Keeping the spark alive
You haven’t seen your beau in what feels like an eternity, and it is starting to weigh on you. You begin to question whether what you guys have is worth fighting for. You are no longer as excited about them as you were before and you know that the distance has everything to do with it. Is it going to work out?
It is a train of thought that anyone who has ever been in a long-distance relationship has had. It comes when the distance starts to take its toll on the romantic aspect of the relationship. The solution is to do your best to keep the spark alive and make things interesting. If you have no idea where to start, here are a few ideas that might come in handy.
Six ways to show your love despite the distance
Put it in writing
Writing each other letters and love notes is a great way to express your emotions in an uninhibited way. You could send it the traditional way via post for an old-fashioned romantic vibe. Or you could send an email if the message is what matters most to you. Either way, getting to see each other in that vulnerable state will remind you why you are still together.
Dote on each other with gifts
Just because you are hundreds or even thousands of miles apart, it does not mean that you are off the hook as far as gifts are concerned. Doting on each other like this is one of the most effective ways to maintain the spark. Send him a nice watch to remind him that he is on your mind all the time. Or order some food and have it delivered to her when you know she is working late and might not get time to cook.
The element of surprise is compelling when it comes to long distance dating. That is because a lot of it involves routines. Routine calls. Regular visits. It can get pretty dull. So if you want to be romantic then surprise your Latvian woman by showing up at her door!
Unscheduled texts and calls
If the whole showing up unannounced thing might not be too pocket-friendly, then keep in line with the theme of surprises through unscheduled communication. Send her a text at work. Or call him in the middle of the night to remind him that you love him.
Get creative with your LDR date ideas
There is so much more you can do to keep the romance alive than video chats and letters. If you are willing to think outside the box, you can go on a bunch of dates without distance being a hindrance. It could be anything from a scavenger hunt or virtual hunted house tour to a movie marathon.
Send him/her food or drinks
Food always makes things better. So do drinks. So since you cannot join each other for a romantic dinner, why not take the meals to each other? With all the food delivery services there are these days, all you have to do is make a call, pay and have your bae well fed.
