Does absence make the heart grow fonder? The answer may not be as simple as you think. Like any relationship, it really depends on the couple. Evidence has shown that couples who make it work "hold more positive attitudes about LDRs (long-distance relationships), feel more relationship certainty, and (while this might be counter-intuitive), maintain a greater physical distance apart."

If you're trying to decide if an LDR is right for you and your partner, we have some questions to consider, along with helpful tips to go the distance and keep the spark lit across the miles.


QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER

Before you invest the time and energy in a long-distance relationship you may want to sit down with your partner and consider these questions.


TIPS FOR GOING THE DISTANCE

Here are three basic ground rules that are important to stick to when you're in a long-distance relationship.


KEEPING THE SPARK HOT

Now that you've asked questions and set the ground rules, here are a few romantic ideas to keep the spark lit.

  • Play a game of truth or dare over the phone. Whatever your partner dares you to do, you have to do. Be sure to have your favorite women's vibrator on hand, just in case you get dared to use it!

  • Dress up in sexy lingerie for your next Skype date. Set the mood with candles and romantic music, then have your partner describe what he'd like to do to you.

  • Try a little afternoon sexting. Check out our recent blog post on Sexting Must Do's & Must Don'ts for ideas on how to best tantalize your partner from afar.

Cheers!
