If you guys are in a short distance relationship, then plan a date in order to spend some time together.
That’s just the only way you can prove to them that they mean a lot to you. Be prepared to spare that precious time of yours if you believe they’re worth it. Wait a min… what exactly would you be doing with someone you feel isn’t worth your time anyways..?
