Learning a few good ways of coping with loneliness in a long distance relationship is crucial when the one you love is miles away.

Feelings of deep sadness, frustration and loneliness can hover over you like a veil when you are in a long distance relationship.

I’m going to share a few tips on coping with loneliness in a long distance relationship so you can keep these feelings at bay.

1. Have a Regular Communication Schedule

One of the ways of coping with loneliness in a long distance relationship is to have a regular communication schedule.

Making time to talk on a daily or weekly basis will help you feel connected regardless of how far apart you are.

With time, eventually you will get a feel for how much communication is necessary to keep the both of you satisfied.

Your man should be initiating texts and phone calls just as much as you are.

But if your boyfriend is constantly pulling a disappearing act leaving you lonely and wondering where he is, it's time to reconsider the relationship.

I just hope we last. This age difference is killing us but we love each other a lot and will go through anything.

@Eljesa, Eljesa- You have to focus on the positives of your relationship regardless of how long you have been together! It’s really easy to be overwhelmed by the loneliness and depression that can strike at random but you have to find ways to overcome that. I know how hard it can be-I’ve been in an ldr for almost 8 years!

Thank you! I've been in a long distance relationship for the past 2 years and it is hard work... Great article 😊

It all sounds good, but when you've been in an ldr as long as I have (4 years) none of it helps, it gets harder and harder
