Are you starting to wonder if whoever coined the phrase "absence makes the heart grow fonder" was ever involved in a long-distance relationship? The truth is, when many miles separate you and your honey, keeping your connection strong is tough regardless of your fondness for each other. In the wonderful new film Like Crazy, Jacob, an American, and Anna, a British exchange, fall in love at school in L.A. The couple is forced to try to maintain their relationship from a great distance when she is banned from the U.S. after overstaying her visa.
While you and your long-distance boo may not necessarily be separated by an ocean and the laws of citizenship, an LDR of any distance is still a struggle. By establishing a few ground rules and engaging in creative methods of communication, however, you can make a long-distance relationship thrive. Before you give up on fanning the flames of your long-distance romance, consider employing these strategies to keep your long-distance love hot.
