9 Ways to Stay Connected in a Long Distance Relationship ...


When you are trying to find ways to stay connected in a long distance relationship it can be difficult, especially since a lot of the standard ways can get a little stale.

If you've been in a LDR and are looking for ways to stay connected, I've hopefully got a few fresh ideas for you!

Remember, a long distance relationship is all about commitment and you have to be ready to make that commitment and stick to it, if you are going to be in one.

1. Skype

I think that since Skype has come into the world, it is one of the best ways to stay connected in a long distance relationship.

Not only does it let you see your boyfriend, but it really lets you two explore one another and really see expressions and moods, especially if you are hours and hours away.2

My girlfriend and I, before we moved in together did not Skype, but had it been around when we were in a LDR, we would have!

Thank you so much for responding to me! I'm not able to visit him because of my parents. He can visit me though. We are both of age and none of this would be improper. We don't Skype. I can't talk to him over the phone because of my dad. He has told me many times that he wants me to call him though. We text back and forth and we connect on an online video game which is the place we first met.

Hi Christa! A lot of the time, a guy will tell a girl that he isn't good for them because he feels insecure. If you love him, I'd definitely just reassure him that he is good enough for you, that he is the best for you. Truthfully, if you want to be with him, do it! Are you able to go visit him? Are you able to connect via Skype or even on the phone?

Hello. Im in a long distance relationship. He's in Utah and I'm in new York. We've been talking for 6 months and counting. He's going to join the navy in less than 9 months. I love him. I truly do. He loves me back. He has been talking about coming to see me before he has to go. I want him to do so, but I know in my heart that it will hurt too much to watch him leave. It's his life and I would never ever tell him to not go. He has said many times that he wants to be with me for a long time. I have never felt this way about anyone. I want us to be together for a very long time. He has been talking about having kids and getting married. I have read that a crush lasts for about 5 months and any feelings afterward are real love. He has also been saying that he's no good for me because of some of his habits and that I don't deserve to be I love with a screw up like him. I told him that I will never stop loving him and that he is the only one I want. I just want us to be happy and together. I asked him if he was saying these things because he liked someone else and he said no. He said that he loves me and that he wants the best for me. He doesn't understand how much I love him. I've told him so many times that I love him more than anything and that I need him in my life. I am being truthful with him and he is truthful with me. He doesn't lie. I don't know what to do to make him understand why I love him and how much I love him. Ive told him everything from my heart. I'm terribly sorry this is so long. Thank you for your time
