Hey Gents,

I was just wondering if anyone could share some tips on making the "honeymoon period" last. Brett and Kate wrote an article on the main page about this (found here) but I can't exactly follow all the advice for several reasons. First, I'm not married and don't believe in premarital sex. All those tips are irrelevant to me right now. Secondly, I'm in a long distance relationship, America to Europe, until the spring when I'll move back to the States. Physical intimacy is out the window too but it'll be back on the table in time. Anyway, my plan now is to write my girlfriend regular letters, Skype a few times a week, and text if the time difference allows it. Not too much, I don't think, but not too little either. 

So for the guys who have been here, or even if you haven't and you know your way with the ladies, what are some ways to make the honeymoon period last? I don't want to put blinders on just for the euphoria, so what are some ways to keep spirits up, both now as its an LDR and later when it won't be?

Thanks for the help everyone.

I suppose you have the correct assertion that no marriage=no honeymoon. So is my effort futile? Perhaps. So how would I "affair proof" my relationship according to JonEdanger?

LDRs work when there is a specific purpose and a definite end to them.  That's not usually the case, it may be that this is the case.  She may be able to hold out, she may not.  There is some truth to the saying, "distance makes the heart grow fonder."  There is also quite a bit of reality in the "Dear John" letter.

There is no step-by-step manual for this.  It will either work, or it wont.  You need to be stoic about it all.

Agreed. 

That includes her taking it up with Bubba while you're gone, and not wanting to end your relationship when you get back.
