Long Distance Relationship

How to Save Your Long Distance Relationship

Amongst the lovey-dovey relationship goals, the long-distance ones are perhaps the most sought after, presently- owing to the highly career driven lifestyle. When everything falls into the right place with the perfectly imperfect person, little do we consider the toll that distance can take on this ‘oh-so-perfect’ relationship! Though it is not the dreamy sequence of your relationship, yet, for some it brings out the strongest bonds while for the rest it’s the rock bottom. Before you term it as the die cast by destiny, or ‘just wasn’t meant to be,’ let us just give it one more try, and not give up all at once. Here’s a short list of relationship goals as well as keys to make it work with your loved one, even staying miles apart.




Expectations are to be clearly stated

Romantic duos have a real rough patch dealing with the expectations of each other. It is still alright and communicable for those staying in the same city, as they can sort it out some or the other way when they meet. In case of long distance relationships, where meeting in person is a once-in-a-while condition, setting the ground rules for a relationship is of prior importance. Each of you needs to clearly know what the other expects. Do make it a point to list commitment at the top of your priorities, as this can be the only way to reassure your partner that it is always meant to be.

Less is more

As far as communication is concerned, do remember that less is more for a long-distance relationship. Calling up every now and then may not always be the gesture that you miss your loved one, instead, it can turn out to be over-imposing your partner with possessiveness. You got to be creative while you talk, otherwise after a long day at work, your partner might not feel like only answering a queue of ‘How’s’ and ‘Why’s’. Yet again, don’t keep it as a loose end, where one feels neglected or taken for granted. It has not to be long phone calls every time, try recording a short video or audio clip saying about your new place or simply that you miss her. Greeting each other at the mornings and nights are never counted as cliché or sticky and a love-struck gesture instead.

Talk it out

Be it the socializing plans at the new city, or be it the much deprived of sexual feelings of yours- try to talk it off always. It is much obvious that you would have plans of partying and short trips with the new people. Do make sure, you let your partner know about your late-night or trip plans when they are decided. It is really important to not make your partners feel left out, when you are not in the same city or country with them. Even the sex talks are necessary. It is not about getting dirty over phone or texts; sexual attention can keep you both glued to each other at the toughest of situations. It also rekindles the spark and unexpectedly brings the partners closer enough fulfilling their emotional desires.

Try to share your ‘we times’ rather ‘me times’

A key way of staying tuned on the same page is by sharing your leisure hours. It is never the distance that really matters; it is about going an extra mile to make it work. As you may keep busy all day long, for the entire week, not being able to give that attention to your partner, so you need to work it out at the leisure hours. Playing the same game online or watching the same sitcoms or songs in YouTube at the same time washes away the imprints of long-distance.




Other than these few tips, there can be numerous personalized ways to stay glued even when miles apart. Making up plans to visit each other and saving for that is also a way to stay connected rather glued with desires in a long-distance relationship. They say, ‘real gold is not afraid of the test of fire,’ and that it is not always distance behind every break-up on this planet. So, don’t give up on your ‘us’ and work your ‘me’ when you tend to lose hope on your once-perfect part of the world.

How to enjoy this valentine’s day with your single relationship status?

Single in this season of love and don’t know how to celebrate this valentine’s day with your single relationship status? No Bae to spoil and have fun with this Valentine’s day? Who said that the singles could not have memorable Valentine’s day – after all, loving must begin from oneself before it can go to other people, right?




Here are some fun ways to make your Valentine’s day fun, happy and lovely:

  1. Singles Party!!! You are not the only one who is single on Valentine’s day and these parties are not the only terrific way to spend this love-filled day but also a mushy opportunity to meet other potential baes. And what’s a better way to spend the day than with your other single friends who you cant really hang with when in a relationship.singles party
  2. Do something adventurous! Like get a tattoo or go parasailing or take a hot air balloon ride. Spend time with yourself indulging in an activity you always thought you needed company for, and see how your body and mind are enough for you, even when the adrenaline is running high. Earn the experience of being on your own even when you think you need someone to hold hands with or share the feeling.
  3. Have a paintball or lasertag session with your single friends. These games are jubilant bonding activities, and there is just not enough time in routine life. If you are a more indoorsy person, have the singles over for rounds of Uno or some board games and compliment with food and drink. If none of your friends is single, go for these things anyway, because sometimes its fun playing with total strangers!
  4. Watch a movie – at home or cinema halls, scary or romantic, alone or with a group of other singles. Do a movie marathon and tick off all the pending movies you have wanted to watch all this time but could not.
  5. Do some volunteering! Not everyone has someone to love them and might need your help in feeling better – yes, we are talking about the under-privileged people and animals who might benefit from your benevolence and smiles on Valentine’s day. Go volunteer at an animal shelter or orphanage or old age homes and bring some love into a few lives.
  6. Go for wellness treatments. Not feeling too good being single? Missing someone long lost? Don’t let the blues ruin your mood but, instead take massage and spa you have been longing for quite some time. Let your body and soul feel nourished and happy. You can also plan a long run, an intense gym session or more extended Yoga and meditation to feel energised and powered. Post workout or the wellness treatment, go for a leisurely meal and enjoy the high exercise has given you.
  7. Help the couple! We all have friends who unlike us are in a relationship but have kids and don’t get enough time for one another. Help those needy couples and babysit their children for a couple of hours and put smiles and stars back into their eyes. Be a loving friend and give the couple time out!

This Valentine’s day, have more fun being single!
