5 things you should not do in a long distance relationship
Being in a long distance relationship is a lot more difficult than being in a relationship with someone whom you meet every day.
You need to put in a lot of efforts and have patience to keep your relationship going.
Physical presence of your partner does make a lot of difference as you have someone who constantly ignites the fire of love within you.
When you stay at a distance from your partner, you do feel a little lonely at times and wonder whether it is worth the pain. The truth is that if you really want it to work, it will work.
Having said that, there are a few things you must steer clear of when you are in a long distance relationship.
Here are 5 things you should not do in a long distance relationship:
1. Calling all the time
You tend to miss your partner when they are away from you. You want to talk to them and call them multiple times.
While it is imperative for you to check on your partner’s well being, you must understand that they must be busy with a lot of things in a day hence, if you call them all the time they could get disturbed.
2. No response
As you both cannot meet each other in person, you need to interact through messages, emails or phone calls. When your partner sends you a message, they expect a reply from you.
If you do not reply to their message, they could get anxious and worry about you. Also, not replying to someone’s message makes you come across as an ill mannered person. Even if you are busy with something, reply as soon as you manage to find some free time.
3. Being clingy
You need to put more effort in a long distance relationship than you need to in a normal relationship. But, that does not mean you will cling to your partner all the time.
Calling them or texting them a couple of times a day is fine but there must be a limit to your calls and messages. You must not buzz them to the point of annoying them.
4. High expectations
When you are in a relationship with someone who lives in the same city as you do, you expect them to surprise you regularly and do things for you to make you feel special.
You have to be little realistic with your expectations when you are in a long distance relationship. You must not forget that your partner is far away from you and they cannot do the things that perhaps our friends’ partners do for them. That does not mean they love you any less.
5. Not sorting out issues
Every couple goes through their set of issues. You can have some trouble or fight with your partner even when you are far away from them.
In a long distance relationship, sorting out issue becomes all the more important as you both are at considerable distance from each other and if you do not resolve your differences, it could lead to a breakup. When you are physically close to each other, you can afford not to talk to your partner for some time as you are upset.
But, doing such a thing in a long distance relationship can cost you dearly.
