3. See each other regularly

For couples who are physically close but emotionally distant, intentionally creating moments for each other is very important. Set dinner dates, lunch dates, make sure you cuddle and share thoughts no matter how tired you are or how brief the exchange. You just have to ensure that you make these things work.
