Are you confused about your long-distance relationship? Tips to make it easier

Make your long-distance relationship successful

It has been a conventional idea that long-distance relationships are hard to carry out, but what exactly does that mean? What are the intriguing problems? Can they be fixed, or are most long-distance relationships doomed to fail in the end?

Long-distance relationships are difficult to maintain. And there are certain issues in long-distance relationships that don't impact same-town relationships to the same extent.

Here are some certain issues and their solution which are common in long distance relationship:

1. Feeling like you have nothing to say

Have you ever gotten into trouble and had trouble finding things to talk about with your distant loved one? Have you ever felt heartache about wanting to be with your partner, but also felt like you're going through the same old, tired conversations over and over again when you're on the phone?

This is one of the most common problems in long distance relationships.


  1. A simple short-term solution to this problem is to think of a few questions to ask your loved one!
  2. Another helpful tip is to  relax while doing it. It is normal. Don't let that put you off.

2. Spending all of the time on your partner

In a new long-distance relationship, spending long hours each day on the phone creates an intensity that can push you too fast and lead to intense communication patterns that are difficult to change later. In a mature long-distance relationship, one shouldn't spend the whole day talking to the partner. This imbalance will only hurt you in the long run.


Try to speak, write and type at a balanced and steady pace, and make sure you always devote your energy and time to other important things in life.

3. You Need an Instant Response

Have you ever sent a text message and then stared impatiently at your phone, waiting for an instant reply?

This type of need and pressure is not good for your long term relationship  and  is a sign that you are not feeling very secure in yourself or in the relationship.

4. Holding on for the rest of your life

Stuck in life? Are you always going in circles? This will only make you more depressed in the short term and harm you in the long run.

Don't spend every free minute talking to your partner. You cannot completely rely on your partner to make you happy.

Do things that make you feel healthier, wiser, and happier. Do things you find interesting.
