Your elderly relations will probably reason that long-distance relationships are relatively easy to manage in modern times, because almost everyone has access to smart phones where free or cheap telephone calls can be made across the globe. The use of live video across the Internet must be excellent for long distance couples to be able to maintain their relationship. What else can boost your connections?
Video Games Are Exciting
There is a wide range of video games available, that can be shared across the Internet. You can choose word games, card games or battle games, where you can both be live within the game at the same time. This helps long distance couples share fun together and with a separate live link, you can be talking and laughing at the same time.
Don’t Keep Score
Long distance couples do not need to keep score and equate how well one is doing at consistent communication, compared to the other. Just because you have sent 20 text messages in the past week, doesn’t mean that your partner needs to return 20 to you for the relationship to remain equal, unless the score is consistently 19-1.
When you make a video call cross-country or to another part of the globe where your partner is currently residing, you do not have to wait for them to make a return call to you before you can contact them again. There are going to be times when it is easier for one individual to instigate the contact, so it is better that you do not keep score because over the long term, no one wins.
The Little Things Matter
Conversations and communication do not have to be about global environmental problems and how you can stop wars between two countries. These conversations are great, but as life progresses, we all tend to discuss many of the little things that do not really matter, but complete the bond between a couple.
It is essential that you complete discussions about the little things as well as the larger issues because if you were together, in the same city or neighborhood, conversations about the small things would be part of your natural life.
