Our topic today is Long Distance Relationships

Olga writes: I’m dating a man who had to move cross-country due to a job promotion. I have an established business and life in New York and wasn’t ready to move so we decided to try long distance. Initially everything was going great but lately he’s started to be less available and now I haven’t spoken to him in 3 days. Can you give me relationship advice–Should I move on or try to salvage what we have?

Long distance Relationships need a lot of care and nurturing-You need to reach out to him and confront him with these questions:

  • Are you still interested in this relationship?
  • If so–What makes this relationship different from others you have had in the past?
  • What are ways you can work on together to feel more connected and maintain momentum given our long distance challenge?

If he is willing to put in the effort then make the decision together. If not, then tell him the distance is too much and that you respect his decision but have to move on.
