This myTake was inspired by an anonymous question about original and romantic ideas to do when we are in a long-distance relationship.
It is not easy but it is possible to keep the passion alive, even with an ocean separating a couple. From the simplest to the most original examples, here's my list of romantic ideas:
The classic phone call;
- Spend hours talking about everything and nothing at the same time. Make a call to hear the voice of the one you love. A simple phone call is worth a lot.
Letters of love;
- Send handwritten letters declaring your love. Have them open each letter on a different day or on a specific occasion.
- Find the delivery number of some store in your partner's city, send flowers and surprise.
A special gift;
- Customize a pillow with your photo and send it to your partner, so they'll be with you every night in bed. (LOL)
Create a Scrapbook;
- Make an album with all your memories. Photos, love texts, letters, dried flower petals. Send it later on a special date like your anniversary.
- On special occasions, be original about the gift. Make coupons or gift vouchers that your partner can redeem. A sexy photo, a video telling the size of your love, etc.
- Learn a new recipe together and try to make it at the same time, having a lot of laughs.
Go somewhere new;
- Make a video call in a public place like a park or a beach. Show them the sights of your city and make the tour worthwhile.
Plan a surprise visit or trip;
- Make plans for the perfect vacation, dream big or even agree to travel together.
Make a project;
- Change habits together, start daily training, read a book at the same time.
Say “I love you;
- In a different language every day so you won't lose the magic of the phrase.
Watch a movie or show together on Netflix;
- Turn on the video and it will be as if he was next to you, commenting, laughing...
Get ready, as if going to a date in person;
- Have a romantic date at least once a month with a glass of wine, a nice meal, romance and connection. A candlelit dinner via Skype is a good option.
Magic needs to happen;
- It's worth a hotter message, a sexy picture, a striptease... Virtual sex has to be naturally accepted by you (it is worth remembering that no one should feel obliged to anything).
I hope I helped to give some ideas and directions to all couples whose distance isn't enough to end a relationship full of love.
