Khloe Kardashian and Tristan Thompson are expecting their first child together next year. The couple is currently living together in Cleveland after being long distance for about a year, splitting their time between Ohio and Los Angeles. Khloe recently said the separation was “complicated” and “frustrating,” according to People.
“Nobody says dating long distance is easy—I am so happy Tristan and I live together now!” Khloe wrote on her website
. She shared some tips for others who are in long-distance relationships. “The extra miles can sometimes make many aspects frustrating. Things can get complicated—you might get sad and lonely at times. (Don’t worry, BTW, that’s totally normal!)”
“However, being long distance also means you get to appreciate one another on a deeper level without the distractions of physical getting in the way,” she continued. “And it makes simplest things— like holding hands, eating at the same table, feeling each other’s touch, taking a walk together, smelling their hair—the sweetest when you’re in the same city again.”
The reality star and Good American designer also said that “teasing is good and healthy," writing: “Drop little hints about something you want to try in the bedroom next time you see them. It will give you both something to look forward to until you’re together again!”
“There might be hundreds or even thousands of miles between you two, but you can still share moments," Khloe said. "Watch your favorite TV show over Facetime or do something productive, like go for a run or organize your closets together.”
“At the end of the day, this will be the most important thing to keep in mind as you continue to date and get to know each other. Do you both share the same dreams and ideals?" she wrote. "Do you both want the same things out of life—and, more importantly, the relationship? If the answer is yes, then the sacrifices you’re making now will pay off big time in the long run.”
