In light of Valentine’s Day this past February, you may remember us suggesting the various ways long distance couples could use Skype to spend the special holiday together, no matter how many miles kept them apart. While many couples around the globe may have had virtual Valentine’s Day dates via video call, using Skype with loved ones isn’t only limited to holidays. That’s why when we saw the uplifting story of a couple celebrating their first anniversary together over Skype, we wanted to share it with you.
The 1,000 miles between Karly Sias and her boyfriend Andrew Roeser have caused them to turn to technology to keep up-to-date on each other’s lives. With Sias interning at Mount Rushmore National Memorial in South Dakota and Roeser in his senior year at Central Michigan University, scheduling time to connect could’ve been difficult. To help combat their busy schedules and the states between them, the couple decided to schedule weekly Skype dates each Sunday to catch up with each other face-to-face. Just weeks ago, they celebrated their 1-year anniversary with help from their ‘technology lifeline.’
