Relationship Advice During A Lockdown

{AD} The lockdown hasn’t been easy for many couples whether couples who have been in a relationship for years or people who have only started to date recently which is totally understandable because you can’t meet each other. I think only couples who have been doing long distance are not really affected so much by the lockdown because the distance and not being able to see each other often was something that they were already used to whereas for other couples – this is completely new territory.

But I think even for them, not knowing when they are going to see each other again must be nerve wracking and stressful. I don’t think there is anything that will make anyone feel better in this situation when you only want to be with your significant other but I wanted to share with you some advice that will hopefully help you feel better during this uncertain time.

BE PATIENT

I know it’s easier said than done but try to be patient, not only with your partner but with yourself as well. I don’t think anyone would have prepared themselves for this apocalypse so it’s completely normal to feel frustrated or angry at times but you shouldn’t lash out to another person because of that.

It’s so easy to apologise afterwards but depending on how that person takes it, this might have an impact on your relationship. You might not realise it now but whether it’s after a couple of weeks or months, the way you handled things during that time will resurface and might make or break your relationship.

Obviously, this is an extreme scenario but what I’m trying to say is try to stay calm no matter how hard the situation is. Especially if it’s something you can’t control because there is literally no point of doing anything. If one starts to get frustrated over something, try to reassure the other one. Miscommunication can happen so easily and you don’t want your partner to misunderstand or misinterpret something when you are not able to go meet that person.

FOCUS ON THE POSITIVES

In addition, try to focus on the positives instead of the negatives. Yes, what you are going through right now is hard but it’s only temporary. Eventually you will get to see each other again and get to spend time together. I think this might be even more special if you are chatting to someone during the quarantine through dating apps or websites because once you’ve made a connection with that person, the next step would be to meet in person so this will be definitely something to look forward!

I know this might sound cheesy but for some people, this might be the light at the end of the tunnel. There will be something good that might have come out of this difficult situation. That’s one of the reasons why dating someone who resides in the same town/city as you will be a great advantage in this situation. If you are looking for a Dorset dating website, there are so many websites available based on your situation and what you are looking for – a good example would be the Mature Dorset Dating website.

GIVE ATTENTION TO EACH OTHER

Another important thing is to give attention to each other. You might be Facetiming or speaking to each other 24/7 on the phone but that doesn’t mean anything if you don’t pay attention to how the other person is feeling. Sometimes it’s not about how long you spend talking to each other but more about your conversations.

Obviously, when you can’t see each other – the next thing you want to do is be on the phone with that person constantly but if you start to do that for an unhealthy amount of times, you will definitely get bored. This is definitely not something bad whatsoever but it can definitely turn into something unhealthy in the long run.

I know some couples who speak to each other on a daily basis but what makes it work is the fact they don’t speak to each other for hours and they focus on themselves separately as well as together. A healthy relationship is about two individuals who are happy to be with each other as well as being by themselves. Do something productive! Focus on your hobbies and passions or even do something fun at home! You might even play video games together, you don’t have to do everything by yourself but try to find a good balance.

  1. I’ve actually loved it because this is the one time in my life I haven’t felt guilty about being single. No self loathing for not going out and meeting women because I’ve been ordered by the government not to! Haha

  2. Great post 🙂 I myself am in a long distance relationship (different countries), and for me it is very hard, because I cant go to the same country as my boyfriend.. and we dont know how long it will be like this 😦
