AVOID AWKWARD SITUATIONS:
Maybe there are things that your partner doesn’t like but you want to do it. In this case, either you don’t do it or you inform your partner beforehand to save yourself from awkward situations. Tell them how you feel about the particular thing and make them understand that it is not that bad so that your partner will not feel neglected and ignored.
DO THINGS TOGETHER:
It can be your birthday or their birthday, anniversary or any festival. Try to make sure to make time for some celebration together. It doesn’t have to be fancy or any other place, you can do it inside your room, in front of mobile or laptop wherever, do similar things to make your bond more strong. It will make your memories and can strengthen your relationship as small things matter more.
RESPECT AND HONESTY:
Just because you are in a relationship, don’t forget that respecting each other is forgotten. Respecting and being honest with each other is very important in every relationship. Respect each other’s privacy, friends, families, and feelings. Be vocal about how you feel about each other. It is way better, to be honest than to be fake and give false hope.
KNOW EACH OTHER’S SCHEDULES:
One of the major problems of any long-distance relationship is Time. There can be time differences and different schedules which can create misunderstanding.

Nowadays, getting social and making new friends is super easy and people are being comfortable. Make sure to keep update about your partner’s social activities. Social media preferences can show the current scene of the person. You can guess a lot about that person. Don’t be too much skeptical about every single post but just be considerate about what your partner is posting and following.
GOALS AND LOVE AT A PARALLEL:
Long-distance relationships come with a price and hardships. You have to take your goals and love simultaneously. Always make a clear vision about what you want in life.
