Dating someone who lives far, far way can be a big drag, but believe it or not, there are ways to make a long distance relationship work.

I speak from experience.

Way back when, when my husband and I first started dating, we had a long distance relationship for THREE years!

Yes, three!

We really, really cared for each other and so we put the effort in and made it work.

Now, we’ve been together for a total of 14 years and have been married for seven.

We must’ve done something right!

So, if you’re dating someone who lives a far away, rest assured that there are ways to make a long distance relationship work.

Here’s my advice on the subject.

1. Talk Every Day

One of the key ways to make a long distance relationship work is talking.

Even if you have nothing to really talk about, you should make it a point to talk to each other once a day.

Your conversation doesn’t have to be long or even have to be about something monumental;

a simple phone call to say goodnight, I’m thinking about you and I love you is all that is needed.2

2. Write Letters

Texts, emails and Facebook messages are a great way to communicate, but they aren’t really romantic.

Send your long distance lover good old fashioned hand-written letters every once in a while.

A hand-written letter received in the mail shows that you really took the time to show how much you care – and that you really, well, care.

Plus, they are great keepsakes to hold onto.2

3. Talk about Each Other

Another great way to keep your feelings for your long distance love front and center is by talking to others about him or her.

Not only are you letting the world know how amazing your other half is, but you are reaffirming how amazing you think your other half is.

Plus, when he or she comes to town, your friends will be able to say, “I’ve heard so much about you,” or “I heard you got a new job,” or whatever the case may be.
