This is something we all are disappointed with! On Valentine’s Day, not having your significant other around is a tremendous bummer. However, it does not have to be a dreaded day! When you’re in a long-distance relationship, there are so many fascinating ways to spend Valentine’s Day, and while it may not be as lovely as being together in person, it can still be a lot of fun.
In this guide we’ll cover some fantastic ideas to help you make Valentine’s Day more than bearable, even if you can’t be with the one you love the most. Get some tips at Live Enhanced.
Send each other surprises
Tailor-made gifts in the post can be the most meaningful way to show them how much you care. Whether it’s something you remember your partner mentioning a few months ago or an item you’ve spotted on their Amazon wish list, a personal touch goes a long way.
Go on a virtual date night
With the pandemic teaching us all a thing or two about video calls, it’s even easier to speak virtually but face-to-face. Thanks to browser extensions like Teleparty, it’s even possible to stream a movie or series simultaneously while on a video call with a chat box function. Even though there’s nothing quite like the real thing, you can still share your evening with your partner no matter the distance between you.
Exchange Valentine’s cards
There’s nothing more romantic than a carefully chosen cared with a touching personal message inside. Sometimes a funny Valentine’s card is all it takes to lighten the situation, helping you forget the pain of being apart and filling you with excitement for the next time you’ll be together. Why not compile a collection of your favourite photos or even a miniature scrapbook to make it extra special?
Make a personalised playlist
If you’re feeling old-fashioned, why not pick up an empty cassette, or CD or two, fill it with all your partner’s favourite songs and send it off in the post with your card? If you both use Spotify, compiling a playlist on the streaming app offers exactly the same gesture. It’s a charming way of showing your love – and they’ll appreciate the time and effort, too.
Enroll In Online Sessions
Do you have a shared interest in a hobby? Are you both engaged in the same subjects? Then take that love you both have for the hobby you’re both passionate about and explore together. It may be a cooking lesson, learning a new language, or a tutorial on a topic that both of you are interested in. It’s entirely up to you!
Pop the question
Winter weddings aren’t usually the most popular, but ONS statistics found that the average number of weddings on a Valentine’s Day was three times higher than on any other non-Saturday during the week. If you’re already engaged, there’s no better time to instigate plans for the big day – otherwise, what better occasion could there be to get down on one knee? Spending Valentine’s Day apart can be tough. Thoughtful, personal gestures are all it takes to build anticipation for the next time you’re together again at last.
Make a Surprise Visit
Who doesn’t enjoy a pleasant surprise? Especially when your loved ones show unexpectedly at the doorway. If you think you can, just do it! We’ve witnessed adorable videos of couples surprising each other, and they’re all heartwarming. For many people, it might be a bit challenging. So, if you have the chance, take advantage of it without second-guessing yourself. A romantic surprise is something that everyone adores.
