There's no quesiton that being so far apart from your boyfriend or girlfriend can take a serious toll on your relationship. From the rushed phone calls to having to schedule time just to talk over Skype, being in a long distance relationship can be really hard. But that doesn't mean that you should let the miles between you drive you further away from your love. After all, maintaining any type of relationship takes some work.

One of the ways to strengthen your bond with your S.O. is to keep in constant contact. Just because you can't see him in person doesn't mean that you can call, text or even video chat him. Apparently, about 70% of long distance relationships end in a breakup when you don't talk about what you expect out of the relationship. Even though those statistics are pretty scary to think about, it puts everything into perspective. That's what makes it SO important to stay in touch. If you want to get really creative, you can even write a love letter, which is ten times more intimate than any text or slightly grainy phone call. The point is that in order for any relationship to work, you have to put in the effort.

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
