How to Keep Up The Loving: Creative Ideas For Your Long- Distance Relationship
Engaging in a long-distance relationship can be quite difficult! To keep things new and intriguing, take time to send special messages to your beloved on a frequent basis.
Use popular messenger services like Facebook, Yahoo, Skype, etc. to keep your love life jumping, although especially since its long distance. The added benefit of using these instant message services is that you two will each have some privacy and can reinforce the depth of your communication this way. It’s a good bet to instant messaging as often as you both can!
Get really creative by writing a letter or finding a picture of something you have shared together. Paste the letter or picture to a piece of cardboard and then cut it into several puzzle pieces. Send your long distance love a few pieces every other day in the mail and once they have completed the puzzle send some roses in celebration of their accomplishment!
You can also send a package with a cd of passionate songs you two enjoy from an earlier time you were together. Send out something sweet like fruit or candy too, and if they enjoy stuffed animals you should send that as well. Tell them how much they’re missed and how you imagine them continuously. There is really no way to mess this up unless you if you just do nothing. Otherwise, almost anything you can come up with is a fantastic way to let your love know you’re thinking about them regardless of the distance between the two of you.
Another idea is to have someone take photos of you and produce a hand crafted calendar, sounds simple enough right? Well it certainly is! Get into to the spirit of it, create a master piece and they’ll love it! Grab some card-stock paper and glue a decorative border on each side. Print a copy of it on the printer and increase the size of the pictures, then paste them to the paper. Next print out boxes on the computer for the days and decorate each day, month or week. Finally place your creation together with a nice ribbon and send it to your mate with love. Your loved one will love your hard work!
Alternately you can send your sweetheart some letters adorned with your favorite scent. Cut old clothing and soak pieces of the fabric with your scent and include those in the package and the smell will last even longer.
Nobody wants to miss an important occasion with their loved one. Who says you have to? There are ways to share the magical times together in spite of whatever distances between the two of you. If you can’t be together to share a special moment, simply send your long distance lover take out by ordering from a restaurant where your mate lives and have dinner delivered to them. Make sure you order your love’s favorite meal. Then use your webcams to enjoy dinner together.
Instead of sending your love a hand-written letter, hand deliver a personalized cd with your special message on it, and share details of your thoughts for them when you next meet. They can listen to the tape when the two of you can’t talk by phone or computer when they want to hear your voice.
Delight your mate by arranging for a delivery of their favorite flowers! Include a handwritten card professing your love for your lover. They’ll be so warm and mushy inside from your thoughtfulness.
Style and design a website in your lovers honor. Devote the site to your sweet romance and incorporate quotes, poetry, affirmations and thoughts, photographs, romantic messages, also add the history of how you two met, and any other information to bring a smile to their face.
Your partner would enjoy a virtual greeting card from you one day too, try it. Grab their email address and send them straight to their inbox as often as you’d like.
Collect a record of all of your emails over your relationship. As soon as you have accumulated at least a year of emails print them all out and separate them by topic, month or day.
Last, make a front page that connects all the sweet things that you’ve enjoyed together. Include a collage of pictures, too. Take your print to a printer shop to have the pages binded into a real book! Make sure to give your ‘book of distance love’ a title, like “Love is Sweet” include the perfect book title on the cover. You’ll be glad you took the extra time. Your love can last throughout time now that it’s in a book. Enjoy your love life no matter what.
