You have to make sure that you can trust a person and from then just leave everything that might worry you about your relationship. When you meet someone online and want to get to know them, you have to realize that texting or voice messaging someone or even video calling is not something you can use to trust a person.

If you are already in a serious relationship and your partner has moved away from you, most probably you already trust them and if you do not trust them, your relationship is no different than a new one, so if you want to stay with your partner, you have to start over.

Communication: Without communication, there can be a lot of misunderstandings that can damage your relationship. When you are in a long distance relationship you have to put extra effort into communicating with your partner.

Communication is already difficult when you are talking face to face with your partner, so, if you cannot see them for a while, communication can cause some troubles. Another aspect of this problem is the time difference. If you are living in two totally different time zones, then you can face some challenges.

When you are up and want to talk your partner might be tired or sleeping. This is usually interpreted as a lack of compassion and can make you upset.

Solution: When you want to talk to your partner over a call or text message, remember to make time for it. It is important that you make time for it, especially if you are fighting or arguing about something. Generally arguing over a phone call can be exhausting.

So, if there is also the time difference issue, you want to make sure that when you are trying to solve a problem, you give it your full attention.

Missing out the important events: When you love someone, you want to be there for them in their happiness and sadness. When couples start a long distance relationship there is going to be some changes in the things they can share or the way they share them, for example, if your partner has got a promotion at work and wants to celebrate with you, you might not be able to be there for them.


Or if they are having a hard time, again you cannot leave your life and go to them no matter how much you want to.

Solution: Unless there is an unexpected situation, try to plan ahead. Plan to surprise your partner on his/her birthday. Plan to be there for them for certain celebrations. And if something happens that they need your support, if you cannot fly to them, you can try to communicate with them more than before, through your phone.

But if you are serious in your relationship and you think it is worth it, then by putting an equal effort you can survive this and move on to the next step of your relationship.
