Being in a long distance relationship can be tough at times, but there are plenty of ways to make it work. One of the biggest challenges is finding ways to stay connected and close to your partner when you’re apart.
There are lots of little things you can do to stay connected, like sending each other photos and videos, staying in touch via text or email, or even scheduling regular Skype dates. It’s also important to find ways to make your time apart more bearable, like keeping busy with your own hobbies and activities, or making plans for future trips to visit each other.
Long distance relationships definitely require some extra effort, but if you’re willing to put in the work, it can be totally worth it!
12 cute things that couples can do to stay connected despite the distance between them.
Send each other care packages with your favorite things. This can be anything from snacks to movies to flowers. It will help keep the connection between you alive while you’re apart.
Make a photo album or scrapbook to document your time apart. This is a great way for both of you to reflect on what has happened and look forward to what is still ahead. You can also use it as a means of bonding over memories that span more than just the two of you.

Hi, I’m Jess! I closed the distance with my boyfriend on October 12th 2019. I lived in Los Angeles and he lived in New York. Sometimes it feels like we’re still getting used to being together, but it’s been really nice to have someone to come home to at the end of the every day.
