When all you need is to hear his/her voice, calling is a great thing.
I love Skype.
The free connection to anywhere in the world.
It saved my distance relationship. Seriously.
However, sometimes Skype is more of a teaser than a helper.
On the nights that I realllllly miss him, Skype is rough.
I can hear him, and see him but can't touch him.
That's when I need a hug machine...oh, wait - there IS a hug shirt!
On the market soon, for $500-700.
Yea, in that case I think I'll stick with the Skype - the free way to comunicate.
Still, what else can you do?
Distance relationships usually revolve around phone call schedules.
Unfortunate, but true.
Although it's rough, communication IS what saves relationships.
Whatever it takes, communicate.
