Unfortunately, at some point in our lives we will be without our mates. Whether it's for a short period of time like a holiday break or if we move to different cities because of our careers, being without each other will be inevitable.
Fortunately, absence makes the heart go fonder. Distance can be a good thing, however, there are some ways to keep things hot between the two of you while you are apart.
Skype is a must for any two people in a long distance relationship. FaceTime on Apple products is even better whenever you are on the go. It's important to be able to see each other's faces, and it's nice to know that they still exist even if you can't touch their face. Watch a movie at the same time and video chat as you watch it, it'll make it feel like you all are together. If you really want to heat things up, Skype naked!
Do something memorable and special for your guy before you all go your separate ways. For example, get some sexy pictures taken and developed just specifically for his eyes. Maybe even get a calendar made of these pictures and include all the dates you get to see each other. It's a creative thing that will remind him of you every single day.
If either of you are traveling, send the other a postcard of where you are, even if it's your cheesy hometown. This is a way to ensure your man that he is always on your mind, no matter where you go. Send each other corny e-Cards too; it'll make you both laugh, at least.
The key to success in a long-term relationship is that you keep each other involved in your lives as much as possible. It can be challenging and not as fun having dinner with someone via web chat, however, it'll keep both of you secure with your relationship and happy. It'll make the next time you get to see each other well worth the wait!
