Keep the online fire burning
If your online man lives near your area, keeping your romance alive might be less of a problem. However, if you happen to be in a relationship with someone several miles away, keeping the fire burning requires more effort. A long-distance relationship is much harder to sustain. Most often, they just die a natural death. Phone calls and e-mails alone are not enough to sustain the relationship. But if you feel he is worth it, this should be able to help you.
Make time for him
It is easy to get caught in the hustle and bustle of life that you can easily forget someone across the miles. Set aside a time in a day to communicate with him. Send him an e-mail or e-card to let him know you are still around.
Write love letters
Love letters may sound dated for most young people but they are surely one of the best ways of keeping the other person interested. When you are separated by great distance, reassuring notes that you still love the other person can work wonders.
Trust your man
Once you have decided that your online man is worthy of your affection, trust him. Don’t be insecure of real-life threats – his colleagues at work, his friends, etc. Remember that until you decide to move one step further, that is, stay together in the real world, both of you have separate lives to lead.
See each other virtually
You can try videoconferencing. There are several software available that can help you do this. . You need to invest in an inexpensive camera and headset. Search the Net for free software or if you desire those that come with bells and whistles, look for reasonably priced ones.
Use the Net’s resources to communicate
Some relationships die down because it is too high-maintenance and phone bills definitely top the list. Fortunately, you can now make free phone calls through the Internet.
The technology evolves too fast that it is difficult to prescribe specific products. As of this writing, the most popular free phone calls site is www.skype.com. To make sure you get the updated resources, simply type in “free phone calls” in google or yahoo and you will be faced with a multitude of choices.
Send snail mails
Even if you have seen each other, sending new photos, either digitally or by post, strengthens your relationship. The likelihood that you will be forgotten is less if you have photos to remind him that you are real.
Plan your next meeting
As with real-life romance, online romance can’t be a one-way thing. Men still want to play the pursuer’s role. Let yourself be pursued even virtually. Let him initiate the mails and then you respond. If you find yourself e-mailing and sending e-cards most of the time, evaluate whether your online romance has become one-way.
Don’t be complacent with your looks
Don’t fall into the trap of neglecting to take care of yourself just become you have found a mate and that you won’t be seeing him soon. Prior to meeting him, you probably were watching your diet and exercising to make sure you look attractive. Continue your routine; make it a part of your habit. Do this not just for your online man but more for yourself.
