Don't View Distance as a Death Sentence For a Relationship
For some people, absence really does make the heart grow fonder, while for others, it may be out of sight, out of mind. If you're involved in a long-distance relationship, you'll each have to make a great effort to keep the spark alive. What that looks like is different for each couple. Be sure to check in with each other consistently, schedule time to connect, pay attention to each other's love languages, and get support from those closest to you. Even counseling may help. Think of fun ways to spice up your video calls, and exchange emails, letters, or gifts. Share what's going on in your life and how current events may be affecting you, and encourage your partner to do the same. It won't always be easy, but that could also be a good thing. Hard work equals growth.
