Here’s How To L.D.R. With Your Other Half
We’d cross oceans... With our screens, that is. It takes work, but here’s how you do distance love.
Chances are you’ve dealt with a continent, ocean or several time zones between you and your S.O. at least once in your life. Maybe you’re living it now. So how do you tackle this mysterious beast of an issue? Take it from someone who spends a chunk of his time traveling for work. We’ve found a few ways to maintain a sense of closeness, no matter the distance. I mean, sure, we’d prefer to be in the same room, but this is the next best thing. So hopefully, these will work for you too.
DON’T DISASTER EACH OTHER
What you do is important, but what you don’t do weighs even more. We don’t have to be in touch a dozen times a time, as it only emphasises the longing and loneliness. We don’t immediately jump to worst-case scenarios when a text isn’t replied within minutes or have a problem with each other socialising with members of the opposite sex. We don’t catastrophise issues that would be negligible if we are in the same city, and we don’t lose sight of the fact that we have and will be together for much longer than we are apart.
