Dating is hard.
But throw a few thousand miles between the relationship? Feels nearly impossible.
Sister, I’ve been there. When I was dating my now husband, Matt, we moved from being in the same city, to long distance, to being married and living together, to doing the long distance marriage thing for again awhile.
And let me tell ya – it wasn’t easy. Especially when we didn’t even see the next season of ‘distance’ in our future again.
While that season isn’t exactly one I’d wish back into my life – there are so many things I learned from that season that I now bring into my marriage.
If you’ve ever been far away from someone you love, you know, you have to be so much more intentional with your time and communication. And I’ll be honest, I can sometimes take for granted having the luxury of my husband living in the same house with me and slack on the intentionality of our conversations and date nights.
So there are definitely times that I will pull out tips and tricks to keep the relationship intimacy turned to a 10 that I learned during our long distance season.
And if anyone knows this journey of long distance dating, it’s my friend, author, podcaster, and non-scripted tv series star, Audrey Roloff.
Audrey began dating her now husband in a long distance relationship. The way they stayed in touch? Love letters. Yep, the long lost art of letter writing.
While this may sound like a story line out of a movie, Audrey is here to tell you that this can also become your reality. Listen in as Audrey chats through the struggles, the triumphs, and lessons learned from her time of long distance dating and how to
illuminate parts of your past to clear the way to dream up your future.
Sister, if you find yourself in a long distance relationship at the moment, we know the struggle. One piece of advice Audrey would give?
