How do you stay close to your long distance mate?
Being in a relationship is hard enough as it is, but what about when you are in separate states, or even separate countries? ¬†Here are some tips on how to stay as close in a long distance relationship:
¬†1.¬†Skype: Skype is a lifesaver for long distance relationships.¬† Seeing your sweetheart‚Äôs face every day makes the distance seem much more bearable.¬† Even if you chat for only five minutes, talking face-to-face will keep your relationship alive better than any text message could.
2.¬†Share photos: Send each other pictures.¬† Even if it‚Äôs only what you had for lunch, share your life with your partner.¬† Send pictures of things you would normally laugh about together, or something you tried for the first time together and are passing in the grocery store.¬† Keeping your partner in the know will make reuniting seamless.
3.¬†Make countdowns: Countdowns can definitely help you through a¬†long distance relationship.¬† If you have visits planned, count down to those.¬† Or, if you have a birthday coming up, count down to that.¬† The smaller and simpler the count down, the better they will make you feel, until the ultimate countdown of being able to be together for good. ¬† ¬†¬†
