So, your ‘the one’ isn’t in the same city or state or country as you are. But you can’t give in to the signs that say it’s time to break up. So, what do you do? Dive into the long-distance relationship because you think you can do it? You can, if you avoid doing all the things on the following not-to-do list.
1. GET JEALOUS EVERY TIME YOUR BELOVED HANGS OUT WITH THEIR FRIEND OF THE OPPOSITE SEX
It’s not hard to understand that both of you have friends. It is hard, however, to listen to your beloved rant about their friends that you can’t even keep an eye on. Hard, not impossible. You chose to be in a long-distance relationship; that means you chose to just listen to how your partner’s day went.
2. KEEP TEXTING YOUR BELOVED EVERY FIVE MINUTES
Even if you love each other, texting the other person after every five minutes will annoy them because you might not know what they are doing that very minute and even if you are missing them, they might not be missing you at that very moment. So, it’s okay if they do not reply for the next…couple of hours. No need to panic and lose hope in your relationship.
3. ASSUME YOUR PARTNER IS HAVING A GALA TIME WITHOUT YOU
Both of you are allowed to have some fun even if you miss each other. Assuming that the other person does not work as hard every day would be a very stupid thing to do. Now that you have agreed to keep dating over the long distance, letting the other have fun without you would be advisable.
4. FORGET THE TIME DIFFERENCE IF YOU ARE SEPARATED BY COUNTRIES
In the beginning of the long-distance relationship, you might lash out on your partner because they did not call or text you when you needed them to. Due to the time difference, both will suffer the need to call but it won’t be the right time for the other person. If the other’s birthday is nearing, do not let the factor of the time difference slip out of your mind. It may slip out of the mind of your partner, though, but that’s alright—it’s their birthday.
5. KEEP YOUR CHAT BOX OPEN IF YOUR PARENTS ARE UNAWARE ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP
This should be noted by Indians: do not ever make the mistake of leaving your PC screen on with the chat window or skype window open. Deleting all your call logs would also be recommended because if your relationship has lasted long enough for your parents to notice the little changes, you parents will find out. You can only be prepared.
6. GIVE UP EACH TIME YOU THINK IT’S NOT WORKING
You might want to become more selfless by trying to convince your partner that they would have a better relationship with someone in their own town. But, if your partner loves you and they know you love them, it will only piss your partner off and make them think that you are a quitter.
7. BREAK UP BECAUSE YOU THINK YOUR OTHER PRIORITIES CANNOT BE COMPROMISED
If you always had your priorities in mind and knew you cannot commit to a long-distance relationship, you never should have gotten into one. But if you think you can work around it and balance your love life and other priorities without compromising much of either, hold on to each other. Break-up is not the satisfying solution.
8. NOT TALK ABOUT SEX AT ALL
Well, it’s pretty natural to bring up sex in the conversation when you’re thousands of miles away from each other. For those who think your relationship will last just as long without the “disgusting” dirty talk: it won’t. Guys need it and so will girls once you start yearning for each other’s bodies.
Basically, if you are in for it, you have to be totally in for it.
