The keys to making a long distance relationship work are the same as in any other committed relationship: honesty, good communication, trust, and making efforts to stay connected. The only difference is that couples in long distance relationships might have to be more creative about how they stay connected. Skype, email, text and phone calls are the norm, but little thoughtful things also become very important. Examples would be sending a card, flowers, or thoughtful mementos that are symbolic of your physical presence.
