LDR, meaning long distance relationship, of course! So, are you involved in a LDR?
Or maybe you want to look for a possible relationship in a different state… different country maybe? Hey, don’t knock it till you try it, right?… I personally foresee some obstacles but it could be turn out to be the adventure of your life to find the love of your life.
While browsing the Internet, I found this article that helps you keep in touch with your love across the ocean and will keep you from racking up your phone bill. Download these apps for your phone that were created specially for a more intimate environment!
1) Couple (free!): This app is geared towards couples because you can only choose one other “pair” with who you share a timeline with- you can post video messages, chat, drawings and/or photos. When you are both on the app at the same time, you can even “ThumbKiss” which is a genius feature where you can touch the screen exactly where your partner is, making both phones vibrate. Clever!
2) Skype (also free!): You can either call, instant message or video chat. It’s free for laptops, tablets and even phones! It’s better than using up your cell phone minutes! ;) However, your partner does have to be signed up on Skype for the call to be free; otherwise, there is $$ involved.
3) WhatsApp Messenger (free is the magic word!): This app is a cross-platform messenger that works across all smartphones. For example, if you have an iPhone with iMessage but your partner does not, you can’t send emoticons but this app, WhatsApp, lets you! Video, voice notes and images are also included for the low price of FREE!
4) Cartolina (costs $2 but not too bad!): Use this e-card app as an email or text message alternative. Cartolina also provides beautiful and vintage-inspired “cartogram” designs for your messages. This app also syncs with your calendar, so it reminds you of birthdays or anniversaries or other important dates that involve your partner.
I thought this article was a great idea and so helpful because I didn’t even know some of these existed to help LDRs! So useful… technology is really stepping up its game.
