Distance means so little when someone means so much.

A long-distance relationship... Some don't even want to give this concept a chance, because they think it is the beginning of the end. However, with the right mindset, you'll realize that this is worth a shot. Believe me, I know all about it

1. COMMUNICATION IS KEY

Just imagine, your boyfriend/girlfriend is so far away from you and there's no communication whatsoever... It's a way to get a broken heart soon. Communication is a very important aspect of a relationship. Even if it is not a long distance, you need to feel like you are a part of your significant other's life. If that's not the case, you must confront them about it. Always be honest about everything... Start with a "good morning" text and try to message them or even call them now and then to check how they are. This way your partner will feel loved and you will as well. This only makes the relationship stronger, because you feel like you belong in your partner's life and you give them the right amount of attention!

2. SET BOUNDARIES

It is important to know where you guys stand in the relationship. Set clear boundaries to know what is okay to do and what is not okay. The love of your life will probably be miles away and you can't check on them every single minute. Therefore, you must set boundaries, so bad thoughts won't give you useless stress. Boundaries on what is okay and what is not will give more clarity in the relationship and will make your relationship stronger because you both know what you want.

3. PLAN A DATE TO MEET UP

A long-distance relationship can be difficult. There's no denying in that. However, you can make it more durable by setting the date where you'll be seeing each other again. It's a perfect way to keep the excitement in the relationship because you have something to look forward to; because you can hold your loved one in your arms again, kiss them and enjoy their lovely cuddles. In addition to this, it can also help to decrease the endless empty feeling, because you miss them. I'm not saying it will be gone completely, because believe me, it won't, but it could help, because you can count the days 'til you'll see your one and only again.

4. FUTURE PLANS

Before you even start the long-distance relationship together you really must think about it if this is even worth it to start. Because it can be a hard experience for both of you. Look at the future, do you want your current loved one to be in it? Do you see a beautiful wedding, a house and maybe even wonderful children? It's totally worth it. Are you doubting if this is the one you've been dreaming about all along? Think about it even harder. Once this is started, it can be hard to let go. It's a difficult decision, but you must know what your heart can take and if it's ready to commit to such a hard decision.

5. ALWAYS STAY POSITIVE

It's easier said than done, but negativity won't get you anywhere in a long-distance relationship. Both of you must try to make the best of it. That's why it is important to stay positive. The most relevant thing is that you stay honest with each other. If you can't take this kind of relationship anymore; don't lead anyone on. It's the best way to end it, even though it will hurt you both. Honesty and positivity are one of the best ways to make any relationship work. Of course, there's not always positive vibes, but that's part of being in a relationship. If it's meant to be, it will be.

Distance never separates two hearts that really care, for our memories span the miles and in seconds we are there. But whenever I start feeling sad, because I miss you, I remind myself how lucky I am to have someone so special to miss.

Lots of Love,
