Sure, they may say that distance may make the heart grow fonder — but that sure doesn’t mean it’s easy. Relationships are can be a challenge in general, but if you and your partner don’t live even remotely close to one another, it can be even more difficult to express your love and keep your bond intact. Fortunately, extra separation also has the ability to strengthen relationships just as much as it does to strain them.

Whether you’ve moved away from your loved one to start a new job or decided to pursue a graduate degree at an out-of-state university, long-distance love may not exactly be seamless, but keeping the romance alive from a distance definitely isn’t impossible with the right tools, solid communication, and trust in one another.
