2. Fixed meeting time
Couples in this kind of relationship need to have a meeting time that nothing should change. A weekend, a month, or any agreed time that both partners need to religiously follow.
Making a promise to be around and failing to fulfil such promise will add extra tension on a relationship that is being stretched already, and you don’t need that.
And every time you come through, you need to come bearing gifts. Thoughtful, beautiful ones. You can’t afford to miss this at any point.
