After receiving tonnes and tonnes of questions on our youtube and tumblr me and bae @jasonpizzino decided to finally make a video about how we make our long distance relationship work for us. we are sharing our tips in this video with you guys, hopefully you can get a thing or two out of it.
I thought I’d give you guys a quick summary of the video in this post so you could also read it out and make more sense out of it. Please make sure to share this post with whomever you think this will benefit, as It will help them and us as well
1. Trust each other
Trust is a key point in making a long distance relationship work for you. If you lack trust you will keep picking on little things and damage your relationship. working on the mutual trust is of high importance.
2. Keep your independence in check
First and foremost, you are your own person way before you enter a relationship. It’s vital to keep your independence in check; avoid neediness, learn to entertain yourself without your partner. Remember, you don’t need your mate to be complete, it is just an addition to an awesome life you are building for yourself. I used to be a super needy girlfriend and a great book that helped me is ‘Why Men Love Bitches‘.
3. Contact each other on whatsapp and facebook calls
Facebook and whatsapp now have this awesome feature you can call each other off your phones if you have the apps installed. For us it was simply a lifesaver! We also texted each other most of our waking hours on whatsapp, we always kept in touch.
4. Skype sex, sexting and snapchat nudes
This one is a must. Sex is an inseparable part of a normal relationship in our opinion, and we took advantage of every app we could use to send each other sexy nudes, sexts and masturbated to each other on skype. It’s actually a really interesting aspect of sex that I didn’t experience much of before going on a long distance relationship and I fucking loved it.
5. Schedule specific times to talk
To be honest, I had massive issues with this one, I didn’t like the feeling that Jason is putting “A call to Henya” in his daily schedule, as it made me feel like I was some chore you need to do in between feeding the dog and answering emails. But trying to manage a long distance relationship between continents, when I’m in Israel and Jason’s in Australia, it was kind of the only option. What do you know, after less than a month, I became more fanatic about scheduling than he was!
6. Work towards a goal
The first time me and Jason split up, we didn’t know what we were going to do. We had no goal in mind and no idea when we will ever meet again. our relationship was standing on the rocks after several weeks and then Jason Bought a ticket to come see me in Thailand. Since we had a date we knew we were working towards, it became way easier. As time went by, we started working towards a bigger goal of living together in Asia, working on our social media and be together. Some people can manage a long distance relationship for years and years, for us, it wasn’t sustainable so we decided to work towards being with each other long term. It’s important to know your boundaries and how long you can be away from each other, and figure things out from there.
