If you’re in an LDR with someone a few towns, states or even countries away, you know how draining and downright impossible it can feel sometimes to have to live your day-to-day life away from the person you love. Whether it’s a temporary situation or the only one you’ve ever known, there are little things you can do to make your connection a little stronger and the pain of being away from each other hurt a little less.
1. SKYPE OR FACETIME YOUR HEART OUT.
Thankfully, it’s 2016 which means technology is on your side. Being able to hop on Skype or FaceTime to see your S.O. anytime you want is the best gift your LDR will ever have. It’s not as good as being in the same place and being able to actually touch them, of course, but it does a pretty damn good job in making you feel a little less far away.
2. REMEMBER THAT SNAIL MAIL IS YOUR FRIEND.
It’s old-school and pretty romantic to send one another cards and packages via the regular mail. Plus, who doesn’t love getting mail that isn’t bills? Sending a card “just because” or putting together a package for birthdays, anniversaries and holidays is thoughtful, sweet and is bound to make your partner feel loved and special.
