Discuss the future
Talk about your jobs, loved ones
and where each of you ideally wants to end up living. Long distance is hard going and you need to make sure that ultimately you want the same things and to end up in the same place.
Communicate a lot
When you’re not seeing someone regularly it can be easy to worry about trust, which isn’t good for either of you. Instead agree which form of communication best works for you and do it regularly to keep each other reassured of your commitment.
