It will greatly benefit your relationship if you set clear expectations for how and how often you will communicate.
One year ago, on Easter, I went to the home of a couple from my church for a potluck dinner. Pretty soon, he told me he wanted to come visit me during the summer.
I ended up sitting next to a guy named Andrew, who was in town visiting a friend who attended my church. Yes, this great guy I’d met and connected with and loved getting to know, was Canadian. Last July, we became “official” (on Facebook and everything), and we have spent the past eight and a half months dating long-distance.
We try to connect almost every day by either talking on the phone or video chatting.
I’ve never been a huge phone person, so I wasn’t too excited about that aspect of the relationship.
A couple's devotional, books, articles, websites, or tips would be much appreciated!

We talked about all kinds of things, but most importantly, we laughed. We had a fun couple of days, but I figured I’d never hear from him again. In case you’re considering a long-distance relationship, here are some things that I’ve learned or noticed along the way: Long-distance dating isn’t ideal. Andrew and I both had our hesitations about committing to a long-distance relationship.
