10 reasons why everybody in a LDR deserves a medal!

I think possitive vibes lead to: possitive thoughts, possitive actions and of course a possitive life style, that is why I always decide to find the best side of everything. This word needs more of this! Being in a LDR for almost 5 years (and still counting!) has taught me many things, today I wanna talk of some of the stressful situtations someone in a LDR has to live, reason why we are real strong and warriors of life!

That is why if you went through some of this situations in your LDR, you deserve a medal!  

Every relationship is unique, that is why every LDR has its own ingredients, some people is sorting some problems some other couples have no idea, so here I am just telling some general:


  1. How to communicate your environment you are in a LDR: this is a complicated situation maybe you find it difficult because of your family, because of your friends, or what is worst: because of both… Probably you won’t avoid thinking how to make them believe in your LDR and take it seriously.
  2. Overcoming different time zones: this is a really difficult issue in a LDR, if you don’t have it: congratulations!! If you have it, you know what I mean: having an app telling you his/her current time or calculating his/her sleeping or waking up time, trying to fit to his/her routine can be stressful at times.
  3. Communication: it is essential for every relationship, sometimes it is more difficult due to time differences but it is something you need to work on.
  4. Cultural differences: some of the LDR are also intercultural relationships, this means you have to deal with a new culture (the one of your loved one) try to understand and in some cases try to learn a new language.
  5. Connection: it is true, nowadays we have great ways of communication, Internet made things easier but connection problems still exist Skype or Whatsapp calls usually get stuck and Whatsapp or Messenger also get stuck sometimes. We are so Internet aholics and it is awful when we don’t have other way of contacting him/her than through Internet. What if he/she lost the phone or has no battery? This situations can make us go crazy, is not as easy as calling his/her home!
  6. Calculating how much money do you need for visiting him/her: this can be really frustrating as flight tickets are not cheap, so once you learn how much, you will have to start saving and saving and saving.
  7. Checking prices of flights: this is like a sport, something for doing quite frequently, because prices are changing every day, every week, so if you wanna get a deal, you should be checking the flight prices frequently!
  8. Being a solo traveller: this can be the best or the worst, just depends on you, but probably for meeting your boo you will have to travel alone (unless you have enough money for inviting someone of your family or friends). Travelling alone has something special: you have to be prepared for everything, you have to be prepared for solving every problem by your side, this can be really stressful but in my opinion its something everybody should do at least once!
  9. Thinking in every visit: being in a LDR requires plannifying visits, sometimes you will have to travel and sometimes your loved one will, sometimes won’t be possible due to lack of money or lack of holidays or other problems, this is extremely hard.
  10. How to close the distance: this is one of the most important stages of the relationship, of course will be stressful maybe you will have to obtain a citizenship and later get a visa or maybe you just have to think where to get married and live together, as simple and as difficult as this.  

For this (and probably more) reasons is that everybody who is or has been in a LDR deserves a medal, for sure this is not for everybody, so if you are in, feel really warrior and strong.

Now its your turn of sharing with us your experiences!

LDR New Year Gifts Ideas

Hello everybody, hope you are fine! This moment of the year is ideal for thinking about what we did this year, what we forgot, what was the best, what the worst…

We make ourselves so busy with this things that maybe we forget about the first gift of the new year, if you are in a long distance relationship you know how important is every little thing so it is time for thinking how to surprise your loved one and here I am giving some ideas about gifts for your LDR partner!

new years gifts

  1. Travel Diary: if you are good at handcrafting you can decore a notebook and give to your loved one for sharing every adventure! If you hate handcrafting or just don’t have time, you can buy either online or in a shop, for sure you will find the best option!
  2. Photo Album: as the previous idea, you can handcraft it or just buy, it is ideal if you send it empty because the idea is filling with pics (also Skype pics) taken during the new year!
  3. Feelings jar: you can buy or decore a jar and put inside little papers with feelings or romantic sentences, a shock of positivity for those difficult moments everybody in a LDR go through.
  4. Send a letter with your handwriting: nowadays it looks rare reading a letter with handwriting, it is a pitty because the handwriting tells a lot about feelings and personality, reading a letter written by your loved one is not the same as reading a mail. So it can be great if you send him/her a love letter!
  5. “10 reasons why I love you”: as we told in the previous point, the handwriting adds value also if you write and put in a closed envelope 10 (or more) reasons why you love him/her it will be a great gift!
  6. “Our New Year Targets”: experts say that if you write your targets and read them frequently, there are more probabilities you achieve them, so it is great if you think in writing them in a piece of wood or in a whiteboard, this are some suggestions but of course you can think in others!


Hope this ideas are useful, most of them are easily achievable and cheap, this is the best. Now tell me: would you add some?? I love to listening more ideas!! 😀

Why being in a LDR is not the same as having a platonic love?

I am surprised with the lack of education that exists about the long distance relationships, we are in the XXI Century, people should not look at us as ufo when we tell them we are in a LDR, but surprisingly, it happens.

It took me time to realize why people is still surprised, but I reached to a conclusion I wanna share with all of you!

People tend to confuse a Long Distance Relationship with a Virtual Relationship, they tend to think being in a LDR is a sign of immaturity, that it is because we don’t wanna be involved with real people and have real relationships and so on.

But hello!! I am a real person and my loved one is a real person also, we are not robots or toys, being in love with someone who is far doesn’t mean we are in love with someone that does not exist.


Great example is when someone is pregnant, all the family is loving the baby, despite they can’t see him/her they can feel him/her and love it even before they see or touch them, is not an imaginary baby, it is a real baby.

Well, waiting for seeing and touching the baby takes 9 months, sometimes seeing and touching your loved one can take more (or less) than this time and it is always real, never product of your imagination.

Sometimes the parents are the first in worrying and thinking that being in a LDR means having an imaginary relationship, a platonic love, so far from the truth! We are not kids talking with an imaginary friend, we are young adults that feel in love with real people, we are developing strong feelings and more deep and real than some others relationships.

This is not virtual love, not platonic because the distance is just a moment, a test in the relationship, it won’t last forever and at the end, no matter how time it will take, the distance will be closed and the couple will be together and more stronger than never!


How to beat the time difference

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.

time difference

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.


When a Short Distance Relationship Becomes a Long Distance Relationship

Hi, my name is Maria and I will tell a very simple story, but everything simple has its tricky part. There it goes…
The person I love the most in this world and the one who has taken me to travel all this way and which will accompany me to the end of this one is called Arnau.
Arnau and I are currently 17 years old. Until July of last year we were together, living in the same city (Barcelona) and seeing each day, in school from the age of 8 or so. We were not friends or knew the other (so to speak) until 14.

It was in the last year of school (where we had 15) when we approached. In the end-of-course trip that is made in the schools was where the flame was lit. On that same trip, one of the nights, we started to talk. That night I said to myself: “Someday, I do not know when, we’ll be together.” And I was not wrong hehehe 😛
We did not know that we were happy with each other until the end of last summer, when a friend we had in common unveiled my secret. And in the end it turned out that he had the same. We wanted to be together.
But the problem came when 20 days later, he was taking a plane to his new home in Canada, without knowing for how long.
Arnau had always dreamed of going to Canada to study, but when he was denied a scholarship, his whole family thought that the best idea was for them to leave there.
At that moment my thinking was: How will I be with a person who lives 6,000km and I do not know when I will see him again?
But he change all my thoughts, my way of seeing this great challenge, he taught me that if there is love, you can, that you have to fight, that, after all, this makes us stronger and that as long as we have the one another, everything was going to be okay.
I was in love with that boy, I had to fight.
And so there began the hard part, not knowing when we would see again, the bad connection of Skype, the few hours to talk, money to send packages, tears at night, birthdays, … Christmas. ..
It was very hard, especially when it was the first serious relationship for both of us. We were children!
But soon we matured, we realized that we were so strong that the distance was not going to be able to break us.
The good news came when I was able to buy my first (of many) ticket to Canada. I think I’ve never bought anything with such a delusion.
For Easter he crossed the Atlantic alone and for the first time.
It was the 20 happiest days of my life so far.
And then, after much waiting, our summer arrived in Spain. He was back.
This summer has been the best so far. 50 days have passed like 2, but it has been awesome.
(photo 5,6,7)
Our future plans? If things go well with Arnau, we can be together Christmas, and if I can save enough money to fly from Spain to Canada, for Easter we will see each other again.
Our vision for the future is to be together, there is no other possibility. We are very clear about what we want and what we fight for. For us. To overcome the distance. To prove to all those who did not bet. For teaching that it is possible. For a life together. And above all, above all, to love us more than ever.
And before saying goodbye to this amazing page, do you guys thing it would be good if we create an instagram page, a blog, or a YouTube channel about our LDR?
I have been thinking about it for a long time but I do not decide and I would like you to give me your opinion.
I hope you have enjoyed our history and good luck to all those who are in an LDR!
Here are our IG names for if you want to follow! Thankyou very much!


Follow Your Heart!

Hi everybody, today, 6 september 2017 it is a special day for me and my BF, today it is 3 years since I met my love for first time, for that reason I wanted to do something to surprise him, so I decided to write this post to remind him how was our first meeting and for letting others LDR Community members read how we met.

I’m from Uruguay and he’s from Turkey, more than 7.000 miles separate us. 13 months after our first chat, we decided to meet in Italy. For me flight was extremely long and expensive, we saved money and it took us 13 months to our first meeting. We knew this instance was so important, so we plannified it carefully, we decided to meet in Italy, a country where both were going to be foreigners. It was not my first flight, so despite the lenght of the travel I was calm, on the contrary, it was his first flight so he was very nervous.

We had a plan A and plan B, his flight was going to arrive first than mine and he was going to wait me on arrivals. So when my plane landed I ran to arrivals, but he was not there, I felt completely lost and as I was in foreign country I had no Internet in my phone, so I didn’t know what to do, I start feeling impatient and nervous…

I tried to keep calm and my heart spoke and decided I had to go back (to lugagges place) I felt like I had to go there, not enter to Italy. So I followed my instinct. I started to talk with people, I wanted Internet for my phone, when I obtained it, I realized probably he was without Internet, I was right.


Despite all the adverse things going on I was feeling calm, It was like I was feeling for first time after 13 months my love was in the same place as me. I was right… 

Suddenly, while I was walking with no direction I found him, he was searching his lugagge, his flight delayed and he had no way of telling me. Fortunately my heart spoke to me and I listen!!

Today, three years after this moment, our first time together I wanna tell my love I would do everything again, because he is my love and I don’t regret of anything!!

And for the LDR Community I wanna tell they should take risks and sometimes the best is following their hearts, yes it is possible!!

And if you will meet your partner in a foreign Airport, be sure both will have Internet connection, LOL!
