Long distance relationships can be very challenging and hard on the couple. If you are going to hold on to one, make sure to talk daily. Specify a time with each other that you will connect by phone, face time, Skype, or whichever way you decide, but you have to be able to hear each other’s voices and have a real conversation. For long distance relationships emails and text alone won’t cut it. If you absolutely have to miss a day connecting, do not let two days go by before talking again! If you feel like this is overwhelming, you should probably end the relationship- you would be talking daily if you lived together!
