Long Distance Relationships - Surviving another Lonely Friday Night

During the weekdays being in a long distance relationship isn’t so painful at least not when compared to long weekends at home alone. During the week, I’m busy with work and classes and sometimes fitting in a workout so I’m not as focused on feeling lonely. Then Friday night comes, and while all my friends are busy planning dates or family events with their partner, I’m left wondering what shows and re-runs will be on TV.

I look forward to the longer chats with my boyfriend on the weekends, but those calls still don’t make up for not having him next to me. It’s even worse when you get invited to an event, and you’re missing your “plus one.” Given that there’s nothing I can do but make the most of my weekends alone, I’ve come up with some tips on how to survive the lonely days when you’re in a long distance relationship:

Enjoy the Extra Time You Have to Yourself: There will come a time when your love returns home and your weekends will be so jam packed that you’ll longingly think back to the days when your time belonged just to you (and your favorite re-runs). You’ll have yours and his family functions to attend, more errands to run, and inevitably more laundry to do and that’s before the two of you decide to have kids.

So enjoy the time to yourself. And the fact that you can do whatever you want whenever you want yet you still have a partner who supports you and is only a phone call away.

Watch the Movies You Wanna Watch: Do you like romantic comedies but your boyfriend makes fun of them? Or, do you perhaps like scary movies, but they give your girlfriend nightmares? The next time you’re experiencing a lonely Friday night, head to the nearest Redbox (or Blockbuster if they still exist in your neighborhood) and rent all the movies you love that your partner refuses to watch. And as you’re renting whatever you want, you can smile as you watch all the couples fighting over which movie to pick.

Spend More Time With YOUR Family & Friends: Having your partner near is great, but you usually wind up spending less and less time with your family and friends. Since my boyfriend has been gone, I’ve spent more time with my mom, and it’s been great. I cherish this time with my family because I may not get as much time with them in the future. Use the time you have to yourself to spend time with the other people in your life that you love.

I’ll be the first to admit that long distance love is tough, but there can be a few upsides. Given that the divorce rate is so high, it doesn’t seem like being next to your partner everyday is any easier. Make the most of your situation and use it as a positive time to catch up with friends and family and perhaps explore a new hobby – all of the things you wouldn’t ordinarily have the time to do. And when your partner finally does return, you’ll be a more interesting and secure person. Here’s to a great weekend!

  12. Hi, my girlfriend of a year had a bit broke up with me. She had kept how she was feeling smothered. I also felt smothered at times too but we didn’t communicate things properly and our relationship lacked the conversation piece because am a quiet person. She said she felt pressured in social situations because i wouldn’t be the most outgoing person. I very much loved her and need to get her back and my last chance was love spell. I entered on the website http://doctorokpamenpowerfulspelltemple.webs.com, because i read that he has a lot of positive feedback with his spells. I’m not disappointed because my lover came back to me within 24 hours after getting a love spell from the Doctor called Osemu Okpamen. We are happy couples now and if you need any kind of help, contact him via his website or Email here; doctorokpamenspelltemple@hotmail.com or whats-app +2348135254384. Michael Snapp, USA.

  13. What else can i say rather than to thank Doctor Okpamen who God used to reunite my marriage. Each day of my life, i ask God to bless Dr. Okpamen for he has made my life complete by bringing back my husband to me and for this reason, i made a vow to my self that i will testify on the internet to let the world know that Dr. Okpamen is a God on Earth. My husband and i had a fight for three days which led to our divorce. On this faithful day, i came across a testimony of how Dr. Okpamen helped a lady in getting back her lover. So, i contacted him and explained to him and he told me that my days of sorrows are over that my husband will come back to me within 12 to 16 hours.. Could you believe it, my husband came home begging that he needs me back. Do you need any kind of help?
