    These are great tips. It is so hard to maintain a long distance relationship, I think that it requires twice the work than a regular relationship because you have to deal with the physical absence of the other person and the temptation that comes with it. We are lucky that the technology nowadays allows us to be closer to our loved ones but ultimately it is the effort that counts. No matter if there are a lot of available resources if the effort and want is not there, those things will be useless.
