As new technologies are developed, it is becoming easier and easier for couples to make long distance relationships work. Today we’ve got social media sites, texting, chatting, web phones and webcams to help us keep in touch with our distant loves. Imagine what things must have been like in the days where long distance couples could only communicate via telegram or homing pigeon or, even worse, back in the Stone Age when they couldn’t communicate at all!
A new infographic from video chat app Rounds called The Evolution of the Long-Distance Relationship explores the ways in which technology has developed throughout history to make long distance relationships easier. It has never been easier to make a relationship work across state lines, or even across oceans, than it is today. These days couples can share photos, send emails, text and video chat and even play games together. Check out the infographic below to see how technology has developed to bring us, and our long distance relationships, to this point.
