In order to make a relationship work, it takes a lot of effort, and being in a long-distance relationship is no exception. There are lots of people who say they’d never be in an LDR because they know it’s not right for them, and that’s okay! They’re right; it’s not going to work for every relationship.
If you’ve decided that you’re going to commit to a long-distance relationship, there are a few things you can do to help set you and your partner up for success.
Schedule Your Phone Calls
Sure, it doesn’t seem as romantic, but having a schedule will help you. Plan out call times that work for both of you, and remember that it’s not set in stone. Start off with a few calls a week, then reevaluate once you have a better idea of how frequently you want to talk or what nights work best for both of you.
