Long distance doesn't have to be a killer in a relationship.

Keeping in touch with people who have left your life is not a trait all of us can excel in, and according to astrology, if you're one of 5 zodiac signs, you've got a special talent for actually following through on your relationship commitments (congrats!)

But then, if you are anything like me (one of the 6 OTHER astrological signs), people who leave become nonexistent. When saying hello once or twice a month becomes the hardest thing imaginable, you know you SUCK at keeping in touch.

Some people are surprisingly good at it, though, and it makes others (like ME!) totally jealous. Everyone wishes they could make the time, but for these people, it comes pretty naturally.

We all know that one person who is posting sweet Throwback Thursday pictures of her and her bestie. And you know she keeps in touch with all of her friends because she doesn’t go AWOL as soon as she graduates from college or moves to a new city.

I don’t know how she does it, but she is just so dang good at staying in touch, and that means a lot to the people who are less than perfect at connecting (and KEEPING connected) with old friends.

These ladies that are killer at keeping up with their long-distance (or long-term) friendships are constantly sending cute dog videos or funny memes to their college BFFs who live in different corners of the country. And they would NEVER miss a Skype call with their childhood next-door neighbors.

I can’t even remember my childhood neighbors’ names. Ugh, it's unnerving how good they are at this.

Whether you know a girl who can just make a new friend at the coffee shop and turn that into a lifetime friendship, or it’s her teacher from kindergarten, she always keeps a close connection with everyone.

These zodiac signs believe that their friends — long distance or not — are what make their lives meaningful. They handle the different time zones and buy expensive plane tickets just to keep what they value close to them — and that's admirable.

Not to say that people like me DON'T value these things, but let's just say that the rest of us may not have it in us to keep going on a thread of a relationship.

Only certain people can make it work and are THE BEST at keeping in touch, and looking to someone's horoscope and to the stars is a great way to find out who those dedicated people really are.

So who are these mysterious zodiac signs who are creepily good at staying in touch? See if your sign is at the top or the bottom of the list.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Taurus is SUPER reliable and such a devoted friend. No matter the distance, she will always be a call away.

But please give her at least 3 months notice of your departure because she does not like sudden changes. AND she really doesn’t like when people leave her life altogether.

She will get over her sadness soon, though, and probably visit you every month. Phone calls and text messages just aren’t enough for her, and she will make the journey to be by your side.

Touch is very important to her and virtual relationships just aren’t doing it. But don’t worry, she will pay for her own plane ticket.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

First off, Leo knows she is irresistible and definitely knows you’ll be wanting to hit her up one week into moving across the country. But just as much as you want her, she really LOVES you.

She is extremely passionate about her friends and takes every relationship very seriously. She’s also warm hearted and deeply cares about your new life in a new city.

But when she comes to visit you, don’t expect sleeping in or lounging on the couch, although she LOVES to do that.

She will make sure that you and her make the most of your time together. All because she misses you SO much. And you’ll know it by the big ol’ bear hug she gives you every 5 seconds you're together.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

A Sag is willing to travel across the country and even the WORLD to come see her BFF. She loves to travel and see new places.

So even though she’s sad you left, she is ecstatic that you moved to a tropical island (or a busy city full of cute guys).

And she can’t wait to explore with you. She loves to go on new adventures with her friends and wants to know everything about your new life. She knows that the distance will make your friendship even stronger, but only because she puts in the hard work.

No matter where her friends end up, she stays curious and supportive, and is one of the BEST at keeping in touch.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

For a Capricorn to keep in touch, you have to be pretty close to each other. She sets her standards for friends high because they inevitably will become family.

And just like her family members, she will hold on to you till her dying days.

When it comes to actually keeping in touch, she is very organized. She doesn’t want any relationships to fall through the cracks. So like a responsible adult, she stays on top of her communication.

And let me tell you, you are lucky if she keeps you around. She gives the best damn advice ever. And will guide you through adulthood and all your breakups. God bless her!

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces knows how to nurture a friendship better than any other sign. And that doesn’t change when one of her besties moves away. 

It doesn't matter if you call during dinner, or at 3 in the morning, she will be there to talk. She is selfless and is always willing to lend an ear whenever you need her.

She’ll probably want to Skype, though, because she prefers visual media. And she will definitely show off her newest creative endeavor.

Whether it’s a new song or a cute scarf from her recently acquired knitting obsession, she will share it. And she expects a full account of your life and hobbies since you left.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Look, Scorpio loves you and she TRULY values her friendships, but because she's so loyal (and expects everyone else to be the same) it can be hard for her to keep the communication alive when she's not getting the same back.

Scorpio really lives by the saying "an eye for an eye", so if you one day forget to call her back after she left that voicemail telling you how much she misses you, you can be sure as hell that she's not about to pick up a few days later.

It'll be the beginning of the end for her. Long distance is a tough feat for a Scorpio.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libra is a bit wishy-washy when it comes to staying in touch with old friends. On one hand, she's a people pleaser, so if you reach out to her, she's bound to hit you up right back and ask you about EVERYTHING going on in your life.

But she's not one to DO the reaching out. 

Believe it or not, Libra is a bit of a loner when it comes to communication - she's better at getting OTHER people to do it, but when it's left on her shoulders, things get a little dry.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is pretty emotional, so when it comes to you leaving her to travel across the country, she's going to be pretty damn bitter about the whole thing.

She's sentimental and sensitive, so she may randomly tag you in old pictures on Facebook and comment on a few things here and there, but honestly if it came to actually calling you up on the phone, she's probably not going to be interested.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries is a go-getter, so when someone leaves her side to lead their own lives, honestly, she's going to do the same thing. Strong bonds with people aren't really the things that will hold her down.

It can be a good and a bad thing - obviously bad for your friendship if it starts dwindling, but good in the fact that she's going to be understanding of you doing your own thing now. Because she understands how that is ... she's doing it too.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini will always be there for you if you come back home to visit - she's ALWAYS down for fun and catching up. But she can be really indecisive, which means that when it comes to actually reaching out to YOU, that's probably not going to happen anytime soon.

She tends to overthink things, so if you left and she's contemplating contacting you after a while, she's more likely to talk herself out of it in fear that you've changed too much for her to handle. She's better on her home turf.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo may be good at paying attention to the small details of life and understand what it takes to keep your friendship alive, but her shyness will 100% get in the way of her actually doing it. 

Typically, if you move away or if she's going off to start a new life, she's prone to diving into that full-time and leaving the past in the past.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is a lot of things, but good at showing and expressing her emotions is NOT one of them. Unfortunately, if your friendship has been dwindling, if you're leaving it up to her to save, then it's probably a lost cause. 

She runs from emotional expression, can be temperamental and uncompromising, so keeping in touch over long distances where you're relying on phone conversations or awkward Skype encounters is probably not ogoing to work.
