A long distance relationship is a great way to connect emotionally with your partner. With the daily stresses of life and the impact of being apart, time away from one another can be a great opportunity for you and your partner to learn more about one another, share every day experiences while creating opportunities that the two of you will enjoy once you are together. Bonding with your partner is a great way to reaffirm your commitment to one another making your time apart more useful and sentimental.
