Making a long-distance relationship work takes a lot of effort. You have to keep the spark alive despite the lack of physical connection and intimacy. It can take a toll on your bonding, even more, when the holidays are around. You miss your partner when you see other couples having a good time together. But you can still do your bit to keep your bond strong through the season and throughout the year. Love gives enough motivation, and some creative ideas help. Here are the ones that can keep you going strong as long-distance partners.
Connect more often
Long-distance relationships thrive on connection, and partners who stay in touch do well together. When the festive season is around, connect more often to show them how much you miss being together. Surprise them with a random text or call in the middle of a busy workday. Have long conversations during weekends and holidays and enjoy each other’s company. But make sure you have enough space in the relationship.
Make your communication count
Connecting frequently helps, but don’t do it only for the sake of calling or texting. Make the communication count with honest and loving conversations. Click special moments and preserve them to share during your Skype calls. Jot down things you want to tell them, such as your local traditions and office celebrations. Make them feel like a part of your life so that you do not miss out because of the distance.
Send an intimate gift
The holiday season is about gifting, and it is a great time to express your love. Think creatively and send them an intimate gift that reminds them about being together. Surprising your partner with an adult toy is a good idea. You can order adult toys online and have them delivered to their doorstep. Follow it up with a steamy date night over a call, and you will close despite being miles apart.
Do things together
As long-distance partners, you will probably have a lot of practice with doing things together. Thankfully, technology lets you manage date nights, movies, and romance with video calls. You can even ask them to help you with Christmas décor or party planning this season. Playing games together is another way to have a good time as a couple. You can even stay together during the holiday shopping sprees with video calls.
Drop-in for a surprise
The best thing you can do for your relationship bonding this season is drop in for a surprise. Plan a trip to your partner’s place to surprise them with the best gift of their life. If you want it to be a planned one, meeting them midway is a good idea. You can pick a weekend getaway at your favorite resort now that travel restrictions are no longer there. There couldn’t be a better way to spend your holiday break.
Your long-distance relationship deserves all the attention you can give. Being there during the holidays is the best expression of your love for each other. Follow these tips and make it the happiest one this year.
