Keeping the Love Alive in Long Distance Relationships

By February 22, 2013

Follow me on:

Long distance relationships seem to be a theme among my closest and dearest: my sister's husband is a military man, a good friend has a movie producer for a partner, and my Dad was a truck driver.

In each of these relationships, both partners have struggled (at times) to keep the love alive. It's difficult to stay connected sometimes to someone who lives mere minutes away, much less a partner who is stationed overseas or works remotely. Yet people in long distance relationships do it every single day. Some even manage to have "dates" together, which I find admirable.

Have you been in a long distance relationship? How have you managed to keep the love alive?

with e-mails, texts, long phone conversations, and asking questions of what each other is doing at that time. Tried to read a book together and then discuss it, or watch the same movie at the same time…that didn’t work. It’s really difficult….lots of past jealousy and fear that one is going out with another….had to agree to trust each other!
