Finals are coming and the stress just keeps piling on. If you have found yourself in a relationship and you’re not engaged yet you have two options, break up or have a long distant relationship for the summer.
If you want to continue your relationship, don’t be intimidated by long a distance relationship. It is a chance for you to grow and to actually see if you could make marriage work out with that person. However, don’t think you can go all summer without attempting to make it work. Here are some ideas for making your summertime romance work.
See it as an opportunity. If you can’t trust your partner to be alone and make wise decisions, you probably shouldn’t be in the relationship. If you can make it through four months being apart you can probably make it through anything.
Communicate regularly. You don’t want to be too clingy and text nonstop but you also want to try and text at least once a day to let your partner know that you care. A simple good morning goes a long way. Also keep your partner updated with things going on in your life, and finally be truthful. Lies get you nowhere but in trouble.
Visit each other. You should take turns going to each other’s home. It helps relieve some of the stress of a long distant relationship and it gives you something to look forward to. Remember, just like the communication, don’t overdo it. Clingy is not attractive.
Enjoy yourself. Just because you can’t be with your partner all the time doesn’t mean you need to sit around all summer like a sad sack. Hang out with your family and friends and enjoy the time you get to spend with them too. Don’t be the person that complains all summer about loneliness. People won’t admit it, but they want to hit that person.
Hopefully this helps relieve some of the stress that the end of the semester brings and that it helps with your long distance relationships. If you decide to break up for the summer, maybe if you both return to the same school you can meet back up and try again next year.
