My anniversary with J also falls 2 months before the holidays and as we all know holiday gift shopping are just as hectic. If you’re like me, it can be tough trying to piece together something sentimental – especially when your significant other lives in another city. I’m always coming up with ideas on themes or ideas and refer to Pinterest as my go-to for resources, but I love making my gifts more personal. But here’s some ideas to help jump start your personalized gift!
Long distance relationships are hard, to say the least. You don’t see the other person for weeks on end, and it can tear a couple apart. In fact, 75% of couples end up splitting in long distance relationships. But it can work if you both make an effort to stay in contact and meet up as much as you can. And it can be a great relationship if it works for you both! Here is some help to keep to keep the love alive in long distance relationships.
It’s no secret that no two relationships are the same; each and every couple’s connection works in a different ways. That being said, each and every relationship goes through a selection of distinct stages. This is true for both long distance and ‘normal’ relationships. The truth is, not every stage of being in a relationship is an easy or happy one, and can lead to all sorts of problems. To help you ensure that you are able to navigate successfully through each stage of your relationship, I wanted to share a few pointers with you. Hopefully, these will help your relationship to stand the test of time and go the distance.
So you’ve gotten into a little argument with your significant other and you’re probably pretty upset about it. After all, let’s face it, even when you get mad at them, you still love them to pieces! Haha. And being mad at someone who you love to pieces is certainly no fun at all.
I know there are some people out there who think if couples fight, they are probably not right for each other. But I find this to be untrue. Obviously if they are fighting constantly and/or do not fight in a healthy way, then yes, they are probably not a good match. However, if a couple fights every now and then and they know how to handle it in a healthy way, then I think it is absolutely fine. After all, you are with this person all the time and you love them, surely at some points it is only natural to have a little bicker.
That all being said, I’d like to provide a bit of advice to consider when you and your significant other find yourself in a bit of a pickle.
I’m seeing more and more people being in long distance relationships and I can’t help but wonder, if more people are choosing to date someone residing in another country why are people still so negative about it? Romance between two people starts off as a gamble with fate with a mixture of fireworks like the 4th of July and as days goes by, feelings tend to get stronger and eventually talks of ‘happily ever after’ comes to the surface. So then I ask, how is this any different if the romance is generated from afar or near? Being in both a failed long distance relationship and currently in a successful one, here are 4 things people get wrong about long distance relationships:
Ariel have always been my favorite Disney character and as I child (like most of us) growing up to Disney movies, Disneyland was one of my dream vacations. Years down the road, it finally became a reality and took a family trip to our first visit to Disneyland in California. As far as I remembered, it was magical.
Fast-forward 20 years later, I still look at Disneyland as a magical place and still hits home whenever I spot the characters roaming around the area. However, this time around, I’m not relying on my parents to pack my belongings and plan the itinerary for the trip!
