Dating someone long distance Freenudewebchat
It has been on my heart to share with you some of the things we’ve learned from living 878 miles away form each other for our ENTIRE dating relationship.
I would like to state a couple disclaimers before you continue reading.
We swapped emails and phone numbers, not having any clue that our wedding in Hawaii would be less than three years later. I firmly believe that you can make anything work if you want to. I wont lie – long distance for 18 months was incredibly hard, but we made it work by maintaining: We spoke every day.
I got an amazing phone plan where I had unlimited calls to international mobiles, and we would talk for hours.
At 20 years old and heading into my last year of college, I knew that my now husband, Reese, and I were ready for marriage.
Sure, I was young and marriage isn’t easy, but thanks to more than three years of long-distance dating, we both had the chance to develop healthy relationship skills that made marriage far less intimidating.
Every dating relationship should have moments that feel like a vacation. During your visits, carve out some time to do the things that feel more like “real life.” Maybe complete a household project or serve someone together.
We have a pretty incredible story – so I’m told – which included pulling off one of the greatest long distance relationships ever, being almost 15,000 kilometers apart. Before we knew it we had spent hours talking to each other and laughing together, and found ourselves sitting beneath a starry African sky in the early AM hours.
Dinner had turned into breakfast and we forced ourselves to say goodbye before heading towards separate flights. If you truly want something to work, and you put everything you have into it, you’ll be surprised at what you can accomplish.
If you, like me, dedicate a large portion of your time to travel, and spend more time traveling than you are resident in your own country, you’re more than likely to meet someone overseas.
Which is a pity, because long distance relationships don’t work, right? I swear I will hit the next person who tells me that long distance relationships NEVER work out…and there have been many.
Circumstances may have geographically separated you for a period of time, but you are committed to being together indefinitely once you are able. So you can’t have the same expectations as a normal relationship.
