next to you. Treat every aspect of your relationship like you would a non long distance relationship, and you’ll be that much closer to meeting your goal.
