I’ve been in a ldr for nearly 4/5 months,we see eachother every couple of weeks so it’s not that bad at all but I have really down days when I just really wish he wasn’t so far away and get upset at the thought of not being together, any advice for them down days? Best ways to cope?

Best coping skills? Talking to each other. 

That might be the only way to cope: video call, snail mail, texting, random calls.

My boyfriend & I have been together for almost 5 months, we’re about 2000 miles away, Washington to Kentucky. I am in love with him, and I haven’t even met him. Some days are so hard but we like to surprise each other with little gifts like a teddy bear or chocolates, I filled out a journal for him and plan on meeting him this summer. Ldrs are SO hard, but if you love someone like you say you do, you will do anything to make it work. And that’s what we are doing.

Well said, this is how you work LDR.

Constant communication and random gifts. If you love the person, there is always time. If not, there’s always a reason.
