Ways To Keep Romance Alive In A Long Distance Relationship


Maintaining a long distance relationship is tough. There is zero physical intimacy, chances of misunderstandings are high and there is more stress on the partners to make it work. This is not how a relationship is supposed to be.

However, long distance romances don’t have to be this bad. There can be an extraordinary amount of trust and dedication provided you both work towards it with a calm and open mind. Here’s how:

 

1. Video Chat Daily:

Thanks to Skype and FaceTime (if you both have iPhones), you and your lady love can easily connect via videos on a regular basis. The thought of seeing your partner gives you a rush, right? Well, daily video chatting sessions can make that happen. Just fix up a time to call and let the magic flow – with two hearts sitting miles apart from each other.

2. Exchange Photos:

You can email, message or even whatsapp photos whenever you like! It is stupid to not make use of technology, especially when your lady love is not in the same city as you. So what exactly is stopping you? Sending even one photo a day can make her happy.

3. Plan Surprise Visits:

Yeah! If you have a free weekend coming up, book your tickets and fly down to meet your love in her city. The smile on her face when she sees you will be priceless. Trust us on that! Or maybe, whisk her away for a long weekend. Just send her the tickets and plan everything else well in advance for a much deserved alone-time with your partner.

5. Send Care Packages:

Don’t wait for her birthday or your anniversary to send her a gift. Keep sending small packages to her on a monthly basis to show that you care about her. Even sending a bouquet of red roses will be enough to bring a smile on her face.
