With the virtual world now practically at our fingertips, we have never felt closer to our loved ones. But having said that, being in a long-distance relationship is still no easy feat, especially so when it’s pandemic-enforced! Having someone you love and care about living far away from you comes with its challenges.
We have put together a list of pretty darn cool ways to rekindle the spirit of your long-distance relationship when it may seem slightly overwhelming. Read on to see which one could fit right in your schedule.
1. Play the coolest online games – Team up together and slay all the way!
Get your gaming goggles on and team up for some uber-cool games online. Pick your favorite genre(s) and start playing to hit the snooze button on the routine-induced boredom. You could learn quite a lot about each other and have fun while playing the game and discussing it after. Date night = game night!
So, are you game?
2. Netflix partaay! – Snuggle up to some memorable movie nights
Movie nights just got cozier with Netflix parties in the offing: coffee, popcorn, a soothing movie, and your loved one. Everything sorted.
Watch your favorite movies with your significant other virtually and have a blast talking about the plot, the characters, and the thrill of watching it together, even when physically apart.
3. Zoom date nights! – Together through it all
Dress up for some quality screen time on Zoom while adding a fun twist to your date nights. You could have a virtual cook-off, read quotes from your favorite books, paint something cute, dance to some peppy tunes or do pretty much anything interesting together to bring out the chirpy side in each other.
4. Send across gifts – Little things that go a long way
What better way to celebrate love than to gift? Surprise your loved ones by sending them little gifts. You could send something that reminds you of their little quirks, something personalized or handmade. Even if you cannot be physically present in each other’s lives all the time, these gifts will remind you of the warmth and comfort.
5. Work out together – Fitter and stronger, together
Virtual workouts are a great way to bond. Help each other smash your fitness goals and be the motivation when the reps get harder to perform. Get your dose of endorphins together.
Move, sweat, and crunch to glory!
6. Celebrate little victories and special occasions often – Talk till you drop!
Did you get a brand new hairdo? Did your puppy “awoo” for the first time? Did your baking experiment turn out great? Dial up your significant other and tell them. Celebrate small victories and occasions together, often. They make for great conversations.
7. Drop a surprise text – Let them know they’re on your mind
Planned dates are great, but how about a surprise text or call just to let them know you’re thinking about them? Stop your long-distance partner on their tracks and bring a smile on their face with your message when they least expect it.
