Being in a long distance relationship, I quickly figured out different ways to keep in touch with Neil while I’m here teaching English in Korea. I’m not talking about calling cards and emails, but other methods of communication.This could be a double edged sword in that it could help you keep in touch with your friends and family, yet also leave you missing them even more. I want to share with you what Neil and I did to make our long distance relationship work.
One thing we used as often as possible was Facetime. It’s essentially the same thing as Skype, except for Macbooks, iPhones, and iTouches. I prefer it over Skype because it’s easier to access, there are fewer lag moments, and you have more privacy than Skype. For example, in Skype other people can call you while you’re in the middle of a call. You can use Facetime as long as you have a wifi connection.
