Have changes in communications technology altered the way college romances endure summers of separation?
Once upon a time, a boy and girl who grew close while at school had just letters and occasional phone calls to stay connected while back home (in two different places) for the summer. Oh, maybe a visit or two could be arranged. But mostly, he was here and she was there.
Now, of course, kids could text each other 100 times a day. That wouldn't necessarily ensure full disclosure about, say, summer flings. But it certainly would be different than the old model, which featured days and days of zero contact.
