Long distance is one of the most difficult problems a relationship can face, and it doesn’t matter whether you’re separated by three hours or a whole continent. When Valentine’s Day comes around, it’s easy to feel a bit down in the dumps if you can’t go out for a candlelight dinner or on a romantic date with your main squeeze. This is especially true if you’ve been looking forward to celebrating the holiday. However, if you are in a long-distance relationship and will be celebrating Valentine’s Day without your significant other by your side, you should know that you are not the only one in this situation.
Whether it be Valentine’s Day or any other normal day when you feel an extra burst of love, all you need is a little imagination to bring your significant other a little bit closer to your heart. There are a lot of one-of-a-kind methods to have a perfect date while being apart from a loved one, and this is a great opportunity to do so. Some may require you to think creatively outside the box, while others will require advanced preparation or some do-it-yourself work. Even if you and your partner can’t be in the same place at the same time, it won’t matter which choice you make since it will still make both of you feel special. Consider giving one of these kind gestures a try on Valentine’s Day to show your long-distance sweetheart how much you care.
Tickle Those Taste Buds
Getting food delivered has never been easier thanks to services like Uber Eats, DoorDash, and GrubHub. Check to see whether your Valentine’s go-to neighbourhood joint has a delivery service and if so, surprise them with a takeout order from their restaurant of choice.
Get Them That Lovely Bracelet
When your parents were younger, maintaining long-distance relationships was far more difficult than it is now. Bond Touch love bracelets are just one example of the many different kinds of technologies that are available today that make it simpler to maintain a romantic connection with a significant other even when you are not physically there. You are able to let your spouse know anytime you are thinking about them by sending a buzz to their bracelet, and the linked app even provides a place for you to hold a private conversation with them in an encrypted chat room. You are free to send sexually explicit messages without the fear that anybody else will ever read them.
Watch a TV programme or movie online
You’ve been looking forward to the launch of a brand new series on Netflix, but you want to share the experience with your significant other. Fair! Watch the same programme on Netflix at the same time, stay in touch with your friends through text or FaceTime so you can hear all their juicy comments, and even eat the same food so it seems like you’re actually with them. Even better, give Teleparty, a Chrome plugin that allows you to watch concurrently with another person (or several people) without having to manually sync up with each other, a shot.
Share sex toys
Want a hot long-distance date? Okay. There are hundreds of app-controlled sex toys for couples. We-Vibe, Lovense, OhMiBod, and more provide sex toys you or your lover may operate remotely. Since you’re far apart, this is the next best thing to using them together. Plan a passionate night in, light some candles, and let your love take over.
A song and an image both say a thousand words. Create a romantic Valentine’s Day mix with your favourite songs and music from your best experiences. After all, music has that magical ability to add an extra romantic spark.
Send a love letter jar
In every relationship, efforts are the icing that adds an extra highlight of love. Perhaps, you can resort to this old-school romance tip to win the heart of your sweetheart. In this age of technology, a handwritten letter might just be the romantic fairy dust you need. Send your loved one a jar full of love letters to remind them of you every single day.
Send a body pillow
Give your lover a body pillow or adorable plush animal to hug as they sleep if they miss snuggling. This way, they will miss you less and always think of you while going to bed.
