Keep your long distance relationship alive with these tips.
1. Know that you guys will always be there for each other
Life gets incredibly busy sometimes, but at the end of the day, just know that your BFF will always be there for you and vice versa. Even though you might not get to chat or catch up every day, next time you get to see each other, it will still feel like you guys were never even separated to begin with!
2. Plan a Face Time hangout
Set up a day where you and your BAE are going to be doing the same thing, just in different places, and go through your day together on FaceTime. While you both are eating at separate cafes, it will still feel like you’re together since you’re both enjoying your meals at the same time.
3. Care packages
Care packages aren’t only for people in college. Is your beau at camp? Or on a super long vacation? Sending over a little package of things that say “I miss you!” always touches everyone’s hearts.
4. Give your lover calls
Okay, we know that picking up the phone and calling someone may sound pre-historic to us now that we have things like FaceTime and Skype, but there is nothing like hearing your friend’s voice rather than reading a text message from them.
5. Visit each other
Whether you visit your friend at his / her dorm, or drop by with your friend’s favorite snack at his / her house, visiting each other whenever possible is the best way to strengthen that excellent friendship you guys have! Bonus points for surprise visits because those are awesome!
6. Let them know that you’re always thinking about them
There is nothing better than having your BAE wake up to a text saying “Hey, this made me think of you!” It will totally make their day!
7. Snapchat is your best friend
Saw something that reminded you of that hilarious all-nighter you pulled with your friend during a sleepover? Snapchat a photo of it to your love and you will instantly feel connected and like you guys are with each other. It’s amazing how Snapchat has made long distance friendships possible because you’re able to snap a pic, say “Wish you were here!” and you’re good to go!
