Most Helpful Guy
I have been in a distant relationship with my girlfriend for over 4 years (because I wanted to do my study) and we live together now. I'm still surprised how we did this as I never believed in a long-distance relationship before.
What we did was we stayed in contact every day on the phone on WhatsApp, when we went to bed we always skyped or we called through Viber and we talked about our days until we fell asleep. We know exactly what the other was up to (going out with friends, work, party) she always let me know what happens during, or how it went. And i did the same thing. Clingly I know, but we always let each other know we loved each other and the trust was very high. Sure there have been moments where I believed something was not right like lying; We made minor mistakes (not cheating) and we apologized. In the end and we still ended up skyping/ talking on the phone in bed and we never lost the trust. Because if that's gone then there's no reason to stay together.
