Living apart from your partner in another city or country isn’t easy on the heart and mind.

When you’re in love, you yearn to see your partner as often as possible and face-to-face interaction is easier to access.  But when you’re living apart from each other, you have to find different ways to connect, which include keeping in touch as often as possible.

Psychologists say that the first step to making a long distance relationship work is communicating your expectations and making sure that the relationship is built on trust. Both of these points are the foundation of any relationship, and they are important for couples living apart because they serve as reassurance that the relationship will remain intact despite of the long distance.
