Giphy

Long distance relationships (LDRs) are just a part of life for some. Whether you're going to college 5 states away, your partner is in the military, or they took a job offer on the other side of the country you will be able to relate.

Skype is an amazing invention for anyone in an LDR. Whether it's a Skype dinner date, homework session or just calling to chat, you couldn't live without it.

2. You roll your eyes when someone complains about not being able to see their significant other for a week.

Oh, you can't see your boyfriend for five days? Wow, can't imagine how rough that would be.

3. You anxiously await getting packages in the mail.

Waiting for cards and packages can be grueling. Mail day is your new favorite day.

5. You make the most of the time you have together.

Seeing each other is like Christmas and your birthday combined! You no longer waste your time together sitting on your phones and not talking, but you take advantage of whatever time you have together to go out and do something fun!
