3 Ways to Be Romantic in a Long Distance Relationship

Love is effortless but to keep it alive needs a lot of hard work – especially if you are in two different continents altogether.

And the effort must come from both parties.

But then again, how do you get romantic if you are in two different continents? How do you sweep your girl off her feet when you do not share the same floor?

Here are some tips to be romantic in a long distance relationship:

1. Have dates.
Remember special dates in your relationship – it could be your anniversary, or the day you met, and of course each other’s birthdays – and make time to celebrate them. Do something special together. Have improvised dinner dates and/or movie dates. Even when you have a computer screen and miles (even countries) between you, nothing should stop you from having special moments together. Be creative, be sweet.

The good thing about it is that it doesn’t need to be expensive. After all, it’s always the thought that counts.

2. Surprise your partner.

Snail mail isn’t all that bad. Make a handwritten note, letter, or poem and send it on snail to your lover. Never mind that it takes days or weeks to get to him/her; it will cross the oceans in behalf of you to manifest your undying la-la-la-love.

Or take a video of yourself and all the places you would want him/her to see when he/she visits. You can even make a random email listing down all the things that you plan to do with him/her when you are together.

It really doesn’t matter what you do as long as it’s sweet and memorable for your partner, and you do it randomly without any occasion.

3. Plan an actual date.

Whether you are three states apart, or three continents away from each other – getting to see each other is a must in any long distance relationship. You both should work to make this possible. You owe it to yourselves to see each other and spend real time together. It doesn’t even matter if it’s once a week or once a year; the important thing is you do it. Nothing beats the excitement and satisfaction of finally being together after being away for so long, even for a short while. This gives you something to look forward to in your relationship. The waiting time can be as exciting as it is frustrating so a countdown is a very good way to deal with this transition period.

In long distance relationships, it’s always a matter of quality over quantity. It’s not how often you are together or what you did together; it’s not even how grandiose or unique your meeting was. It is always about how great a time you had together. It should be special enough to make up for all the time you spend apart, and to make every sacrifice you make for each other totally worth it.

And the goal is always to make that special someone know just how *special* he/she is.
