Long distance relationships

Long distance relationships

By Uktong Team 10/18/2017

Ok, so it happened, you fell for a girl/guy who lives miles away.

Pretty much everyone tells you not to invest in that relationship too much because it never works. Well, guess what it does, for many people around the world.

Well, it happened to you and here are a few things anyone in such situation might find useful.

 Define your relationship

So you are at the beginning of such relationship. Define it! Is it going to be exclusive or both of you are going to date other people as well? Is it going to be monogamous or not? Be honest with yourself and your partner. Communicate regularly on the subject like this, because as the time passes you might want to change the way as it was at the beginning. Make sure that your expectation meets because that is the only way the relationship will have a future.

 Do things together online

 Well, you can't go to the movies or theatre together but you can do plenty online. Watch a movie together and later talk about it. Or play an instrument for each other. Read same books.


Visiting it as often as you can. Discuss your plans, because at some point one of you will be able to visit more and vice versa. Try to take to most of the time you spend together. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Do things as you would normally do if you were living in the same city. Enjoy it!

 Talk dirty

Sex is a very important part of every relationship, so it isn’t easy to keep the spark when you are miles away. Don’t be shy. Send provocative messages, flirt, be cheeky.

 Make plans for the future

 Well, none of the previously mentioned is needed if you guys do not plan to have future together. Otherwise, it is a waste of time. Discuss where you would like to live together. See if you fit in each other visions of the future. No one knows (as in regular relationships) if it is going to work out, so enjoy as long as it lasts.
