However you do it, be conscious of the costs involved and try to apportion them in a fair manner.
It can cause resentment if one of you foots the bill for everything.
Just remember: this is a note, not a Talmudic passage to be read and re-read for every hidden nuance, message and subtext.
(Being overly analytical can be a real burden here.) If you have an issue to resolve, try to do it over the phone or in person. To cut down phone costs, try calling your Beloved One when you know he or she won't be in – and leave a "thinking of you" message on voice mail.
Late-night talks and thoughtful letters can convey a lot of what is most important in the long-term: your goals, values and dreams.There are different kinds of relationships across the miles and they require different things. Wonderful at your friend's wedding in Wisconsin – and you live in Biloxi. Wonderful you've been dating for five months in Biloxi gets sent to Chicago for a six-month assignment.Or, worse yet, his dream job moves there permanently and you don't want to choose between your own dream job (still in Biloxi) and your dreamy boyfriend. You and Wedding Wonderboy are getting to know one another across the miles, while the relocations take away a known quantity.On the other hand, be careful about relying on e-mail to resolve conflicts.The problem here is that e-mail feels as casual as a phone call, but it's permanent. Tone, intentions and content can all be easily misconstrued.If you need less, try to be a little more communicative than you might tend to be. For instance, if he wants to talk daily and you don't, perhaps you can commit to sending a one-line loving e-mail each day, just so he knows you're thinking of him.
