Making a relationship work requires constant communication. If you or your finance’s work demands time away from home, finding ways to talk to each other, even if you’re miles away from each other, is made easier with Skype. In fact, you can even record Skype video calls with apps such as SuperTinTin, so you can watch your conversation over and over again, and keep you motivated despite stress from work.
But how can you make a Skype call successful, exactly? Below are some tips you may want to keep in mind.
1. Set a common schedule
One of the first things that you need to set is a common schedule where making Skype calls will be convenient for both of you. If you want, you can even write down reasons why either of you may not make it during your Skype ‘dates’ to avoid disappointments.
2. Get in the mood
Before sitting in front of your computer and making that call, take a moment to breathe and analyze your mood so that if you’re having a bad day, you won’t vent out your day’s frustrations to your finance. In the first place, they did nothing wrong, right? If you can’t help it but tell him or her how sucky your day was, explain and thank them for listening.
3. It’s okay to be cheesy
Long distance relationships mean lack of physical presence, which can be a difficult challenge for a lot of couples. Make sure that you never compromise sincerity and don’t forget to tell just how much you love him. Always make your significant other feel special and never be afraid to talk about your feelings. Make up your lack of physical touch with words of love and emotions that could be felt even if you’re thousands of miles away from each other.
4. Ending the call
Hanging up is another problem when it comes to conversations. To avoid that awkward moment and argument on who will end the call, why not agree on a routine that you can do before hitting the end button? This way, neither of you will be left hanging on air or will feel abandoned after ending the call.
