It’s been three weeks since you left, and I still haven’t gotten used to your absence. The bed you used to sleep in feels so cold when I crawl into it; I wish you were there to warm me up with your body heat like you always did. The big TV I bought right before you left just feels like a big black hole in my living room now—no one to watch the football games with, no one to talk to during the exciting parts, no one to rub my feet when they hurt from standing all day at work, no one to…you get the idea.

When should you bring up tough conversations?

No one likes to have tough conversations, but they’re a necessary part of any relationship. Whether it’s about money, sex, or in-laws, these conversations can be a minefield. Here are a few tips for having them without blowing up your relationship.

1) Make sure you’re both feeling calm and relaxed before starting the conversation. Find an activity that will get your heart rate down, like taking a walk together or going on a bike ride.

2) Explain what you want from the conversation upfront and start with the questions you need answered first. ‘

3) Keep your emotions under control so you don’t go into this vulnerable moment angry or feeling attacked.

Difficult Conversations During Long Distance Relationships

Long distance relationships are hard. You can’t just drop everything and travel to see each other whenever you want. Instead, you have to be strategic about your visits and make the most of your time together. And when you’re not together, you have to find ways to stay connected. That’s why it’s so important to have difficult conversations early on in a long-distance relationship. By doing so, you can set expectations and figure out how to best support each other during this time apart. One of the first questions I ask my clients is what are some things that make you feel abandoned?

It’s important to talk about what feels safe for both partners. Some people prefer talking on the phone or video chatting over FaceTime or Skype, while others prefer texts or emails. It really depends on what works for you and your partner- communication is key!

It’s also vital to talk about how often you want to contact one another.

How to Improve Communication in Long Distance Relationships

1. Plan regular check-ins. Whether it’s a daily phone call or a weekly Skype session, make sure you have some sort of regular communication with your partner. This will help reduce the feeling of distance and ensure that you’re both on the same page.

2. Be open and honest about your feelings. 3. Talk about your expectations for the future. 4. Remember why you love each other in the first place! If you need a reminder, think back to when things were going well between the two of you. What made him so special? What attracted her to you? What do they like doing together? Remind yourself how much this person means to you, and try not to take anything for granted.

Don’t forget that your partner is human just like you are, and he/she is probably struggling with this as well.

Advanced Tips for Long Distance Relationship Advice

1. Keep the communication lines open. Whether you’re texting, calling, or video chatting, make sure you’re staying in touch as much as possible.

2. Make time for each other. Even if it’s just a few minutes a day, set aside time to talk and connect with your partner.

3. Be supportive. Long-distance relationships can be tough, so offer words of encouragement and reassurance when your partner is feeling down.

4. Get creative with your love language. If physical intimacy is important to your relationship, get creative! Skype sex may not sound like fun at first but the benefits are worth it.

5. Support each other’s passions outside of the relationship. It’s easy to neglect an ex-partner when they live across the country but try not to let work, school, or other activities come between you two too often

End of Long Distance Relationship Advice

It’s been two weeks since you left for your new job on the other side of the country. And I miss you so much already. I’m trying to be strong, but some days I just feel so alone. I know we agreed that this was the best thing for our careers, but I can’t help but wonder if we’re making a mistake. When we talk on the phone it feels like our time together is getting shorter and shorter. When I try to ask about how you’re doing, it seems like all you want to do is talk about work.
