Olympic figure skater Adam Rippon is giving fans a relationship update.

Speaking with People magazine this week, the "Dancing with the Stars" champ is opening up about his long-distance relationship with Finnish real estate broker Jussi-Pekka Kajaala.

"The time apart is hard," he said. "But we have a lot going on, so we make it work."

The duo infamous met on Tinder last fall and Rippon, 28, confirmed they were dating back in April. The athlete told the magazine Kajaala is working on permanently relocating to Los Angeles, where Rippon resides. Rippon added that the move is "a little harder than you think" thanks to bureaucracy and red tape. For now the men are spending time together when they have the chance. Kajaala, who can work remotely, usually spends a few weeks at a time in the U.S.

"He's been going back and forth a lot," Rippon said.

Even though things are going well with the relationship, the skater told People that they don't plan on tying the knot anytime soon. They first want to get their own place together.

When they are together, the couple often share sexy photos of each other on Instagram. Check them out below.
