Let’s face it: finding love in Uni is hard.
Sure, there’s a huge dating pool to swim in, but that doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find someone but if you do have a significant other already, go you! Now here’s how to stay “double” till school reopens.
Check in and catch up with each other every day. Be sure to have time to catch up with each other at the end of each day whenever possible. Block out at least 30 minutes at the end of each day to catch up with what is happening in each other’s world. Build on your “love map” as you grow in your understanding of your partner and what he or she is experiencing each day.
Find ways to be a happy person even if you are not together. Do not wait to be together to enjoy your life.
Relationships don’t make people happy. People make themselves happy. Happier people are more fun to be around. Find ways to make yourself happy and enjoy your life so that you have positive energy to contribute when you connect or are together.
Keep track of each other’s social media activities.
Like each other’s photos on Facebook and Instagram. Tweet at each other. Tag each other. Share things on each other’s walls. Show that you care. Be cool about stalking each other.
Enjoy The Benefit Of It.
Well yes, there are actually benefits to long distance relationships.
Long distance relationships force you to be independent in the relationship, you have more time for study and your social life and when you do get to see each other you make the most of your time together.
You need to be constantly injecting positive energy into the long distance relationship to keep it alive. Yes, the waiting can be painful and you can sometimes feel lonely but you need to remind yourself that the fruits at the end will be sweet as heaven. One good trick to staying positive is to be grateful all the time.
