Those who study abroad better know that it’s a life-changing experience and a real adventure. It takes a rational and a courageous decision to leave home for an extended period.
If you are in a committed relationship while studying abroad, here’s what you can do to keep a long- distance relationship going successfully.
1. Keep the honesty flowing
Honesty should be present in every relationship. You’ll need to beef up your honesty game a little bit higher if you are abroad and in a committed long distance relationship. Never hide anything from your beloved one.
2. Stay in touch, but don’t be fanatical
Don’t spend everyday missing your significant other. Make an effort to communication with your partner as you explore new hobbies, make new friends and discover new opportunities.
3. Be patient and caring
Studying abroad may come with several disagreements to your marriage. Arguing is healthy for relationships , but you might find that they become quite different when you are separated. The trick is that separation itself can become a subtle reason for your fights. Whenever you find yourself arguing, try to understand what is the root of the argument. Try not to make things even worse.
