Bindi Irwin has been killing it on Dancing With the Stars and has quickly earned the adoration and support from fans, viewers and the judges -- but how is the stress of the show affecting her relationship with boyfriend Chandler Powell?

Chandler flew into Los Angeles to support Bindi two weeks ago, but the couple has been making their relationship work long distance ever since.

Forget Instagram or email, it looks like handwritten love letters really are the way to go for this super-cute couple.

"I am one of those old fashion people and I love to write," Bindi said, revealing that she keeps it old school when it comes to expressing her emotions to Chandler. "So, I write a lot. Like hand write letters. I write lots and lots of letters."
