10 Tips For Braving Long Distance Love

Have ‘the talk’

You should probably have a bit of a chat about this giant
elephant of a commitment before you decide to do it. First
and foremost, figure out if this person is actually worth it, if
you aren’t sure…probably not.
And once you do, establish how the whole operation is going
to go down.  How often will you visit each other?  Where is
this relationship going?  Is the long distance permanent or
temporary? What level of commitment will you have? It’s
different for every couple, but you can’t build a house
without some foundation, dammit!

Trust that you aren’t crazy:

Ok, you are a little crazy, but not any more than usual.
They’ll be some crying and moments of weakness where you
think that this whole deal totally sucks and you’ll find yourself
with ice cream, in bed, weeping. The missing is the worst
part, ugh. You’ll survive & you’re totally normal.

Hang out in your hood:

Wallowing in self pity while watching Love Actually can be
cathartic but it’s probably not a great everyday occurrence.
The more active you are, the quicker the time goes. So let
your friends be your friends and pack away those

Be a confident queen bee:

Do you think the queen of all bees has time worry about the
men in her hive messaging her back while they’re making
honey? No, she’s secure enough to know they are hard at
work providing and protecting her sweet ass.  Sometimes
someone doesn’t communicate because they actually do
forget, have lost connection, or are honestly busy. Give your
partner some leeway.  And remember how fucking awesome
you are!

Don’t be a cheater:

Look, people make mistakes, that’s not what this is about.
But, if you or your partner continue to make ‘mistakes’ then
you should question why you are in this relationship in the
first place. Long distance is for the committed.

Little achievements:

Halfway, 3 more sleeps, going for a weekend away. Count
that shit down!

Download as many tools for communication as possible:

We live in a world where we can talk every day, we’re like the
Jetsons! Try – Whatsapp, Skype, Tango, sms, Facebook chat,
Mixt, and the actual telephone.  So send messages and chat
often, none of this nonsense about talking too much. You
find what works for you and do it.

Make dates to hang out online:

Schedule times where you can virtually be together. Make
the same meal and eat it together with a video chat. Or
watch a movie at the same time while smsing. Knowing the
other person is there to talk to makes it feel like you are still
doing the little things together too.


Sexting, phone sex, or any type of sexual communication is
what’s separating your relationship from just being friends.
Plus, pushing your comfort zone in a safe space can bring
your ‘in person’ sexy time to another level of trust and
