Long distance relationships are REALLY tough! Ty and I spent the first 5 years of our relationship in one... It was definitely one of the hardest things we've ever had to face together. Looking back we've learned a lot from going through that situation.
1. Commit (Are you in or are you out?)
Prior to entering a long distance relationship, we feel that it is extremely important to decide whether or not it's something you are going to stay true to. Decide whether or not the person you are with is the right one for you.
2. Trust each other
If the two of you have made the choice to commit to one another no matter what, we feel it is very important to trust that each other will remain true to the relationship. Try not to freak out if they're late calling you or has to work late etc. lol
3. Express your feelings to one another
The words "I love you" are soo powerful. Sometimes it's all the person your with needs and wants to hear :) There's no doubt that with long distance relationships come many somber emotions. Sadness, frustration, fear, exhaustion, doubts and some! In the end, it's critical that the person you are with knows how you feel about them.
4. Make the most of your time together
Whenever you get the chance to spend time together, make sure you have fun! It's even great to talk about your future together.
5. Keep moving toward your goal
Take each day one step at a time and make sure your working towards removing the distance between the two of you. If the end goal for instance, is to get married, make a plan that will help you achieve just that :D
Long distance relationships can be a really tough test! Stay prayerful in all things and know that the The Lord knows your heart and will bless you :) Just trust Him!
