  1. My boyfriend and I have managed to survive our three-year (and counting!) relationship with 8 hours worth of travel between us. At first, it was difficult and we found the need to catch up on each others’ days. But now, we both understand that trust is a major factor in making a relationship work. And, thanks to technology, we can easily update each other whenever something happens. Otherwise, we just “see” each other at the ebd of the week or every few days.
