Long-distance relationship can be kept healthy through the means of effective communication. In everything the couple undertake, it should entail on how they communicate and choose their words. There having no physical intimacy and the communication being poor, then that means that the relationship can come to an end any time.
Right and appropriate choice of words in their statements will motivate the continuation of a conversation. Good communication will make them imagine that they have the mutual feeling of imagination of being close to each other.
This is how couples who are in a long-distance relationship should communicate:
1. The two partners should ask open-ended questions to keep the discussion going. Asking such questions will make him or her be able to explain themselves in details, hence increasing the duration of the discussion. One should avoid questions that have a straight answer, for instance yes or no.
2. You should not be a mind reader by not trying to assume that the person you're talking to or chatting with is okay. You should take a step of letting them explain how they are feeling and how they are fairing on. This will show that you care much about them and will increase the bond between the two of you.
3. The two partners should know that the communication is a two-way in which one should not be self-centred by just want to talk about himself or herself. There should be we, You and with less I, and it will be indicated by how you discuss your future as a couple and plans you two have.They should not judge how the other person is feeling by the words they use, but should give them time to tell it.
4. The couple should set time for each other to strengthen the love, they have together. This will show that everyday you will have time to show your partner how important hole, or she is in your life. One will be able to explain what he or she wants from the other lover.
