5 ways how to thrive in a long distance relationship
One of the most important things in a long distance relationship is to maintain regular contact. Agree between each of you the ways that you will maintain contact. Agree when and where to call etc.
Respect what you agree to. Make sure that the contact is regular. Text each other often. However, learn to trust each other. Avoid excessive communication. This might lead to the feeling of the relationship being overbearing.
2. Stick to the ‘Do’s and Don’ts.’
In every relationship, there are ‘Do’s and Don’ts’. The Do’s are the things that both of you are comfortable with. The Don’ts are things that one partner is uncomfortable with. In simple, they are called ‘ground rules’. Be honest and stick to them.
Remember to be reasonable and realistic. This way you can ensure that you both of you can manage each other’s expectations in the relationship.

Make sure that the time you spend communicating is creative and brings you together. For example, regular video contacting is a great way to see each other. Be intimate with each other whilst having video contact.

4. Visit Each other
Discuss and arrange to meet each other. It may not be for some time that you can see each other. But plan the trip and get it booked! This brings security in the relationship and something for you both to look forward to.
