Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day If You’re In a Long Distance Relationship


Long distance relationships are really common in college, even I’ve had one. You meet “the boy of your dreams” right before high school graduation and you both have decided to keep it going even though you’re both going to different schools.

Without the effort, this day could become a disaster for long distance relationships.

They give great ideas of new social media to use like Vine and Snapchat, along with entertaining Skype date ideas!
