I know just how you feel! Long distance relationships can be difficult, not being able to see each other. My man lives clear across the country, we email everyday, Skype many hours during the day, send pictures....ahem....and talk on the phone, until the day we are able to come together. It's not the same as being together, but it does help. It's very difficult to be away from the one you love, but these things help. One other thing that I do, I try and remember our troops who are overseas and separated from their loved ones for long periods of time, and the stress that they must be under, puts things into perspective, most of the time!

I hear you on this one too; it is very difficult to cope with long distance love but as Angela says, skype, email, photos, etc. Do help.

I don't know your age, so it is difficult to advise. If you are at school or uni, it may be a case of waiting it out for now and keeping in touch as best you can. Try to keep things exciting, send little gifts, if you have a smartphone, talk on Whats App as you can also send voice messages which make the person seem closer.

I was in a long distance relationship, but unfortunately mine didn't work out. I'm in the UK, and he was in Italy, so we had a language barrier too which luckily you don't have. He had a good job in Italy, and I needed to stay here for family reasons, so it was too difficult for us to be together.

If you are older is it feasible to consider relocating? I know it's a major thing to move across the country, but you have to weigh up the pros and cons.

You don't mention whether you have actually met in person. If not, maybe you could arrange a visit. You could either go to her (or she could visit you) or, even easier, meet in the middle somewhere and have a nice romantic week together to see how you get on spending so much time together.

I really hope you can find a solution and that you stay together. I know it's hard but nothing worth having ever came easily.
