Set Your Own #RelationshipGoals

Everyone has seen pictures on social media of couples hiking, riding bikes, working out together, hugging and kissing each other, and the list can go on and on. Most of the time those pictures have the caption “#relationshipgoals.”

A lot of individuals and couples strive to meet these relationship goals they see across social media. I say, make you own #relationship goals!

Each relationship is different. What works for one couple may not work for your relationship. You have to find what interests you and your significant other and just do it!

Maybe traveling isn’t your favorite activity to do, but maybe you are very creative and artsy. Instead of trying to travel the globe because you saw that was someone on Facebook’s relationship goal, why not have a cute and cozy arts and craft night at home with your partner.

Relationship goals don’t have to be huge, elaborate, and/or expensive. A walk in the park, a nice night indoors making cookies, or even a Netflix movie marathon can be a relationship goal you set.

The only relationship goals that should be standard across the board is finding someone who can make you happy, treat you fairly, and love you unconditionally.

Now I’m not saying that you can’t have the same relationship goals as other couples. I know I do, but majority of the goals should be based on your own likes and interests.

You should be able to have fun in your relationship and be able to communicate with one another about any and everything.

You may not know how to create your own #relationshipgoals. These simple steps to help you out:

1) Make a list of traits/activities that are important to you or fun to do when in a relationship
2) Make sure your goals are reachable
3) Ask your significant other to help you set goals for your relationship
4) Don’t set too many goals, so you won’t get overwhelmed
5) Celebrate when you meet your goals!

What are some of your #relationshipgoals? Know that your goals can change over time and that’s not a bad thing!

The Truth About Long Distance Relationships

Most college students would agree that long-distance relationships are challenging, but the relationship can work if the couple wants it to.

There are numerous ways to help make long-distance relationships successful. One way is by talking to your significant other every day.

Whether it’s by Skype, on the phone, or texting, communication in long-distance relationships is vital. Couples should talk every day because it will help them remain involved in their partner’s life, without being in the same location.

If a couple talks every day, they can talk about what happened at work, some new renovations to their home, or about their children or pets. The couple is not together, but sharing details about their daily activities, helps the couple keep up to date with what their significant other is doing.

Another way to help make long-distance relationships work is by doing activities simultaneously while you two are apart.

For example, my boyfriend and I are in a long-distance relationship and at night we watch the same shows together. Since we watch the same show, at the same time, it makes us feel connected.

Being optimistic is another important tip to remember when in a long-distance relationship. The relationship will not work if you don’t have faith that it will work.

Staying positive and focusing on the future you and your significant other will have together will help make the distance not seem problematic.

Make sure to visit each other as much as possible when you are in a long-distance relationship. Visiting at least once a month or every other week will keep the couple’s bond strong and show that you still love spending time with your significant other.

A method I use in my long-distance relationship is giving gifts. By giving gifts I mean that each partner should give each other gifts, so that the other partner will have a little reminder of your love.

My boyfriend bought me a stuffed panda and every time I move from my home to my college, I bring it with me. The gift could be anything from a poem, keychain, ring, or even a pen.

As long as the gift comes from the heart, it will be appreciated.

So don’t worry and stress too much about your long-distance relationship and don’t be scared to get into one. Follow this simple guideline and you will be on your way to having an awesome long-distance relationship!
