How can you make a long-distance relationship less challenging?

Cupid’s Advice:

You can’t control who you fall in love with, or where they live.  If you unexpectedly find yourself  in a long-distance relationship, Cupid offers a few ways to help shrink the distance:

1. Stay in touch: Technology has come a long way.  Gone are the days when you could only use the postal service, or had to pay huge fees for phone conversations.  Now you can text, email, Skype, and even talk on the phone for little to no money at all.

2. Old school: Although it’s easy to spend hours chatting and texting, it can be much more romantic if you compose some old fashioned snail mail and send it to the one you love.  The sentiment will not be missed.

3. Getaways: With the savings on communication, why not plan a romantic interlude with your sweetheart.  Take a weekend getaway in your respective cities, or choose somewhere in between and meet halfway.
