Some of us have experienced that a long distance relationship can be quite based in Seoul, keep their relationship alive by taking photos simultaneously. So, for anyone in a long distance relationship, twitter has a great to long distance relationships where I pin quotes, date ideas, pictures, facts.
However, social media is also a way to connect in your relationship. Different social media platforms can play roles in your relationship. Obviously, they should not be the primary role, but they can enhance what may seem like monotonous methods of communication.
This is an interesting one. Personally, when I see people posting on each other's Facebook walls about how much they love each other, I think that their relationship is struggling. I think that if you are trying to prove your love to people in a public way, it means you are trying to make up for something that isn't there.
That probably isn't always the case, but Facebook walls are not the best place to express your love. So now you're thinking, hey, you hypocrite! You write a public blog about your relationship.
The distinction for me is that Lars and I don't use this blog to express our love for each other.

The way that Lars and I use Facebook to connect with each other is mostly to send each other links to things we think the other will enjoy. Like I posted a link on Lars's wall when I saw that Game of Thrones was coming out with a brand of beer.
And Lars posts Harry Potter jokes to my wall. We also send each other messages with links of dream apartments that we wish would be available in August so that we can move in to them.
Another great thing about Facebook is photos. Both Lars and I will admit that we have spent a little too long going back through each others photos It is a great way to reminisce and get a good dose of the person you love when they aren't available. I created a twitter account to promote this blog, but ended up finding a wonderful community of people in long distance relationships. I always thought twitter was a silly site, but it has actually been pretty great finding all these nice people in similar situations to me to talk to, share stories with, and give advice to.
I have ended up using it just to connect with these people in a similar situation to us. Lars sometimes looks at the account to see my conversations with other people and although he doesn't use twitter, he likes the sense of community with people in long distance relationships on that site.
So, for anyone in a long distance relationship, twitter has a great community that you can turn to for support and advice. That's why it's a really hard one for long distance.
You have to speak with both actions and words, and speak with sincerity. The best advice that I can give is that you need to tell each other that you trust each other.
Telling someone you trust them encourages them to live up to that trust, and to trust you as well. If you are suspicious of every action they do, they will start hiding things from you.
It's easy to hide stuff if you want to when you don't live near each other.
That's why you need to make a point to be open about what you do and about your trust for each other. Have something to look forward to Whether it's an upcoming visit, a phone call, a letter, or a Skype date, it is important to have something to look forward to. Something that you can count the days to each other until it happens.
When you don't know the next time you are going to see each other, it is easy to feel down. So make something to look forward to. Nothing feels as good as seeing the days in a countdown get lower.
This will keep positivity in your relationship and make being away from each other seem like it lasts less time. Talk about your life, even if it seems meaningless We tell each other most of what is going on in our lives. Even the small stuff. When you think about it, it is often the small stuff that keeps a relationship going. Of course I will tell Lars if something bigger happens in my life, like getting a good grade on an assignment, but I also tell him lots and lots of little stuff, like the corny joke my professor says during class.
Keeping a connection to each other's lives is really difficult in a long distance relationship. That's why you should tell each other seemingly meaningless things, things that mean a lot to the person who can't see you when they want to. I love hearing about anything he's doing, whether it's deciding how to best exclude pomegranate seeds from a smoothie, or planning out his future career directions. The small stuff counts. Send pictures This is one of my favorite things that we do.
Luckily, we have technology to help us through our long distance relationship. I like to send Lars pictures on days that I am feeling particularly cute, or sometimes to illustrate what I'm doing.
This helps us feel like we are participating more in each other's lives. Or if we miss each other a lot, we can ask each other to send pictures to picture ourselves being together. We send each other pictures a lot. Lars at his desk at work. Me with a pile of books.

The first successful omelette I ever made mine always turn into scrambled eggs. The title picture from this post is from pictures we have sent to each other. This is a great way to include each other in daily life without actually being together. Make contact, even if only for a few minutes You don't get to see each other often, so you have to make up for it. Lars works two jobs and is a busy guy. My schedule is more flexible, so we usually try to find time on his breaks.
He calls me on his walk to work, or his lunch break. I use him as an excuse for study breaks. We have longer Skype sessions on the weekends when we are both free. Take advantage of the little time you have especially if you're in different time zones!!

The first time around, when I was still in Chicago and Lars was in Florida, he spent about a month working the night shift. It was really hard for us to find time to talk. That's why regular contact in little bits is so great. This might seem silly, but it is actually wonderful. It is great to video chat with each other no matter what, but I love when we set little dates.
It's our way of having dates even though we aren't together. Watch a movie at the same time.
You can talk to each other and see each other's reactions. Cook a meal at the same time while you talk to each other.
