HomeLong Distance Relationship QuestionsHow to deal with loneliness when you had to be apart with your partner for the first time?
Rila Thomas Staff asked 2 months ago

My partner and I have been together for almost two years. The longest we've ever been apart is four months. We both found it really tough when we had to be apart for the first time. We were both so used to being with each other all the time that it was really hard not being able to talk or see each other. How do I deal with the loneliness?

The best way to deal with loneliness is to find ways to stay connected. Even though you can't be physically together, there are still ways to stay in touch. You can video chat, send each other photos or messages throughout the day, and even just talk on the phone. Find things that you can do together even though you're apart. Maybe you can watch the same movie or TV show and then discuss it afterward. Or maybe you can start a new project together. Whatever you do, make sure you're communicating often and finding ways to connect.
