Dating an older man long distance
A long-distance relationship might not be your ideal set up, but it all depends on how you think about it.Instead of seeing it as a burden, think of it as a test.So have a discussion with your partner and set all the ground rules: exclusiveness, commitment, open-mindedness, and so on.According to dating coach Fran Greene in her chat to Elite Daily, the first step to a successful long-distance relationship is discussing how it actually affects you when you’re physically apart: “It is so hard, yet so important, to talk with your partner about your feelings about the separation.It starts with acknowledging and accepting that you [are] physically apart and how it [affects] you, your partner and the relationship.” The second most important rule in a long-distance relationship is to be honest. You might not believe it, but the moment you start lying, your partner will start to feel that something is wrong.
A daily “good morning” and “good night” message is enough to show that you love them and think about them, but that’s not enough.
In every long-distance relationship, you and your partner will eventually start asking yourself: why are we doing this?
The pain, struggle, and yearning will all start to feel pointless after a while, especially if you don’t know what your end goal might be.
Having similar interests and hobbies gives you a reason to be in contact and it keeps the conversations fun.
Let’s say the new person at the office asks you for a drink after work.
