Boys in America kinda suck, so I went and found myself a Canadian boy who makes me the me I want to be. But long distance relationships are hard... however, not only are they possible but they have the potential to be the most rewarding relationship ever. But how do you keep the romance alive? Some tips for the modern day international love affair: 1) Make a habit of video chatting regularly. Most young adults don't have international calling, and there are so many video chatting websites out there to make it possible to call and chat with your imported sweetheart. 2) Communicate as much as possible. If your dating long distance, your not like an ordinary couple. Talk to your sweetheart, keep them updated on whats going on in your life. Just because they aren't physically there doesn't mean they aren't emotionally. 3) Make time to see each other in person. When you don't have the gift of seeing them in person daily it makes the time you do get to spend together a bit more precious. 4) Enjoy the time you do get together. When you scarcely get to see the person who makes life worth living, don't ruin it by fighting or ignoring them. 5) Do things together, while apart. While on Skype with your sweetie, watch the same movie at the same time. Its like you happen to be with them even though there's miles between you. It will give you something to talk about and time to enjoy together. Most importantly you have to ask yourself if this type of relationship is the thing for you. If you don't see a future with this person it may not be worth it. Chances are one of you will have to move to be with the other. Are you willing to move for love? So many boys/girls are local that can do everything your long distance lover can... If you can only remember one thing remember this: If this person is the one you love, invest the time with them to be there for them physically and emotionally.
