At the time we were both using Tinder. and we matched on the day he left. We spoke for two weeks until he decided to come back to meet me. We have been long distance relationship for about a year and doing back and forth.
Distance made us message each other about important things and we both find that writing help expresses ourselves with more clarity, so we have developed good communication and trust from the very beginning. Also every time I would go visit him or he’d come to visit me we could dedicate each other most or all of the time.
