March 17, 2010 by Susan Murray · 110 Comments 

Now that you have finally met that someone special on a online dating site. You really like this person, and you find that this person seems to match well with many aspect of your life. Unfortunately, this someone is living far away from you. Now you are asking yourself whether this person is worth it for you to spend your time and money on a long distance relationship. What if this person could be your soulmate. You don’t want to miss your opportunity.

You may be surprised how much a relationship can grow if you work at it. You must first learn and apply a few simple rules. You can make your long distance relationship to become one the most successful ever, and you can enjoy a truly happy relationship that you have always desired.

With today’s high speed communication, distance and cost are no longer a huge issues. You can now text each other using cellphone instantly regardless of where you are. Using a computer couple with high speed internet you can do a high quality video chat online virtually free. Of course, there are the traditional older technologies such as your old telephone calls, Instant Messages, or snail-mail. If you use a combination of these communication strategies, you can really foster an enviable intimacy which you can really learn a lot about each other’s values, personalities, qualities, way of thinking, sensitivities, dreams and aspirations. Sometimes you can really develop a special intimacy that you can’t get from a normal in contact relationship.

In general relationship is already complicated enough as it is, having them across a long distance can be challenging sometimes.  Here are some guidelines that can help you get through some of the long distance relationship challenges.

  1. The most important rule for any relationship is communication, that both partners must develop the  ability to share feelings openly with each other. This rule is especially important for a long distance relationship. Do not feel afraid to tell your partner what you really need and want from him or her. They deserve to know the truth and they can judge for themselves of whether they can give it to you.
  2. Make the relationship a high priority. Avoid canceling schedule chats or putting off a phone call.
  3. Start to keep in touch daily. If a large phone bills are a concern, explore the ideas of video chats. You can also use instant message, send e-mail, letters, cards and even faxes. And when you do make contact, don’t just stick to love talk, but keep each other informed on the day-to-day aspects of your lives. This way you each stay aware of how the other is thinking, feeling and developing.  Late-night talks and thoughtful emails and letters can convey a lot of what is most important in the long-term: your goals, values and dreams.
  4. Being flexible can get you a long way. Tell your partner of how much you think about and love him or her will score high points, making them miss you more with the constant urge to see you. But don’t be possessive.  Being paranoid and accusing will only grow doubts, insecurity and tension between you two. These tendencies will not help your relationship to develop successfully.

If your partner truly wants to be with you, they will not want to wait forever to have you next to them. As long as you are both have the trust for each other, informing one another of your personal lives, keep in touch, your relationship will turn out to be a happy and satisfying one.

Ultimately, a normal good relationship is the goal, isn’t it.
