How to Make a Long-Distance Relationship Work

You can't deny that long-distance relationships are tough. Being apart from your significant other can take a toll on you emotionally and mentally. However, there are ways to make a long-distance relationship work. With the right communication and effort, you can maintain a healthy and happy relationship despite the distance.

Here are some tips on how to make a long-distance relationship work:

Communication is Key

One of the most important aspects of any relationship is communication. This is especially true for long-distance relationships. When you're not able to see each other in person, it's important to find other ways to communicate effectively. Whether you use video chat, text, or email, make sure you're communicating often and sharing your thoughts and feelings with each other.

Stay Connected in Other Ways

In addition to communication, it's important to find other ways to stay connected with each other. This can include sending photos, care packages, or even just keeping in touch throughout the day. It's important to find ways to keep the spark alive and show your partner that you're still thinking of them even when you're apart.

Make Time for Each Other

Even though you can't be together in person all the time, it's important to make time for each other. Schedule regular video chats or phone calls so you can catch up on what's going on in each other's lives. Plan special events, even if they have to be online, so you can celebrate things together. Just because you're in a long-distance relationship doesn't mean you can't still have fun and enjoy your time together.

Be Understanding

Long-distance relationships can be tough, so it's important to be understanding of each other's situation. If one person is having a bad day or is feeling homesick, the other person should try to be understanding and supportive. It's not always easy being apart from each other, but as long as you both are willing to work through the tough times, your relationship will only get stronger.

Set Some Ground Rules

When you're in a long-distance relationship, it's important to set some ground rules about communication. You should both agree on how often you'll talk or text, and what times are best for each of you. This will help prevent any misunderstandings and ensure that both of you are getting the attention you need. Long-distance relationships require a lot of trusts, so it's also important, to be honest with each other about what's going on in your life. If something is bugging you, tell your partner right away.

Keep the Romance Alive

Just because you're not physically together doesn't mean the romance has to go out the window. There are plenty of ways to keep the spark alive, even when you're miles apart. Send each other love letters, care packages, or little gifts to let them know you're thinking of them. Plan fun dates that you can do virtually, like having a picnic over Skype or watching a movie at the same time. And most importantly, make sure to schedule regular visits so you can finally hold each other in your arms again.

Communicate Often

One of the most important things in any relationship is communication, but it's especially important in a long-distance one. You need to be able to talk about everything, from the big stuff like how your day was to the little things like what you're having for dinner. Set up regular times to chat, whether it's over the phone, via text, or on a video call, so you can keep each other updated on what's going on in your lives.

Trust Each Other

Trust is essential in any relationship, but it can be harder to come by when you're not together all the time. If you want your long-distance relationship to work, you need to trust that your partner is being faithful. This can be difficult, but it's important to remember that if you don't trust each other, the relationship will never work.


Long-distance relationships can be difficult, but if you're willing to put in the work, they can be very rewarding. Just remember to communicate often, make time for each other, and trust that your partner is being faithful. With a little effort, you can make your long-distance relationship work!

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

Emma Smith
  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
