Being in a relationship with someone while living far away can be challenging, but there are ways you can still connect with your boyfriend and even become closer while being at a long distance.

When you are in a long distance relationship, you probably talk to your partner about anything and everything already.

Without being physically near one another, you guys cannot go places together and do other activities that most couples are able to do to grow closer. You can't go out on a date with your boyfriend for the night, or go snuggle up and watch a movie together very often when in a long distance relationship.
