Your adrenaline is pumping with excitement amidst the anticipation of your date.

Future

Start making plans for the future. This gives you something to look forward to. According to BestLife,  “The only real reason to engage in a long distance relationship is because you believe they are ‘the one,’ ” says Kevin DarnĂ©, relationship expert and author. It’s true. “If you’re just dating for fun, you might as well do that locally.” 

Remind yourself that this sacrifice isn't forever. You have goals in mind that will benefit you both with a joyful relationship. Look at the grand scheme of things, not just the present situation.

Build trust

If your relationship is built on trust, you can feel just as close to a lover that's out of town as you could someone that live right next to you. Relationships are wonderful. You can be miles away from each other, but in actuality, your hearts feel as if they are beating as one. That's because you have an emotional connection that will make you feel secure in your relationship.

The trust is there, and it is an essential element of having a quality and lasting relationship. If you don't trust your partner, you will spend unnecessary time being a private detective and not getting paid for it. This will leave you stressed; meanwhile, not relaxing and experiencing life to the best of your ability.

Knowing a person will do what is beneficial for you and your relationship is a reliable sign. A person that motivates and encourages you to achieve the best in life is unquestionably an impressive person to have in your life. A person that doesn't attempt to alienate family and inspires a healthy family relationship is positive.

You can build trust by keeping all lines of communication open where you can conversate about anything. Every couple is different, but if possible talk each day. Respond to calls and text in a timely matter. Don't be afraid to let other people know you are in a relationship. Let each other know up front if you like to talk or Facetime each other often. 

That's right, Technolgy helps in cultivating a healthy long-distance relationship. Being able to see each other through Facetime, Skype, or other technology, can bring a lot of joy to many couples. Knowing your partner's preferences can help keep a lasting relationship. Be willing to compromise to make your lover a priority. That goes a long way towards building trust that will help you get over little things that come up in life. That's right nothings perfect! A business meeting or work may keep you from talking at the moment, but if you have built trust, you will not be threatened.

Surprises and Special Moments

Send surprises and build memories together. Create all kinds of fascinating milestones. Send flowers or go online and pay for their dinner from one of their preferred restaurants to show them that you are constantly thinking of them and your commitment to each other even when you are not in their presence..

Meghan Daum stated, "Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough."

A long distance relationship may not be for everyone, but if you understand someone well enough and desire to try it, go for it. Make sure they have the appropriate qualities to make a suitable mate before investing to much time in them. Some people's job may carry them away from home for a while, and that doesn't have to be the end of a fabulous relationship if both people are willing to put in the effort, time, and commitment to make the relationship work.

Have a happy and blessed day building a healthy relationship.
