Long Distance Relationship Will It Lasts?

giphy

This modern world, many people are trying online-dating and many couples find themselves in long-distance relationships. But do they last? Being together with your partner is believed to help and maintain romantic relationships by giving people a chance to understand each other, and yet, some long distance relationships tend to last. Researchers suggest that one reason long distance relationships last is because they are likely to have the idea of having a romantic relationship with their partner or the tendency to describe their relationship in unrealistically positive terms.

Couples that are in long distance relationships tend to look back about their relationship in a more positive way. Being positive in the relationship can lead them to believe they have a lot more in common, regardless of whether or not they really do. Partners in long distance relationship have the advantage of always showing most positive way possible in maintaining the idea of the relationship. In other words, people in long distance relationships rarely see all the daily ups and downs of their partner’s mood and attitude.

There are times that when they close the distance there are some couples break up because they already know their partners personality. Distance can prevent partners from learning about each others negative qualities thus only creating an overly positive impression. The relationship may be happy and stable they are not together but in reality can become quite disappointing once back together.

How can you make your long distance relationship last long? Some couples said that long distance relationship can last long by increasing the amount of communication. And this modern world, there are plenty of ways to increase it. Social media sites, messenger, text messaging, phone calls, and emails can supplement face-to-face communication. Others said that TRUST is also important in this relationship. Don’t give 100% you need to  And BEING COMMITTED is one of the reasons,too. Even though your partner is miles apart you are committed to your partner and you are not allowed to look for another partner because the reason is you miss your partner.

GOOD COMMUNICATION with your partner is one of the key so your long distance relationship will last. Make sure to talk about everything, just as if you see your partner every day. When you are unable to close the distance yet, you and your partner need to develop other more creative and unique ways to become intimate with each other. Partners that take active and strive to get know each other will have a more realistic idea of their relationship, and will make their Long Distance Relationships Last.

QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough…”

In a Relationship : Foreigner Boyfriend

tenor.gif

I am in a relationship and I am PROUD of it. My boyfriend is a foreigner and he is English. It’s just that there people who will judge why do you like foreigners. I know that there are people that can relate to me but there are some that feels envious about the relationship. I do feel bad whenever I hear people murmuring or gazing at us (especially me )  whenever we pass by them. I’ve experienced that when he was here for a vacation ( his first visit ). I know that you can’t stop other people from criticizing the relationship.

tumblr_n8i0uzAZIe1ts7f01o1_500.gif

Before I prefer to have a Filipino boyfriend because I know that there will be spark between us. After experiencing the heartbreaks I promise myself not to have another Filipino boyfriend. I don’t judge all of them but after the same reasons of having my heartbroken I think it’s enough. ( Enough… enough…!!!). Now, let’s start… I will share that there are disadvantages and advantages of having a foreigner boyfriend.




DISADVANTAGES AND ADVANTAGES:

6357898528737533251164453246_pocahontas.gif

  • Cultural differences this can be a disadvantage and an advantage because it’s good that you can learn a new culture and you will more expose to it but sometimes there are couples that are having a conflict because of adapting of each others cultures.Be more optimistic to it because you are learning another culture and I think it’s a cool thing to do ( especially food you will discover new taste and special kind of foods )

  • There is an instance that you can have  miscommunication because of languages ( Language Barrier ). There are times that learning another language and pronouncing the words properly is difficult. Learning each others language is fun and interesting because it can help you to communicate more to your partner’s relatives and friends.

  •  Migrating to which country will stay ( if it’s her or his ). Who will migrate is you or your partner. There will be a lot of discussion to make and the decision making can be a headache. So the best thing is the both of you need to talk more about it and try to share their ideas about migrating.

  •  This is the fear of all, being in Long Distance Relationship. Not being together. Miles and miles apart form each other. This can be hard. I know because I am in this situation but communication is the key. You need to communicate with each other just a simple or quick text to send to you partner is enough. Loyalty needs to be there,too. If you are in a relationship you are committed and it means it’s only your partner even you are two worlds apart.

  • There are times that other people will think that you have partner that is a foreigner because of money or visa. Discrimination of other people is always there and present at all times. I experienced it and there are times that it was difficult to handle and I can’t hide my feelings. I don’t share it to him but he knows that I was hurt whenever other people are murmuring or gazing at us.



QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“You can talk with someone for years, everyday, and still, it won’t mean as much as what you can have when you sit in front of someone, not saying a word, yet you feel that person with your heart, you feel like you have known the person for forever…. connections are made with the heart, not the tongue.”

LDR Problems and Ways to Avoid it

graphics-hello-457644.gif

Hello guys! It’s been a while that I haven’t been posting in here. I do admit that after the LDRBN stopped my blogger instinct seemed so down. I wanted to write and post something but I don’t know how to start and what to write. I felt lame after so I was busy with work, going out with friends and family and “ME” time. I am not really back on track but while I was browsing my news feed on Facebook. I read many things about long distance relationship and some caught my attention. There are a lot of problems in long distance relationship but good thing LDR couples manage and solve it right away. I will just share some problems about LDR and how to avoid it.

♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥

PROBLEM #1

giphy.gif

  • B.O.R.E.D. – Yes, it happens all the time. There are times that you are sick and tired of the same conversations that you have and you don’t know what topics you can talk about. The result is the long silence on your Skype Video dates.

AVOID IT !

  • Remember that only boring people get bored. You have to expand more topics. Look for topics that can spice things up ( NOTE : I am not talking about the naughty topics.) You can search for topics that can make your partner curious so they can ask many questions. If you are in an interracial relationship, you can teach your partner your language ( NOTE : basic expressions in your language ). Teach your partner some expressions that they are not used to hear it all time. At least you can both expand your knowledge.

PROBLEM #2

635834190425591709-257539619_who is she.gif

  • Jealous Much – Because of the distance between couple and there are times that when they go out with friends I mean very close friends we can’t handle ourselves to be jealous. There are times that we are too afraid to lose them. Sometimes it’s the instinct that a human has.

AVOID IT !

  • You have to be true and be real on what you feel. It’s better that you say it with honesty than keeping it. Don’t be afraid to say it. When you are saying or talking to your partner you have to calm down and listen also listen to your partner side of the story. Don’t judge everything that you see.

PROBLEM #3

couple-fighting-o.gif

Arguments and Fights

    – It’s not easy if you argue and fight especially if you are in a long distance relationship. Misunderstandings and a lot of misunderstandings will occur. Temper can’t be handled carefully can be stressful.

AVOID IT !

  • Do not debate with each other. Always remember to breathe in and breathe out.If the other person is angry let that person loose himself or herself. Don’t go at the same feelings with your partner. Try to solve the problem together. You are partner so don’t try to argue with other much.

PROBLEM #4

tumblr_mhzrtcrPrg1rijbg1o1_500.gif

  • Missing too much – This is one of the challenges when you are in a long distance relationship. It makes you crazy because you miss your partner. You wish that you are with him/her.

AVOID IT !

  • Try not to think much about your partner. Do not focus too much. Think of other things where you can get him/her off your mind. Go out with friends. Go shopping or window shopping. Travel or go on with a trip with your family or friends. Try to blog or read books. There are many things to do.

PROBLEM #5

tvsnow2

  • No Signal. – This is the worst problem in long distance relationship. I have it all the time. Sometimes signal is all gone at all. You try to turn off and on your phone but it’s the same.

AVOID IT !

  • This can’t be avoided. Just make sure that you have a good or great signal. If you have a better signal you try to send a message to your partner about it so your partner will not be worried about you.

♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥ === ♥♥♥

These are just few problems that we can or encounter when you’re in a long distance relationship. I hope that it can somewhat help when you are in a LDR. Thank you for reading my post!

NOTE : I miss writing! 🙂

Our Song and “Us”

Alvin.png

Every time I am watching romantic movies there’s always a scene that songs are playing. In the back of my mind, I wish I am the woman on that movie. There are a lot of songs that I dedicated to Nigel and it’s mostly love songs.He is not a fan of it but I appreciate he is trying to listen to it. If you love listening to music you have a lot things on your mind and you make each songs as your soundtracks.

I am thinking what will be the best soundtrack for me and Nigel. For us. For our relationship. I love listening to songs that are around 80’s and 90’s because the lyrics of the songs are more meaningful and sweet. I love to listen to Air Supply, The Carpenters and a lot more. The songs are catchy and you can really relate through it. I also love revival songs. Here in the Philippines there are lots of singers who revives songs from the past.The same songs but different styles of singing. Mostly ballad and mellow tracks. I wanted to include OPM ( Original Pilipino Music ) on my post. Here, I will mention Filipino singer/s who sing the revival or the original song.

The songs that I choose are the best for us. These are revival songs by my favorite Filipino singers. They did the revival few years ago but it’s still famous here in the Philippines. I think the songs really fit for the both of us. While reading my posts, you will know why I choose the songs in here. My relationship with him was unexpected and because we in a long distance relationship we miss each other every day even if we are having our Skype Dates. I will share the lyrics of the songs in here so you can check it out. Who knows you might download it.

GLORY OF LOVE – DINGDONG AVANZADO AND JESSA ZARAGOZA

It was originally sang by Peter Cetera. A 1980’s hit and was written by him and David Foster. The genre is pop / soft rock. Year 2000’s ” New Found Glory ” did the revival. This song was included in Jessa Zaragoza’s album. I love to listen to this version because it’s like they give more meaning to the song especially they are couple so I can relate to it. They did some edit of the lyrics of the song and it’s great and that makes the difference of it.

WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS SONG?

The song reflects my relationship with Nigel. While listening to it I am picturing it out the scene in the movie with him. Rainy day in the park just having fun and enjoying the rain. Nigel is the only guy who that gives me mixed emotions, makes me so special and always telling me that I am his forever and my soul mate. He is my dream guy I know that for sure. No matter what happen he will fight for our love.

LYRICS:

Dingdong : Tonight it’s very clear, as we’re both lying here
There’s so many things, I want to say
I have always love you, I could never leave you alone

Jessa : Sometimes I just forget, say things I might regret
It breaks my heart to see you crying
I don’t wanna lose you, I could never make it alone

Dingdong : I am a man, who will fight for your honor
Jessa : You’ll be the hero I’ve been  dreaming of
Both : We’ll live forever, knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Jessa : You keep me standing tall, you help me through it all
I’m always strong when you’re beside me
Dingdong : I have always needed you, I could never make it alone

Jessa : You are the man who will fight for my honor
Dingdong : I’ll be the hero you’ve been dreaming of
Both : We’ll live forever, knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Dingdong : Like a knight in shining armor, from a long time ago
Just the time or seize the day,Jessa : take me to your castle far away

Jessa : You are the man Both: who will fight for my/your honor

I’ll be the hero that Jessa : I’ve been dreaming of ( You’ve been dreaming of )
Both: We’ll live forever, knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Both: We’ll live forever, knowing together that we
Did it all for the glory of love

Both: We did it all for love, we did it all for love
We did it all for love, we did it all for love

EVERYDAY – AGOT ISIDRO

I know that are wondering about this song and it’s not familiar. This is an original Filipino music. Agot Isidro is a Filipina recording artist, actress, host, and TV personality. This is a ballad song and this a 90’s hit here in the Philippines.

WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS SONG?

This is like a long distance relationship. Checking the song lyrics there is distance between the lovers in the song. I can relate to the song because I always miss him. Because of the distance I really want him to know that I may not be there but telling him how much he means to me is like my presence is there with him.

 LYRICS:

Got a letter in the mail today
and im glad you’re doing fine
U tell me your missing me
and its cold in new york city
well me and the girls were alright
thinking about you night after night
and if you feel the same way too
just imagine me whispering to youchorus:
everyday ill always love you
everyday im always thinking of you
everyday’s another lonely day without you
everyday you’re here beside me
everyday im always dreaming of you
everyday i will be right here waiting for you
everyday…hoo
It’s another long and sleepless night
And thoughts run through my mind
Guess I’m just feeling lonely
It’s been so empty since you’ve been gone

I’ll be holding on for it won’t be long
I’ll be counting the days til i see u home
And if u feel the same way too
Just remember these words ill say to you

Repeat chorus

Everyday…everyday

SECRET LOVE SONG – LITTLE MIX FEAT. JASON DERULO
This is a modern song and you can hear on the radio playing. A ballad song that gives me chills every time it plays on my playlist. Little Mix a British girl group and consisting of members Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock, and Jesy Nelson. Jason Derulo is an American singer, songwriter, and dancer.
 WHY DID I CHOOSE THIS SONG?
I am hooked with this song since I looked for the song lyrics and it hit me much every time they sing this. There is something in this song that I can’t explain. It’s like a secret love between the two person. They have mutual feelings but they can’t express their love to all. I tried to relate this to my relationship because we are far from each other and I feel envious to other couples that are so close to each other and they can do anything.
 LYRICS:
When you hold me in the street
And you kiss me on the dance floor
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t it be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours

We keep behind closed doors
Every time I see you, I die a little more
Stolen moments that we steal as the curtain falls
It’ll never be enough
It’s obvious you’re meant for me
Every piece of you, it just fits perfectly
Every second, every thought, I’m in so deep
But I’ll never show it on my face

But we know this, we got a love that is homeless

Why can’t you hold me in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours

[Jason Derulo:]
When you’re with him, do you call his name
Like you do when you’re with me? Does it feel the same?
Would you leave if I was ready to settle down?
Or would you play it safe and stay?

Girl you know this, we got a love that is hopeless

Why can’t you hold me in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours

And nobody knows I’m in love with someone’s baby
I don’t wanna hide us away
Tell the world about the love we’re making
I’m living for that day
Someday
Why can’t I hold you in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that we could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours, I’m yours

Oh, why can’t you hold me in the street?
Why can’t I kiss you on the dance floor?
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t it be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours
Why can’t I say that I’m in love?
I wanna shout it from the rooftops
I wish that it could be like that
Why can’t we be like that? ‘Cause I’m yours

Why can’t we be like that?
Wish we could be like that

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
NOTE : I should have posted this to LDRBN but soon our community will be closing down so I will just share in here. The posts that I will do in the future will be dedicated for LDRBN and LDRBN friends and I hope we will continue to support each other.

Signs that you LDR is REAL

a-lamp-with-heart-desigh-hd

I am in long distance relationship for more than a year now and this year is his first visit and first meeting. I have mixed emotions. I am happy, excited and nervous at the same time. There are a lot of thoughts running through my mind. I know that my relationship is still fresh not like others that’s been together for many years and years. How do we know if your long distance relationship is REAL? Below are the signs that long distance relationship is for REAL.

(♥)→(♥)

  • DISTANCE Doesn’t Matter. – United Kingdom to Philippines. We are 6,000 miles apart. Distance is not the hindrance if you are both in love with each other. You both think that this is a just a test to you both and it can make your relationship stronger.

 

  • You’re both COMMITTED. – When you say you are in a relationship or committed to each other it means that it’s only between “me” and “you” or “us”. No other people are involve in your relationship.

 

  • MUTUAL feelings and love. – I know there are times that it’s difficult to be sure if your partner feels the same way as you are feeling. Be sensitive and be more observant with each other. You can really feel it if your feelings are mutual.

 

  • QUESTIONABLE future together. – If you are in a long distance relationship there should be plans in the future together especially on how you can both close the distance. Where to stay? What to do? When is the right time? If you think that you can’t see each others future it’s better to call it quits than to hope for nothing.

 

  • This relationship is not an ILLUSION. – Yes, this is really important. You really have to be sure that he or she is not just in your dream. You have to wake up and face the real world. Hey, It’s the REALITY!!!

(♥)→(♥)

These are just few signs that I can share to everyone that are in a relationship especially in long distance relationship. I will be sharing more not only for long distance but also to close distance couples.

Reasons Why I Love My English Man

I am in love … I know it’s true love … He is not just an ordinary guy  but he is my English Man … He means a lot to me .. And soon we will be together …

giphy.gif

These are things that are running on my mind this time. It’s been a long time that I haven’t posted in here. There are lots of things happens in this past weeks and some are shocking. Anyway, I am will just share why I  love my English Man.

(♥)→(♥)

  • His Charms

Even if he is bullying me and making fun of me once in a while but he started to use his charms on me it’s all gone. He has this armor that can attack me if I am starting to get mad at him.

  • His Smile and Laugh

My boyfriend doesn’t smile or laugh a lot if there are people seeing us doing Skype. When it’s just the two of us those rare smiles and laughs are always there to make me happy. Once a guy is ” acrimonious ” in nature and when he smiles in your conversation it means a lot and it changes every thing.

  • Being Straight-forward

I know it’s kinda weird that I like him that way but it’s good for me because I can know how he feels for me and for others. There are times that I can’t stop him from being frank but I know he is just saying what’s on his mind and I do respect it.

  • Being Cool and Positive

He is the only person that I know that never been angry at all. I even asked his sister about it. He is a cool guy and never gets mad easily. If I am down and feeling stress he always reminds me of many positive things and never give up and just cool down.

  • His Accent

He doesn’t have strong English accent but whenever he talk or speak I am trap in him. It’s like being hypnotize by him. It’s one of the reasons why I am in love with him.

(♥)→(♥)

tumblr_n3zaplekHD1rv07a4o1_500
