We're lucky these days that we have things like Skype and FaceTime that help to keep connected when it comes to long term relationships. My husband and I would also send each other small gifts and regular "snail mail" from time to time. We'd also try and always have times lined up where we knew we'd get to see each other again, like a light at the end of the tunnel.

If you've done a long distance relationship, what are your biggest tips for keeping the love alive?

Having been in a long distance relationship before, there are the tips that I would recommend for anyone to use and make his or her relationship work out. They are ;

Show affection very well
Call more often
Text as well (Social media chats can do)
Visiting vice versa
Take care of your partner's personal needs.

Good points, I think it's important to also consider (even though the other half may not admit it) is the insecurities in the relationship due to being long distance.

The other person may get worried about the other girls/boys around you, as they don't know anyone in your local community.

I think it's nice to show each other off on social media and to almost advertise yourself as being taken, that will reassure the other half.

I think there are a lot of ways to make a love alive even in a long distance relationship, first is that we must have an open communication wherein we will not hide anything to our partner and as much as possible trust must always be there. We should take into consideration that without trust there will be no love and understanding. Second is by using the technologies now to make it looks like we are just very near to each other such as frequent text message or phone calls and even video chatting since we are now at the modern age of technology then why not use that technology for a better purpose. Lastly is that we must show our care for each other so that love and affection would always be there no matter what happen.

Through the advancement of our technology nowadays, it will be very possible to connect to any person in any parts of the world. If you want your relationship to last, you can find a way to connect with each other. Social media has been useful for a lot of people today. They use it to connect and to stay updated with their loved ones. You can used these as a tool for communication in order to keep the love alive. Through communication you connect with each other and make your relationship even stronger.

Open communication is always important in a long distance relationship. It's easier now to communicate with each other since we are in the era of technology. Communicating would no longer be hard to achieve.

Trust, trust, and trust. For me that's the only key to make LDR relationships last longer. I mean, if you really trust your partner, then you should never worry about the things he/she will do without your knowledge and presence.

I also believe in the power of constant communication and the power of putting your partners in to your thoughts so that you can always remember them.

We know that trust, patience, and communication is important for keeping LDR. Aside from that is to keep your doubts away. Instead of arguing, tell them how much you love and misses them. Whenever he is not online, always chat him with sweet messages and keep him updated on what you are doing on that day. Show him, love, every day instead of negativity that would really help a lot.

As for me, I encounter that LDR also, even if it is not so far, for me it was an LDR, because we are not together. Trust and Loyalty is the best key to keep your relationship longer. Like me, I trust him, even he is far and we are not communicating always, all I think is is I trust him. And now we are in 8th year in our relationship and we are thankful for that.

Yeah, using Skype for communication is a good idea. I like this method in order to communicate with others.  But I found another way to keep my long distance relationship. I met her 4 months ago via a dating website (not on this forum). First time I was not clear about herself. But after passing 2 months everything is clear to me. She is much pretty, cute and beautiful at the same time. She is much conservative and taking care of my family well.

Great to have a chat with her. :)

I agree with you on this assertion that one of the major problem that affects long distance relationships is that of feeling insecure for being far away from each other. Some people have a serious trust issues, and being in a long distance relationship will be very difficult for them not to have issues on daily based on cheating and infidelity.

Things have changed for the better now that technology is available to ease the difficulty of a long distance relationship. In my days, we would depend on the postal mail. You can imagine the hardship that we went through when my husband was assigned to work in London for 4 months. The turnaround time of postal mail is 2 weeks which means what I sent today will receive a reply after 14 days and that is if my husband would reply quickly. And using the phone was exorbitant so we cannot call often. But now with the internet, I don't think there is reason enough to be very lonely when your lover is away. All you need is constant touch and my advice is a daily chat or perhaps twice in a day just to keep the minds occupied.
