New Plans to Make It Easier

My boyfriend and I are an 8 hour drive away from each other.  He has a car, but I don't... and there is no way for me to get from my school to his.  It drives us crazy to be so far away, despite how often we talk on the phone (usually more than once a day).  We try to see each other as much as possible, but that usually isn't more than once after two months- not nearly enough. 

Then today my boyfriend came up with a great idea: movie night once a week.  We both clear a couple hours in our schedule, rent the same movie, and watch it on the phone together.  We like to react and make comments to each other when we're watching a movie alone together, so this will make it feel a little bit more like we're with each other.  I'm ecstatic to start this.  Is this anything that anyone else here does? 

Anybody have any other methods of making the distance not quite as bad?

It sounds like a nice idea. I was in a long distance relationship for a year - we lived about 3days drive from each other. We never set up anything like that - but it happened by accident with TV shows a few times - it was quite nice.<br />
Do you have a webcam? Sign up for Skype - its free, or very cheap, and then you can actually see each other - made a massive difference to me.
