They aren’t lying when they say a long distance relationship can be difficult. You don’t meet each other for months sometimes when all you want to do is stay close. You miss your coffee dates, the little getaways and all those secret makeout sessions, but now you appreciate each other more and learn to find new ways to keep the spark flying.
Everyone in a long distance relationship is thankful to technology. From FaceTiming with your boyfriend at work to constantly telling each other the happenings of the day over WhatsApp to sending each other memes on Instagram, there are ways to be emotionally close to each other, if you’re physically apart.
If you’re getting short on things to say to each other, then let us give you some cues. Here are some adorable messages to send to your boyfriend when you’re missing him a little too much. These will definitely make his day!
1. ‘This Christmas, I’ll ask Santa to wrap you up and send you straight to me. A pretty bow would be a nice idea…’
Tell him he’s the best gift of your life!
2. ‘Why do you have to be so awesome all the time – makes the distance even worse!’

You may have his heart, but there are some people who will have something you don’t - his presence.

You don’t need distance; you need him.

All it’ll take is a minute for him to imagine you and lose his mind doing so!
Like we said above, long distance relationships require more work than other relationships. You’re constantly battling not only the distance, but also the naysayers who keep reminding you of how difficult things are. But it is important for you to ignore them ‘coz we’re sure you want to make it work despite the hard days. So here are some tips on how to make your relationship stand the test of time and distance.
Embrace The Distance: It is the classic case of seeing the glass as half empty or half full. Instead of constantly complaining about the distance or seeing it is an obstacle, make it a point to see it more positively. Think about the excitement you’ll feel when you two finally meet or all the times you’ll be able to surprise them. Even the whole anticipation of looking forward to talk to them and tell them about your day is something you’ll cherish later. So, instead of complaining about the distance, embrace and enjoy it. After all, distance makes the heart grow fonder.
Never Assume Things: There may be times when there are misunderstandings between you two. Distance opens up the possibility of doubting your partner and constant overthinking about each of their actions. But never jump to conclusions or take any action without hearing their side of the story. There may be some crucial detail you missed that he could help you see and clear all doubts. So, don’t just assume things without asking.
Plan A Lot: A good way to spend your time apart is to anticipate everything you’ll do when you meet next. Plan every last detail that you can. Search up the newest restaurants that you might want to visit or the latest things that are happening around you. You will look forward to the time you two will meet again and this will make the time fly by so quickly that you’ll be together sooner than you realise.
Try And Do Things Together: The biggest drawback of being in a long distance relationship is that you’re no longer able to do all those things you used to do together. But you can always try and have virtual dates. Start watching a show at the same time and discuss it with each other, read a book together and talk about theories. If you try, you’ll find so many activities you can do together that’ll make you feel connected to each other.
Keep Each Other Updated: Make it a point to tell each other about how your day has been and try to share even the minutest details about what’s happening in your life. You may get caught up in your surroundings so much that you may forget to include your partner in it. So, try and make them a part of your everyday happenings as well. They will only thank you for it later and you’ll be closer than ever.
Dirty Talk Will Keep Things Interesting: The importance of sex in a relationship cannot be denied. Every person has needs and it is very difficult for those needs to be fulfilled in a long distance relationship. All your naughty trysts are limited to the few times you meet. This is where dirty talk and sexting comes into play. Phone sex is a great way to get each other going. Dirty messages sent during the day will also keep things hot.
Value Honesty: The one thing that keeps a relationship going is trust and honesty. When you’re together, both things come easy to you. But when you’re apart and not in front of each other all the time, it is only human for doubt to creep in and for you to be sceptic of all things. So in this situation, the one thing you can do for each other is be absolutely honest in all your conversations. This way both of you will find it easier to trust each other and it’ll eventually make your relationship rock solid.
