    You’re given some great tips here! When my husband and I had just started dating, I moved 2,000 miles away. I wound up moving back after just a few months, but those 5 months were really hard. It can definitely be costly to see each other regularly, and I agree that it is important to discuss money. I love your jelly bean jar idea. That is such a thoughtful gift!

    Great information here. Sharing the costs is a great idea. Also, gathering as many frequent flyer points etc as possible to help reduce travel costs.

    A long distance relationship has its own challenges, though as the adage goes, distance also makes the heart fonder! Apart from the distance and staying apart financial issues are important too. You have talked about some really sensible and practical measures here. Meeting each other halfway is something I found really interesting, it only reduces the expenses involved, it also makes for a nice experience in a new place.

    I think you have brought out some very pertinent points here. It is very important to talk about and share expenses when you are in a long distance relationship. That point itself can make or break a bond. And I agree that meeting halfway is not the most optimal solution. Whereas one person traveling definitely is.

    Oh yes, I too used to be in a long distance relationship. We did pretty much all of the things from your list, great advices! We did meet in a half way couple times, but mostly we visited each other. It really does put your relationship in a test when you are apart, but when you get to be together finally, you know it’s a real deal. For us it was worth it, we have now been married for 7 years.

    You gave really great advice! I agree about the miles as well. With all the credit card options today there are some really great ways to earn miles on everyday expenses!

    I agree with all your points here. Long distance relationship is tough and we encounter many challenges, but sweeter each time we are together!
    We never talk about money and expenses (especially I’m with my French guy!), and we share on expenses – though I find him sometimes frustrated when he realized he spend less 😀

    I had my fair share with long distance relationship. My “ex” partner was from Belgium and I really planned it 6 months before. It was a fun journey. Long distance relationships are difficult but it takes patience and love to make it work. Mine work for a long time.

    And what to do if you’re both broke living half a world away from each other? But the post does provide some great tips though. Thanks.

      Patience and compassion is the key when it comes to maintaining a LDR.
