Having met the woman of your dreams through an online dating site, perhaps you’re wondering now how you could sustain the relationship online while you’re both dealing with preparing for you to go over to Russia or her visiting your country. If you look at statistics figures, it is not unusual to find a big percentage of couples who have been at one point going through their relationship before their wedding while being away from one another. It doesn’t matter whether the lovers met and carried out their relationship on an online dating site, or met personally on a holiday or through a dating agency and had to go back to their countries to arrange for the paperwork of being together, this just means that there is hope for long distance romances to work out.
It’s essential to be in constant contact.
Communicating constantly is essential to any marriage and even more so with online dating since the aspect of being physically together is not yet possible. Calling and emailing constantly will make you feel more connected and closer. These are two important factors necessary in every flourishing marriage. Thankfully, all the online couples know that technology is on their side. There is no shortage of ways to be in touch every day, moreover, these methods of communication are not too pricey. Every online dating site will allow you to use functions like web cam chats, emails and virtual dates – it’s easy to keep in touch this way.
Set your expectations, boundaries, and goals with each other.
It’s normal to feel a little insecure in a relationship. It’s possible there are some other men who have been emailing your stunning Russian girlfriend, and who are in love with her too. She might be wondering too if she is special enough or even the one and only woman you’re chatting to. While these musings can’t be controlled, what is under both your control is how you deal with things like these together. By setting expectations and clear boundaries it is possible to handle online dating and avoid misunderstandings and arguments. Since your common goal is to get married and be together, it is quite reasonable to demand from each other to stick to certain boundaries especially when it comes to members of the opposite sex.
Have frank discussions about money.
There are many stories around about the frauds and scams on any online dating site. Hopefully you’re not suspicious of your long distance girlfriend anyway, but to get over any suspicions of scams and frauds, talk to your Russian girlfriend about finances. As an example, if she tells you that she went shopping, you could always ask what she purchased, for how much, and for what purpose. From her answer you can see if your girlfriend knows how to manage her money. You want to have these discussions, particularly if you are just a regular guy working hard to make a living.
