Know your time commitment
The differences in time availability can be a big issue for virtual relationships. The hardest thing can be the silence or just waiting and not knowing when your partner will come on. So like everything you have to communicate about it. It’s also important to find people with similar time availability, because it’s very hard when one person has several hours every day and their partner only has a couple days per week. So make sure you’re compatible not only in the amount of time you have but the time of day that you like to come on too.
