7 Ways to Prepare for a Long Distance Relationship ...


Learning how to prepare for a long distance relationship is never easy.

My boyfriend is planning on studying abroad in Italy next semester, which means that I won't be able to see him for about 5 months.

Planning ahead for a LDR is going to be hard, but that's why I've come up with my top ways to plan for my LDR relationship.

These tips will help you plan ahead and overcome the hardships that come along with a long distance relationship.

A LDR relationship is never easy, but it is possible and with these tips, it'll help you and your boyfriend get through it!

1. Admit It’s Happening

You will never be able to prepare for a long distance relationship if you are in denial.

Once you start to accept that you will be apart from each other, it will be so much easier to work through the process of being in a LDR.

You can better prepare for what the two of you are going to do.

Talk about It

Hi Linzi! Firstly, make an appointment with him. I know it's weird, but tell him that you want to stay at home, just the two of you. I have a hard time talking to my girlfriend about sensitive issues sometimes too, but when I just tell her I need to hang out with her (don't use, I need to talk to you, it'll make it worst) and then I casually mention it, it usually turns out okay. Give it a try!
My boyfriend and I have been together since November 2011, were both 22 and he's moving to Canada for a year long working holiday and I've really struggled to accept it at first, almost breaking up over it. As scared as I still am that I could get my heart broken, I have decided to stick with it because I ultimately want to end up with him and know I'd kick myself for giving up. He's said all along that he wants us to move in together when he gets back as we were already going to this year before he made this decision. The only problem now is that my initial reaction has made it hard to talk about, how do I casually bring him to see that I'm positive about it now? And how do I reassure myself it's still ok while he's away? I trust him more than anyone but just knowing how wrong I've been in the past shakes my confidence. Any suggestions will be appreciated.
