How to Keep a Long-Distance Relationship Exciting
Nobody said long-distance relationships were easy, but the distance doesn’t have to damage the relationship either. Apart from regular video chats and phone calls, 5-Minute Crafts is listing some of the most unique activities you can do with your partner virtually to keep your long-distance relationship fun.
Virtual date ideas
1. Watch movies or TV shows simultaneously together.
There are a lot of ways to watch a movie or a TV show together. Many couples stay in contact while watching it at the same time as they talk on the phone, instant message each other, or use webcams. You can also physically rent the same movie and watch it simultaneously or just stream it online at the same time. There’s also the option of using Teleparty to stream the same movie from any OTT platform together.
2. Sing karaoke together.
You can try this fun activity by singing karaoke duets over the internet. Try apps like Smule on your phone. These apps will record you both at the same time, and you can sing along to your favorite songs and create unforgettable memories with your beloved.
3. Go on a virtual vacation together.
You can visit any place with your partner virtually in the comfort of your own home. Choose places you’ve always wanted to visit together. There are websites like 360Cities.net that showcase sites in the form of virtual reality.
4. Order each other’s favorite dishes, get it delivered to your places, and enjoy a virtual date with your love.
Make the best use of food delivery companies like UberEats or GrubHub and order your beloved’s favorite dish to be delivered right to their door. Planning a surprise virtual date will make your partner feel more special.
1. Send long distance relationship bracelets to each other.
These Bond Touch bracelets will let you exchange touches with your partner no matter where in the world they are. All you have to do is touch your bracelet and your partner will see their bracelet light up and feel it vibrate with every touch. It’s a simple way to say you miss them without turning your phone on. It’s way less distracting and so simple.
2. Gift them with a star map of the night you met.
The Night Sky will map out the location of the stars of any particular date or location in the past or future. You can gift this star map to your beloved, showing any special date, like the first day you met, your first kiss, proposal date, wedding date, and so on.
3. Send each other handmade gifts.
Handmade gifts feel more personal than readymade ones available online. This is because you invest your own effort to make your partner feel special. You can send them “open-when” letters when the distance between you becomes unbearable. Or you can make them a jar filled with words about your happiest memories together.
4. Send them your scent.
Smelling your “partner’s scent” can evoke very strong emotions. So if it’s been a while and you haven’t seen each other in a long time, you can send them your scent, either on a piece of felt or on your own clothes, like a hoodie.
Other fun ideas
1. Make a website that shows the journey of your relationship and special moments you’ve had with each other.
You can also create a website that showcases your relationship with your beloved to surprise them on your anniversary, their birthday, or any random day by sending the link. If you are about to get married, this can be a great way to invite your guests to your big day. You can also add events, contact details, venues, and everything you typically would include on a wedding invitation. It can save you paper and money as well.
