To allow your relationship grow, focus on keeping an open communication. Talk about your feeling honestly and freely.

3. Not keeping your word

If you agree on a date with your loved one who lives kilometers away, be sure to keep your word and meet as agreed.

4. Distrust

Do not allow paranoia to take the best of you. Trust your partner and please do not go on their social media to stalk and start an argument when you find photos they have taken with people of the opposite sex.

5. Being lax on sending gifts

Surprise her with gifts every now and then. A lady will definitely be overwhelmed when she gets into the office to find a gift from her lover who is far away.

6. Never learning your partner

Even if you two only connect through phone calls make a conscious decision to always learn your partner.

Ask questions like, why she enjoyed the movie you took her to watch the last time you guys met, why he prefers black other than blue etc.

Ensure you are always learning her so that when the two of you are eventually together, you do not feel like she/he is a stranger.
