Hi, my name is Reka Morvay. I'm a psychologist, and I'm going to talk to you today about how to fix a long distance relationship. Trying to fix a relationship of any kind, even if you have physical contact every day is a pretty difficult endeavor, one that is made more difficult by the fact if you don't have immediate physical contact. So, if it's a long distance relationship then you just have that added layer between you that comes between you, and comes between your ability to problem solve together. So, you have to be really mindful when you have a long distance relationship to keep your communication lines really open. There's not much else that you can really do, because communicating is pretty much the only thing you can do long distance, so you're not able to walk up to the person and give them a hug and try to, you know, fix a problem that way. With that said the way to fix any relationship at all is first of all; try to figure out what's wrong. And usually, what's wrong in a relationship is that one or the other person's needs are not being met. So, try to figure out what it is that you have a need for that is is going unfulfilled that's making you so unhappy, and then try to communicate this to your partner in a non-confrontational way, so try to avoid degenerating into a fight about this particular issue. And then, see if you can come to a mutually satisfying solution, because you need to be able to work together with your partner to find a solution to your problem that is respectful to both of your needs and both of your personalities.
