This article is ideal for those who have time difference with his/her loved one, if you don’t have time difference, you are soooo lucky, some of us envy you hehehe 😛
I can guess you read the title of the post and thought “there is no solution for it”, well of course there is not a magical solution such as buying a time machine that allow us to live at the same time, how weird but here I will tell you some advices based on my personal experience… My loved one and me have a difference of 6 hours, we have been dealing with this time difference for more than 4 years.
Being in a LDR changes the life of every person, it is an integral experience in some cases (as its mine) it came with multicultural exchange, risks, efforts. I know some of you have less time difference, yey! Some of you some more, auch, in every cases I would love hearing your experiences.
Well here I am telling you how I deal with it, when my bf and I started our relationship I was still at University, so I was almost all the time busy, it was really really difficult having a time for us. But we always knew this situation was going to revert soon, so after I got my degree I started to have more spare time, so we started to set our daily time, sometimes we were having Skype, messaging or sharing something, our “holy time” or “happy hour”.
We agreed in the needing of having a time where everything was just about us, the world was stopping just for giving space to our “holy time”. For me it was in afternoon, for him it was at midnight. We decided to have this space everyday, sometimes Skype was impossible, so we were messaging or doing some kind of activity. Sometimes we were setting alarms, at the beginning it was a little difficult to have the behavior of our happy hour but once we got used to it was like food, something we were needing everyday.
The health of our relationship improved, we were more happy and motivated. Every LDR couple should have their holy time no matter how many hs of difference they have.
Just remember, if there is love, there are no excuses, one day has 24 hours for everybody its up to every person how they take advantage of it.
