It used to be the case that a long distance relationship was not really sustainable for a long period of time. But with modern technology, it is easier to stay connected with a partner that has to be far away. And with the economy the way it is it’s much more common than it used to be for people to need to move to find work. Thankfully now all major social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram allow users to go live and talk and video chat with loved ones anywhere.

There are plenty of options for regular video chatting too like Google Hangout and Facetime. Remember when video chatting required a little stand-alone camera hooked up to your desktop computer? Now video chatting is as easy as making a phone call and can be done anywhere. Although, video chat isn’t the only way that couples who have to be apart can stay connected. If you are in a long distance relationship or thinking about getting into one here are some fun tech toys that can help you and your loved one stay close even when you can’t be together.
