7. Go the extra mile.If you are already miles away, this is a good idea. Do something a little extra for your loved ones. Remember the feeling when you get a little extra free ice cream topping on your cone? Sweet. That is how he or she will feel when you do the little things that show you have went a little more for your love. Indeed, love starts with giving, and the best thing is you don't have to give a lot, just give a little, more frequently. (Hint, I also find it really important to give something extra every 28 days). If you don't get it, ask your girl friend. She will be happy to to know that you understand. In fact, i had to give a lil extra yesterday. Even it it means having two hours sleep yesterday. But she did thank me for it. You are welcome babe!
Also, variety is the spice of life. For example, try something new and fresh or find out what your partner likes. Surprises are the sweetest things and some may take less effort than you think. , Make a card, chocolates, flowers, bake a cake, give her a pleasant surprise are places to start, but thats only four ideas and if you don't do more guys, it gets really old really fast! If you want your long distance to work, going the extra mile is not just a requirement, it must become a habit. (Most people take it as a curse!)
Sometimes, our giving may go unrecognised. You may have put in a lot of effort in something you gave and did not receive the thanks you expected. It happens, but then again, time might just turn things around because, you only receive what you give. So if you give love,you will receive love. If you give more than just love, that is exactly what you will get in a relationship.
