Long distance relationships are hard – there’s no doubt about it. You need strength, determination, constant communication and a clear goal in mind. Chris and I spent just under three years dating long. Over those years we picked up a number of helpful hints and tips that not only aided are relationship stronger, but we wish we had known a little earlier.
In this video we highlight 5 of the most important things that we learnt throughout our LDR. While every couple is different, we wanted to share these pieces of advice with anyone going through similar struggles. Whether it’s a particularly hard time difference, loneliness or just the lack of physical connection, these tips will help you power through the tough times.
Our LDR Advice
So what exactly is our advice? Our top 5 tips include communicating frequently & on an emotional level, understanding the importance of physical contact and clearly setting out your goals. While goals are not the first thing that you should discuss, they are certainly important – especially when you become serious.
Who is willing to make the move? How often will you see each other? Who is financially able to afford more of the trips? These are the kind of questions you need to ask in a successful LDR. Discover more advice in the video below.
