5 tips for preparing to meet your long distance partner for the first time
I swear I will hit the next person who tells me that long distance relationships NEVER work out…and there have been many. Mike is from America. After having both finished the Mt Kilimanjaro climb, we met through mutual travelers at the hotel at the bottom of the mountain. Before we knew it we had spent hours talking to each other and laughing together, and found ourselves sitting beneath a starry African sky in the early AM hours. Dinner had turned into breakfast and we forced ourselves to say goodbye before heading towards separate flights.
We swapped emails and phone numbers, not having any clue that our wedding in Hawaii would be less than three years later. I firmly believe that you can make anything work if you want to.
I wont lie — long distance for 18 months was incredibly hard, but we made it work by maintaining the following. More information at the end. We spoke every day. I got an amazing phone plan where I had unlimited calls to international mobiles, and we would talk for hours. Being forced to talk on the phone meant that we got to know each other a lot more intimately, and a lot more quickly than we otherwise would have. A few months in, I may have had only spent 12 hours physically with this person, but I felt like I had known him for years.
Skype video chat is also amazing. Work out a time which works in both time zones and try to stick with it so you have consistency. Mike had gone online, found a florist in my area and ordered them to be delivered…from America! Megan you must have been amazing in bed! One hotel reception shift I had a pizza delivery man come in at lunch and drop off a Large Hawaiian, bottle of Fanta and chocolate lava cake; all which had been ordered and paid for by Mike online, from America!!
Friendship Lamps are a really cool way to add some romance into a long distance relationship. You can send each other colors, convey messages, and this small but really simple concept is a great way to bridge the gap in the distance that separates you! Click here to buy a pair of Friendship Lamps and surprise your partner! Surprisingly, it does actually help when you consistently catch up with the person. Mike and I took our circumstances as a great opportunity to travel and met up with each other around the world.
After meeting initially in August , we went to Scotland for that Christmas, and toured London, Amsterdam and Paris.
He then came to Australia in April and spent a month with my friends and family before proposing! We spent two weeks in London in June of that year, and he was back in Australia in October for our engagement party.
We got married in Hawaii on Valentines day and settled in America. During our long distance relationship, we met on average every 3 or so months. We both worked 2 jobs to pay for all of our travel; 16 hour days, in my case while at the same time studying Journalism and Law full time at university and still maintaining a pretty impressive social life. Listen to what your friends and family have to say, sure, but thank them for their opinion and continue living your life.
However all of the negativity stopped of course when invitations to Hawaii were sent out and suddenly everyone had always been cheering for our relationship from the start! So in summary, take it from me — long distance relationships work if you want them to.

This is a group for support and advice on being in a long distan ce relationship. Everyone is welcome — we look forward to connecting with you. Thanks Jo! But somehow it worked. I love your story — not sure if mine will turn out the same but went on trip to meet someone overseas we met online — and we got along well… I am leaving up to him — and going about my life….
Hi Pam! Congrats on meeting a great guy! This year we will celebrate our 17 th anniversary by moving to Australia. I wife moved to the States and now we move to my home hometown to be with our two beautiful Granddaughters. Bless you both live long and happy xx.
Congratulations Trisha! I really do think that having the strength and courage to keep going when everyone you know is sprouting nothing but negativity is one of the biggest hurdles.
I met him here in Belgium where I am working as Au-pair. Higreat story,hapoy for you both. I aslo wanted to know if. You guys had a plan as to how long you will spend apart before you next meet up?
Does he have any children who could set up Skype or Facetime for him? Or perhaps you could talk him through the set up over the phone.
Please email me so we can chat more about it — Brooklyn sharpentertainment. Hi I recently met someone in Tanzania in Africa and she wants to come to Scotland to live with me but I have no clue on what to do so any advice would greatly appreciated. And also we love each other please help. Hi Mark, congrats on meeting someone : The process of her coming to live with you will greatly depend on the options for UK immigration, so I would start by looking into the different types of Visas she might be able to apply for to spend time with you in Scotland.
This could mean spending a year first and then opting for something more permanent, but the first step will be to figure out what your options are and go from there. HI Julius, all advice here is for those already in a long distance realtionship. Wishing you all the best. Thank you so much for your bravery. Not just for telling your story but for your dedication and your relationship.
As I write this I am sitting at the Brisbane airport waiting for my sister whom I will stay with tonight bef ore flying to Kentucky tomorrow. I am going to spend three months with the love of my life.
We met 19 years ago in an msn chat room. He was in the Navy back then and we had five glorious days together when his ship came to Western Australia where I was living at the time. We tried to keep our relationship going but we both had young children at the time so we decided we would try to move on without the other. It killed me to hear him so unhappy and depressed but I believe we are friends first and I supported him through his grief until we had a quarrel and we stopped talking.
Imagine my surprise when in February this year he called me out of the blue!! Everyday since we have spoken on the phone and text constantly. We average around four hours talking each day and we talk about everything and anything!
So, at 50 and 52 years of age we are beginning the long journey with immigration etc. I love you with all of my heart baby and I am honored to be in your life. I will work everyday of my life to make you as happy as you make me. Love the romantic gestures! Stories like this only happen in the movies! Loved this! Long distance can work. Great tips. Thanks Roza!
Sounds like Tanzania is the place to be!! So awesome to hear a positive long distance experience from someone else as well! We are now 1 year long distance, been traveling to Germany to see him. As Meg says, it really works if you want it to.
This just made me feel so relieved that this can happen. I very recently broke up with my bf because of my long term travel plans. Really impressed with your positive attitude towards life — someone will come along when you genuinely least expect it in circumstances that you least expect — trust me!
Until then though enjoy your travels! Hi Laura I agree with you.. HI Karolina — my email is megan mappingmegan. I agree with so much of what you said. You gotta use that and prove them wrong. I am in a long distance relationship Canada-USA mind you we try to see eachother every month or so and have been for a year. My boyfriend does the cutest things.

This is it!! SO exciting! You might already have a dozen things planned out and 20 more possibilities swirling around in your head. That may sound nice and it may even work out well for you but my advice is to do some advance planning about things you want to do together. You should plan out some activities that will allow you to talk together e. You should also plan some things that will give you something to focus on apart from each other. And, depending on how much of an introvert you are and therefore how much alone time you need to recharge , you might also want to plan one or two activities that will give you a break from talking movies, plays, shows, concerts, etc. Having a plan for things you can do together will help you relax and enjoy the visit more.
8 things you should consider before trying to make a long-distance relationship work
I make my living flying around the world, talking to women about how to take control of their money so they can afford their dream life. Was I supposed to settle for a skype-only relationship while he was away? My mom had racked up so many from her years of business trips that all of my childhood vacations were financed by miles. So I figured it was time to rack up some miles for myself.
Two years ago, I was drinking a margarita on a rooftop bar in Manhattan when I met a man from London. When I asked how they met, they taught me something important: starting a relationship long-distance is possible. Here's their story: He searched for his highest match on OkCupid, and she happened to be on the other side of the world.
International Love: Maintaining a Long Distance Relationship
Sometimes couples find themselves living in different cities, states, or countries. We chose the latter. Here are some things everyone should consider before deciding to commit to a long distance relationship. Wanting to spend as much time as possible talking to my partner in a different time zone meant that I often skipped out on friends and activities to make time for Skype sessions or phone calls.
So when is it best to meet for the first time in person? As quickly as possible? In my case , that was three months. In yours, it might be three weeks or a year. So why is it so important to meet face to face as soon as you reasonably can? Here are three reasons:.
What To Know Before Meeting Your Long Distance Partner For The First Time
Healthy long-distance relationships are possible thanks to the seemingly infinite methods of communicating with loved ones messaging, calling, Snapchatting, tweeting, tagging. Consistent communication is a major factor in maintaining a solid bond with a partner, whether they are in another city, state, or country. However, there are many elements that should be considered when entering into a long-distance relationship. Here are 10 signs that you and your partner could go the distance. Texting is the most convenient way of reaching friends and family, and long-distance relationships are no different. Calling or video chatting each week is recommended, but the majority of your conversations will probably take place over text, especially if you and your partner have different schedules. Obviously, it is important to keep each other up to date on promotions, achievements, and big events, but the power of daily details should not be underestimated.
Seventy years ago, the Yale sociologist John Ellsworth Jr. Though the internet allows us to connect with people across the globe near-instantly , dating apps like Tinder prioritize showing us nearby matches, the assumption being the best date is the one we can meet up with as quickly as possible with little inconvenience. A year and a half ago, I was 23, single, and working as an engineer at the online-dating site OkCupid. The site held a similar philosophy when it came to distance, and we employees would sometimes joke we needed to add a special filter for New Yorkers that let them specify, Show me matches under 10 miles, but nobody from New Jersey.
