Being in a long-distance relationship with a person you truly care for is not easy, but when it works out it will be all worth it. Probably, the most common reason why most couples don’t have a successful long-distance relationship is that you don’t have an end plan.
An End Plan Will Ensure That You Have A Successful Long-Distance Relationship
Most often, couples who are in a long-distance relationship don’t really think about an end plan. Yes, the connection and communication through chat or video call may be good. However, if there’s no end-goal, you won’t be sure where the relationship will lead you. There are different kinds of end plans that can make a successful long-distance relationship:
1. When To Be Together Finally
Ultimately, the goal is to be together. It will depend on the couple on how they define this. For example, “be together” could mean get married and live in the same country, or just live together in the same apartment or house. Talk about when you and your partner foresee this happening.
2. How Long Should We Be Apart
Another end-goal that you can have is the frequency of which you and your partner see each other. Move to this item if the first one isn’t in your plans yet. For example, you and your partner could say that you have to see each other three times a year, with at least a week’s duration every time one visits.
What Happens When There Is No End-Goal?
Basically, there are only two main end goals for every long-distance relationship. You might be thinking that making an end-goal will just come later. Yes, definitely, in most cases it does. But, as mentioned, it’s best to couple goal-making with actions that work towards the goal so have something to reach for or look forward to together. When this is missing, it’s like as if you are going around in circles because you don’t have a map to guide you.
A successful long-distance relationship doesn’t happen overnight. The two people involved have to have the same commitment in order to reach the end-goal that they have set. For more international dating tips, read other posts on the blog.
