Plus, our conversations started to get a little boring.There’s only so much reporting of my day I could do! I was supposed to be in the Netherlands for one night, but then I met him, and one night turned into five. For a while, I tried to convince myself to just appreciate our time together as a holiday fling and move on. Then we had a Skype call (the patron saint of LDRs), and I knew that I wanted to be with him—even if it was going to be complicated. The best stories are often from people who are in long-distance relationships because there was something about that first meeting that convinced them that it was worth trying to make a long-distance relationship work. I met him when I went on a solo backpacking trip around Europe. I’d never been in a long-distance relationship before—never mind with someone who literally lived on the other side of the world!
Another thing that my husband and I did was create a book club between us.
We’d both read the same book, and we’d regularly text each other reactions while we read.
But I did read a little faster than him, so I did have to promise not to reveal any spoilers!
That’s my biggest tip on how to make a long-distance relationship work: Be unreasonable. Your relationship should be the biggest priority in your life if you want it to survive.
My husband and I decided early on that the max amount of time we could spend apart was three months.
Plus, we all have busy lives in our own hometowns and jobs that aren’t going to let us take endless vacation days.
