Every relationship faces ups and downs especially when you are living miles apart. Long-distance relationships come with their own set of difficulties and obstacles. It is always more challenging when you get into a fight and the distance can't let you reach each other. It doesn't matter if you are living in different cities, countries or continents, every long-distance relationship requires efforts to be taken from both the partners. There are a few creative ways to keep the spark alive and we have curated them together for you.
10 Relationship Tips To Keep Your Long-Distance Relationship Going Smoothly
1. Have Occasional Dates
Even though you may not be face-to-face, plan an occasional virtual date night where you get dressed up and have a video call to see each other like a real date. You can wine and dine and have a romantic time together via video calls.
2. Attend Calls Regularly
Always keep your phone ringing so that your partner is able to reach you immediately. May it be for good news or bad, it is always better if you are available for them at all times.
3. Write Letters
Writing letters or postcards may be totally old school but sending a handwritten letter is a great gesture for your loved ones.
4. Send Self-Care Gifts
The best way to indulge your partner from over miles away is to send a self-curated care kit with all the luxury products from bathing salts, body lotions, and sheet masks to candles and munchies.
5. Have Occasional Video Calls
We know that during a work week, video calls may be difficult while you run around but you can plan to have video calls over the weekends. Seeing each other, even if over video is a good way to feel connected.
6. Plan Movie Nights
It's possible to plan movie parties over OTT platforms. So why not plan occasional movie dates where you both watch your favourite rom-com together?
7. Talk Dirty And Keep It Spicy
It may not be possible to be intimate regularly, but you can always find ways to keep it spicy. It will also build a great deal of anticipation for your next actual meeting.
8. Send Them Flowers And Cookies
Who doesn't love a fresh bouquet of flowers or a box of cookies? Send them their favourite flowers if they are having a bad day or surprise them with a box of cookies before an important day.
9. Cook A Meal Together
There is no better way to connect than over food. Make a list of all the required ingredients and send it to your partner well in advance. Then over a video call, prepare your favourite meal together.
10. Plan A Surprise Visit
This would be the ultimate surprise for them to have you visit them when they least expect you to. We know this would require a lot of planning, but there is no harm once in a while to spoil your partner with your surprise visit.
