Keeping a long distance relationship alive and strong, is not an easy task unless you have these few pointers in mind:
Avoid Excessive Communication
Quit being overly possessive. You both do not have to communicate all the time to keep the relationship going. You don't need to compensate for the distance by doing more, as it might only make things worse. Build a life where you are, make friends and have fun. Do things that make you fitter, smarter, and happier. Remember, investing in yourself is another way of investing in your most important relationship. Start now.
Do Not Focus All Your Free Time And Energy
Your long distance relationship will suffer if you invest it all. Go have dinner with your friends or folks, catch up with them over a movie and a pizza maybe.
Be Open, Honest, And Trusting
Figure out the best time to communicate with each other. Make each other feel special, even without seeing each other. A little extra effort will always be needed for a smooth long distance relationship.

Video Call Each Other As Texting Is Not Enough

To maintain a strong relationship, you need to talk on the phone, but prefer video calls as much as you can. To see the person is a different feeling altogether. It is still virtual chatting but seeing the person revives the love which is fading at times.
Feeling A Little Jealous Now And Again Is Normal In A Relationship
A little jealousy can even spark fresh attraction and a new appreciation for your partner. However, uncontrolled jealousy can lead to a destructive combination of suspicion,possessiveness, insecurity, anger, and shame. If you are feeling jealous, figure out how to control the emotion before it starts controlling you. It is not easy, but it can be done.
If need be, communicate with your partner, tell him/her what the problem is and sort it out. Do not keep it inside your head and let it brew until it becomes too much. Communication is the key to all relationships.
Avoid Dangerous Situations
Avoid situations where you know very well that it will displease your partner. Either not do it at all or tell your partner beforehand so as to reassure him/her.
Visit Each Other Atleast Once A Month
It is very important that you meet each other in every few days. This will keep a check on the frustration level. Sense of touch is your comfort zone when it comes to your partner. Sometimes, we all know that even the physical presence of your loved one is enough of a comfort.
Some trips will be full of great memories and carefree times, and some will be full of fighting over big or small issues and that is okay. All relationships are full of ups and downs and it is necessary to have that balance to make a relationship last.
