6 Long Distance Relationship Games to Keep Things Fun and Interesting

Being in a long-distance relationship means that you have to work just a little harder to keep things interesting.

You do not have the luxury of physical proximity and contact to facilitate fun hangouts. And over time, those virtual dates and daily chats become stale.

So what do you do? Watch your relationship turn into a boring old mess or get creative and keep the fire burning? I think the answer here is pretty obvious.

Fortunately, there are many things that you and your long-distance lover can do to spend time together in addition to your regular calls and movie marathons.

Here are six long distance relationship games that you play on the phone or Skype the next time you feel things are getting boring.

You can choose pretty much any topic you are passionate about. Whether you want to show off your Harry Potter knowledge or your understanding of Greek Mythology, trivia games will offer you and your partner a great way to hang out.
