I've been in a long distance relationship for 3 months now. We video chat everyday but i'm starting to get tired of it. We are both in love with each other that i'm sure and i have no problems with him other than that it's so hard without the physical contact and trying to work around each other's schedule. He's coming back in 3 months so this is only temporary and i might visit him next month. I miss him so much and I just can't imagine myself with anybody else but i just hate that we are in a long distance relationship right now. I feel bad because sometimes i seem uninterested when we do our daily video chats. Should i tell him how i feel or just try and make it work?

First off, when you're in a relationship, you're supposed to be a PART of their life, not their ENTIRE life.
Video chatting is nice and all, but if y'all doing it everyday, it then becomes a routine and obviously gets boring. In addition, these video chats are probably hours long... Try limiting communication to maybe two calls per day that last roughly 5 minutes each. Enough to tell each other how your day went and so on... Call maybe during lunch and then at night. Limit your texting also... you need to give each other space so y'all can miss each other...
When you're not talking, use that time to better yourself and focus on personal goals.1

I think you should tell him how you feel, but not in a way of leaving the relationship or hurting him. You said you guys love each other and you can't imagine life without him? Then he should be more than worth a 3-month wait, because 3 months is nothing compared to a lifetime!
But I think you should still tell him how you feel, just from a loving perspective. Openness, honesty, trust, vulnerability - these are all vital to a healthy relationship, and even more so when it's long distance. So if I were you I'd tell him something like, "babe, I miss you so much. Sometimes it's really hard on me not to be able to hug and kiss you. Sometimes I get discouraged, but I believe what we have is worth it. I just can't wait till you're back home." Use your own words obviously, but those types of ideas will express your discomfort in an honest way that is still unifying to you guys as a couple. And who knows, if you let him know you're struggling, he just might find a way to cheer you up! :)1
