How do you build a long-distance relationship?

KATIE WRITES: I have had a couple of chances to create friendships with people that I may see once a year, once a life, or never. I’ve met them mainly through TeenPact (homeschoolers, check it out: teenpact.com). We also sponsor a girl I occasionally write letters to.

I am no good with relationships. I have two “close” friends, and that’s about it. When I meet someone really nice, and I want to be their friend, but we live no where near each other, how am I suppose to build and maintain a relationship?

Most people seem to communicate through texting, but I don’t text. I do have an email address, but I have no clue what I would say. You could probably guess that I’m a quiet person.

How can you be a friend to someone you may never see in person more than once? What do you talk about, and how do you stay connected? Thanks for any help!
