If quarantine culture and the “new normal” have you discouraged, it’s understandable. As humans with five major senses, we need human contact. We thrive on touching, hugging, interacting, and sharing.

If you’ve met someone you like, and yet have to maintain a long-distance relationship from them because of lockdown (which is still happening in some communities), then take heart. LDRs are difficult sometimes. But the truth is thanks to modern technology, we don’t have to go very long without interaction.

For that matter, there are at least 10 advantages to a long-distance relationship worth mentioning. Here we go…

1. You can fast-forward to greater emotional intimacy.

You can learn a lot about a person when you remove the distraction of sexual tension. The more you try to connect emotionally, the greater the intimacy you feel. You don’t just like each other…you fall in love faster, you feel emotions more intensely, and you long to be closer with him. Sometimes it takes a while to reach this peak in typical relationships where you don’t talk as much. Longer conversations bring about deeper bonding.

2. You get a lesson in trusting each other.

Living apart but still being together is a great way to get rid of jealousy. You can encourage open communication and trust by keeping a safe distance while remaining committed in thought and feeling. There’s no way to supervise your partner. There’s no way to keep tabs constantly. You learn to trust each other.

3. You improve communication between the two of you.

It’s a challenge to communicate when you are always together in the same house. Sometimes body language or other non-verbal signals communicates information or mood. So what happens is you stop actively talking and just sort of learn to coexist. But when you’re online you have to be creative AND communicative. You have to express yourself more without the convenience of gesturing, humming or using other physical signals. Everything is explicitly stated and this helps you talk more.

4. You learn to practically resolve conflict.

When you’re living together tensions are high. Arguments escalate quickly because of emotion and defensive feelings. But when you’re communicating via text or phone, you get distance from that intense emotion. You’re able to take a step back, think it over, and stop typing or calling. You don’t immediately go on the defensive because of a physical argument. You can take a practical approach and discuss the problem, while listening to your partner. Then you can act and avoid making the issue about conflict. It’s about negotiation and compromise and that’s easier to find when you’re in a LDR talking online.

5. You appreciate physical dates all the more so.

The more you’re both stuck at home, the more you miss each other! That’s the point, right? You’d rather be in each other’s arms than having to keep your distance. But being patient and waiting for the right time to see each other actually works to your favor. When you do finally meet and do something active and fun, the memories are enhanced. You feel more emotion and enjoy meeting face to face all the more so. What a great way to add value to your future date, by taking a break and building it up in anticipation!

6. You have more time to devote to achieving your own personal goals.

That is a very important step in creating a strong bond of equal partners – that both of you having personal goals and motivation to complete those goals. Having a purpose in life, apart from the romance itself, is a sign of a strong union. You have an equal partnership and work towards self-improvement on your own. This makes both of you stronger as individuals and that creates a more team-focused partnership in love.

7. You learn to be happy and independent.

Whereas some relationships are troubled by neediness and possessiveness by one partner, long-distance relationships are independent by nature. That means both partners get their own alone time and space. You get your own hobbies, ambitions, and free time. Then you get together later on and have the time and energy to appreciate each other. Then, you bring your best qualities as independent and mature people to a relationship and build a strong foundation.

8. The relationship becomes about so much more than just attraction.

It’s not just about attraction since you don’t have to be physically distracted. You can pay better attention to what he’s saying on the phone or even read a longer message through email. Without sexual tension to distract you, you think less about attraction and more about lifestyle compatibility. You learn how to get along and how to live with each other after sex stops being the big deal that it is during courtship.

9. You learn more about yourself, not just your partner.

All this me-time is a good thing because it gives you time to learn not only your partner but also yourself! You get more time to be self-aware, to analyze your dating patterns, and grow as a person. A long-distance relationship gives you time to meditate on what you want and visualize your future. Be honest with yourself and determine how to be a better mate to your partner.

10. You become part of each other’s daily lifestyle, something to look forward to.

You’re not just a date anymore! When you’re in a long-distance relationship you become a part of his daily life. You become his silver lining that the end of every hard day. You make him happy and he looks forward to seeing you. He loves to confide in you. You’re basically roleplaying as husband and wife before the fact, since the contact happens every day and you get accustomed to your partner’s daily schedule. Practice becoming part of your man’s life and anticipating how he goes about his day. What can you do to help and how can he help you?

As you can see, it’s all a matter of accepting limitations but having fun with those boundaries. Explore new territory. Use your imagination to stay connected, even though you can’t interact in the traditional way. As long as your minds are melding together, that’s what matters, and that’s what creates a love connection.
