Long distance relationships are not easy to maintain, mind you, but then neither are close distance relationships, so there are potential pros and cons for each.
But if you want to make your long distance relationship work, here's what you need to do.
SET CLEAR RULES
Is it going to be an open relationship while you're apart? Who will relocate if things get serious? Have you placed a name on what it is you're doing? Are you dating? Just seeing each other? Or are you gravitating towards engaged?
Knowing all the answers to these questions of the bat will save you a whole lot of potential heartache down the line, so ask her the tough questions before you decide that you both want this.
COMMUNICATE EVERY DAY
I'm not talking about a casual email here and there - I'm talking about full on conversation with her. With Skype, chatting on Facebook, and Twitter, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to talk every single day.
And you don't have to talk for hours; a few minutes to say hi and that you're thinking of her ought to give her the necessary comfort she needs from a boyfriend.
SHARE A COMMON INTEREST
Just because you can't touch each other, doesn't mean that you can't share a common interest. Whether it's a TV program or a new book on the best sellers list, do something together that the both of you can discuss and have an open debate about.
These common interests will make you feel close to each other and that's what relationships are all about.
TALK ABOUT THE FUTURE
You will eventually be together - this long distance relationship won't be long distance forever, so discuss the future and what it has in store for you when you do finally get together.
The future is what you long for so that you can be together, so talk about it openly. It's okay to miss each other when you know that the future holds a time for the two of you to be together.
VISIT EACH OTHER OFTEN
You don't have to do so once a month - but you shouldn't let 3 months go by without a visit. Remember that she longs to be touched as well, and while chatting every day is great, it doesn't compare to the feel of a warm body and sensual touching.
Make an effort to see her and she should do the same. You can alternate on who does the traveling.
AVOID BEING JEALOUS
Jealousy will get you nowhere in a relationship either way, but it will be so much worse when your girlfriend is a long distance away. Jealousy will get you nowhere fast.
Instead focus on what you know and if she's going to mess around, then hope that she has the class to end it with you. Being jealous will not help your cause in any way.
Sex is an important part of a relationship and your girlfriend needs to feel sexy, and that's where all those years in English will finally pay off.
Be as descriptive as you can and TELL HER ABOUT FANTASIES AND DREAMS you have about her and what you want to do to her. Turn her on with your words and rev her up for the next time you see each other.
Make her want no one else but you.
MAKE YOUR LONG DISTANCE RELATIONSHIP WORK
If you want to have a successful long distance relationship then you have to work at it every day.
