Being in a long-distance relationship (LDR) is tough all year round, anyone in it can tell you. It is especially difficult during the holiday season. You can’t do any of the festive things that you’d love to do with your partner, like curl up in front of a Christmas movie marathon.
Instead of letting the distance bring you down, try focusing on the little things you can do now to create the future. Focus on things that’ll have you and your partner are in the same place.
Vary your methods of communication
If you have been in an LDR with your partner for a while, then you’ve probably found a way of communicating that works for both of you. It could involve texting throughout the day or video chatting every weekend.
In 2017, try spicing things up a little, add apps you don’t normally use into the mix. Swap texting for a voice message over WhatsApp, or photos for a video over Snapchat. You’ll both enjoy the element of surprise that this brings to your usual routine.
