How To Survive A Long-Distance Relationship

Being in a long-distance relationship can suck. But it can suck way less if you know some easy tricks for avoiding common problems.

Tip #2 : Don’t Be Jealous Of Her Guy Friends
One of the few upsides to being long-distance is that you’re always free to hang out with friends. Your job as the boyfriend is to make sure she knows you’re cool with that — even if her plans involve dudes you don’t know. Trust me, it’ll work to your advantage in the long-run: If you get defensive whenever she wants to spend time with a guy, she’ll assume it’s because you’re not being faithful when you’re around other women. But if you’re cool with it, you automatically seem more trust-worthy, preventing any major jealousy issues before they start. Oh, and women don’t believe in the whole “it’s not cheating if you’re in a different area code” rule.blank

Tip #3: Do Something Together While You’re Apart
You don’t have to be in the same zip code to have fun together. Every Sunday night at 11, my boyfriend and I have a standing date to talk about the latest episode of Breaking Bad. Your “thing” doesn’t have to be a TV series you’re addicted to — maybe it’s watching a weekly movie together via Xbox’s Netflix Party streaming option, or playing Words with Friends — but make sure you have something to talk about that doesn’t involve the words “I miss you.” It’ll make your phone calls a lot more pleasant.

With a multi-million dollar online dating industry it is safe to assume that a large portion of those relationships or matches made via internet dating are actually long distance! Gone are the days when the love of your life lived only 2 blocks away.
