Before beginning a long distance relationship be sure that you love each other 100 % because it takes some real commitment to stay in a long distance relationship and make it last.

Some things you should do to maintain the long distance relationship are to Avoid excessive communication, Set some ground rules to manage your expectations, Try to communicate regularly, and creatively and even Talk dirty with each other at times.

Also send care packages to each other sometimes and even love letters or cards through the standard mail and maybe even visit your boyfriend or girlfriend at least once a year if possible.

There are many thoughts on this. Some people think it's possible, and some people think it's lame. I think it's possible. Such relationships are quite realistic. We live in the 21st century, and therefore different relationships are possible, even non-traditional ones. My girlfriend is in a relationship with her girlfriend at a distance. They met on a special site for lesbian dating This is a great site where anyone can find a couple for themselves.

Not so long ago I realized that I was interested in older partners, I don't know what this might be related to, but I think I am most attracted by their experience and legibility. That is why I often sit on the site to find a partner for the weekend, for example, this weekend I already made an appointment.

It is hard. I am dating a man and I am learning Spanish right now because my bf is living in Span, Barcelona. I met him at where we were chating at the beginning and then decided to met.

he following is a list of things that I have learned from my own experience and the experiences of people who have been in similar situations as me.

1. Be honest about your life situation. Don't create stories around what you think others want to hear. Be real, don't lie to them, and they'll respect you for it.

2. Be patient. Try not to let anything get into your head where you feel like giving up. You're only human, afterall, and no one's perfect. If they are willing to wait for you, then they respect you enough to know that you've got something going on.

3. Don't make promises that you can't keep. If they ask for time off, give them time off. If they need a favor, help them out. They'll appreciate it and won't forget it, even if you say it was nothing.

4. Be grateful for what you have. No matter how much money you make, no matter how many friends you have, no matter how many lovers you still wake up each day and you're still alive. There's always someone worse off than you and it's easy to take for granted what you have, but you never know when it could be taken from you.

5. Have fun. Enjoy yourself. Make sure you're doing good things, whether it's working hard at school, spending time with your family, or just hanging out with the girls. Life's too short to be miserable, especially when you're young.

Stay together and travel to the other place. Always keep contacting and messaging.

I think that long distance relationships and “traditional” relationships share many of the same problems. But the challenges of a couple who are in a long distance relationship are a little different or more intense, and the solutions are usually different too.

It isn’t easy to be in any relationship but those couples who have long distance relationships seem to have even more challenges. When you do run into problems, troubleshoot as soon as you realize things aren’t ok. Keep communicating, reaching out, and inviting connection so you and your partner can get through this together and stronger than ever.

And remember that real love can exist on distance too.
