I would just realize that routine is the death of the LD relationship and that there must be new things to keep it fresh: love letters (on actual paper), photographs sent back and forth, gestures that assure each other that the other is being thought of. And most importantly, you should find friends, activities and other things that keep you from becoming too attached at times when it’s not so convenient.
I would agree with enabledcookie, after 5 years of a LD relationship, love letters are nice but not essential. We look forward to talking to eachother everyday. Sometimes theres not much to say, but it is important for us to talk about everyday stuff.
I would keep making dates with each other. Like both stay in on a Friday night. Get all dressed up, and light some candles. Get on the webcam. Both rent and watch the same movie at the same time. And just enjoy each other’s company.
*Update! I posted this question 2 years ago, and I’m tickled that I’m still getting answers! Just to let all you wonderful, helpful people know, we just celebrated our 4 year anniversary a few weeks ago, and have been cohabitating for the last 2 years.
In case anyone else is looking for the same answer, really, the best advice I can give is that if it’s meant to be, be patient. If you both mean a lot to each other, things will work out.
That said, Aphasic, we still have date nights. :)
