You may be in a long distance relationship – even if you share a bed every night.
When you think about it, long distance relationships are really “low in-person time together” relationships.
We recently talked to a doctor who worked opposite shifts as her doctor husband. She said it felt “like sharing a home with a ghost.” Many people are so busy that their once a month date night is the only time they really get to talk to one another.
Think about it – how many hours per week do you spend with your lover? How many of those hours are devoted fully to being together as lovers, connecting?
For many couples, time together is far too scarce. This distance (whether physical or not) can work for and against your love life.
On one hand, distance creates longing and anticipation. You may cherish your time together and not take one another for granted.
On the other hand, distance can create emotional chasms between you and you may find it hard to connect when you have the chance. You may feel a lot of pressure when you do have the chance to be together, and that pressure can make intimacy fizzle out.
Whether you live in the same home or on different continents, there are strategies for staying connected and maintaining a great love life when time together is scarce.

- find out how to get all of your needs met (without relying on one person!)
