5 Useful Tips To Make Long Distance Relationship Work

 

In a long distance relationship and wondering how to make it work? These practical tips are all you need.

It’s often said that you can’t help who you fall in love with. Sometimes, the person we love happens to live far away from us, which can make it more difficult, as we cannot see them as often as we would like. There are many people out there who think that long-distance relationships are impossible to be in, and that those types of relationships are only going to fail. However, this is not always the case. If you truly love this person who lives far away from you, you will find a way to work everything out. Here are some of the best tips for those who are in long-distance relationships to help ensure that your relationship will be successful.

 

  1. Establish trust.

 

This is perhaps one of the most important parts of any relationship, but it is especially important for long-distance relationships. You are not around the person often and therefore have no idea what they’re really up to all day. Therefore, you have no other choice but to trust that they aren’t doing anything to hurt you, or else you will go crazy. It helps to discuss your daily and weekly plans with one another, and to see based on their behavior if you really can trust this person or not. If you find that you can’t, then this relationship may not be worth it.

 

  1. Communicate on a regular basis.

 

Communication is the key part of a long-distance relationship, because this is how you will really get to know each other. With the dawn of social media, there are plenty of ways to keep in contact for free. Some include Facebook Messenger, Instagram, Whatsapp, Viber, and Skype. You are naturally going to want to talk for 24 hours every day, but this is unrealistic. Make sure to give each other some space, but have a strong source of contact. Also make sure to video chat every once in a while.

 

  1. Get to know their family.

 

Knowing your significant other’s family is also crucial because it will say a lot about the person you’re with and will also help you to determine how you would like your future to play out with this person. While, of course, there are many successful couples who do not get along with the other’s family, it should be a goal for you to get along with your loved one’s family and to get to know them better. This will also help improve the relationship between you and your significant other.

 

  1. Try to set up a date to meet in person.

 

There is only so much love you both can share online. You should save up money and make it a point to visit one another. Maybe go on a nice vacation,visit them, or have them visit you. Meeting in person will give your relationship a different viewpoint and will help both of you to bond better. It will also help you to get to know your significant other better, as there are some people who are different in person than they are online.

 

  1. Treat it as a real relationship.

 

This can help determine the longevity of your long-distance relationship. Remember that your significant other is a person just like you with feelings and goals. This person is your boyfriend or girlfriend; that means you should not be cheating on them and you should not be lying to them. Take their feelings into consideration and treat them just as you would treat a significant other who was physically by your side. This is not a game. Long-distance relationships are real and can be determinant of your future.

Adekunle –

She’s pregnant already. Three months gone. It’s funny our marriage is just three months and she’s already three months pregnant. I can’t believe this. This holy sister was already sleeping with her lover boy even before we got married!

Women!

Well, good for her. At least, she gets to experience the total package of what being a woman entails. Life has been made easy for her. Our little secret remains a secret forever.

But wait a minute- what if the child comes out looking like her covetous lover boy. Would I be able to live with a bastard child? Would they expect me to foot the bills of this seed of theirs?

I definitely cannot send another man’s child to school! Won’t this be my loss eventually if I allow this slut to keep this baby?

What is best for all of us for her to have an abortion. I can’t treat a bastard as my child and if the child resembles the lover boy too much, her secret might be exposed. It is best she aborts. If she is so eager to have a child then we have the option of adoption.

She can’t have this baby. It’s too risky.
She’s aborting this baby, she must

Adekunle

I’ve never been into women. How could I ever like women when I felt like a woman myself? Physically, I am not girly but I know what I know and I know I am a woman inside. I’m sure I must have been a girl but someone from my father’s village must have played a fast one on my mum when she was pregnant with me. I should have come like a girl, but life is what it is.

My dad is a pastor and there’s no way announcing my status would be easy on him and so I kept this little secret to myself.

I was thankful when I was sent abroad for my college, university degree and masters program. I was in a land where I was accepted for who I was and I was free. Then I was told to either come back to Nigeria or forfeit my inheritance. I had to come back home.

Now, dad had to add marriage again. Well, I’ll keep playing along.

Bewaji is a really cool lady but I don’t feel anything sexual towards her. I made her see reasons with me why we couldn’t get intimate and funny enough, she agreed. It turned out that this holy sister wasn’t really holy after all!

Well, it’s fine, I get to be me and she gets to be her.

Cunning man die, na cunning man bury am…

Bewajimi

Adekunle told me he was a homosexual. He said he had always felt like a woman within. All his years abroad, he lived as a homosexual. He knew homosexuals were not welcomed in Nigeria and he didn’t want to come back to Nigeria but now his father had given him a condition that if he didn’t come back home, all his properties would be given to charity.

Adekunle wanted the properties and that was why he did his father’s bidding. Adekunle told me point blank that he feels like a woman and there was no way he was going to sleep with another woman–he said it didn’t feel right.

I couldn’t believe my ears. This was not what I bargained for!

I told him to excuse me after he made the confession. He apologized but I just told him to give me time.

I had time to think and I came up with the perfect plan. If Adekunle wants to continue to live as a homosexual, then I should be allowed to continue my relationship with Sojimi. I suddenly felt relaxed.

I called Adekunle and we reached a truce. He was to continue is act, while I would continue with my relationship with Sojimi. We suddenly both felt a weight taken off our shoulders.

We continued with our trip to Dubai. In Dubai, we acted as if we were siblings – no one would believe we were married as Adekunle frequently visited homosexual clubs, while I was forever on phone with the love of my life – Sojimi. I enjoyed every bit of the trip and so did Adekunle.

We came back to Nigeria and relocated to Port Harcourt. Sojimi relocated as well. My somewhat dark cloud suddenly seemed to have a silver lining…
