Dear Gems from Jen,

I’ve been communicating with this guy for a little while now through email, text, and Skype and we both really like each other, but neither one of us have done the long-distance thing. Does it really work?

Dear Long Distance,

I do believe a long distance relationship can work if the two people involved make it work. Keep in mind open and honest communication is imperative when dealing with a long-distance relationship. You need to communicate daily.  Each person must set aside time each day to speak with the other person. Texts and emails are usually not enough. I always suggest a phone call at the end of the day. Also, time must be made to see each other on a regular basis. If each person puts in the effort long-distance relationships can be successful. Good luck to you!
