1. Embrace the space
Some couples feel like they have to compensate for the distance by being in constant communication with one another. Live your life and give your partner the space to live theirs. You’ll have more to talk about when you do talk and it will make your communication more meaningful.
2. Be clear about your expectations
What seems obvious to you may not be obvious to your partner. Set ground rules about your expectations as far as communication, commitment, and visiting one another to avoid potential arguments.
3. Proceed with a goal
Before embarking on a long-distance relationship, be clear about what you hope to achieve. Is the eventual goal to live closer together? Is there a time limit to the long-distance aspect of your relationship? Being clear about these goals will help your relationship succeed.
