Sharing how you feel will be a really positive exercise for both LD partners and it will make tackling the distance that little bit easier. Long distance relationships are easier to handle when you know how your partner feels.
Talk about insecurities
Get your insecurities off your chest and out into the open and let your long distance love comfort you when things become difficult.
Ask each other hard questions
Knowing what your partner wants and envisions for the future is essential in a long distance relationship. Does he see you ending up together? Does he want to get married? These are the sort of question that need to be addressed.
Be mentally prepared
Long distance relationships are no walks in the park, so if you want yours to succeed, you have to know what you are getting yourself into.
Compliment each other
Act like any other couple and keep up the cuteness. Give each other affectionate pet names, tell you partner what you love about him and why you want to be with him.
