The saying “absence makes the heart grow fonder” might ring true, but absence does not have to mean not being able to keep up with your partner’s life and actions. With these ideas on how to keep up with your partner, not being left out of the loop should be no problem. Communication is key in any sort of relationship, and you can take it from me. I haven’t spent much time with my boyfriend as of late, not nearly as much as we used to, because of lots of things, but the important thing is that we don’t keep each other in the dark about what is actually going on in our lives.
If you and your partner don’t spend much time together, you might be going a little crazy – but you don’t have to. I’ve learned that steady, thorough communication helps a lot when you don’t get that much time to spend with one another.
How to Keep In Sync With Your Partner If You Don’t Spend Much Time Together – Emails
This is a surefire way to help get things off your chest and keep each other in the loop. We use emails to discuss plans, ideas, this or that, what we did with our day, etc. Of course, you might just use them as a short little hey, what’s up kind of thing, but we usually don’t spend hours at the computer.
How to Keep In Sync With Your Partner If You Don’t Spend Much Time Together – Social Networks
Facebook is, of course, designed for keeping up with each other. You can post on each other’s walls, subscribe to your partner’s status via cell phone, or even write each other messages on there if you prefer that to email. You can see pictures and see what they are up to with a couple of clicks even if you aren’t directly talking to one another at the time.
How to Keep In Sync With Your Partner If You Don’t Spend Much Time Together – Cell Phones
If you and your partner have cell phones, texting can be an excellent way to keep each other up-to-date. It’s quick and easy and works wonderfully for short messages to say “hey, work 7-11” or whatever.
Cell phones are also useful for calling each other whenever you might need to get a hold of that person. Speaking of calling people…
How to Keep In Sync With Your Partner If You Don’t Spend Much Time Together – Telephones
Scheduling in phone call time can be great as well. Maybe pick a time one day or however often you feel is necessary a week and just talk to each other. If you can’t talk face-to-face, hearing each other’s voices can be very comforting and can help you stay connected.
How to Keep In Sync With Your Partner If You Don’t Spend Much Time Together – Make Time for Each Other
No matter how busy you are, you have to make time for one another. Maybe you can’t spend every day together or there is just too much going on, etc., etc., but that doesn’t mean you can forget about actually spending time on each other.
Try scheduling one day a week that is an “us” day. Reserve that day for you and your partner to do whatever you want to do. That way you know better than to make plans on that day and you know for certain when you will get to spend some time together to do whatever it is you want to do together. Of course, that doesn’t mean you can’t make time else where in the week, but this way you will at least ease your mind when it comes to wondering when you will get to spend any time together.
