When you're in a long distance relationship you only have phone calls, texts, emails, and Face Time/Skype.
While this may sound romantic, it wasn't very practical for those who wanted to be in regular touch and get to know each other better.
Jeffrey and Vanessa, who spent the first 18 months of their relationship traveling back-and-forth between Washington, D.

James, who started his relationship with his wife Vanessa when they were working for the same company at locations in New York and California, initially felt that their relationship wasn't practical.
