Long distance relationships are never easy; if the right things aren’t done the trust and love that previously existed in that relationship would die gradually till a point that it cannot be resurrected.
A fan asked for ways to show her partner that she still loves her man even if she’s afar and it prompted me to write this article. There is this big gap that exists when partners are far apart but it all depends on the couple to close that gap or let the gap divide them.
I have 5 ways you can still prove to your partner that you love him or her no matter the distance.
1. FREQUENT COMMUNICATION
The success of a distant relationship boils down to how frequently the couple communicate; communication is everything in a relationship and frequent communication is more than everything in a long distance relationship. If you don’t communicate frequently with your partner, jealousy and distrust would begin to step in.
2. LET YOUR PARTNER INTO YOUR DAILY LIFE
This is also another way to prove to your partner that you still care. I have a female friend who stays far away from her man; they work in two different cities and see each other no more than three times a year; the hard work they put in their relationship is one I’ve never seen before; she lets her man into every part of her world; she does this because she knows he’s a jealous lover and if she doesn’t put that effort it might ruin the relationship. My point is let your partner into your life no matter the distance and it would be like you never left.
3. DON’T FORGET TO ALWAYS SAY HOW YOU FEEL
It’s normal to miss your partner when he or she is far away but keeping such feelings to yourself can make you get frustrated and it can also keep your partner frustrated as well. Never fail to always tell your partner how much you miss him/her; this would keep the passion in the relationship alive.
4. BE SUPPORTIVE
Everyone has dreams, everyone have aspirations and everyone would love it if they had someone that can be supportive of them so that they can reach such heights that they want to attain. You can show your partner that you really care by being supportive of their aspirations and that person would forever believe that you do care.
5. BEING A SHOULDER
You can still be a shoulder for your partner to lean on no matter the distance. Sometimes your partner might be emotionally down or frustrated at work or even by family or anything; in this situation when your partner is worried about something all you need do is be that listening ear because that’s all your partner needs at that time and your partner would love you the more.
If possible, couples can make time out for them to meet; inasmuch as communication is key it doesn’t beat the physical presence of your partner; this would add a lot to the passion in that relationship.
If you are in a long term relationship, this is probably all you need do to show your partner how much you do care.
