Excellent Ideas to Spice up your Long Distance Relationship

Couple having Long Distance Relationship

Anyone who has experienced or is currently in a long distance relationship would agree that it is really a difficult situation to be in. It is just an ideal situation for any couple because of many reasons. It is sad especially when you start missing each other. It is even harder when jealousy starts to creep in, your trust with each other becomes questionable. Each day that you are apart is just getting harder and harder to endure.

There will be days when either of you or both of you will start feeling cold and excitement can no longer be found because you can’t physically be together. There will be times when you will start getting bored.

If you are also in a long distance relationship and you feel the same way but you want to save the relationship, here are some things you can do to spice it up.

1. Pay a surprise visit

Who does not like a sweet surprise? If you cannot take your longing anymore, why don’t you surprise your partner and show up at their front door? Or better yet, show up in the least expected places or anywhere they are at, like the café where they are currently grabbing a coffee. You can be as creative as you like when it comes to your surprise spot.

2. Write a love letter

Who says love letters are old-fashioned? Yes, they may be a traditional way of expressing love but it never dies. You can write as many love letters as you like. In fact, your partner will even appreciate it better when you write them a letter because you can better express your feelings and they will feel your sincerity. This is a lot better than text messages, chats or emails. It will be a romantic surprise when they see your love letter in their mailbox.

Love letters are also a great memorabilia when you are already older. You can re-read these letters together and reminisce the old times. Another romantic way to bond, don’t you think?

3. Make time for date nights

Being in a long distance relationship does not mean that you can no longer have date nights. You can schedule this at least once or twice a month and you can do it during a video call. Both of you can prepare an extra special dinner which you can eat while you talk or while you watch a movie. The most important thing is that you still have to feel as if you two are actually together.

4. Send a care package

Sending a care package is like sending your love from afar. Your care package can just be anything under the sun that your partner may find useful like a new jacket or fleece blanket because you know it’s cold where he is from. It can also be his favorite local food or pastry that they miss the most. It is not about how cheap or how expensive the contents of your package are, it is about your thoughtfulness and the effort that you have put into this sweet gesture.

5. Avoid overdoing your communication

While it is true that communication is vital in any relationship, you also have to be very careful not to overdo it. If you talk over Skype every single day, you might just run out of things to tell each other and that’s where boredom might probably start. However, it also does not mean that you should not keep in touch with each other. You may text and chat every day to make sure that you guys are updated with your whereabouts but you can probably schedule your video calls. This will keep the excitement high especially when you have some fresh, exciting stories and news to tell. This will also make the two of you look forward to your next Skype session.

Or you may not really have to strictly follow your schedule because there will be days when you really have to talk. But, when you know that there isn’t much to really talk about, you can save your video call the next day or the day after. It’s always nice to look forward to something.
