Making A Long Distance Relationship Work

I was flippin' through Cosmo, and I found ways to make a super long distance relationship work!
-Regular Skype sessions:
This is a total must. Seeing your significant others face every day will be comforting and keep you closer.
-Talking on the phone:
Now-a-days texting is the rage, but hearing his/her voice will keep your mind at ease. Make sure you don't over-do it though. Leave enough to talk about the next time you speak.
Not even a problem.. there are so many apps these days (WhatsApp or MessageMe) that let you text back & forth for free.
-Spice it up
I'm not saying you have to go all Kim Kardashian here and make a tape, but keep him/her guessing with a risque web chat every now and again.
-Their eye only
Not sure how I feel about this idea.. but set up a private instagram where you two are the only ones who know tha password.. Post pics throughout the day of what you're doing, where you are.. etc. And if you feel like getting a little naughty, you'd better double check those privacy settings.
There are going to be days where you miss him/her SO much! Go to the gym, go to a movie with friends, get a manicure.. something to take your mind off missing the other person.
-Sexy greeting cards
It may sound cheesy but write him/her a love not every once in a while.. your hand writing and maybe even a spritz of perfume on the paper will feel way more intimate than a text message.
-Consistency is key
If he/she is gonna be gone 8 weeks.. get 8 cards to seng him/her every week.. and watch the stack disappear as a reminder of how soon they'll be home.
-Fun long distance toys
I didn't know about these until I read this article but apparently there are his and hers toys that are made specifically for long distance relationships.. may not be a bad idea!
