I migrated to Japan a few weeks ago and my partner is still in the States. We've just started this long-distance relationship and I'm quite scared. Any tips?

The first thing that's important is to make time for each other. Whether that means talking on the phone, video chatting, or sending each other snail mail, it's important to keep up communication. Another thing that can help is to make sure you have common interests. This gives you something to bond over and makes conversation flow more easily. It can also be a fun way to pass the time when you're apart. Don't forget, that it's important to be understanding and patient. Long-distance relationships can be tough, so it's important to cut each other some slack.
