Long Distance Relationship at University

Hi everyone, today's post is all about having a long distance relationship at university. I know that maybe not all of you will be interested in this, but personally this is something I'd find helpful and interesting to read. 

(P.s. Please excuse the awful picture of me! All my nice pictures are at home and I'm at uni!)

So me and Ben haven't been together that long compared to most couples. W've been together just under 8 months, but it's been the best 8 months ever. I'm not ages away from home, its just under a 2 hour drive, but for a home-bird like me it's too far! Ben is also a chef so he works crazy hours and never has weekends off! But so far, despite missing each other loads, its working out well. So here are some tips and some ways we've made a long-distance relationship work;

1. FaceTime whenever you can! Phoning each other is great but face timing is better!

2. Try and make time for each other wherever possible. Obviously this may not be possible if you live in different countries, but going to meet one another, even if you don't see each other that long, is worth it. Ben's driven up later after work one night, had a day with me and then left super early the next morning to get to work. And sometimes I'll come home on a weekend just to see him for a couple hours once he finished work. 

3. Don't get angry if they can't visit you one day. Long distance relationships is bad enough, but having arguments about it too makes it worse. Just accept that they may not be able to visit you all the time, and see each other when you can. 

4. When you do see each other, make a fuss of each other! Go out on dates, cook with each other, movie nights, whatever it is that you can enjoy together!

If you have any tips for long distance relationships then please let me know in the comments!

  1. Love this! I live away from my boyfriend of over 3 years now. Luckily we both have weekends off so most of the time get to spend them together, but going from seeing him nearly every day to every weekend was hard at first! Phonecalls and little visits, even if they're not for long definitely make it easier. xx

    1. Completely agree, going from seeing them constantly to not much is rubbish! xx

  2. This are good tips for sure. I've never been in a long distance relationship before, and i don't know if i ever could be in a long distance relationship. I feel like it would be tough, but staying in contact is key for sure.

  3. Hello these are good tips! I used to be in a long distance relationship and there was over 3 hours drive between us. Things that helped us were having a planned date/something that were going to do together so we knew for definite the next time were going to see each and we could look forward it.
    We also would try text good night and good morning to each other - it seems lame but it's nice to know the other person is thinking about you


    1. Love the idea of having a date to look forward to! Completely agree with the texts, so lovely to read them xx

  4. I've been in a long distance relationship and it was so hard but now it's easier I guess with Skype and whatsapp video calls but it's deffo worth the wait when you get to see them xx

  5. I feel like step 3 is very difficult and a lot of people forget to accept thing how they are. I mean if you are detrminated enough everything will work out really well

  6. Long distance is so hard no matter what stage you're at in your relationship. Great tips!
