I met a girl online (not through a dating site) 9 months ago and we hit it off right away. Unfortunately, we live about 1,000 miles away so talking online/Skyping has been only only means of communication. The past couple of months, we chatted everyday and then I flew out to see her a couple weeks ago for a few days.
We established that we liked each other. However, she is not sure how much I actually like her. I think it was because I had a hard time showing how much I did when I was around her, which has always been that way when I first meet someone in person. Also, she has some trust issues which is why she's still not sure if we should date.
I'm willing to give the LDR a chance and I think she will too when she's ready. We'll still chat but I feel like just doing that won't be enough or those feelings will dissipate over time. So I was wondering what I could do to show her how much I truly like her. She said she needs me to "show" her that i do and I can't do that being 1,000 miles away. I don't plan on visiting again until March but so much could happen in that period of time.
So any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Text messages do wonders. They let her know you're thinking about her even though you're so far away. My guy and I are 2000km apart and that's really the only way he can show his affection for me - cute texts that let me know I'm on his mind.
Something to keep in mind is that, in an LDR, you gotta be vocal about your feelings. She wants to hear how much you care for her, even if you just repeat the same line day after day. She knows you like her, but based on my experience, when you live far apart from your S/O it's too easy to forget how much you mean to them.1
