I think we should have a thread to share recommendations on how to keep it interesting. I'm only a two-hour drive from my girlfriend because we're going to different schools. I'm aware this isn't as bad as it could be because I do see her a lot, but I think it still classifies as long-distance. This is a recommendation I read once and I think it's a wonderful idea: Buy the board game Battleship. Keep one set of pieces and a game board for yourself and give the other pieces and board to your other half. Play over the phone or with a web cam. Anybody have any other ideas? Even if you aren't in a long-distance relationship currently and you have been in the past, please share your ideas so we can all have some more successful relationships. Dan.
