Long Distance Relationships

Hi! It’s me again๐Ÿ™ˆ

This is a very playful, fun and possibly the most boring blog ever ๐Ÿ˜‚ a little look at my take on long distance relationships๐Ÿ™ˆ:)

So, research has shown that absence might truly make the heart grow fonder and that couples who participate in a healthy long-distance relationship can have more meaningful interactions than couples who see each other daily ๐Ÿ’

I’ve always seen our relationship journey has a learning opportunity because it constantly tests your commitment, love, trust and patience๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜‚ on a whole other level!

It wasn’t easy on certain days and still isn’t but that’s the beauty of it all because the challenge in love is not igniting the flame but keeping the flame burning๐Ÿ˜ right? ๐Ÿ˜„

And as some of you might know my husband and I have been apart for more days than we’ve seen each other๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ™Š I’m so serious๐Ÿ˜„ like I’ve seen him for about 100 days this past year๐Ÿ˜‚ and that’s why managing a long distance relationship comes as a challenge ๐Ÿ™ˆso it’s always a good thing to keep the relationship as normal as possible๐Ÿ˜‚ if that makes any sense ๐Ÿ˜„

And just because long distance relationships are difficult, and not many people will encourage you to do it, it doesn’t mean they’re impossible๐Ÿ™Š it really makes you appreciate the little things much more ๐Ÿ™

What makes it easier is that we’ve establish boundaries a long time ago and we were both clear with our expectations, we knew exactly where we would end up ๐Ÿ‘ซ because wasting time is pointless ๐Ÿ‘Ž

๐ŸŽถhe put a ring on it๐ŸŽถ

With that being said, I dread every day we spend apart because it feels like it’s never going to end ๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ”ซ

I am not the most positive person at all! BUT remaining constantly positive keeps the relationship alive, the waiting can be painful and I often feel lonesome๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿ™‡ because there is nothing worse than being the third wheel at dinner with your mates๐Ÿ˜‚ but the reward is greater and well worth the wait! ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿ’‹

I think the strangest thing is that you don’t have to communicate 24/7 to keep the relationship goingโ˜Ž๏ธ if you anything like me! I hate being on my phone๐Ÿ˜‚ Less is more ๐Ÿ˜„ creativity is key ๐Ÿ™‚ but there has to be a very open and direct line of communication with good reception!!! Because that can really get my knickers in a knot!!! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I can get so angry when there’s no reception!!!!

My LDRR aka long distance romantic relationship ๐Ÿ˜‚ has had it perks! And still does ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿ’

I never have to look on fleek all the time ๐Ÿ™ˆ you become independant๐Ÿ’the relationship is more than physical ๐Ÿ’ช I think I’m better at communicating ๐Ÿ’ I have loads of “me” time๐Ÿ’†๐Ÿ’… we go on exciting trips even if it’s to the local grocery store ๐Ÿ™ˆโœˆ๏ธyou actually become really good at planning๐Ÿ˜‚ and the sense of achievement that we’ve made it work is the greatest perk of all โค๏ธ

If you think about it like really think about it, there’s not much difference. All romantic relationships require the same about of time, effort and commitment.

So, if you find yourself in a LDRR๐Ÿ˜œ just remember that when two hearts are meant for each other, no distance is too far, no time is too long and no other love can break you apart๐Ÿ’‹

Get your LDRR on!
