Keeping the spark alive in long distance relationship

Long-distance relationships really do suck. Who enjoys meeting their partner once or twice in several months or years? While it is challenging to be away from your partner, a long-distance relationship can be rewarding if you both are dedicated to making it work.

You might have heard people say that long-distance relationships don't work out. Relationships are bound to end if the individuals involved aren't interested in putting in the necessary efforts - be it long distance or not. So, don't heed these remarks and try to make your relationship work.

! You've already taken the first step by reading this article. Well, I won't bore you anymore with a lengthy paragraph on why long-distance relationships are worth your time and energy. Let's jump in and check out how you can keep the flame of your love burning bright.

Communication is the key

Communication is the key

You must have heard this a thousand times and might even be bored of hearing this advice. But communication is truly the key to a healthy and lasting relationship- be it long distance relationship or not.

Send each other good morning and good night texts, and talk about how your respective day was, etc. Also, communicate if something is bothering you.

Virtual Dates

Virtual date

Gone are the days when one had to be with their partner in person to go on fun dates. Technology had advanced a lot and now you have the option of enjoying virtual dates.

You can engage in a lot of activities together online to stay connected with your loved ones. You can enrol in online cooking classes, art classes, etc., or you can schedule a video call and drink coffee together.

Who doesn't enjoy a good coffee date? And don't forget to dress up for your virtual date; it makes it more fun.

Send Gifts

Sending  Gifts to your loved ones

Now that online shopping is a huge thing. it has become much easier to send gifts to anyone across the world. Make the most of this and send heart-touching gifts to remind your partner of your love.

You don't have to stick to gifting only on anniversaries, birthdays or other important days. Surprise your partner and let them know that you miss them.

Be Independent

Be independent

Sometimes we tend to forget that we have a life of our own and focus mostly on our relationship. That's not a good idea. So, don't spend your free time waiting for your partner's calls or texts. Instead, focus on your hobbies, family, friends, etc.

Also, understand that your partner is an individual with his own priorities, work, and life and don't be too mad when they fail to give you all their time.

Plan Trips Together

Plan for a common place to visit in a long distance relationship

Instead of simply visiting each other, plan and visit a new place. Visiting each other's place can get a bit boring after a certain point. So, pack your bags and go on a vacation to explore a destination together and create beautiful memories.

Make Time for Each Other

It can become hard for you both to spend time with each other due to school, work, etc. But make sure to find some time to talk with your partner as regular communication is needed to keep the spark alive.

You don't have to spend hours talking to each other - a few minutes spent together is also enough.


Don't rush your relationship. Have patience and support each other in difficult situations. Though long-distance relationships are definitely challenging, following the above-mentioned tips will help your relationship grow stronger.
