A Few Dos and Dont’s for long term relationships

There are a bunch of things that we need to do as well as things that we don’t need to do in order to survive in a long distance relationship (LDR). You’ll read in this article a few things that we have compiled over the years when it comes to LDR Dos and Don’ts.

Although they may appear simple, when it comes to the actual execution, it might take more than your effort and discipline. It is your desire to survive the relationship that makes the most impact in writing the outcome of your LDR. Consider some of the below advice and together with your desire, I am confident that you will be able to conquer your distance relationship with ease and fun.

Some things you should do:


It’s a great idea to build a hobby that the two of you can share together. By building and keeping a hobby, both of you will have something to discuss and work on throughout your LDR. Finding something to do online can be quite interesting judging from its speed and reachability, but never leave out a conventional hobby as well because you don’t need to have your partner’s physical presence to share a hobby.

The very first thing that you must do in a long distance relationship is to establish an effective communication channel. Many people will think that the telephone is the most convenient mode of communication but apart from the telephone services, there are some other alternatives you can utilize. Instant messenger, emails, VOIP phone and conventional mails can be very effective if you know how to use them. The girlfriend activation system channels have its own advantages and disadvantages and therefore you must start to explore each of them to enhance your communication experience.

Some things that you shouldn’t do:


couple yelling at each otherOne of the mistakes that an LDR couple often makes is to settle for a temporary replacement when their significant other is not physically present. By letting a third party into your life, you will not only put your relationship to risk, but you will also break the mutual trust and agreement that you make. Although it may not be done intentionally, this type of mistake will be very costly to your long distance relationship.

Most of the failures in long distance relationships are attributed to the wait and see the attitude of the couples themselves. This is caused by the insecurity of the couple as they do not think that the LDR will work but at the same time, they do not want to put a stop to the relationship. Let me tell you this, if you plan to have this kind of attitude, refrain from walking into one at the first place because both you and your partner will suffer in the relationship. In a LDR, both partners must be committed and proactive in bringing the relationship to a higher level.

There is no room for suspicion in a long distance relationship. In order for you to survive it, you must learn to trust your partner whole heartedly. A single suspicion will break the bond you have for each other and it is a beginning of the end if you start to suspect your partner at any point of your LDR. It is easier said than done but trust me, if your partner is apt to do something unfaithful to you, they will still do it under your nose. Therefore there is no need for you to create such unnecessary stress in your LDR.…


7 New Rules of Dating

Whenever we hear teenagers telling their parents that times are different now, we often roll our eyes in disagreement, laugh and quickly dismiss this (very reasonable) statement as an immature rant from someone who has not seen the world yet,


Actually, it’s true. Times have changed, and with it, several rules in the dating game. Here are a few things you have to remember if you don’t want to be obsolete.

No More Waiting Game.

Gone are the days when you’d have to wait for three days to call or text or private message that hot college professor after your first date. We live in the age of instants and patience is no longer a popular virtue. It may be just a waste of time.

Play Coy At Your Own Risk.

Sometimes, making your new found love interest work for your attention can be worth it. But playing hard to get might just push the person away instead of drawing him closer. It’s always better to try things out and realize it doesn’t work out than forever be haunted by “If only I…”

Be Techie.

Technology provides countless ways to communicate and reach out to people all over the globe. Be familiar with girlfriend activation system and you might just make that long-distance relationship work.

Be Careful What You Share.

mariageIf he is anything sensible, the first thing a blind date would do is Google you and needless to say the results would include everything you post online – yes, all the pictures from that wild Spring break to the mushy, facepalm-worthy (and eventually, maybe really angry) tweets and wall posts between you and your ex. So unless it’s fine by you to be pre-judged, make sure none of your indecent and embarrassing posts are searchable.

Marriage Is No Longer Always the Goal.

Say goodbye to the “spinster” stigma and hello to the “strong, independent woman”. Nowadays, more and more couple are opting to live together, have families and share life without having to marry. Marriage is beautiful but thanks to Hollywood and probably to the tragic divorce stories dominating the news, a long-term happy relationship (even without the papers) is something to be thankful for.

Never Assume Exclusivity.

I cannot emphasize this more. With the internet and all, there are more ways to reach out to potential dates, and multi-dating is slowly being accepted as part of our culture. Hanging out a lot doesn’t mean commitment and showing passion doesn’t mean “in a relationship”. Sometimes, it’s a really good idea to just safeguard your emotions until things (and Facebook status) are clear.

40 is the New 30.

People are becoming more career-oriented and success-oriented than before. Now, men often build businesses and empires in their 20s and then play in their 40s so you might want to widen your dating parameters. After all, the more mature the better the lover.

How about you? What changes have you noticed in the dating scene?
