Long distance relationships are hard but with a little effort, they usually work out. We’ve seen plenty of people get into long distance relationships and eventually get married and live happily ever after. So if your goal is to have a lovey-dovey long distance relationship, then you should be prepared to tackle all problems that come with it. We have discussed a few of these problems and how to tackle them.
He promised to Skype you at 10pm when he got off work but he never logged in. He takes too long to reply your text messages. Your calls always go to voicemail and he takes forever to return them. He promised to come this weekend but he never made it. Frustrating right? Couples who live in close proximity sometimes get into some nasty arguments. For long distance couples, this factor is multiplied several times over. So how do you deal with this issue?
The only way to deal with this issue is to talk it out. The next time you are on the phone with him, don’t just go on and on about what’s going on in your lives; get into the real issue. Talking about your fights can go a long way into helping you resolve them. In fact, it can help you see your boyfriend’s point of view and why he behaves the way he does.
It’s okay to get a little jealous once in a while. Your man might have a better job or live in a better place or he might just be mingling with people who are more fun than you. Jealousy only becomes a problem when it borders on two extremes: neediness and ignorance. So how do you deal with jealousy?
You need to work on your insecurities. If you feel threatened by the fact that he has a great job or you are jealous of whom he’s mingling with, then you are definitely insecure about yourself. One more thing to keep in mind is that you have to express your jealousy so that it does not “boil” in your mind. Talk to your man about how you feel and if he truly cares about you, he will avoid potential jealousy situations.
