1. Every visit is like a mini-honeymoon. You plan what you’re going to do together for months in advance and then when the time actually comes you throw all plans out the window and savor your time together while it lasts.
2. You can’t avoid your problems. Instead of making out to ignore your issues you have to actually discuss them — there’s no dancing around them.
3. Speaking of problems, you learn to communicate your issues better. In long distance there’s no such thing as storming out the room to let them know you’re upset. It’s hard enough to read their mind when you’re sitting next to the person but it’s nearly impossible over Skype or through text message. Long distance forces you to tell the other person when you’re upset so that you both can talk through your issues and figure it out together.
