When you and your boo are apart for so long, things can get tough, which is why reassurance is major key. Little things like ‘I miss you,’ ‘I’m thinking about you,’ and ‘I can’t wait to see you,’ go a long way. Giving each other compliments, and letting each other’s strengths be known, rather than each other’s weaknesses, definitely boosts confidence when in a long distance relationship.

7. Put the phone away and live in the moment when you’re together.
