How to make remote love work and protect the couple’s relationship?
Does long distance love exist? Of course, many couples live a long distance relationship and manage to carry it out successfully.
It can be difficult to survive the distance and lack, but it is possible not to break the relationship by avoiding the end of the relationship.
Managing a love from a distance requires a lot of patience, willpower, and determination.
Long distance love can last if you can make up for the physical lack by always feeling emotionally close to your partner, without giving in to emotional dependence.
Creating a couple’s routine, even if at a distance, and sharing as much as possible with the other is what it takes to keep love alive even without seeing each other.
Well, girls, know that there are no precise rules on how to do it when living a long distance relationship, or mathematical laws that allow us to know if that particular love story will last or not.
However, it is possible to alleviate the pain and suffering that derive from the lack and try to live as peacefully as possible the condition of a distant couple, even when this status – common to many lovers – is not the result of our choice (precisely as with the current quarantine).
Love from a distance exists, but can it last?
A long-distance love story is as demanding as a relationship lived in everyday life, indeed if possible in some respects it is much more so. When you are away, the small misunderstandings are magnified and it is easy for the tension to take over.
It is difficult to say whether a long-distance love destined to remain so can last a long time. Usually, couples who live in this situation do so for a fixed or limited time. Generally, both sides try their hardest to reunite.
But, what to do when this possibility does not exist and when one is practically forced not to see oneself by force majeure? Today technology comes to meet us and it is possible to feel and see each other in many ways, even if you are far away.
Some of the things some people do in a long-distance relationship are to spend time on the phone, watch movies together online, send each other gifts, etc. There are plenty of creative ways to keep the romance alive when you’re away from your partner.
Especially if the separation happens out of the blue, however, it is not easy to get used to a new couple routine and the physical distance can create havoc. In this case, the willingness of both parties to make things work is important.
Pros and cons of a distance relationship
The idea of living a love at a distance can lead to agitation and concern, especially if it is the first time you are in this situation. The important thing is to know how to manage anxiety and posting stress.
Unfortunately, in fact, very often unconscious mechanisms are triggered: trying in every way to intercept what the other thinks, wondering how to understand if he still loves you or not, negative thoughts about a hypothetical betrayal, and many other doubts that make the relationship of suffocating couple especially for those dealing with an insecure partner.
As in all situations that compete for the relationship of a couple (and not only), we must try to grasp the positive side.
Staying for long periods without seeing each other, of course, makes everyday life very difficult, and the lack of physical contact and intimacy can damage the balance of the couple.
However, spending time apart can help to analyze pre-existing problems in the relationship and, why not, also to question oneself, becoming more independent from the partner and no longer feeling like a puzzle with a missing piece.
From a distance, new forms of emotional area and empathy are experienced
Those who are far from their other half for the first time will experience new forms of intimacy, weighing the value of the person next to them and appreciating the little things that are sometimes unfortunately taken for granted.
Being present with your heart and thought can sometimes be more powerful than being physically close.
