You Will Need

Talk about the little stuff
Squeeze in daily chats about the mundane aspects of each other's lives, like how your respective days are going. Don't underestimate the importance of the small stuff -- that's what relationships are built on.
Exchange pictures every day -- not just of yourselves, but of interesting things you saw or did. Send video of your office, dorm, or new hangout -- it's easier to handle being apart when you can picture each other's surroundings.
Assure your partner that you ain't misbehaving by sending proof of your whereabouts.
Celebrate occasions big and small by picking a time to have a simultaneous celebratory drink and send each other photos or video of you toasting.
Download "your" song as your ringtone so you're romantically reminded every time your phone rings.
Make decisions together
Before you buy something pricey or do anything drastic, check in with your partner so you can make decisions as a team even though you're miles apart.
Make graphic amends
Distance can magnify hurt feelings, so if you screw up, go the extra mile to apologize.
