Before he moved, we had joked that those i Phone commercials showing couples sharing intimate moments as they Face Time from opposite ends of the world would be our lives.

But after many months of anxiously glancing at my phone during work or dinners with friends to see if boyfriend was texting me, I realized that the devices and apps that were supposed to bring us closer together were actually driving us apart.

An estimated 75 percent of college students have engaged in a long distance love at one point or another, and about three million American adults in relationships live apart.

It’s one of the many reasons Americans are waiting longer to marry, according to research by Jeffrey Arnett, a professor of psychology at Clark University: men want a partnership with equals and therefore want women to pursue their own career goals. A recent Wall Street Journal article tells the tale of a couple that spent the better part of five years in a long distance relationship as they pursued their separate degrees and careers.

Of course there are ways technology has made long distance relationships much more manageable.

I can call my boyfriend every day without having to worry about massive phone bills.

That unfortunately means more geographically-challenged relationships. They planned visits around their separate lives, probably in a Google Cal — another modern invention that’s made relationships simpler. A study from Cornell published in June found that couples in long-distance relationships feel more intimate with their partners than those who live in the same area.

They value what little time they have together — during visits or over the phone — so greatly that they optimize those moments emotionally.

They didn’t feel guilty when they missed a text or let down when a Snapchat went unopened.
