Long/Short Distance Relationship Advice #13: Appreciation. Constantly

  • December 8, 2010 at 10:04 pm

Gigi is no longer in a truly long distance relationship… at least not one that would involve several planes and thousands of dollars. Yet her sweet new man Jonathan does live an hour away, so she cannot simply pop over to see him as often as she’d like. He also works till later at night than she does, which makes it hard for them to meet in the middle for dinner or a movie. For now it seems as though they will spend weekends together, and be apart during the work week. Yet so far they are making it work, and it is the simple thoughtful things that keep this relationship working. Long/Short Distance Relationship Advice #13: Appreciation.

Long Distance Relationship #12: Visits

  • November 5, 2010 at 11:11 pm

Gigi’s favorite long distance couple will always be Leroy and Angel… soon destined to no longer be apart, since Leroy is moving to where his Angel lives… Now THAT is true love: changing your life completely around to be with the one you love. Leroy must be the most romantic man that Gigi has ever known… and his Angel loves the things that he writes for her. Both Leroy and Angel were very sweet to Gigi, when her own long distance thing sizzled…not because of her, but because of Jean-Claude, who ironically enough went to school in Spain with Leroy and Angel. Leroy told Gigi that she is worth so much more than having a man who is cruel and disappears without a word… and that helped Gigi move on. For all you long distance lovers out there, here are Leroy’s sweet words to his Angel. Long Distance Relationship #12: Visits – continue reading…

Long Distance Advice #10: Long Distance Date Ideas

  • October 23, 2010 at 2:26 am

Here are some great ideas for dates that you can have with your sweetie, even if they live very far away from you. Gigi would love to try these out with Jean-Claude, but he is not very available these days… and might be on his way out. He did skype her yesterday, after over 2 weeks of practically no communication… and said that he was back. Yet today, he was once again absent and ignoring his phone. Gigi is almost done with her patience. However, she knows that there are others out there who do care enough to make it work long distance, so these ideas are for them.

Long Distance Relationship Advice #9: Don’t go silent

  • October 14, 2010 at 11:15 pm

Communication is vital in any relationship, but more so when you are in a long distance relationship. When you live far away from each other, you have to deal with the fact that you cannot see each other whenever you want to. You cannot just pop in for a quick hug and kiss. You cannot leave work to have lunch together. You cannot spend quality time with the one you love. You cannot have great make-up sex if there is any conflict between you.

Long Distance Relationship Advice #8: Be patient, but watch the signs.

  • October 5, 2010 at 11:19 pm

Be patient. This is always good advice in any relationship, but even more so in a long distance one. Sometimes one of the partners might need a little space. He or she might suddenly not be as communicative as they normally are. There can be many reasons for this: stress at work, friends visiting them, even feelings of hopelessness at being so far away from the one they love. All of this can make someone go distant. Cold. Hopefully for just a little while. Long Distance Relationship Advice #8: Be patient, but watch the signs. – continue reading…

Long Distance Relationship Advice #7

  • September 28, 2010 at 11:30 pm

Here are some things I found that people in long distance relationships do to stay close and in touch, even while apart. Gigi will be doing most, if not all of these with her Jean-Claude soon!! Almost two months together, and still going strong… Long Distance Relationship Advice #7 – continue reading…

Long Distance Relationship Advice #6: Skype!!

  • September 21, 2010 at 11:49 pm

Thank God for skype. It didn’t exist the first time that Gigi had a long distance relationship, one in which she often felt very out of touch with the man she was involved with… not being able to see his face, his emotions, see him as he spoke to her. With skype, long distance relationships can be taken to a whole other level… and I do not just mean being naughty on a web cam. It is more about being able to look into each other’s eyes, see the emotion there, see the smiles and the tears, be able to laugh together, listen to music together, and even amazingly enough, fall asleep together, while separated by an ocean and thousands of miles. It is how Gigi falls deeper and deeper in love with her Jean-Claude, without having seen him in person yet. Long Distance Relationship Advice #6: Skype!! – continue reading…

Long Distance Relationship Advice #5: Leave little gifts

  • September 18, 2010 at 12:12 am

Long distance needs extra work to make it work and last all the time spent apart. You cannot just pop into his or her house for a quick hug or kiss when you need one. All you have are phones, emails, and skype. So the more that you can do to show how much in love you are, the better. This can be done ever so easily, with just a little bit of effort on your part. Gifts. Little gifts of love showing them that you are thinking of them and care for them. Long Distance Relationship Advice #5: Leave little gifts – continue reading…

Long Distance Relationship Advice #4: Avoid being jealous

  • September 10, 2010 at 5:37 pm

Try never to be jealous of your partner’s friends. You are miles away from each other, and he/she deserves to be happy and be with friends he or she enjoys being with. They have the right to go out and have fun, and not just stay home moping and pining for you… even if it means that he is with them rather than on the phone with you.. So let him/her have friends to keep them happy while you are apart. Long Distance Relationship Advice #4: Avoid being jealous – continue reading…
