Right about now, the excitement of starting another year of college is starting to die down. I’ve seen and hung out with all my friends, turned in a few papers, and read a couple of books (English major!). I think I’ve completely settled in—which is great, unless you’re in a long distance relationship, because this is when it really starts to sink in that you’re not going to see your best friend for months! I was in a long distance relationship (LDR) for two years, and I think I’ve got some creative ways to help. Fellow Lovelyish blogger Alex also has her tips here.
Schedule specific times to talk.
Schedules can get hectic quickly. This way, you can plan your schedule around a definite time to talk. Although it might feel weird at first, you can spend the most time hitting the books or hanging out with your friends instead of constantly bailing on them or your significant other because awesome plans come up.
