It looks like the Kardashians will be taking over Dallas, Texas, as Khloe prepares to relocate in order to follow her hubby, NBA star Lamar Odom.  Odom, who is now a former L.A. Laker, was traded late Saturday and will now be a Dallas Maverick.  The Kardashians are a very close family, and People.com reported that Khloe has mixed feelings about the move.  “We are all sad but positive energy gets you farther then negative,” Khloe told a Twitter follower.  However, later she posted, “I have no doubt about it!  I am excited : ) I know this is for a reason.”

How do you remain close with your family when you must relocate for your spouse’s new job?

Cupid’s Advice:

Just because you’re moving doesn’t mean you have to lose contact with your loved ones, especially with all the technology that we have today.  Visiting each other is an obvious option, but Cupid has some tips to keeping close with your family and friends while you’re apart:

1. Hear them: Everyone has a cell phone these days, which means hearing each others’ voices is just a phone call away.

2. See them: If you don’t have a web cam built into your computer, then invest in one. Video chats are more intimate than phone calls, and this way you can actually see each other.

3. Feel them:  The art of writing a good old fashioned letter is dying, but the anticipation of waiting for a letter in the mail from a loved one is still very much alive.  Letters are very intimate, and you can feel each others’ personalities within the words.  A letter is also something you can save to read when you’re having a bad day or missing your family.
